    See if you can still find any 24" DMR moto diggers. I think Chain Reaction cycles had some
    left. Insane rear 24" for sure. The Dmacs are way overpriced and no better than a Holy Roller.
    I've never tri...

    Forged adaptors aren't always ideal, so it could be that the adaptor broke first which then
    lead to the caliper shearing as it was suddenly unsupported?One thing that appears to really
    make calipers/a...

    Nice work dude! Levelled up again - impressive :) Making those gaps look effortless too.

    Surely an 'old' design is just using the same cut-outs as each other from the same rims from
    the same catalogue? This is totally new, designed from the ground up. They're only 50~g heavier
    than the li...

    Trialtech have just released their Carthy Signature Series rims. Available in 26" only, 32h
    front and rear. Double wall and undrilled so they're ridiculously stiff and should provide a
    stiffer sidewal...

    They work upside down, it's just long term it's not ideal. Hence the flip-flop original Tech
    lever having two diaphragms, so one is always at the top.

    Awesome video Ben, I approve. Everyone else, get on board ;)

    Having the diaphragm upside down/at the bottom of the reservoir isn't ideal - as said above,
    swapping the hoses at the lever is the way to go (assuming you've got a pair of Tech 3s).

    I put some MT2 levers on my MT5/7 calipers and the plastic blade doesn't really give great
    lever feel. I bought a pair of the alloy MT5 blades and fitted them and now they feel really
    good.If you're u...

Saw your grip post on uk. I had the half nelson race face grips they are ok but open end.
The new Gwin grips are super thin and closed end with alloy cap covered in plastic, single collar. I would recommend these minus the bullshit pricing. 45 CAD

I have used those long thin grips from toyo about 10 years ago only slide on rubber grip i would use.

I now use racquet ball tape but you might rip this stuff with all your bmx shenanigans. I have small hands so only use thin grips.

Something in common, interesting
