    Seems like a lot of effort when the setup you've got now is working fine? The biggest culprits
    in wheels slipping in dropouts are a lack of grease and smooth axle bolt washers. You've
    changed the wash...

    Just for the record, the Breath, Monty, Bonz and all the other 135-click sealed bearing
    freewheels are all one and the same. In good news news, Bonz also now do a HG-spline version of
    it too so if you...

    In fairness, also seen Mike Mastroni (who did one on an almost identical pole in a video not
    too long ago), Tate Roskelley, Sean Watson and a bunch of other people do them too, not to
    mention all the ...

    Ah, cool - that's not ideal! I'll pass it on.Glad you like them though, the ones we've set up
    for people here do feel super good :)

    Teardown of a carthy lever for those interested. One thing I'm not a fan of is how there's no
    protrusion inside the lever body for the piston spring to sit on, so the spring just kind of
    sits wherever...

    its becus maguras r so much more powerfull than vsAs Jhan said, having a quick check to see if

    The narrower Conti tyres do seem to be super narrow. I know 2 people with what are, from
    memory, 2.2 Conti tyres and they're really narrow. Their 2.5s seem to be the other way though,

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
