    We used to recommend, but they don't make that hanger any more. I
    don't really know where you'd be able to get one. Your best bet might be to get someone to just
    make one ...

    The DK is the best tire if you're over 200 lbs or want to have the peace of mind of destroying
    your rim before getting a pinchflat. It's also favored for stability over the Monty, but at the
    penalty o...

    I like durable...the hopes are great with trialtech pads?Maybe I just need a carbon fork, 4
    bolt Maggie and a pineapple butt plug.With Trialtech pads they're good but you'll be wanting a

    It sounds like it might be point 3 justfuzzit mentioned, or at least similar. The part of the
    lever blade the spring attaches to can shit the bed too, it's a barrel of laughs. If that

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
