    Except in continental Europe where they'll get you all kinds of trim.I find the best grinding
    technique is to hold the grinder by the power lead approximately 6ft from the grinder itself,
    then use an ...

    if it's not for competition it's for show yes?That's what I was getting at really - it's not
    for show, it's for me. I hate riding in front of people and usually wait until no-one's around,
    and always ...

    So I just got on a bit of a nostalgia trip after speaking to someone about a photo I shot a
    little while ago, and in the process of that ended up checking out the various photo book/zine
    things I've d...

    street= for looks, lots of spins, showey Danny Mac riding.That's not always the case. I'm sure
    this is just some OTN trolling type stuff, but yeah, there's a lot more to it than that. I only

    Craig's right (and also Wright). I could ride trials on street OK before I rode my first comp,
    but it was all the fiddly technical stuff that took points off me. Most organisers will be
    happy for you ...

    Used to use 175mm cranks on my mod, and way preferred it to 165mm. It made the gearing feel
    'right' to me, plus it didn't feel like I had little tiny baby cranks on when I was pedalling

    Then almost immediately, he started pumping out generic catalog parts.In fairness to Hashtagg
    they did bring new stuff to the table. Their rims are some of the best out there, the H2O

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
