    A slightly lighter gear ratio makes a massive difference to how easy 'proper' trials moves are.
    I was switching from 22:16 to 15, and briefly 14, and although the 14 and 15t sprockets made
    some BMX mo...

    So this is on behalf of Cap who I don't think has an account on here - he's selling his
    Fourplay frame, headset and tensioner for 270 posted inside the UK (so around 310/$455 incl.

    The Big'un hubs only had a 3 pawl ratchet setup and I think they used the old 'Biro' style
    springs too rather than the leaf springs they use in the Pro 2/2 Evo/4s. It's pretty much like
    comparing an A...

    I don't think there are any trials bikes out there with good chain line, so adding a 1-2mm
    spacer shouldn't unduly affect that in any case. If anything, most people need to move their
    freewheel inboar...

    Ah, that sucks - I guess they were super cheap so maybe someone got on board with that and they
    just haven't updated the site yet. The Spank rims are amazing though, Ali was running the Spank

    Oh - not sure how many fucks are given by you on this particular front, but the Arcade forks
    are 300~g heavier than the Fourplay forks. The Arcade forks do have a steerer tube that's 35mm
    longer than ...

    Haha, cool - it's just gone 11pm here in cold wet England so no dice on that front. I think
    there's some weird setup with our international number too, theoretically it's supposed to be

    [ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfslY_AvhLw[/ame];)I'm there Monday-Friday, 9-5. If you
    fire any e-mails over that are Inspired/street related it's usually me who picks them up
    though.

    Sorry, I meant the red ones are $45 cheaper than the black ones. They're still $225-ish incl.
    axle, unfortunately... The geo is pretty much the same as the Fourplay forks (possibly a little
    less offse...

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
