    how many inspired guys doing fuck all for "progress" or innovation get praise for copying
    akriggs pedal style?I don't know, how many do?

    Building wheels isn't too bad - I did a guide for it 10 or so years ago when I was in similar
    ham-fisted teenager mode as Agrade. Taking your time and being methodical is the key thing -
    you want ever...

    As soon as I heard that first piano chord I hoped it was going to be that song - I approve.Cool
    video, glad to hear that things are working out better for you now!

    Sorry to hear about your Dad dude, that's pretty shitty :(In terms of parts for your bike:these
    should do the trick.Lastly, the Arcade bars do feel really good for bunnyhops and manuals, but
    you might...

    Good call. As ever, worth keeping an eye on things like your pedals and cranks staying tight
    when new. When they're new pedals can come loose pretty easily mid-ride from doing little pedal
    kicks, so i...

    Something for you to bear in mind is that disc brakes do take a little while to bed in, and the
    Echo rotors in particular are made from a harder material so consequently take a bit longer on
    top of th...

    Mostly impressed with his ability to ride a quarter pipe. Looks good in the skate park, his
    trials skills are :hsugh:...which is ironic considering he's a two-time BIU World Champion. Is

    Cool photos Andy. You guys are officially dicks for having that much good shit to ride though.
    Sorry to have to break the news.

    There are a selection of really fun low benches with little rail handles just out of shot that
    are fun to ride too. Ali got a rad line filmed on them that'll be in the new Cardiff video

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
