  1. Did you polish the rim yourself? I've got a black Spank Stiffy on my bike and it's the worst baking surface I've ever had.
  2. Yeah that'd be useful thanks, I've looked for complete beginner's guides but even those assume a reasonable amount of background knowledge, I think I need a basic sheet of essential bullet points to get me going. Yes I was told Reaper is a good way to go, I'm on the free trial, I got as far as pressing record and I could see the graphic display bit going up and down but I couldn't hear anything. I'm starting to think my sound card might be the problem, as I get that weird thing where every other time I switch on it won't connect to the net, Google tells me that's a Windows/sound card fault. Sound familiar? Ok cheers, I was lost on even what forums to look for as no one really wants to give advice bit by bit to a complete novice, I can't blame them. I've looked for courses locally but every single one is online and I know I'll need someone there to give me pointers. I only know a couple of basics like record in 24bit, 44.1khz for electric guitar.
  3. Yeah that sounds a lot simpler, this Line 6 interface is supposed to do it all but maybe it's a bit much for me.
  4. Does anyone record electric guitar digitally? Reaper etc, I've got a Line 6 POD HD and I can't figure anything out, I thought I'd be ok as I've used plenty of video editors in the past but this has bent my mind. Ideally after tips or recommendations for other gear, I've watched tons of tutorials but no success.
  5. Lol, mental, endless suspension.
  6. I don't ride mod. 26" street with a pretty mtb looking 90 x 10 stem and 2.5" rise bars. Like Ali said, if a frame needs so much stem then maybe the frame's not right. Same can be said for 24" bikes, to a lesser extent though, I hated that I needed 35mm of stackers, a 35deg stem and huge risers but an even longer headtube would look even worse. I think the Skye is one of the best looking 24 bikes for that reason, it doesn't need much height in the front end.
  7. Rotating the flat bars gives you much less adjustment than with risers so you're just limiting your options, plus they just look really shit. You need a ridiculous amount of rise on a mod anyway, makes sense to share it out between bar and stem rather than a 2ft stem and flat bars. Plus they just feel nasty, regardless of the set up, blindfold me and I'll feel the difference. It just looks stupid.
  8. I was never 100% but they look identical to Raceline Ds which I think were HS24 (but some people still call those HS22 so I don't know if I can believe anything in life anymore), the HS22 might even have the same lever body, but the 24 looks like it had the fancier blade, the 22 had a cheaper rounded one with a ball on the end. Got a feeling the HS24 might haave been just the Raceline D (yellow) and Johnny T (red). These were all pre 98 before the other colours came out and they made the best lever, then went on to make each lever a bit worse than the last.
  9. These look like HS24, red version of the HS24 Raceline D.
  10. That's mental that people wait 15 years! I've always gone twice a year since I can remember, thought that was just standard, I always brushed well but I ate and drank a lot of shit growing up like we all did, luckily they've naturally always been ok and most of the problems are out of sight. Best short term thing you can do is stop drinking fizzy sugary shit, Red Bull, Coke, Monster, Rockstar, it's all basically liquid cancer, despite how sick/rad/cool the stickers look. The people I've known with the worst teeth all love a fizzy drink.
  11. It's impressive how boring that was, given the location and potential.
  12. I don't think they've evolved, they've always weighed a ton and haven't been amazing.
  13. All bash guards are light lol. If that whole hollow machined out breaky bit was solid...it would still be light, and it wouldn't break.
  14. What was wrong with normal cranks and a normal bash guard? Never saw the point of the integrated stuff, you're just getting rid of 95% of your options.
  15. I think they really are just to shield the chain a couple of times, not actually take impacts, is that a revised version?
