    • I'll try this tomorrow after work. As I'm a noob to these tensioners, which is the pinch bolt you are referring to please. Also it's recommended not to use a quick link for trials for obvious reasons so by removing the quick link it will in turn make the chain tighter. It's a KMC chain at present, if using a quick link is frowned upon then why are the Inspired bikes sent out to customers with the quick link attached .  Rich 
    • To be able to get an award and become british champion you have to ride in your age category which are listed on the website..... i think ( So if you're 18+ you have to ride elite to get an award) But if you don't mind not getting an award and not being "ranked" as such, you can choose whatver route you like  
    • It's been a long time since Natural was ridden and it showed! This was well and truely a day of battles. We found some amazing new (Horrible!) technical lines and beasty moves, which we occasionaly actually made! Enjoy pedal bashing, tyre sliding, disgusting points and a whole load of rocky fun!    
    • Just found this thread, what a build! I had a very similar one many moons ago... About 20years ago ?   
    • Thanks Mark. Coming from a MTB background all this is new to me and all the help is much appreciated. Never had to remove a link before or snapped a chain which is more luck than anything I guess! The KMC chains seem to have what looks like mushroom pins holding the links together, will they pop out fine using the tool? Failing that I'll just replace the chain but would still need to shorten it out of the box won't I. The current chain has been off once and been using it for about a month after the non-reuasble quick link was re-used. Rich
