  1. My brother killed his chainring and cranks the other day. And one of his trials friends sorted out some cranks for him, as im at uni.

    But stupid kiddy friend has sold him some old muscleman cranks and bought a echo fixed sproket to go with it. But no bash.

    So... its either pay the kid and buy a echo bash or soemthing costing £35 + a bash. Or give the kid back the sproket and say you dont need it as he got the wrong thing and buy a acs front freewheel and then fix the rear hub, which is a knackered mission hub anyway.

    So how would i go about doing this? Can it be done without a welder?



  2. Not bad atall.

    Ill give you some stuff to improve on... not saying its all bad though.

    I prefer it when you can hear the trials too, so dont mute the sound...

    Seemed to be a very large file size yet not brill quality, am i right in thinking this was filmed on a digi cam that doesnt have large resolution and sound...?

    Fade out the song at the end, better than it just cutting out...

    What program did you use?


  3. M951s are the old ones <03 maybe

    M960s are the new ones >04

    I got the M960s at the beginning of 04 i think my mate has the M951 on his xc bike and well the only difference we can see is the colour finish, the M960 is a shiny grey finish like all the new XTR stuff the M951 is the same matt grey finish like the levers still are.

    Perfomance wise i dont think there is that much difference maybe a couple of design tweaks.

    Great price though, awesome brakes


  4. Michelin comp 24.1 a very nice tyre had mine for almost a year, very grippy and never got a puncture...

    Replaced it with a maxxis high roller this morning, will see what theyre like properly on sunday, first impressions real good though, had a quick ride out around campus in the wet didnt slip once (Y)


  5. Which model? havent heard of that one...

    Do you mean a platinum pro?

    Ive have the ultimax extreme (worst fsa isis bb) and well thats has lasted fine for coming to 2years. No trouble with play or noise, feels a little stiff now but oh well i dont notice once cranks are on.

    Where did you get it from, really sounds like you have a faulty one i would look into having it warrentied... just dont say you did trials (Y)

    The FSA platinum pro is meant to be the best isis bb available.

    And for square taper, the shimano UN72...


  6. Here it is with a red front rim, wasnt sure if you wanted the hub red too, rim still a bit dark at the top to do it well and to be honest i aint great at doing this stuff anyway.


    and here with red stickers, looks sweet :ermm:


    Ill try and do gold now.

    Anyother colours...?

    Also a nice side on pic would be good, in the light with maybe the front wheel a bit turned. Could do it a lot better then.


  7. Ordered a maxxis high roller 2.5" along with a 2.35" single ply for the front from tarty bikes. Ive done some meausing and it looks like it should fit. I hope so anyway.

    ill let you know what i think of them when i get them!


  8. used to use one, rather nice, but really dont like the orangy sidewalls, also pinched it quite a few times...


    Ps, just done some measuring, if the maxxis has the same depth as a michelin, then itll just fit a 2.5" might just go for a 2.35" to be safe.

  9. Ok sounds good

    Im not sure now whether to go for a 2.5 or a 2.35, my 2.2 michlin fits nicly now but there isnt loads of room, also got a cheapo high roller, 2.5" from bikedock ages ago and had some trouble with that rubbing.

    Running a koxx levelboss with echo 38mm rim...

    Wayne: whats the difference to a high roller, compared to a minion, the minion looks like it has more tread, but is it more weighty?


  10. I know there's so many topics about what part shall i get??? (Y)

    But... at the moment im running a michilen comp 24 2.2" and well its great, never pinched it and grips has been pretty damn good. Only thing now, ive been running it for 9 months and well it's seen better tread :)

    Could just get another one, but was thinking of trying out a high roller (2.35" 2ply 40a) as everyone seems to rave about them.

    One question though, how long do they last? I know theyre a very soft compound, but cant really afford to buy a new tyre every few months...

    Also do they pinch? because i really like not having to ride with tools or a bag and trust my bike is going to be fine.



  11. Temped to bring both, only thing with my video camera, my brother nicked the firewire cable so i cant upload the footage till i get one! and pc world...£10 or ebuyer 99p, but £3 postage (Y)

    Also video camera involes not riding so much although can get other people to film i supose.

    Meh, gonna be a good ride though!


  12. Looks like a good ride is brewing (Y)

    One question though, shall i bring my digital camera or my video camera? Dont really want to bring both... too much expensive stuff with me otherwise!

    So would people want a video of the days events or some sweet photos?


  13. Yay me!!! :(

    Was a great day guys, thanks! My first time riding with people in brum and was real good, gave me more confidence and i felt i improved loads throughout the day.

    What time you riding on Sat Tom? I do have a fair bit of work to do and meeting up with my lady friend in the evening, but im sure i could pop out for a couple of hours!!
