  1. The issues of others.
  2. There's so little difference between those sizes you'll be fine with any of them. Just keep the difference between L and R as close as possible, I've gotten away with far worse.
  3. I think I might want this bike.
  4. Hope you get them to change something. I never bought a Pro 4 mainly because of all the issues you've had, plus others. Only takes one issue on a big wall and that's it. They did a good job of correcting the original cracky hub shells, hopefully they do the same for this.
  5. Godzilla vs Kong was excellent, I watched The Boy 2 straight after, which was total shit.
  6. They're decent rims, just crappy paint and a bit heavy.
  7. Are the Pro4s that bad? Not heard great things.
  8. Yeah he said he basically has back ends off the shelf then makes a front end to fit. But yeah, 20 years on geometry is very different! No one is touching 380 stays on a 24in.
  9. I genuinely winced when you hit the floor, that was rough.
  10. Yeah, although 26in clearance is usually tighter, so 24in shouldn't be a problem. Others manage it no problem. He suggested an 83mm bb, 142mm axle etc, I was like.....na.
  11. Yeah I wasn't expecting that price... He just couldn't believe 380mm stays on a 26/tyre clearance. What kind of frame are you getting?
  12. So did I, he did absolutely not wanna make a trials frame lol.
  13. That was excellent, try "Bad day for the cut" too if you liked Calibre. Edit, just realised I'm about 20 months late.
  14. I owned them a few years ago, Stiffys are great too but quite hefty if you like light stuff.
  15. Spike 35s are excellent, I found the newer ones a bit too skinny. Probably not so bad if your'e light, but that extra 5mm width gives a lot of stability.
  16. Yeah I grew up with the Azonic upsweep, so I need it now, anything flat feels too mountain bike.
  17. The Clean bars are good, if they're still made, they're basically Trialtechs + 3 or 4mm, nice upsweep, lasted me well. I never loved Arcade bars, they were necessary on a 24" but I find them way too much on a 26".
  18. Weird, never seen a Hope one break. What a caliper though! So, in summary, just buy the fattest adaptor there is.
  19. Get the wheel as far forward as possible because those are some of the longest chainstays of all time. BB is pretty much dead centre lol.
  20. I can't get enough dark trap / witch house, love it.
  21. Pretty much. But an OLD Saint, new ones seem more fragile. Just find out all the brakes that are powerful enough, then pick the best built caliper, trials is too much for a lightweight/xc caliper. Never seen a Hope Trial caliper break...
  22. Funnily enough, Spode just did this, manly Hope adapter, not so manly caliper.
  23. Anyone know where these are made and if they do custom frames?
  24. I've definitely used Avid before, it's got a disinctive slit type thing on the side where the light is reflecting off.
