  1. You say that like it's a bad thing
  2. Don't just buy one chain mate, get a few at a time as it'll ensure you have a good years supply if everything goes tits up again with supply. Rich
  3. Beefier gives a little more confidence it won't snap
  4. Yes that's the chain you need. How come you ordered from and not tartybikes?
  5. I don't know the exact Torque numbers for those 2 bolts but I don't tighten them too much as it doesn't take a lot of load. I tighten mine to 8nm and that does the trick, never come loose. Rich
  6. @Adam@TartyBikes It was the bashring bolts. Tightened them to 8nm and the creak has gone. Legend thank you Rich
  7. I haven't checked the bashing bolts yet but that'll be first on the list . They'll be first for inspection and clean. What's the recommended torque for tightening them? P.s the Boardman has had it's fair share of abuse on these hills, front forks have had countless seal changes due to being blown . Many thanks Rich Home from work now and just checked your website and it says 7nm. Bit lower than I thought but I'll get the parts off now and try again, this time including the bashring bolts
  8. As tomorrow is going to be slightly damp and not ideal for trials I'm going to try and find the cause of this damn creaking noise on my Inspired Fourplay. BB Truvativ GXP DUB Cranks Truvativ Descendant 7k DUB Has anyone else had the same trouble? I've tried removing everything, cleaning, re-greasing and assembling but to no avail. Read stories it could be the rear axle or even the chain but as the axle is a bolt through I can't imagine that to be the source. It isn't the pedals either as it's still there when I've tried a different set of pedals. Just a bit disappointing really since my Dads Cheapo Boardman Halfords special hasn't any creaks after 10 years and this Fourplay started creaking like a champion after a few months . Rich
  9. Spotted these at sports direct and for £14 I gave them a try. Finally a nice super comfy shinguard which are nice and compact and fit nicely under trousers. I'm not a football fan but definitely function really really well for trials. Rich
  10. I have done exactly the above, creaks disappear for an hour or so then slowly come back which is disheartening. I even nipped up the bottom bracket shells a little more too. The crank bolt does take a bit of muscle to get to torque but I guess that's due to the design of just one bolt holding the whole thing together. In the future I'd like to change to a different design of Bb and crank but a bit unsure of which ones to go for since this Sram dub setup isn't very user friendly for me. Rich
  11. Creaks can travel along the whole bike since all the metal parts are linked together. The creak might originate in one spot and be heard somewhere different. Rich
  12. Are any of you guys good at jumping? What Trials techniques are similar to the correct jumping method? Rich
  13. Have you put pedal washers between your pedals and cranks? Seems a bit of a trivial thing but it helps a lot. Rich
  14. I have creaks from the bottom bracket ( Sram dub ) but you just learn to accept it after a while. No bikes are completely silent mate. Tried everything but sometimes the tolerances in manufacture are just slightly off and end up creaking. Rich
