  1. Great blog, made me miss Shipley Glen
  2. Not 40 (just turned 39) but yeah I agree with what you say. The worse part is recovering from injuries, even minor ones takes ages. I don't tend to get to ride two days in a row at the moment, but it isn't really an issue. Biggest changes I have made to keep riding as I get older is eating better, drinking less and stretching a lot. Keeping that body flexibly is a big thing now, doing squats and stretches (I don't go crazy with it), even on days I don't ride means I feel good more often than not when I do ride.
  3. Yeah I think it be a case of just taking more time with it
  4. Tried that with a screwdriver but no luck, maybe I should give it more welly!
  5. The bearing race on the drive side of my rear hub stuck. The bearing race collapsed inside the hub. Any ideas of getting it out without damaging the hub? Would prefer to leave the Dremel as a last resort. Have a blind bearing puller like this and tried to hammer it out with it but no luck. Maybe a little bit of heat from a blowtorch before using the bearing puller?
  6. I get that people have to make money, but there is difference between dedicating your life to something and getting paid and peddling pseudoscience/archaeology to make a quick buck selling books or getting clicks. But most discoveries are actually pretty dull to the general public. Let's be honest a youtube video on discovering the Egyptians knew how to make cheese ( isn't go to get as many views as one on ancient alien technology, despite there only being actual evidence for one of them. Archaeology is bloody slow, there are plenty of new discoveries that challenge existing theories, but we tend not to get massive earth-shattering discoveries. They are just small things that move the needle a bit. Here are a few from 2018 - including an 4500 yr old Egyptian ramp technology - Here is a great site to track new discoveries - Honestly I think it is great that you are curious and interested the ancient world, it doesn't get as much coverage to the general public as I would like it too. The history of these places are utterly fascinating and there are a lot of genuine mysteries. I would recommend that give something like Our Fake History a try, it is a fantastic listen and I think you would get a lot out of it. Hosted by a guy that is curious about history and different theories, who comes at things with an open mind. The Atlantis episode is great -
  7. Dude, have you ever thought that the guys that promote these theories are just con-men out to make money? Plus skull modification has been around for ages, it isn't really a mystery -
  8. More Trial Noir references...
  9. Looking forward to seeing the circus stuff. I may be in Richmond in a month with work, if the stars align I will try and get to a show.
  10. I use it, mainly because it easy to keep in touch with family and friends now I am in the USA. I dn't really do the status thing anymore and only share a few things. There are a couple of good groups I am in, which helps keep me on there.
  11. FBM in the USA build custom frames (not just BMX) and I know they have built a street trials frame. They have years of experience building BMX frame so should be plenty strong enough. I have heard they are pricey. The custom BMX frames start at $535 and they have a track frame starting at $1500.
  12. Video was great and riding was fantastic. Yeah the Adidas stuff was in your face, but it was a 'Hey Danny Mac wears our shit now' video and a bigger sponsor should mean bigger concepts and more videos.
  13. I haven’t a clue about discs brake so. a) Magura MT Sport b) Shimano XT M8000 c) Shimano Zee M620 Anything else worth considering that is good value? The M6000/7000?
  14. I am hoping he goes to prison in his forthcoming trial. Won't happen though.
  15. That is some great balance, I can barely stand up most of the time
