  1. why not just get them serviced? get a bb7 king of power and reliability
  2. this is not a shame. a good vee brake can perform as well as a magura, and with dedicated vee mounts they're usually lighter too. i'd invest in some better brake levers these are my favourites. i like the split clamp design and they don't end up all wobly and loose like avid levers do. best price on a pair, they usually throw in new brake cables which will also boost your braking performance. so will some heatsink vee pads. obviously a better freewheel would improve things no end as would a better bar/stem combo.
  3. i've got the saturday off from work and the woman so it's bicycle time! anyone fancy some low precision stunts? kent brighton london, maybe reading?
  4. featured on pinkbike reckon these will eventually make it down to trials bikes? could be interesting
  5. thats just the gusset the brake is mounted to, theres nothing wrong with it
  6. london ride yesterday was good fun. 5 weeks left in my current job, can't wait to get out of here
  7. attach one of these to a pannier on a more commutable mtb... and trail your trials bike behind it.
  8. it's more being in an awkward position and having a hand free from one bike that makes the distance an issue, miles on a fixie are a doddle
  9. i used to ride a fixie and hold my other bike by the stem, was fine for a mile or two.
  10. mods are harder to manual but look at flipp or any bmxer... higher bars and stem should help
  11. raised over a grand for cancer research uk
  12. got a long weekend (royal mail still running this saturday) super pleased, and i might be disapearing to mexico with the woman, running away from lifes problems is looking good
  13. drift the rim over by tightening the non-driveside spokes?
  14. trials bikes aren't as symetrical and well done as you'd always like them to be. you need to find the tightest angle your drivetrain will allow don't go crazy tight or you'll hurt your freeewheel and chain. then just adjust the non drive side to make it run. it's never going to be perfect unless you'lve got 360 dropouts. if you want consistent chain tension make a spoke tensioner or buy one of those heatsink tensioners to make up the slack.
  15. that was gold. i tried some 661 downhill knee and shin pads for trials, they were not okay, they smelt like a rotting corpse and made me sweat like a pregnant nun. The jitsie ones are good, they won't stop the pain of the impact but they'll stop the pins from lacerating you and that is what counts! they're as minimalist as you want for trials. ben travis has just won TF and needs to be senior member.
