Daytime pic's of the new ChainSandwich:
This setup is lighter then the Blackspire Blackguard and IMO looks a bit less cobby. Cleaner look. Still loving the BBG outer bash too!
How does that go on a geared bike? I imagine itd be mint on an SS but surely thered be rubbing issues on a geared bike
Inner just bolts up to the 64bcd and there's plenty of clearance.
Lily goes mountain biking.
But what's with all the hike'a'bike vid's lately? I guess I didn't know there were so many people out there that walk up the hills. Especially that vid...it's not the fun part, but dude could have pulled the seat up and gutted it out. What's the fun of walking up 40 minutes only to enjoy 5min of riding?
(that's assuming you walk up at 5mph and descend around 40mph)
"Grandma...what big saddle you have."
"The better to distract you from my huge meats and OMG fork-no-no...my pretty."
Oh my. What's next?
OMG That dog shreds hard! Totally hits that double @ 1:45 !!!
getting tubeless tires off rim?? what in the world? how do I do this? tire is WTB weirwolf on mavic ust rim. help.
2 Make sure that the bead opposite from where you're trying to remove the tire is mashed all the way into the drop center of the rim
3 Good tire levers help - I like the blue park ones
4 See rule 2
5 Patience - take your time - go in small increments
If I don't get enough extension on xc rides with this one...nothing is gonna help.
magic stik... best tire lever ever.
progress at the bike park
Daamn, where is that? Looks awesome.
Had my first pedal slip with the new pedals the other day...pretty painful. Definitely not something I'd like to repeat (& this was just riding around the col de sac:lol:
I was looking at shin guards & the 661 Vegans immediately stuck out to me, mostly because they were cheaper than most everything else. Does anyone have experience with the Vegan shin guards, or have any similarly-priced recommendations? Preferably without knee pads...summers are pretty hot down here so less constricting clothing is ideal.
samburger, dont get shin guards, theyll kill you in the summer down there. Instead you should
1) suck it up
2) get sticky shoes
3) 1 & 2
Z11 and konarider24, are y'all gonna come ride cranx with me, rankin, and that canadian feller?
Here there's been discussion amongst the regulars at the pumptrack here that a bunch of us will be making the trip up there once everything's up and going.
As much as I drool over a pair of FiveTen Freeriders, I think I'm going to have to go cheap & get some Vans or something with a waffle outsole. My current shoes are skateboard-specific & have really shallow tread for better traction on grip tape, which means nothing for the pins to sink into.
In good conditions my pedals are still worlds better than the old ones even with poor shoes, but when they get wet or muddy they're unpredictable.
I never was a fan of the vans waffle outsole. I kind of like what DC or Etnies provides in terms of traction.
