Huh. I never thought WD40 would do it. Thanks!
you'd mentioned dr. bronners a while back, and i'm wondering what flavor?
myself? hemp/tea tree is the everyday, with a stash of peppermint around. that stuff is better than A/C in the summer!
I'm looking to invest in some new drops for city riding. Track drops aren't ideal cause i have to keep my hand close to the stem, most of the tie my hand is on the flat part right before the bend of my current road drops. When i do ride in the drops, i would like for the handlebars not to hit my forearms. Do you know of any model handlebars that are like a track/road hybrid? thanks
This question is too embarrassing for the forum: I was trying to remove my Miche BB and I think I stripped the splines in the cups! I was using the same tool I installed them with, Park BB5. They just were not budging so I put a pipe on the end of my wrench to increase leverage and slllliiippppp! Is there a way to remove the BB still or is it going to be a permanent fixture in my frame?
Next time don't use so much of the force.
Would you hitch a ride with the cosmonauts and
journey into 'space' if you could?

Is Angie aware of how much I want to **** her 721? o_o
The K710 was really heavy. Like 50% heavier than a normal chain. Mostly because the chain plates were enlarged for strength. They were much bigger than the standard hourglass style:
It's a really strong, remarkably quiet, and inexpensive chain. It has something like a break force of 3,000lbs. When I last bought one it was $17 and I could get it from any local bike shop that had even the most minor selection of BMX parts. Compare that to the other strongest chain on the scene the $80 (plus shipping) Izumi V Super Toughness that is special order only.
The K710 came stock on the first series of complete Pista Concepts in 2005.
The only complaints that I can imagine being said is that it's heavy and that the links are hard to remove using a basic chain breaker (because the plates are so beefy). But the latter is a one-time problem. So, to address the former problem, they lightened it up a bit with the K710SL (super light) which is just as strong.
The K710 and K710SL are nice chains. I've used the K710 and I think I still have one in my tool box. By the way, the K810 and K810SL are the same chain but with 3/32" width.
