New Stuff

Today at nationals, I got some new stuff. I got MCS Pro aluminum bars and ODI Longneck Lock-Ons(I got them because I know their Kinetik's favorite). The bars are really light and nice and the grips are super comfy.

Look out for a bike shop called Powers Bike shop. Let me know if you see him. I buy pretty much all my stuff from him! His names Chad and i'm pretty sure he's vending this weekend.

Good job on those grips, they are great but turn your hands black. Can't win them all!

I don't know if he's there. I'll look to see what the vendor's names are. I know one is Chip & Dale BMX but I don't know the other one.

Lockon grips are the worst thing, ever.

True story.

If you get dirt in the bolts, they're too hard to get off, and they're just crappy.

Kinetik, the other vendor there was Coastal BMX.

And my friend has lock-ons and he's never had a problem with them.

It's a decent concept, except it's pointless weight adding, and those metal things hurt when your hands grace their presence, or land on them.

Mine came with barends that covers the outside ring, and on the inside there's a flange, so I'm not too worried about that.
