The zip ties might be a good idea for hookless rims to enable higher pressures and lower rolling resistance.

I managed to open the video, separate from the post https://video-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/o1...c_store_type=1 From there I could save it (right clicked while it was playing), but no idea how to re-share, can't upload to BF? or at least I don't know how. I think all vids on BF are links to videos hosted on other sites?

At least the "Shin impact" will hurt less with these plastic pedals than a set of 80' bear traps!

Also a pretty good deal - https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...539653027607/?

Whether you're a seasoned rider or a newcomer eager to embark on thrilling rides, these bikes are primed to elevate your cycling experience to new heights.

I especially like the method of securing the brake torque arm to the fork. Not too clear on what's going on with the front axle, either.
