It gets more shit. Just got word The Base (Skate The Base) is closing down. Apparently the landlord tried to up the rent by over 40% which they knew was impossible, and they have a company taking over the space. Like the sport isn't struggling enough. ... more »

That's really shit. I bought from them all the time. Loved their clearance section as it helped me build completes at a less painful price. It's also a local company to me too. I know that last year they moved down here (Selsey) from somewhere else. ... more »

From a 48 year old. I would quit whilst you are ahead. You speak of doing things to help with your joints and etc? yeah, stop riding. Anything you do to yourself now will just make your life more difficult later on. I started riding again when I was

It's the alu one. Frame is 5.8lbs. Nearly half the weight of the cro mo one. So nowhere near as bad as it looks.

You're missing the point, again dude. That's like, three times now. The title of the thread is, and I quote - Carbon rims with brakes. I said, and I quote - Unless they have a forged carbon or alu brake surface DO NOT use brakes on the rim. This will ... more »

The Dirt Bike (pre Next Gen) wasn't that heavy and the Trail Boss wasn't terrible either.

You missed the point on that post. I clearly stated "Make sure they have an alu braking surface or forged carbon". That was the point. This is the real thing.

See the alu ring around the edge? that's for braking. Now after a very quick look ... more »

It's a fake rim yes. However, it's still carbon fibre. It has done that because unlike the real ones it does not have an alu brake surface. Or a forged carbon one. Look. I agree that carbon is great in certain applications. Much more than TI, IMO. However. ... more »

I love my GT Speed. As for vibrations? certainly. Use Powerblocks or something close to slicks.

The time has come to restore frames only. And collect them. 2012 AR Sunday Funday that someone has spray bombed in the completely wrong colour.

Thankfully I have paint in the correct colour. I got these too. Total spend £48. I reckon ... more »

Unless they have a forged carbon or alu brake surface DO NOT use brakes on the rim. This will happen.

Thankfully I have a buddy with a hobby machine shop in his garage. He's made me some cool stuff. Mostly axle adapters, as the price on them is stupid. He has also made me adapters for a 12mm drop (Specialized fork) and etc. Most recently he machined

It's totally age and health condition dependent. I didn't get off to a good start running in front of a car when I was 7. Broke both legs, more importantly left femur. Back then there were no wires or pins, so I had to do traction for 8 weeks. Every ... more »
