Reply to Riders in Liverpool? 8/29/2019 7:05 AM

I'm on the Wirral but I try and get over to Liverpool as much as I can. I also never have people to ride with. Where do you usually ride?

Have been planning on giving this a go for a while, it's a pretty cool idea. I'll definitely give it a crack this week, but it certainly won't be pleasant viewing!

Literally couldn't give a shit, it's a set of stairs.

I had the Primo magnesium pedals, back in early 00, I loved them things.

I've never broken a rear spoke, but I've done three in the front

No hander 900, to bar impaled leg.

I've never been gone. On the point of style, clearly you all know who I think has the best. But a very close second for me will always be Garrett Brynes, literally based my riding on him when I was younger.

I'd never really watched any of Dehart's stuff until I bought ILTYT, and I instantly was into his riding, full on attack with plenty of style, also the song in his part made it for me.

Would not fancy touching the front brake when riding trails, that won't end well. But a front brake will be fun at the park for nosey tricks.

Edman there was too much information there, you've definitely done that before. Would be interested to see the outcome tbh

I feel like a lot of people don't understand how to drink tea and the brewing process. I personally never put milk in first, as I don't make tea in a pot, so you need to let the tea brew in your mug (2-4 minutes) before adding the milk. However if tea ... more »

I'm not sure how we've got on to this, but how can you have a brew and not dunk a biscuit in it?!! There is no better joy than a nice soggy digestive/hobnob/malted milk/kitkat chunky/cadburys finger.......

Reply to Why the hate on gloves? 2/25/2019 1:09 AM

I get what you're saying, it's another one of those things that is deemed as not "Street" and just something "Park Rats" wear, but fuck it just wear what you want like, I haven't got time for people who judge other riders. I wear gloves 50% of the time, ... more »

They've always been really good whenever I've used them.

Reply to Guard Sprocket, is there a best one? 2/13/2019 1:39 AM

I think you'll be happy with any of the above. I've got the LaGuardia and I run it with a Shadow interlock chain with no problems and it has been unbreakable so far.

Reply to Been a few months 2/11/2019 7:03 AM

I got back on my little bike for the first time properly since November and really enjoyed it. The passion and love is definitely still their, but I am definitely just a fair weather rider, I just don't get any joy out of riding when it's freezing/damp/windy/icey, ... more »

Reply to Tall Order Frames 1/28/2019 6:14 AM

I've been very happy with mine, the specs are great and it rides how I want. But, I bought mine second hand, If I was buying new and paying RRP, I don't think I would choose one, there are better frames out there, and the colourways are pretty boring. ... more »

Reply to Brakes Or Brakeless 1/11/2019 2:52 AM

I'm not arsed whether people ride with a brake or not. But I ride a brake because without one I am an absolute fanny, it scares me on manuals and stops me going fast. As others have said, I also like brakes for the different trick options it offers,
