Added reply in a thread Raw ATF 7/22/2018 2:33 AM

Dull raw with gloss clear is beautiful. Matte clear isn’t bad but it’s the little shine the gloss pulls out that stands out. Normally I like black or dark blue but that style raw is nice

Good luck it’s going to be twitching all over at first. With 33mm offset it will be hard to get that angle 17-20 maybe

Added reply in a thread Starting to lock in my manual balance point! 7/21/2018 10:00 AM

I can turn easily doing manuals. Is that what you mean? Sharp or gradual turning. It’s about knowing that balance point and then learning to lean to one side or the other and keep the balance point and the pump (with your knees) going if needed. In a ... more »

I agree and so useful for many things. And sometimes even when you get a new frame with just a few degrees different geo somewhere it takes a day to find it. That sweet spot is like some magical thing. But once you have it and then get use to it it is ... more »

Power washing can push dirt and grime into the bearings, even sealed. Best thing to do is to take the bottom bracket apart. Clean and dry everything with a clean rag. Then relube everything and put it back together. If you have sealed bearings, be sure ... more »

Sand, then 1-2 coats primer and 1-2 color and probably just 1 clear. If you don’t have a tight budget use auto paint if you have a tight budget use $1.00 Walmart paint

Added reply in a thread does removing stoppers count as modding a spot? 7/19/2018 10:40 AM

You just have to be DAMN sure no cameras see that area. And movies are not too far from the truth. Multiple cameras overlap and can easily see you. So, don’t expose your face much or a car/bike. And wax? Really? People really wax rails too. I rarely ... more »

I use 1, 2 if I am in a location I might have to really stop fast. I don’t always have a finger on the lever. Just depends on what I am doing.

Ahhh...look for cameras INCLUDING nearby street lights!!! Because if they want they can see a decent distance with them. If it bothers the owner enough they will look. By the way I don’t want to hear anything about a rail in a parking is not a “real ... more »

By looking it’s not a 48. But a bit bigger tire, not monster truck stuff like 2.0-2.2 is perfect and if you can get some 48 spline cranks do it. And yes toss on the Odyssey bars
