Added reply in a thread knee pain + how i rode my first few meters in manual 6/8/2019 4:57 AM

In Finland we also have the same laws pretty much, but there's a nice loophole. If your seat is below a certain height, it's not seen as a bicycle

Haven't really done too many big drops on a bike but have had to teach myself to take a drop through years of parkour, and I've noticed the same basics apply to both. More speed equals less impact since some of the momentum transfers. You also don't ... more »

Last year I got a really nasty bruise on my inner thigh from hitting my bar end there really hard, without bar ends I'd have a nice round hole next to my balls right now. Get them

Riding brakeless and doing tricks is a whole different story tho. If you go with a cassette you can at least use some pedal pressure to slow down fakies, but some actually like the feeling of a freecoaster and no brakes. And if your chain is on the left ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why has no one made a fork and stem with splines like cranks? 1/18/2019 7:39 AM

It would be one of the most annoying things ever to have a poorly aligned fork/bars combo with no chance to do anything about

Had some time to spare so I decided to install most of the stuff that arrived last week. Switched my old sprocket to the Knox and added the Uniguard. Everything still seems to work so can't wait to get riding. Only a couple more

Brakeless. I rode brakes before and liked it but decided to go brakeless and haven't gone back. Brake tricks are cool and I enjoy watching and doing them, but I never did them too much for some reason. So now I ride brakeless to avoid the hassle with ... more »

I just received a package from Source, took pretty much 4 days to ship which was reasonable since some of the items were "ships in 2-4 days" items. Previous order including a frame shipped in like 2 days
