KMC 710SL is light and I've never had a problem. I'm sure I've read somewhere that it's tensile strength is 8 tonnes which is easily enough. Most bike brand chains like the cults are rebradded KMC and YBN so don't waste the extra money for their stamp. ... more »

A standard tube up to 2.125 is fine, you can always go smaller but never larger. Take a tube out and blow it up you'd be surprised how massive they can go. The more overinflated it is the easier it is for air to seep like a balloon, but barely noticeable. ... more »

Welding parts is stupid. Example - you brake a pedal somehow, hello new pedals AND cranks strip your stem threads, new bars and a stem...and so on that is all.

Reply to Reversing Cranks 2/3/2015 10:43 AM

I have done this with the Stolen Team cranks. After my pedals came loose from trying with a hex key I used a T bar for more leverage and they have never came loose since, I even copper greased the thread. you will however have to swap your pedal bodies ... more »
