No, almost all full link chains include a half link, allowing for the exact same adjustment. Half links, by design, are inherently less durable. Throwing more material at the problem is not an efficient solution.

Added reply in a thread I really like the look of Demolition rims, are they actually strong though? Anyone had them? 7/9/2020 9:30 AM

That doesn't mean that they're worthy of your money. You can get much better rims for a similar price. "If they're good enough for ______, they're good enough for you" is only said by simpletons.

Oh no, it definitely did. It's by far the best bike you'll ride, if you like the geo. But I could have gotten a lot more out of spending some of that on other things. I would have been perfectly fine with a bike at least $500 cheaper.

My Steadfast ended up totaling like $2300 or something like that, but it took me well over a year to get everything for it. Wasn't worth it.

Don't know if you're actually joking, but I would bet with reasonable certainty that OneEye suffers from untreated schizophrenia. edit: Maybe I should actually look through this thread, this has been brought up. Ignore me.

How does it feel to get exponentially dumber the older you get?

Sunday if you want the most durable frame you can get. S&M if you want to support 28 year old stoners with mediocre welding and manufacturing skills.

Lot of words for a couple of very generic pedals.

Lol whoops forgot about this. I will most likely sell the frame soon, but I don't think I'll sell anything else. Not selling it now due to sheer laziness. FWIW, it is currently raw with clear coat.

Your mistake is expecting them to do any critical thinking whatsoever.

Added reply in a thread Why do I look so hunched over? 5/18/2020 11:03 AM

Essentially, yes. But if your posture is as bad as mine was, you can't really fix it by just trying to be more conscious of it. If you really want to improve it, deadlifts and face pulls are the two most effective exercises for improving your posture. ... more »

How's your posture normally? I had this problem and realized it was caused by my constant slouching.

Added reply in a thread F***** my frame 5/16/2020 11:54 AM

22" is definitely too big for you. There are hardly any 22" frames on the market to begin with. I'm 6'-1" and 21" is good for me, but 21.25" would also be comfortable. The Soundwave has pretty good geometry for all around riding.

Added reply in a thread F***** my frame 5/16/2020 11:46 AM

The Sunday has a much stronger and more durable design and similar quality of manufacturing. Laird is a good welder but good welds don't make up for a subpar design. Since you're worried about warranty, Sunday will be much better as well.

Added reply in a thread Differences - male/female hub axles 5/10/2020 8:16 AM

I think 3/8" female is better than 14mm male just because of the ease of replacement. You're a bit more likely to snap the 3/8" bolt than the 14mm axle, but it's a lot easier and cheaper to replace the bolt.

Leave the wheel in hot sunlight for awhile and then go at it with 2 flathead screwdrivers. Never fails. Don't worry about damaging the inside of your rim, no one will see it. Just be careful.
