Reply to Chain makes loud clicking noises, Need help 3/28/2021 5:07 PM

I switched from a full link chain (odyssey bluebird) that was running perfectly fine to a shadow interlock v2 some time ago. Horrible noise even though everything was set up perfectly just like in your case. I tried a ybn half link (new) too and had ... more ยป

Reply to Worn out driver, brand new chain and sprocket - buy new driver? 3/15/2021 1:40 AM

Hi, got a new chain (shadow interlock v2) on a worn demolition rotator driver. It was unridable due to ugly noises that were not just those due to a new chain. Thought it was because of the driver and sprocket being worn out. Changed the driver and everything's ... more ยป

I use adidas nizza and plastic pedals and my feet never slip. I also like the rubber on the toes for some protection.

If you're a beginner at manuals you want to make the machine higher on the sides (2 pieces of wood on top of each other instead of just 1). Your bike will be more stable laterally and it helps a lot at first. Let us know how it works for you!

Here's a video, cheapest and easiest way to make one. Video is in french but you'll understand how it works anyway. https://youtu.be/-mt1Zp2gGvc

One thing that's very underrated to learn new tricks in my opinion is watching videos of the said trick in slowmo. Helps you see the little things that make a difference...

Thanks man, the galaxy and sabre are quite easy to find. As for the DGR spocket I'd never heard of it, but just like the galaxy I don't like how it looks (which, i'll admit, is totally secondary ๐Ÿ˜Š). Thanks for your help anyway!

Thanks for trying anyway! I've been all over the web for a 22/28 spline drive sprocket and I couldn't find any but the profile galaxy, which is not really my favorite (price/looks). I'll keep looking! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Reply to Spline drive good or bad 11/13/2020 3:19 AM

I was on the profile no boss for some time and never had a problem with it. I've now been on a column for 2 years, they're stiff, feel solid , and I never had a problem with it. Only thing that bothers me is that I'm on a deluxe 27t sprocket, and I want ... more ยป

Reply to When i tighten my back wheel, it gets very hard to pedal, and my driver gets very tight. 10/17/2020 9:06 AM

I'd take my wheel out, use an allen wrench to keep the axle from moving and check if driver and oppo side bolts are tight. Something may be rotating as you tighten your wheel.
