^would have thought some of those super thin dh ones (various brands seem to do them, not that I can name a single one) would be amongst the lightest.

those primo (or other) drive side guards. they any use or do they just bend in? snapped my chain on a feebs today for the first time in what seems like forever, but might get a guard just to be extra safe in the future.
also ive got a 10t ratchet, will it fit? dans says it fits 9t or less, empire says 10t. im inclined to trust empire more than dans but still want to check.

i ran one of the primo metal guards over my 9t coaster, but even then had to put an extra spacer under the guard so it would clear my collapse chain. i think youd be very lucky if it would clear a 10 ratchet.
as for the quality of the guard, theyre ok. not great but should be good enough on opposites. my mate had a rhd wheel for a bit and ran the guard on that, his regular grind side, and its now a bit bent and distorted after like 3-4 months.
it was great when i ran it on my coaster, opposite feebles never felt so smooth

think i'll give it a miss then. should probably just learn to grind without hitting my chain instead

Anyone know for sure the spoke length for a Chris King to a Ribcage 3x? I'm guessing 184 and 186?

I've heard similar to this. Theres also the plastic version. It's not the kind of thing I would put on my bike. I reckon it would suck for wheel clamping, but be a lot better for your chain. I can't imagine plastic would really rip apart your chain links (and the chain won't be moving during a grind when the guard is pushed into it), whereas if metal bends into the chain it would just fuck shit up.

The biggest problem with drive side guards is that they aren't rotatable I guess.

Glands are the best all round, except for the driver...

Do they still make Ratchets in 48h or will I have to go used?

And not bike related bit what would happen if Ponochio said 'my nose will grow'. ?

I'm getting chrome forks in the mail and I want them black... Can I just lightly sand the surface and paint over them? Will that be enough for the paint to adhere?

Thnxz

36h 3x small flange = 186mm 69% of the time, slightly higher flange 184mm the other 69% of the time.

Lightest pedals, that aren't plastic?

Do magnesium bodies fall to bits?


No idea about what are the lightest but mag pedals get fucked pretty quick if you like grinding on them. I had the Primo ones, not tenderizers, the one's where the axle didn't go to the end of the body.
