they'll probably have some wet wipes for your fanny too while one of their lads knocks it out with a hammer and some scrap metal

Dip the guard in a saturated solution of caustic soda (sodium hydroxide), aluminium guard will be eaten away leaving steel axle completely unharmed and ready to rock.

marmosets have steel axles now?!

an alu guard should be able to come off by force, big socket on the end of the axle (hubguard side) and fucking HIT IT

chains still noisey as fuck, I've had to use the bmx a lot recently so plenty time to break it in. Oiled it up a few more times. then today one of the threaded pins sheared off in the plate. fuck this

feels like a really strong chain but not being able to fix it now on the spot when I need it is a load of shite

straight chainline, loads of oil

lube made it a bit more quiet but it's near enough the same, can't see how it's gonna get better unless the chain stretches. will it even stretch being so thick? I don't wanna run my chain tight to find out and risk wearing my Q-lite driver out.

anyone sorted their noisey notchy horrible feeling chain?

my bsd halflink was like this, I ground down the inside tips of the chain plates so they didn't touch the driver, problem solved. can't figure out what the problem is with the keychain though as it's loads slimmer and doesn't rub.

to the eye it looks like the chain has a different pitch than the sprocket? I thought about comparing tooth profile but it looks like people with odyssey sprockets are having a problem as well

machinist on paper, feels like I served my time dressing welds and polishing stainless though. every bit of fabrication except the welding

he's already spelled it out for you, bmx is less than 5% of his business

in other words he doesn't give a shit, that 5% doesn't even equate to answering messages/updating on progress. someone who actually gave a shit would've chipped away at bmx jobs in his spare time, then let everyone know he won't be taking any more work on

sounds like the collar has been squashed a touch, if you filed/sanded the end of the axle down slightly it should stop the wobble, at worst a bearing might've got fucked
