someone who knows how to code things should make a world map of spots- users can take a photo on phone or whatever with location settings/gps coordinates embedded. upload them and everyone has a handy map of every city with pictures of spots for when they visit.

Couldn't this be used by cities to find out what spots to put stoppers on, block off, etc?

You could eliminate the spacer for the sprocket bolt entirely if you got a a grub screw or a bolt long enough to bottom out inside the crank arm before it hit the sprocket

Charles over at B6 made me a Ti one of these for my Twombolts. I love it.

would Primo warranty my powerbite arm for pedal wobble even if I warrantied them once before and I don't have a reciept haha. Or should I just JB weld the pedal boss?

Probably not, they wouldn't warranty mine or sell me replacement pedal bosses. The crank arms are fine but I can't get bosses for them, and I'd pay money to fix them. But after the responses I got, I will never buy anything Primo again.

I built up this gong target for my guns

Targets should be rusty and aren't you worried about ricochet? Or is it being placed far enough away where it shouldn't be a problem?

What no. The madera hub uses 17mm ID hub shell bearings, and 15mm ID driver bearings.

Right, it'd been a while since I've had a rear one apart. I was thinking about the front hub when I made that post.

Replace the pawls every now and then. They're like $2 with a new c-clip. Mine's skipping cause the pawls are too worn down.

This could be a really stupid question but if I cut the flange off let's say ruben grips could I use them with lock collars on a mtb?

If you mean use them like Odi Lock-Ons then no. The real question is why would you want to use such slippery grips?

Yeah, they're borderline in the front with the Race axle and pegs. I wouldn't even consider it in the rear.

You could have a Profile chromoly axle cut, drilled, and tapped for bolts. But with the price of the axle, it could even cost less to have one made out of 4130 stock.

I'm sure he could. It's 17mm at the ends and 14mm in the center. 14mm thick aluminum is just not enough for pegs. The early Fly axles tapered to 15mm in the middle from 17 and they broke a lot. You've got 2 good options there. Chromoly axle the size of the stock one with 17mm outer and 14 or 15mm inner, or 17mm aluminum all the way through. I'd suggest 3/8x24 either way. With 17mm 7075 all the way through you'd have the axle strength of the Vandero 2.

You know Fat Claws are 3/16" and won't fit a 1/8" chain, right?

Shhhh, we want to let him run into that problem on his own and see what idiotic solution he tries to come up with.
