The new Odyssey one made for the Keychain is really nice, and it's only like $16. Works awesome with my 510 and has plenty of space left for larger chains, plus has an adjustable plate stop for whatever links you put in it.

That Vette is rad. Coming from someone who usually hates that generation. I remember seeing photos of it a while back, incredible amount of work going into that car.

The Turbo Pinto should be hitting the road today for the first time since I ripped it apart almost 2 years ago

The bunnyhop method always works on my Twombolts. I use grease instead of antiseize despite knowing antiseize is better just because grease comes off my hands/clothes better. Coming from working on cars, I fucking hate getting a surprise glob of antiseize on myself. Morons use it on lug nuts when you should never do that....

Why should you never do that? I have always used it on wheel bolts you know so you have a fighting chance of getting them undone when you need to by the side of the road in the pissing rain...

Wet torque is much higher than dry torque for one. If you can calculate to account for that then it isn't as bad of an idea, but from what I remember it's a LOT higher if the torque wrench is set to the same rating.

That and there's a slightly higher chance of them coming loose. I always clean the threads on my own vehicles and used closed lugnuts, plus they come off at least a couple times a year. I do usually put some grease on the center bore though, Toyota wheels love to get stuck on there.

Surely seized torque is way higher than dry torque though surely...? So I'd rather go from "wet" to "a bit dry but still possible to get undone" (maybe a 30% increase?) than from "dry" to "well that's me fucked" (which is an increase of maybe 500%)?!?!

In terms of torque required to remove it, yes. I'm talking about clamping load on the wheel and studs. From what I've read and been told, a lot more force is exerted when torquing if the studs are lubricated. This is in regards to crushing the seat on the wheel and over-clamping the studs. I do not know the exact numbers but it does put the load on the stud above the recommended range.

A little grease wouldn't be as bad in that regard as slathering a ton of anti-seize on like some people do. Since if it rusts up, less clamping force will be produced by the same amount of rotational torque - so slight lubrication is better than none in my opinion.

I've had no problem up here with harsh winters and road salt even with open ended lugs - IF the wheels are removed a few times a year like they should be. Brakes should be inspected at least once a year and with most peoples' driving, tires should be rotated at least a couple times. But when they're left on for 2-3 years (or less) with nothing touched, the rust gets excessive. Same with the assholes that ram the lug back onto the rusty threads with an impact gun...

My Pinto is now turbo...

Hoping to have it on the road for a month before winter. Been almost 2 years since it's been drivable.

Tall bars, there is NOTHING out there for 25x7.75 anymore because of stupid 12 year olds buying bars that are way too big for them cuz they're cool

Halflink chains

1pc seat/post combos

Overly large tires and the fact that 2.1s are impossible to find when both of my frames pretty much require that size

36h EVERYTHING. I like 48h in the rear because it needs way less maintenance and I can't feel a weight difference

Drivers smaller than 10t

Compression bolts that do not accept a 6mm allen

Anything that takes odd size allen bolts - I'm looking at you Profile

As far as I can remember KHE drivers were always available in either 9t or 11t. And the Poverty and Odyssey Reloader were 10t. Poverty 10t would work if you had a shim to take up the space for the 2nd bearing (1 6902 vs 2 6802s) it didn't have but good luck finding one. I sheared the threads in mine and that's why my Poverty wheel is sitting in my mom's storage unit being useless.

I really like how it has a solid border on the top and the seats, never see that

Sell and Swap / Wanted: 2.10 high pressure tires
« on: July 28, 2015, 10:53:36 PM »
I need some cheap mixed street/trails use 2.10 tires since I can't fit larger on either of my frames. 80psi minimum, would really like tan/whitewalls. No slick style tires. Path/Aitken/Ross, FAF, Kink Vela, GLH, etc.

I have the paypals

This will be the hub that converts me to 36h and 9t instead of 48h 10t. I'm a little bummed there's no 10t option but I doubt it'd sell well.

I was all set with my bike and now Odyssey & G-Sport are convincing me I need to buy new parts. Next year when I'm not building a car...

CNC cut this out of 1" Sintra with brushed aluminum laminate at work. Had the frame left over as a screw up (has a few scratches client noticed) from the previous person who had my job and I had to remake it, so I had the inside material left over. It'd probably cost me $200-300 in material for this and we'd charge a client out the ass. It's 39x39"





CNC laser cut this, about 2ft tall. Doing a small batch for sale if anyone's interested.

I need to make more shit in the future to cover my apartment with.

This summer I'd be interested in trading shit I make for shit other people make out of materials I don't work with. Need more cool things on the walls.

Whoops I read that post wrong. That bar looks pretty sweet. Why so much angle on the edge though?
