Pretty good summary really. We've been living with the conservatives, it's not been easy on the NHS and welfare like allah says,  but otherwise they've done a pretty good job in terms of cutting the deficit and supporting business.

Babylon gesturing in the bottom righthand corner?

Guess he was there to stop it? I doubt the police fully endorse stuff like this.,..

That makes no sense whatsoever,  can't wait for the video. Is ride still going to continue as an online thing?

McDonald's, subway, pizzahut, etc, provided it comes along on a slow news day you're pretty much guaranteed some tv time and free food.

Failing that, Brutus, deathshead, rage, the merciless, apocalypse, etc are all nice.

It's a faith actually,  essentially a glory back end with a heavier, slightly tighter, main frame. Ugly as fuck, but like you say the suspension is phenomenonal, even by top end modern standards.

I got some fancy new boxxers and other bits and bobs to tart up my crusty dh bike... Also painted it up not beige...

Start a new one, but without the tits or other sinful content that was presumably in there polluting the internets.

Interesting stuff with the printer sheep, any videos of it in action?

That printer is amazing,  never seen a delta one before and took a fair old while to figure out what was going on,  it can't be as accurate as a regular one with 3 linear sliding axes is it?

Can't really find any videos or much else about them

Take ivy hysteria went over my head, what was the appeal?

The time frames gusset was really nice, bmx needs more (harmless) attention to detail like this.

It turned blue and black after I saw this...

It's gone back to white and gold now mind.

it would also create an immense point of leverage on the axle/bearing race. imagine this slip-on collar rigid guard as the horizontal blue bar in this:

the red arrow is the impact applied to the guard when you smack your bike onto a rail for a grind, whereas the triangle pivot is the contact area that this collar sits on the axle, against the inner bearing race. the resultant force applied to the bike (since its also where the collar rests against the inner race of the bearing) is the green arrow, which is effectively on the same spot as the triangle pivot in this case. the impact from the grind is, therefore, largely amplified  thru leverage. this means you're creating a mechanism that's prone to deformation from a rock hit rock approach and long leverage, and the consequence of when that happens is a possible combination of fucked bearing/bearing race/hub wobble/axle damage.

Keeping everything in context, dont forget there is a 4.5in long lever attached to the very end of the axle + a fat internet nerd jumping up and down, smashing the end of it repeatedly into a concrete block. In the grand scheme of things the load from a small  hub guard cantilevered off an inboard area of the axle, is going to be a fart in a jacuzzi when compared to the loads from the peg.

They're mostly good because they protect your spokes and they're a lot lower profile than the axle mounted ones.

About time, the new front/rear design looks tonnes better and the wider hole spacing should be more solid too. Be interested to see what the back side is like, now hubs are more standardized in terms of flange size and spoke count, id imagine there'll be something other than the old pleasure knobbles, to help secure it?...
