There are so many different nationalities in the UK, many Europeans, especially in London. Will they be kicked out, get some kind of residency or will they not change the free mobility?

are you talking about the picture on the right side? that is a sideshot in fact and the flipped the stem (confused me at first-sight) - the stem seems to be pretty slim

Ooooooh, now I see it. Sorry everyone.

I had the elementary since I thought it was a cool design. It chrushed my bars though and, as you said, that you had to realign your bars after taking your fork off was annoying (I travelled with my bike almost every weekend then).

God damn it JFax, get it right bud.


But then what is the thing on the bottom side of the stem? It looks like a bolt to me! Looks like one on the side and one on the bottom. Maybe they just hadnt decided where to put the bolt.

I would get the older fly cnc brakes if they can be found. I ride Eclat rear and I find them really good, so can recommend those.

There are so many bike commuters in copenhagen that it is hard to easily ride along. I actually get stuck in trafic in the bike lane.

That thing is light! Not sure how heavy MTB stems tend to be but compared to a BMX stem its light.

Based on the renderings it looks like a two bolt system, one from the side and one from the side. Could be two different versions but Im am interested to see how it is supposed to work.

Seeing how it is two G-sport products I would be amazed if it didnt.

He was an idol to me growing up riding. Played his games and loved his Fox vid parts and contest runs.

He seemed bit too competitive as some said. Not sure what he actually did as a job in the later parts of his life.

I realised yesterday that Ive completely lost interest in watching others ride. I used to love contest vids and road fools. Feels like its only edits now, which doesnt interest me.

I assure you, my intent was not to insult you.

I only get on BG when I have a few min to spare at work and had a quick glance at what you wrote and it seemed logical. If you now say that the set fires are unsafe then it doesnt make sense.

I however do not want to post anything in your threads ever again since you seem to twist what what everyone writes and insult anyone commenting on it. Might very well be that people have twisted what you say but you are still doing it yourself.

Wood stoves cause aerosoles while burning natural gas doesnt. Banning open fires and pushing for gas heating makes sense in your area.

Artificial controlled forest fires in an area prone for forest fires makes sense if it can prevent wide spread uncontrollable forest fires.

Based on your posts it seems like you overreact.

I ran a WTP Utopia fork with removable tabs (like the Deco) and I would recommend getting welded lugs. Mine came off a couple of times and it was super annoying and difficult to fix.

I had fairly bad braking power on my black birdcage with clear eclat pads. They were just too hard. I used a dremel with a stone knife sharpner head and took off a mm or so of the top layer. Result was uneven and softer surface, made it better but not perfect.

Swapped to black 2x4 and now they work well
