Thanks for the trimmed dropout feedback.

Does anyone know where I can get the 17mm socket head bolts (as opposed to the 14mm/ 9/16'ths) ones for my marmoset in da uk?

What are the pros and cons of trimming dropouts on a frame?

Bit tired of looking at the same old shit.

What websites are you guise looking at?

Anything with lots of interesting articles you can dip into during a slow working day?

Looks good Kevin, also looks like I could fit my head through the box on those bars.

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

How I miss the rep thingy.

Are champion still going?

We use gildan for our hoodies and don't get any complaints, they're a nice fit.

Fruit of the loom isn't bad if you get that over the pond.

American apparel are a tighter fit.

just made a little haul of parts i'm happy with and i've got half an hour to spare so i i'll get my geek on:

a mate on my fleet at work just bought a bmx and before he did he was asking me so i said i'd ask about a bit and i had a fair few parts i could put his way for cheep. so he went off and bought a built up loosefer off ebay for 120 quid and amazingly got it couriered for a tenner.

so following that 'had' off here, who i've previously got a barcode frame from, offered me a 2010 20.8 t1 ruben for 20 quid.

no brainer really, new bike for me innit bruv.

so here's what i had:

powerbites with ti spindle
duo pedals, left one stuck in
oddy vermont 30t
oddy cable
macneil post
t1 8.25 bars
redneck xlt
new duo grips, fbm ends
aitkin 2.25

for 30 quid off paulie, i just got today:

fit shivs
front wheel from fit complete
snm tuffman 33t
mds 30t

spanish fly bb on way from alans, had to pay top dollar for this : (

plan on:

using the fly headset from the other bike and replacing it with an oddy one
1.9 aitkin for the rear and hoffman seat for 15 each off winstanleys
running the 33t to 9t driver but will use a 30t if it feels shite
sharing the back wheel from my other bike until this gets one
oddy brake set up

swap the post with my other bike

new wheels in time, aiming for nice hubs and reasonable rims

maybe no pegs

leaning towards powder coating frame and forks black and taking off the rattle can black on the bars to get the original cream. everything else will be black. ninja bike

and plan to get it done by summer, it should be a nice contrast to my hamdog

if anyone has any shit to sell me for it, am listening!

current bits (frame is mint but pic is bad. glued in chain stay brake mounts):

hamdog (has three pegs, bit too short for the fourth and is 25/9 gearing):

I've been tempted so many times to do an oddy rip off thread as it happens so often but always realise I have better things to do, like fapping to Donald trumps campaign speeches for example.

So I'll just say éclat.

are pinned rims still no good even if they're triple or quadruple pinned?

building up a new bike, yay

which of these would you have if they both were the same price and both used an oddy cable:

fly spring hanger with the fly manual lever or oddy evo2 and oddy lever


sun envy (or any other suns) or proper microlite rims? or are there any other good but not massively expensive ones?
