Agreed, they are designed to deform under the pressure of a tightened nut:-s

Ok I'll add you to the list of volunteers! Well I have used SD to initiate plenty of meetups, so I would be happy to submit write ups for them in the future, and perhaps some stuff based around my limited freeride/downhill experience. I'm sure you (McC) could provide an amusing article about SD's m...

The front page is a tricky one, I'm guessing most regular users like myself go nowhere near it. It probably doesn't help that it is not updated that regularly. Maybe a feed of the new posts on the FrontPage would be good, and you could take a leaf out of Remolitions book and have random features, so...

Like Belac says, if your brake cable is long enough route it up your leg and body and down the arm, you will then have full movement, without restriction. A carabiner on the trouser waist band and one by your armpit on body armour or a backpack makes it quick and easy to do , rather than having to t...

Woodland niteriding is awesome! - the tunnel of light is great as you can easily tell if your on the track or not - and t...

I'd say 85% of what we rode last year could have easily been ridden without a brake. Most of the main tracks are at least 12' wide, so you can do some proper carving to keep speed down, and I cant think of many tracks that did'nt flatten out to a stop or have a good area to powerslide at the end.......

nobody ever mentions primo trispokes in plastic-hub-discussion. Why is that? for the record i have a set and riding them for about two years no problem. I have primo light weights, and I had no probs with twistars in the past, I think its to do with tyre pressure, I don't skate park ride, so 30-40 ...

Yes mark, it's a place of beauty when it's empty. Started getting round the deep end on my 8.5 pool deck for the first time properly sunday morning, had an hour of just two of us in the park. You want me to give you a shout when we next have an older gentlemans early-morning skateboarding session? ...
