Tech and Restoration / Re: The mystery Kink. Mystery solved...
« Last post by Midschoolfool on September 18, 2021, 12:20 AM »
Yeah I go through them quick tbh. Had a couple of pairs of Giant, then some race gloves that fell apart after three uses (forget the name now) and now I have S&M. My hands sweat something rotten, and with my hands not being what they once were I can't hold on lol.

Plus let's face it, digging gravel out of your palms was never fun.

This has been a shit month for cranks. I sold those SNAFU, Hermes lost them and now they are saying I need to wait 28 days whilst they "investigate". Meantime I have had to pay the bugger back, and knowing my luck they will find them and deliver them and I will be out cranks and the money ffs.

TBH I am amazed I haven't had serious shit at all since I started doing the bikes again. Maybe it's a sign. That said I really do have what I want now bike wise. It's nice to see the Kink all dirty. And the fact that I am quite happy to see it like that  :LolLolLolLol: I don't reckon I have much left in me physically now. So I really want to just enjoy riding whilst I can.

I hope you're a patient man Mick. It's about 5 builds away  :daumenhoch:
3 have been started and the other two are boxed and waiting.
Yes, I'm questioning my sanity too  :idiot2:
I couldn't let the Cannondale pass me by though.

You're right, those cranks do make it pop! Much better than the black ones imo. :daumenhoch:

Funny you mention gloves. I never, ever wore them bitd but since I've taken up racing again, I literally never ride a BMX without wearing a pair, even for just riding around the rice paddies. In fact, I bought two more pairs this year! ;D

What a ride. If I closed my eyes I would swear I was riding my Metal. This is good, very good. Sadly I forgot my Vans, and most importantly gloves. It's burning hot out there and within about a mile my hands were sweating so bad I couldn't hang on lol.

















What I had to put on my feet wasn't helping either.



I need my Vans dammit !

Things I forgot to mention. I bought some legit casino dice from Caesar's Palace in LV/NV.



They cost me 6.99 I got them here. They are also matched pairs with the same serials.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303281685165?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D294126b639614587b8723ca2883f5264%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D303281685165%26itm%3D303281685165%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2506613&_trksid=p2506613.c100290.m3507

Price was very agreeable too. Usually drilled and ready to fit they are 20 quid a pair. Drilled them out myself with a 10mm bradpoint and glued in two plastic caps. Cable is a Fibrax (had it left over) and the strap is a Fit Bike Co I had left over. Same goes for the plastic S&M bar ends.
