F@@@@G flippers ruining this hobby
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Haro-Freestyler-Master-BMX-frame-and-fork-reissue-1-200-Bob-Haro-signed-box-BNIB/174500126748?hash=item28a104a01c:g:Mr0AAOSwEVdfnT3L

The buyers are ruining the hobby, along with the continual stream of 'the world's gone mad? posts on FB with screenshots of eBay listings.

Personally, I have cashed in on the situation. I advertised my Hutch on here and FB for ?1600, I even said on here that I?d accept offers, I?d have let it go for ?1500 to a trusted, known RAD member, I didn't get one nibble. So, I decided to split and list on eBay to maximize my potential return. I'm glad I did, even after fees, I've cleared over ?800 just on cranks, pedals and power disc.

I wasn't sure how much to list for, but used advice off other members and other similar items, to gauge my start price.

The FB moaners and screenshot warriors are hiking up prices themselves, and aren't even noticing themselves doing it.

I've been using the Quamen as my regular rice-field rider for a few months now but have decided to swap out the Renthal chainring for a Profile Elite. Mainly because I want the Renthal for my UB2 but I actually think that the nickel-finish Profile looks great on Project Q! :daumenhoch:

I kinda want you to do a reverse of the old cardboard on the frame hitting the spokes trick from back in the day..... but this time with the card  taped to the spokes and it smacking the frame to see if the sound resonates through the body and sounds like your on a motorbike

^^^ "nono" ^^^

Last Sunday I finally got round to swapping the chainrings and chains between the Quamen and GT. However, as always, things didn't quite go according to plan. Removing the Renthal chainring and KMC chain from the Quamen wasn't a problem, since I'd fitted them in the first place. The first hurdle I encountered was getting the bloody pedal off the UB2. Whoever had worked on the bike before had tightened the allen bolt up so much that I began to question whether I was trying to turn it the wrong way. After copious amounts of swearing and WD-40, it finally undid, leaving me with a bruised hand for my efforts. The Renthal chainring went on and looks great. I then went to fit the KMC chain and found it was too short, which I had feared would be the case since I no longer have the spare links for that chain. Even moving the wheel all the way back in the drops wouldn't have been enough, not that I want to alter the wheelbase as I like how it currently rides. So, that has forced me to doing what I really should have done to begin with (but was being tight-fisted), namely to buy a new chain for the UB2. That led me to my next problem - what chain to get? There are plenty of 3/32" options online but less of a choice from Japanese sellers. However, a bit of searching led me to a KMC Z610 HX, which I was able to snag for a not unreasonable 9 quid shipped to my door. That should arrive next week, so more updates and pictures then. :daumenhoch:

So Plan C won the day and I stayed at home, though the planned spanner-work didn't go quite as I'd hoped! More about that elsewhere because in far more exciting news, I've just read a post on the Niigata BMX website which says that for this weekend's final race of the season, they've relaxed the restrictions on who can enter! That means I can bloody well race!!! :daumenhoch: I shouldn't get too excited because this is subject to track conditions which, at the moment, they say are not great, so there's a chance the race may not happen!! All will depend on the weather over the next 24 hours which does look ok - there's a small chance of some rain - but we'll have to wait and see! In the meantime I'm stoked to at least be in with a chance of racing again. Time to dust down and clean up the Crupi! :D

What is the answer. I have never done it my self but seen it done in paddling pools so I would say plastic is safe

I was advised to use Citric acid as no problems have been experienced with any form of screen printing using it  fistblump
