And boom! Right back to trying to use a quill as an example of why you should grease a taper


I knew that wouldn't take long


but they are both interference fits though aren't they?

you just assemble them in a different way to get a similar effect - you turn your handle bars, you turn your cranks....just with different amounts of forces applied...

I've stopped using bolts in order to save weight so now I slather on a liberal coating of Marmite* and bash them on with a convenient rock.

Then just repeat once a mile, hey presto, simple solution. Incidentally, does not having a bolt mean that they're an interference fit?










*This does nothing, I just like the smell

if you like the smell but dont have any marmite, just pull a massive skid on some dry stretch of road, quickly run round to the back of your bike and ram your nose firmly against the hot bald patch on your tyre.

Grease is the word
It's got groove, it's got meaning
Grease is the time, is the place, is the motion
Grease is the way we are feeling




That is all...

Listen you guys, if you're gonna bump, you gotta sing the words.

Everybody sings, everybody dances - else I'm out with the boomstick and picturing people in crosshairs. Capiche?
