regarding grips ive just changed from gusset b@stards to prolite magic mushrooms which are a copy of longnecks , which are in turn a copy from another grip in the 80s

the b@stard file profile of the gussets while very grippy wasnt very soft and my little fingers have started to hurt a bit due to the daily small downhill rigid punishment ive been giving them . the new ones have a mushroom style so have more cushion . ill also be lowering the pressure in the front tyre once my new wheel arrives . i already hear the rim dinging against the ground so i hope the new wider one wont create snakebites

theyre quite wide but theres nothing to stop you cutting a bit out to narrow them



perry have toadstools myself on the KHS, inspired from BMX of yore.

ken there is also a trip to arrocher on the 9th of may just me and Mr Panda on that one :(

I am looking to get oury's for the on-one so might get another set if they make a difference- cheers Lads.

I got into the rigid mindset at CV, there was a boy on a modern spesh chasing me down the runway and apart from not really wanting to much air, I beat him down as I flowed a bit better :roll: - The uphills are great cause you pass full bouncers with ease, you just have to try and pick your line that wee bit more carefully- I would ride rigid everytime if it wasn't so fecking hard on the arms, hands and wrist.

The boy on the spesh asked if my bike was made out of some specialist alloy :lol: :lol: :lol: and commented on it's very firm ride quality when he took a go :lol: :lol: he didn't take a very long shot as you can imagine.

Ok pencil me in for arrochar, need to sort daughters birthday party date to avoid that but I should be ok

Kaiser Drum and Ae are too far for me unless they were one after the other with an overnight camp.

Definately up for an overnighter in late august/september

Cool, Ive seen them. Any ideas? Could maybe limit it to meet pics or I'm not sure if we can group them in other ways ie meets/bikes/gazz(NSFW) etc? :D
