Well i guess if thats the case!

I have put maybe 3500miles or so on my current setup, is that any good? About right?

Surly ring could be an option, want some thing fancy really though.

I ran a blackspire ring for years and sold it on here recently for a £10. Barely any wear and it had done 1000's of miles. Very durable.

Just curious - what's the difference between a "power wheelie" and any other wheelie?

Power wheelie is to get some speed down haha! Cranking hard to accelerate - not a controlled wheelie. Like snapping out of a start gate.

Does the red/black kmc z510h come in 3/32?

Can i use a 1/8th chain on a 3/32 ring?

z510 is 1/8" only I believe and I run a 1/8" on a 3/32" ring with no issues so yes you can. when the ring wears out replace it with a 1/8" ring simples.

The ring is worn out but looks like a 3/32 is easier to source than 1/8?
