re: Manic Mechanic isn't closing shop
yeah, the smoothness is somethin' else. with the old rag joint, i was constantly checking to see if it was still on there. i'd be watching my chain jump around while trying to ride, and no matter how straight i'd get the stupid thing, a few days later it would be just slightly off again.
with the adapter, i don't even think about it anymore. it's on there, and it works. and it looks freakin' cool, too...
