Default Re: Hey there from Sydney

My ride has been dialed in a fair bit since I shot it in the studio. I figured I better get a shot of it before it gets used and abused, anyway, chain is all tight and stretched to ****, tensioner is so solid, no dramas there. I'm working on a sweet little tensioner off the rear engine mount, cause the stock tensioner has to be the ugliest thing on the planet.

As for the seat, yep. cheap eBay one, slightly modified, makes me laugh and it actually does take out some bumps, little ones anyway. It's a hard tail right! Sprocket was from Kings Sales and Service, the ad to your left. I just trusted 'em and sent my visa details, turned up about a week later, gotta love good service across the Pacific. 36t and some sweet top end speed. Just doesn't go uphills without some pedal power...

I dumped a new set of rubber on and its fast now with no big knobbys on it. The Intense Micro knobbys hook up wickedly round corners on pretty much anything but full on dirt. And I got a little scared only running a front brake, so I'm sideways a lot more now with a rear caliper. Flat track inspired...

We got a crew out for a mini race today. Funny stuff. I've never heard engines scream so hard. I'll put some pics up in the pics bit.

Rock on.
