    ive only seen 1 pike that didnt have leaky seals. also theyre not rated for dj so its probably best to just use the argyle.

    Starting to consider a different frame because the one i wanted is going to take far too long to get here. Has anyone here ran 26" wheel in a 24" suburban? I know they can fit, and i've been looking at the geometry and it's very similar to the park majesty. Thoughts?

    i know that a few people on another site have ordered from them, theyre legit. pretty big store in poland as it has NS stuff super cheap for them.

    also going to try take turndowns from the bmx to mtb, now that i have clearance for my leg. another advantage of having a huge bar. try them flyout first and see how that goes.

    Mate of mine has turndowns pretty dialed on mtb, but he doesn't really do them that much because it just looks weird...
    I have photos somewhere, will see if i can find them.

    yeah i know theyve been done, carter holland has them dialled, but ive only ever done them on my little bike. only thing i can see that will get in the way is my tyre hitting my shin before its clicked, but it should be ok.

    did a little mod to my hub today. just need to find an 11t profile driver and its done. and due to the positioning of the pawls i actually have slightly more POE than the standard hope cassette.
