    Cool █▬█ acks

    I've been hacking things up since I was kid and was wondering where the hacks thread was (link?). I just wanted to share some dodgey things I've been up to these holidays before I go back to work.

    Share if you have any?

    Bike hacks, tools, funny weird stupid shit that would never get certified.

    This PYR is a good start.

    Nice lol..

    I bought this for $45 and refreshed it to match my new rear (which started another funny hack).

    I didn't like the skewer adapters on my rear Deemax 135mm so I hacked a 12->10mm axle with the angle grinder.

    Works a treat.

    After I refreshed the cheap front Deemax I made my own rear Deemax Ultimate from a spare MTX33.

    See the thread for all the pics but here's the start and finish.

    Cool stuff.. You should try and turn your selfie helmet stick into one of those rotating swivel things?
