I tend to go back to my Native home of Martha's VIneyard around this time and I'll be there until Mid-January. So if I anyone is planning a trip down there this summer, feel free to hit me up and we'll ride a bit.I also have a few dirt bikes and four wheelers and sailboats and we can do that as well.

 

Being born and raised there, I know all the spots to ride and there's no issues with getting into trouble.Last summer Craig joined me on a ride at the Oak Bluffs Police Station and then I got hurt and his chain snapped..some bad luck..lol

 

 

HIt me up and we'll ride a bit..

  • Wondering if anyone has researched and or successfully converted some sort of non trials mtb 26" frame to a streety trials bike. Something with a long-ish top tube, 0drop bb or so, short stays, low front end like 60-80mm fork and rear disc.
  • I purchased a heatsink tensioner for my Hex, replacing the Trialtech two wheeled tensioner I have been using for years. I now have more chain than I would like hanging down. I am a half link away from being able to shorten any further and would like to use a half link. This is where it gets confusing, I have never done this before and have read on every chain description on Tartybikes that the split link that comes with every chain sold is not recommended for trials use. There are no alternatives given. I have read that people just push a link pin out enough to remove the required links and push the partially removed pin back in. This makes me uncomfortable. If I was to use a half link I would have to do this twice or, I would have to use two split links which is not recommended for trials use by Tartybikes to put the chain together. Both options sound sketchy to me. Can someone with experiential knowledge and experience please explain how I can use a half link without compromising the chains integrity so I won't worry about my chain snapping on every drop?! Split link image provided for those who may not know what it is.
  • I have the clean t13 v2 brake lever with echo calipers. I can't get the pistons to retract consistently. I've bled them several times, lubed and exercised the pistons but still can't get them to work right. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks for the help!
