    Talc and Blisters

    just a thought,,, i used to work in a photo lab and we used cotton gloves for negative handling at the time i used to wear em under leather gloves for road ridding these things cost pennys so maybe worth a look

    injured list?

    haha i didnt realise we where posting old injuries too,,,, last year i broke my tail bone [ damn them whoops] and also bust my right knee up at the same time... but gimme a broken bone as opposed to a trapped under bike, header pipe burn anytime i hope no one thinking of taking up dirt biking reads this forum,,, we will put em off for life how many of us worry about the risks? i personally worry about em a lot,,,,,,till i hear the thunderous noise from my exhuast... then its just red mist all the way ------------------ "when the dust storm comes they say the devil rides in"

    FrontBrake Cable Routing Question

    i found that running the cable between the clips then drilling a small hole in each plastic clip and routing a single strand of safty wire looks fine
