Garmin Forerunner 205/305 quick release kit

Sorry to revive a dead-ish thread, but ...

I just picked up a 305 and even with the so-called extended wristband
on it--the one that comes with the unit--there's no way it'll fit over
my wrist...

Does MUni impact the trail more than MTB?

The trails in Chico's Upper Bidwell Park, where I do most of my riding,
close for at least three days after significant rainfall. I always
adhere to the trail signs, and have been known to get ****y...

10-15 hours of practice gets you where, now ?

My 11 year old son is probably at around the 5-7 hour mark of practice;
it's hard to judge as he goes in intervals of 10-30 minutes. He's been
working at this since late October, I'd guess. He's the...

"Where no MUni has gone before...."

The choice of Gollum as the "Klingon *******" was inspired. My two
youngest, who watched it with me, would have spewed milk out their
noses, had they been drinking milk while we watched it. We're all...

Those who use Garmin gps units can check out Motion Based, too, which

info. I don't know about this from a user's perspective...

I've had what I suspect was a broken thumb and a confirmed broken wrist
from muni. Haven't had any serious problems since wearing very sturdy
wrist guards, though; I tend to try, now, to land on the...

Whats the brake pad to rim gap?

Yeah, I think John's right. I always adjust (whether on bike or uni)
until it doesn't rub when the wheel spins. It takes a while to get it
right, but it's the only way. Trial and error, you...

137's on KH24 for Freeride/Technical downhill

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but ....

I swapped out my KH24's 165s for a nice new set of 140s (it's the 05-06
hub) earlier this week, and took my first muni ride on it today. I've

Self-Extracting Crank Bolt question

So it turns out that the left-handed threads were the only stumbling
block; I was able to remove the bolts with my circlip pliers easily once
I turned them the right direction.

So my KH24 now has...

Self-Extracting Crank Bolt question

D'oh! I'll check on the backwards threads thing; I hadn't tried turning
the other way. Maybe that'll take care of the issue.

I'll also check at the LBS for the tool. You can never have too...

old pair has self-extracting bolts on them, and I thought I'd just swap

Cross-lacing, Revolutionary idea or just a gimmick?

I have a set of old Spinergy Spox wheels that used a similar system to
what Fraggle mentions by SYM, where the adjustments were made for truing
at the hub end, rather than the rim end of things. It's...

Stolen KH36

I have a google alert (daily) for unicycle postings on all craigslist
sites (I started it when Tom Holub's guni disappeared from a flight),
