Reply to Stubsy:
Hey Stubsy, I will start off by saying that it was not my intention to offend anyone so if I did I apologise. I don’t know who MTL is, what he does, how many post he’s made - whatever - it’s not relevant.
In this instance and in the context of this thread I stand by my original comments that his suggestions were unsuitable and potentially dangerous.
But, what I REALLY don’t understand is where you fit into the equation Stubsy. I’m sure MTL is big enough to look after himself and doesn’t need you to hold his hand for him. So I don’t know what relationship you have with MTL (or what relatonship you’d maybe like to have) but really it’s none of your business.
Read this thread - I made a post - MTL made a suggestion - I replied - he answered - end of story.
Then you come along and start putting your beak in. You express your opinion that I should keep my opinions to myself - don’t you think that’s a bit hypercritical - if you tell other people not to express their opinions what right do you have to express yours - why not give us all an example to follow and keep out of it.
And before you start typing away - READ what you are replying to. I’d already FIXED the problem when you told me to go and fix it myself, and I stated that in my second post - read it (and btw it wasn’t a bodge job it was a problem with the Bitubo).
Finally for anyone thinking of buying a SEMI-hydraulic grimeca try this set up first: fit some slotted/high performance brake shoes, a stiffer outer brake cable (you can get suitable high quality ones from push bike shops these days - recommended to me by someone who uses them on the race track) and preferably an upgraded shock - the overall effect is as good as the SEMI-hydraulic grimeca (note - not the same as a fully hydraulic setup) and a helluva lot cheaper.
And Stubsy you’re quite right - I don’t submit a lot of posts here - but that doesn’t mean I don’t know what I’m talking about now does it dear. The fact is that I have a life, and I actually spend a lot of time riding my scoot, not sitting at a desk jerkin off to a bulletin board!
Good luck to you and MTL
