Profanity Filter

    We have recently implemented a profanity filter for emails. If you use language that is of this nature your emails will be automatically blocked. 
    I personally find this type of language is inappropriate via text and has been used excessively by trolling type people, in our day to day lives is common to curse on occasion but is different in verbal communication. Problems will not be solved by cursing at me nor will any practical business.
    If your email or business name contains a curse word it might be blocked. Please send an email from a different company account. For example a company called "SHITE INDUSTRIES" will be blocked (A better name might be a wise decision). I can remove the filter for your company in this case.

Measuring Chain Ring Bolts

     There is some confusion over Chain Ring bolts on bicycles. Below I wrote some information that can also be found here:How To Measure Bolts



There are 2 main types of chain ring bolts.

For road and track applications you want to use "singles". This 

attaches a single chain ring to the crank spider. Closed spacing is 
about 4mm.
For Downhill and MTB you want doubles. This attaches 2 chain 
rings to the spider. Closed spacing is about 6.2 to 6.8mm.
Spacing: The spacing needs to be less than the chain ring stack to 
it will tighten properly.
Inner chain rings use a "Granny Bolt" and no nut is needed. This 
bolt is about 10mm long.
Hex Backed Bolts  These have a short bolt section and cannot be 
used with much over a 8mm gap. The bolt doesn't have as much 
threading.
Slotted back nuts allow a much longer bolt and can handle chain 
ring spacings between 6.2mm to 11mm.
The head of these bolts will engage with the outside chain ring to 
center if the nut is not long enough.
All are 8mm bolts - 0.75 pitch (Extra fine)
Nuts are made to be in a 10mm bore.

New Shipping Policy

Due to late or non delivered items there is a new tiered shipping rate and larger orders will have to have a confirmed tracking method. Sadly some customers have taken advantage of this in the past and has caused the most complaints over the years.
Shipping without tracking is out of my control and no longer works on my end. We will be working on the website to reflect this change. Smaller orders can still be shipped via Air mail since many orders are under 50.00.More expensive orders will ship for free to serve as a bit of a discount.
