    ‘Next Gen’ Dana gearbox?

    Just saw this video on pinion gearboxes. Seems awesome (albeit expensive and frame specific, i.e. non-bolt on) When I saw it, the first thing that popped into my mind was....that’s how a Dana 3 speed works! Check it out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Are 112 links enough?

    Buying new chain for my BOTEN build, should a 112 link cover a 46/16 drivetrain on a 'standard' 26" cruiser? I'd hate to have to buy two chains to get 4-10 links....... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
