    No odour. I can’t say about staining fabric, but will see.

    Chain lube for kite lines

    I sold my mountain bike a few weeks ago and I was going through the bits and pieces I still had for it (deciding what to sell or throw out), when I came across some chain dry lube. A wax based, solvent free lube. That is designed to not attract dust or wash off with water. Hmmm, What could I possibly use this for? it was obvious really. So today I grabbed a length of old kite line, wiped some on and let dry for half an hour. this is the result. The chain lube was applied to the left half obviously. The coated line has a nice slippery feel, that didn’t want to rub off. I also ran my finger nails up and down it to try and get the little frayed bits to stand up, but they mostly stayed stuck down. A bottle of this chain lube sells for about $15 and 120ml should be enough to do at least 10 sets of lines. So now it’s just a matter of time and motivation to coat some full sets of lines.

    Lightweight Buggy rims

    @windstruck I think your right about the plastic rims being the lightest option. i think the benefit of allow rims is that they seat the tyre a bit better and are more balanced? @.Joel @Chook Am I on the right track with that idea? I’m not sure why guys with big go fast buggies are worried about saving a few grams on wheels, when the buggies themselves weigh 50kg+ @.Joel side note: I just used the updated emojis menu for the first time. Is there any way that we can put ek’s original “general” emojis at the top, so that we don’t have to scroll through all the crappy phone emojis first. The EK ones are a lot more interesting and unique to the forum.

    Kite buggy, kites to new home

    It looks like a peter Lynn race buggy with a braced giga strong rear axle. the axle is probably on backwards as the bracing usually runs along the top to stop it bending from downward force. The package is a bargain though. The buggy alone would be worth $450
