If previous years are any sign the rest will be for second place. Im really interested to see how walsh and price prologue in the dust behind regular.

I'd like to see Toby have to start day 1 a few positions back to make it more interesting

Finished off some bike prep until I hit a wall with the frobt mousse. Using a M15 and Michey AC10 combo which is compatible on the website.

Seems I have got a dodgy michelin that is to big for the tyre.

Couldnt get it on without popping the bottom side off the rim, took it to the local bike shop who does 100-150 mousses a year and he had the same issues even while using a tyre machine. Good that it confirmed it wasnt me and that the tyre/ tube combo but now have to wait to hear back to see what michelin say.

Tyre

Sorry for another which tyre guys but does any one recommend a proven performer for 19" rears? I was going for the Michelin desert race, however is 18" only. The rep has recommended a starcross 5 med/hard.

Might do a starcross 5 medium front and AC10 rear.

I had a AT81RC 110/90-19 on my RM. Big tall tyre. Seen quite a few around.
I just had to grind the bolts out of my old rear sprocket. Some knuckle head had loctited the bolts into the hub holes. 110% siezed.

Did you try heat? Loctite melts from heat and loses its effect

The whole situation was a mess. Threads on the backside were screwed too. Never had to grind before, but worked fine. Glad i wasnt keeping the sprocket.
14/48 gearing. Pulls 5th gear from 45kph up to 130kph.

I think with the amount of time the top riders have on the track you could almost blindfold them and it wouldn't slow them that much.
