@Metro-Gnome that makes sense, thanks for detailed explanation, I will be careful not to apply too much. Beer

Also...left side pedals are reverse threaded, and right side bottom bracket cups. Start the pedal and BB cup threads off by hand before you use a tool, so if they're in crooked you'll feel it right away.

THIS

good way to make sure you get it in straight is to turn it the wrong way till you feel the thread "click" into the right spot and then start threading it it.

Am i right in saying these are Talas? Coil right?

They are talas fork I'm sure, you can tell they are not air sprung because the blue cap is an adjuster, not a dummy cover for a Schrader valve
if its a talas, it means its an air fork. Have a look at the left leg, theres an air cap in thr centre of the adjuster. This fork is definitely air sprung

My bad, I don't mean to steer you wrong shoefanu. I would not get a talas for a dirtjump bike myself

Hey guys. Been off the bike a fair while now and decided to get back on. Just need to update a few parts first.

Main issue being tyres... anyone recommend some decent street/park folding tyres?

Seems to be a serious lack of choice out there. Not after khes and they seem to have stopped doing the dth in the uk?

Tioga powerblocks seem to be good or intense microknobbies if you can find them.

on the subject of tires, I seem to have f-ed off my specialized rhythm lite control rear tire, landed a little too sideways on a gap that wasn't even that gnar... must have torn some of the threads inside the casing or something as it's so far off I can feel the bike moving under me with every rotation... rim is most definitely not bent either and the bead looks good... Just been riding street for the most part over the few months I've had them

Bead deformation isn't that abnormal. Might want to try ghetto tubeless if you want to salvage them. Sometimes it helps. If theres a bulge and you have an old spare/junk tire laying around I've 'patched' blown out sidewalls by gorilla gluing a piece of sidewall to the inside of the bulge.

Bmx cranks or mtb cranks for my trek ticket dj? Although don't know much about bmx cranks I reckon they wouldn't fit the 73mm bb needs to be 68mm?

Dartmoor Thorn cranks have 2 different spindle lenght just for that issue. But id recommend MTB cranks on a Ticket though....

Might have trouble finding BB bearings for a PF92 for a 3-piece crank.

That and adapters f*cking suck, go some nice MTB cranks it’ll be way less of a headache to set up.
