Feels like parts manufacturing ain't what it used to be Bit of a shame when money cuts through everything... On the TMF someone posted that the quality of rubber is so poor these days that sometimes it perishes before you finished building, unless they are Delphi branded.. not sure what that's worth but it kinda feels like the chinese copiers are flooding the market... Or skills are getting lost...

I remember buying timkens bearings way back when I was 16 for the front hub (that makes me feel old hehe )... If it poses a risk to safety I'll sure be going for quality parts over knock-offs...

Yeah I saw those, got me curious remembering how much Keith Calver raved about their self adjusting Gas-A-Adjust in mini mag. I wonder how these compare ..
