Got my BPD chain guide guard installed. Took about 10 minutes, I didn't even bother to take off the rear wheel like they recommend in the instructions.

My wife and I worked in the ME for about 12 years, most of it in Saudi Arabia. Also worked in Muscat with NBO as part of a clean-up team. Small world it is!

I just do cruiser boards-no tricks or anything. Been doing it for a year with no issues. Was land paddling to work using a "paddle" with a rubber bumper on the end to push with. Got a little to complacent/careless and got the rubber bumper into the wheels and took a tumble wherein I sprained the crap out of my ankle. Walked around on it for 4-5 days and finally went to a sports medicne clinic. Broken fibula. Not giving up skateboard because in truth I have rolled and sprained my ankle much more often just running! Cast off in <2 weeks!

PS.. I hope you get your bike back and they castrate the thief!!!!!

any store that just about sells anything that has to do with electrics.

From mind you just need the 5,3mm flat male plug. boot not needed as its on the loom side, just slide it over.
