    Hello,

    I am looking for a conversion kit for my White Industries ENO eccentric hub (130mm spacing), in order to convert it to standard ENO hub.

    I believe the kit include an axle and both ends. I found it online only (or maybe I search the wrong way) at Gran Prix Bicycles in Australia, but they do not ship overseas and I am based in France.

    Would anyone have this? send a pm if so!

    I believe this is something already discussed but I can't manage to find results (might not arrange the words as I should), for those riding both fixed and single speed, do you use the exact same gearing between both? Or is there a recommendation to go up/down when switching from one to the other?

    I have been intrigued by Murph for quite some time but never tried it. I think there is no partition in the original challenge (i.e. 100 pull ups, once completed jump to 200 pushups, etc.).
    Watched out of curiosity Crossfit Games 2 years ago I guess (can't remember exactly) ; format was a little different as split into 20 pullups / 40 pushups / 60 squats to complete 5 times. Bridges the former navy seal did all of the 5 sets of 20 pullups unbroken I was like wtf

    yeah it is a bit much and I had a hard time completing it. However the variant that I used to do with 4 exercises was bit better/less unenjoyable to do and you can mix with all the exercises you want/need

    Tried a challenge yesterday if anyone is up to it, from former American football player Ray Lewis.
    One exercise only (push-up, squats, sit-ups, etc.), and to count the rep, you take a deck of cards, you pick one card it gives you the reps, you do the reps, than you pick another card, etc. until the whole deck is completed.
    Rep counts is as per the following:
    2 -> 10 the number of the card gives the number of reps
    J, Q, K -> 10 reps
    A -> 25 reps
    Joker -> 50 reps.
    Did it for pushups without the two jokers yesterday, really hard (for me at least).

    If one exercise only isn't much fun (what I can understand), I used to make a variant of the deck of cards. Same principle, but the exercise depend on the suit of the cards and the rep count is a little different:
    spades = squats
    clubs = pushups
    heart = burpees
    diamonds = sit-ups
    2 -> 10 the number of the card gives the number of reps
    J -> 12 reps
    Q -> 15 reps
    K -> 20 reps
    A -> 25 reps
    It allow to be always different and with 4 exercises, you can mix it with whatever you want, and it only requires a deck of cards (which is fairly common)
