My bike's not Fire Eye, but I do love their components:
FireEye PJ pedals
FireEye Excelerant LT rims
FireEye Excelerant R5 rear hub
FireEye Excelerant F20 front hub

They're tough as hell, and look pretty sick, too. This is their second life, as I've used them on a previous build.

As it stands now...

Pics were taken with my cheap and cheerful phone, that's why they are such low quality Smile

Anyone had experience with Fire Eye R150 hubs?

would the shortfuse 360 be an upgrade from an azonic steelhead? i know the chainstays would be significantly shorter but i also heard someone say is has a low BB and im running an identiti rebate park, which is 425mm axle to crown. id be running 24" wheels, of course. think itd be worth it? what do you think about the fire eye hubs? i want to run pegs with this setup so im looking at the rs14fw rear hub. will the axle be long enough even for a peg?

would the shortfuse 360 be barspinable with a identiti rebate park(or a 55/60mm sus) ? thanks

Apologies for the bump on such an old thread ...

I'm looking to build up a Fireeye Shortfuse 360 frame that I recently bought as NOS. I went for it as it's reminiscent of the BMX's I had between 86 - 92, trying to recapture my youth in my mid life crisis!

If anyone that has had one knows a proven combination of

32 tooth or more chain ring
bottom bracket set
crank arms
36 spoke single speed freewheel rear hub

please let me know so as I can ape your set up. Having not dealt with a BMX type bottom bracket since the very early nineties, anything BMX BB wise other than a 1 piece crank is totally alien to me!

So far I've tried a mid eighties style traditional 1 piece crank, that I've had kicking about forever and a day, and the biggest chain ring I can get on it without fowling the frame is a 25 tooth jobby. I also bought a 'Truvativ USA to Euro BB Convertor', that let's you use a standard British BSA type BB in an American shell, but there is no point me buying a spindle for it as without a rear hub I don't know what chainline I want.

So if anyone knows of a parts combination that works, please let me know as I want to ride my new bicycle!
