Yeah check my Cult pics

Nice. Fairly easy process?

Yeah. Make sure you degrease your frame really well, keep fingerprints off it etc.

If you want a streak free process put the solution in a spray bottle. I hadn't done it before and sponged it on so ended up with streaks.

It's also not going to go that deep blue black colour as there isn't enough carbon in 4130.
It looks great though in the flesh.

Got it...thanks for the tips! I'll post pics if I decide to do it, I definitely want the streaked look! Thanks again

So my brand new stolen talon cranks have developed vertical play after a few months any fix to this like adding a bit of grease or in case the warranty doesn't come through should I just say f*ck it and jb weld it?

They are 48 spline right? I've ended up putting loctite in my 48 spline cranks after play developed.
Blue loctite?

Yea, I put it on the splines and the bolts. Not really an ideal situation but it worked for me.

Loctite makes a bearing gap-filler that would make more sense. It would be a super permananent solution though, so beware.

The other side is just fine I will try to get some spacers and a thinner dustcap to get more spline into the crank if that doesn't help and the warranty still doesn't come thru I will just try with bkue loctite first

Nope, can definitely be removed. Use the stuff pretty often on higher end road and mtb bottom bracket shells. If you smacked the arm at an angle it'd probably break it free.

CRC want me to send them the crankset fpr further inspection and then they will decide if they replace it or not, like, brother I live in Spain and you are asking me to dismantle my bmx at the beginning of the season?

I'll start with loctite

Getting it replaced tho would solve your problems?

I mean ya keep f*cking with it and dealing with it being garbage.


Or buy quality cranks.
