If you are building a DJ home you should seriously just run profile bmx cranks.

Maybe if he's made of money. Those things don't come cheap.

And, for the £$ the finish quality is questionable, plenty of porfile products I had to chase threads and/or clean swarf out

But once installed they will survive whatever onslought you put them through. Any 48 spline chromolly crank will Outlast your standard zee/atlas setup.

Too bad Deity doesn't make their cranks anymore. I've got a set and they're pretty slick.

Can anyone confirm that the RS Monarch auto-sag uses a standard diameter wiper seal kit?

I have a 2013 demo 8, I’m fully stripping the bike to do a full service including new pivot bearings. When trying to remove the “fsr” bolt nearest to the seat post, riders right hand side, it just spins and doesn’t undo or come out, the left hand side unthreaded fine but this one keeps spinning. Is there a special way to remove it? Or are the threads trashed inside? Any help would be much appreciated. Thankyou

I believe this is a through axle and only needs to be removed from one side. If not you'll need to REI stall the left hand thread to give you support.

If I wanted to quieten down a rear hub would it be a bad idea to put a little bit of Park Tool HPG-1 grease in there? Would that make the hub super draggy or wear prematurely or anything along those lines?

Most companies don't recommend grease unless it's their specific blend. What hub is it?

Its a Hunt RapidEngage which came on their Enduro Wide wheel set, not sure if its a rebranded off the shelf deal though

Don't put that grease in literally anything but threads.

Really? Whys that? The picture on the park tool website literally shows them repacking a bearing with it!

Yeah, it can have grain in it and really isn't suitable for any application outside of threads in my humble opinion.

Fair enough, out of interest what do you use for bearings?
