you can convert your 135x10 to 142x12, it's what I had to do when switching from Banshee Amp to my Shonky

I've come by a set of the original Oddessy Wombolts, FK knows how old,over 10 years? FK knows how many owners and/or cack handed mechs thye've been through. Gave em a good clean an re'grease and They're FINE! totally bombproof! wedges are in top condition which I know the early wombolts had some problems with but, I'm more inclined to think it was derpy mechs that had a problem with them.

I know from my shop days that Oddessy's warranties are fantastic!! name me one other company that gives life time warranties on BMX STREET parts?

I really wish Hazard lite rims came in 26!!
Alot of the times,it is the hacks who do not follow the instructions on how to install the cranks,reason why they fail and give them a bad name.It is usually the arrogant know it all bike mechanics that screw up the installs.

I too can only dream about Odyssey making their bombproof rims in 26" 32 designs.If it were to hapen,they will pretty much corner the 26" rim market.

I had the first gen wombolts when they landed in Canada, IIRC I actually had the first set that ever sold in country. They were a decent crank.

They still offered literally nothing over the competition while being bespoke.

how do you compare the jackal to other frames You have owned previous

Jumping back onto the topic of Cranks for a mo, I was thinking of grabbing some Premium 1948 Cranks, brand new, and local for cheap.

They have a large flat surface for the sprocket to sit against, (although I plan to go spline drive again anyways) and I've had some premium parts before and they seem fine. anyone have any call-outs against them, or any other 1up suggestions? (19mm/SD/blek)

Also can someone point me in the direction of some NS districts in black PLEASE! Smile

To be fair, a lot of MTB parts are the same way though.

What makes a SRAM direct mount chainring better than raceface cinch or 4x104? You can't swap parts between 95% of MTB cranksets and yet we live with it.

If it's a reliable product with decent parts availability, I don't really see why it matters too much.

I had the previous gen. (Same geo, but without a tapered headtube)

I really regret selling it. My current P3 is decent, but the frame feels kinda harsh. (I'm only 175lb though)

Good cranks...I had a set on my 20". I think you can still purchase the combo with a 25t or 28t spline drive sprocket included for a great price!

That's why BMX is better though, they don't put up with this kind of bullshit. Standards get rejected all the time.
