I expected more for almost $400

Rating:

The Good: geo,weight,good looking

The Bad: the extra work I had to put into it to make everything work right.

Overall:

To start off with I bought the 2014 model. I must say I love how this frame looks and rides.

Putting the bottom bracket in was a breeze. Then the brake hardware was easy too. Then I built the bike up, and had no problems until I put the integrated chain tensioners in. They were kind off painted shut. No big deal really for me I have tap and die sets, but for the average person I think this might be a problem.

Last thing I always do is put the brake on. I used an odyssey evo II. I happen to love this brake used one for years never had problems with them. The removable brake mounts were too short. Only a 1/32" or more , but still too short to make my brakes work. Good thing I'm older have allot of tools, and know how. Things the average person buying this frame doesn't have.  I ended up grinding down the brass bushings on the brakes to make it work, but for the kind of money I dropped on this frame that kind of stuff should be made correct.

I guess for most of you the brake problems won't be an issue.Because allot of you might not ride brakes. Because I do I can't give this frame 5 stars.

In Mat Hoffmans book he talks about not doing drugs. How he just has fun being weird. That's how my riding friends and I still are 20 + years riding together. In Eddie Romans' BMX video Ride On, he talks about why he doesn't drink or do drugs. I'm not ... more »

I just read the article in ride UK about your thoughts on religion. I have to say that i think it takes major gut s to talk about your believes in the BMX industry. It's funny that the article came out when it did, because about a week before I got it my wife, and I were talking about my recent lack faith. She told me that it bothered her. I told her I wish I felt differently, but I just can't lie to myself about it. So it was good to hear that someone that studies the bible more than I ever have questions their faith from time to time. Hopefully soon I will truly believe, and be back on track. I just wanted to thank you for agreeing to answer the questions in that article. It made me feel better.

Another thing you could try is brakes have 2 different thickness"washers". Lets just call them washers, because I'm not sure what the name is for them. The concave washers are the 2 thicknesses that the cone washers bump up to that allow you to adjust ... more »

This . In the late 80's I lost 2 balls for my rear hub. I ran it for years after that. I just took it apart cleaned the hub and bearings and regreased it about every 6 months. I still have that hub today on my 1986 redline.

Odyssey is actually being innovative. That chain is awesome. Those brakes should come stock on every kids first bike. They should learn how to fix their own shit at some point though.

I was at a party, and I guy drank a pint glass full of period piss for 10 bucks. As soon as he put the glass down he ran for the bathroom, but didn't make it. He threw it all up in the middle of the kitchen.
