The 80s ruined splatter for me, haha, but your execution on this looks pretty great. Well done!

I'd run 'em. I absolutely guarantee (and I'm willing to bet you feel the same) that they'll be light years better than your very old Haro 8-spline cranks. And if you're getting a better deal than what they're retailing for now, if you end up not liking ... more »

Added reply in a thread Some stupid detaingler question. Whatever 1/19/2017 9:45 AM

Though I'm not running a detangler now, every detangler I had in the past was that very one. Rather, every detangler I had in the past was an OE Odyssey part that looks identical to that one. I'm assuming it's the same. Anyway, I had zero problems with ... more »

Well, if you're mashing down on the pedal and not moving off as fast/strong as you should, you probably have bigger issues than your chain! But if you're wheel spins fine and your driver catches and seems in order, I'm sayin' it's just all in your head!

If it's serviceable, I'd start by cleaning and greasing the driver internals. If it's a freewheel... get a new freewheel. You could also tighten up the cranks (the large nut between the crank arm and bearings/bottom bracket) a bit. That would probably ... more »

Sounds like ghost pedaling. If it's not so much that you can't feel the force of it when you're on the pedals, I'd let it go.

Or this! I'm guessing he has a freewheel, though.

Added reply in a thread Replacing sprocket help! 1/14/2017 2:13 PM

Two limitations there. 1) Pedal bosses are threaded for a specific orientation to prevent their unscrewing. If you simply switch the sides your cranks arms are on, you nullify that. 2) and arguably more important is the driver/freewheel. Your system ... more »

Yep! What you're looking for is a "bolt drive" or similarly named sprocket type. The other style is "spline drive". The difference should be obvious when you look at the two side by side. The bolt drive sprocket will have one or many holes to accommodate ... more »

Added reply in a thread Replacing sprocket help! 1/14/2017 1:30 PM

Unless I'm misunderstanding the question, yes, it does matter that the sprocket attaches there, and yes, you will need to install the new sprocket in the same way. That attachment point is what allows the rider to transfer power through the sprocket ... more »

This is great general advice. OP, If it's not just general out-of-practice soreness like Steve mentioned, see a doctor. If he/she prescribes some physical therapy, do it! Some people think PTs are quacks, fine, but if you find a good one, he/she can ... more »
