I'm going to say AK, Kerley, Bruno and possibly Garrett made them really popular, guys like Crumlish killed it on them for a few years but their riding pretty much got ignored until the big name guys hopped on them

nothing beats a 360 lookback in my opinion, do love a cancan though

Fair enough, Solid still make great frames so I would take one over the snap happy Grim Reaper either way and they still have stock on the site so my guess is they are just selling the ones they have left from before the closure of Solids part days

they still make the BBoy and Deathrow in America, I assumed it was still FBM for those two but I may be wrong

Added reply in a thread eastern grim reaper or cult bboy v2 12/15/2014 6:18 AM

Obviously the Cult, FBM made and generally a great frame, it's just as strong as a Federal Bruno (I'm not sure what some of you guys are on sometimes) Eastern on the other hand is crap, every eastern part I've ever rode snapped and the Grim Reapers are ... more »

No he's right. Buying a tyre because it squeaks is one of the worst reasons I've heard off. More to the point who actually cares if it does or doesn't

The video shows no evidence whatsoever. You can argue all you like but the fact is it doesn't. It makes a claim that they are yet to prove (as there is a lack of evidence) someone's word is not substantial evidence at all. And to prove it scientifically ... more »

Again no one is calling out odyssey, what is being said is the video holds no proof. The test was produced by a company trying to sell their product and therefore would not stand up as evidence (that's without the fact they didn't show them entire test) ... more »

You have to commit to getting your front foot on, get your foot on and the rest will come. All about commitment

It'll be fine, a 13.25 rear end on a 21.5 toptube would feel terrible

Added reply in a thread Odyssey Makes the Best Forks. Stampy V2. 12/10/2014 1:22 AM

They can legally bullshit it very easily, unless someone has their own stamps they can't disprove it. Also whilst they probably are the strongest this test really wouldn't stand up in any other industry. To truest claim them to be the strongest they ... more »

Depends on the size of the frame, on a frame at 21.25- 21.5 that's pretty normal as It is in proportion with the length of the front triangle. On a 20.5 frame it would feel pretty long

Added reply in a thread Odyssey Makes the Best Forks. Stampy V2. 12/9/2014 2:29 PM

or you could just admit it's a good idea to prove their claims beyond all doubt so no one can argue about whether or not they are the strongest anymore.

Added reply in a thread Odyssey Makes the Best Forks. Stampy V2. 12/9/2014 2:24 PM

I'm not saying it isn't, im just saying out up a sped up version so people can see for their own eyes. I'm not quite sure why your arguing with this.

Added reply in a thread Odyssey Makes the Best Forks. Stampy V2. 12/9/2014 2:18 PM

could easily make a full video, Stick it on x100 (or maybe more) and split the screen into 6. It would just be nice to see it for my own eyes rather than having to take someone's word for it (especially with the number of claims of broken ones). Always ... more »

Added reply in a thread Odyssey Makes the Best Forks. Stampy V2. 12/9/2014 1:55 PM

Fair enough ill give you that. Still need them to actually test them against all of the major forks rather than a hand selected few and put out a full video of the test start to finish but as I said before once they put that out I will happily recommend ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tall people help!! 12/9/2014 2:09 AM

Shit sorry it would be 21.1- 20.9 and 21.5- 21.3. My bad the first conversions were the Trail or Park ones

Added reply in a thread Tall people help!! 12/9/2014 2:07 AM

It will come in at 20.9 (well as close as makes no difference) I'm sure it would be fine as long as you don't like really long feeling frames but I'd recommend you try a frame around the 20.8 - 21 mark before buying

Added reply in a thread Tall people help!! 12/9/2014 1:56 AM

I can tell you now that there conversions are wrong, a 74.5 to a 75 will add 0.1 from the toptube. The old conversions for the TrailOrPark (all the same bar HA) were 20.7 = 20.4, 21.1 = 20.8. Obviously you need to add 0.1 to these to get the passenger ... more »

You have to remember that bmx parts have fuck all resale value, to sell anything you have to take of pretty much 40%. May not be what you want but that's reality
