You can definitely tell the crank arms are shorter when you pedal around. But as far as actually riding I didn't notice much of a difference.
Generally, lined up with forks, since I'm on directors I have to line up with the headtube. No big deal, same difference.
Looks awesome, I don't miss bikes like this though haha
It's a trip, I'd prefer a slacker headtube angle, it's not bad with the higher offset forks though. I had steeper forks on it for a short bit and I didn't like the feel of it at all.
Chances are you're going to have a hard time finding one, they stopped making them years ago. Comfy seat though, I had one for a while.

Since no one has pointed this out yet... You're not going to be able to ride with that size sprocket and that size freewheel. You're going to go nowhere fast. It would be funny to watch though. Seriously, you need to either run a 9t or 10t rear with ... more »
If you buy a new LHD hub and lace it up to the rear everything should be ok. The shadow killer cranks are rhd/lhd compatible and neither the bottom bracket or sprocket are effected by the change. The axle bolts are female and should be chromoly. You ... more »
Like everyone else has already stated, neither is a bad buy if you're looking to drop that kind of cash right out of the gate. I had a Novus, it was a badass complete. However, if you're already looking at going LHD just go with the Dugan. No sense in ... more »
Premium was a spin off of Haro when they first came out. Are they not working together anymore?
Sunday, I literally said the same thing about the hawk and sexton bullshit a couple posts above yours. As far as the parts go I could take them or leave them. To be honest, in the 20 years that I've been on and off a bike I've ridden very few odyssey ... more »
Haha Miron was the man
Yes, 30 years, half of which was putting out junk product that nobody was buying. Look, I get it, shit happens. I don't care that the guys were let go from that team. I just don't agree with the way they handled it. Neither guy got defensive, they just ... more »
Odyssey wasn't willing to accept that these guys had other responsibilities and engagements with life (god forbid) and other sponsors. These guys had a hand in helping make Odyssey what it is and how popular it is, for them to call them out online for ... more »
Thanks. The reason I will no longer ride Odyssey parts is simple. I enjoy supporting brands that support BMX on all levels. With Hawk and Sexton off the team and the public explanation all parties gave for the reason, it's simple to see that Odyssey ... more »
Everyone goes through tires at different rates. I have the T/A's, I dug them. I literally just took them off because I wanted a little more clearance in the rear end. They can get a little slippery on smooth surfaces and can be a little unpredictable ... more »
Good luck with that, try to sell it to a rich kid that doesn't know any better. Or take time to part it out. That's probably the best way to do it.
