i work in the plumbing industry and as of the last couple years, they've gotten serious as fuck about stuff being lead free. thats because this stuff touches the water we drink. as far as grips go... i think what people have said is valid - don't ingest ... more »

Added reply in a thread Grips containing lead 1/20/2016 1:18 PM

i think its fair to be concerned, and so does California. i don't know anything about the actual risk of using those grips but i'd rather run a pair that doesn't contain lead, if there are any. my 2 cents.

Added reply in a thread Actual chain stay length. 1/19/2016 1:38 PM

i know what you mean. when i changed frames i kept the same chain length even though the chainstay was longer by .125". its more something to consider if you like your current length but are getting a frame with a shorter or longer chainstay...or the ... more »

@Nwewinit thanks dude. i never would have thought about the difference in materials changing the torque/power transfer. very interesting. i think i'm gonna go with the BBS just cus there is some extra material there. unless some other chromo options ... more »

thanks for the info. how do you like the kink sprocket? I didn't realize until now that it came in 24mm spline drive. I'm still leaning towards the BBS cus it looks a little beefier but I do like the Astro's look better.

I don't know much about my hub since I haven't had to work on it. not to be captain obvious here but I would check out the videos George French posted about (one post above you) and try to take the hub apart and put it back together. at that point if ... more »

I'm also a big fan of spline drive. the only other style I would try would be socket drive but they don't make the socket drive thunderbolts in LHD.

Added reply in a thread 4130 vs 7075 Sprockets 1/14/2016 9:24 AM

this. I like the idea of one sprocket lasting me the rest of my life. I think it would be cool as fuck to have a chromo version of the tree og or a chromo/SD version of the odyssey chase hawk sprocket (c-512?)

Added reply in a thread 4130 vs 7075 Sprockets 1/13/2016 2:54 PM

if i wanted just any ole thick sprocket, i'd keep the one i have. and yes, i'm aware of the properties of the two metals. i'm looking for more insight than i can provide on my own. speculation is nice and all but...

Added reply in a thread 4130 vs 7075 Sprockets 1/13/2016 2:05 PM

instinctively i would think that a steel sprocket would last longer and withstand more abuse than an aluminum sprocket but it doesn't seem to be a popular idea in bmx, yet. i'm guessing its because of planned obsolescence but maybe there are some engineering ... more »

Started new thread 4130 vs 7075 Sprockets 1/13/2016 12:47 PM

So there have been a few steel sprockets in the last few years with most others being aluminum. I am looking for my next sprocket and have landed on the mutiny pentra (socket/sd version) or the federal bbs (24mm sd). I remember the tree v1 4130 sprockets
