my 2 cents on the spline topic: i've had exactly 3 sets of 19mm 48 spline cranks. in my experience, you gotta babysit those fucking spindle bolts, otherwise they come loose and you develop that wobble. i eventually started using locktite but that was ... more »
i'm ~6'4" and run a 21.5 TT with a 13.125 CS. it's a BTM. but i was just chiming in to say that i run a weirdly proportioned from and i love the short backend. i wouldn't want shorter but i don't think it would be a big deal if it was a link or two shorter ... more »

my marmoset-birdcage and sputnic headset have been on my bike for about 5 1/2 years. the wheel has definitely seen better days but it functions perfect
kis had a frame with an 11" bottom bracket. I actually ordered it and then cancelled when i realized how crazy low the bb was
i agree with all of this. also i was disappointed there was only 1 gralla clip
so many good pedal grinds. so good.

i have them and am a huge fan. i've been stockpiling pedal bodies lol. i haven't been able to find them for a while and animal deleted my insta comment asking about them so i am assuming they aren't coming back. great pedal nonetheless. slide great, ... more »
1. both are 100% 1 1/8". also likely they both have an integrated seat clamp. should be visible in the pictures. 2. there probably isn't much of a difference. likely a slight difference in "shine." level of shine of a clear finish will vary from one ... more »
2 short recently came out. SOS has been out for a while. the 2 Short frame is Cult's answer to the demand for all these extra twitchy frames like the ALVX

i've got a couch
stay away from 19mm spline drive. tends to develop a wobble after a while. 22mm and 24mm are the way to go. strong and don't develop the wobble as easily. i especially recommend fit indent 24mm bossless cranks. 2nd set in and never had any wobble, strong, ... more »
he's got a point. if you buy thunderbolts, those could be the last cranks you have to buy. i cracked my last set of indent 24's from excessive grind damage and they offered to replace the cranks at a discount ($90). I wanted to go down to 165mm so i ... more »
i'm on my second set of these cranks. i've never had a problem with them. i can't say much else about them since they are doing what cranks are supposed to do. they come in 2.5-piece which can only be used with 24mm spline drive sprockets. they also ... more »
I like to do sliders to halfcabs. they came to me quickly when I got a coaster. I rarely see anyone do it but I think they look good. I like dem real long sliders too.
