Has anyone else noticed this. Primo is getting back into making strong parts again that are pretty dam cheap and good at the same time, They released their solid sprocket (Looks great in my eyes), new cromo pro cranks and the pro forks to name a few.
The forks are my favorite in my eyes and defiantly going to be part of my next build with a bonedeth creepozoid frame.
The thing i love about them the most is how beefy they tried to make it. 6mm dropouts are crazy good for forks and there aren't any cut outs in them either. They have a 26 mm offset so its in-between being mellow and touchy and a nice long head tube.
But it isn't just primo going back to street destroyer basics and making parts that are mainly for strength.
G-Sport brought out their new hubs, that aren't aiming to be light, just strong, but this isn't any news to us thanks to Mr French's ethics that he has kept along the way. Bonedeth are going back to 48's for strength and don't seem to be releasing a 36H option even though the public avoidance of 48's since the early 2000's and eclat are bringing out beefier cranks.
What do you think has caused this sudden change in the industry to go back to strength over weight again?
The first breath is the beginning of death
