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?

Not every company wants to be like Premium.

I think companies just started realizing that there's not as many weight weinies as they thought at one time and they got their shit together!

Demolition has really stepped it up lately. I remember 5-6 years ago countless people were snapping their cranks like they were twigs and exploding the cassette hubs like busting a nut after not beatin it for awhile. Lolol but seriously they've stepped it up a lot.

as for the sudden change, probably the same thing with trends. They come & go, and in x amount of years I'm sure we'll be back to lighter parts again. Things like that seem to go in a cycle.

Primo have been shit since they dumped their og's of the team and stopped making powerbites.

They are just a shitty catalogue brand these days

You seem to be the only one besides the crew who thinks primo sucks, everyones constantly breaking their parts, just today my friends primo hoop had spokes pull through, and Ii stripped my powerbites axle like a month ago, axle was a year newer than the cranks too(it was "hollow axle" while the original was solid) the cranks lasted many years though

They need to bring back the super tenderizers in an upgraded form. Same pedal body, just stronger axle and bearings.

Because too many kids are breaking the lighter stuff, and companies are realizing (so are the riders) that uber-light stuff is great, BUT we are at a teetering point between strength and weight. Not much more can be shed without sacrificing strength.

Kids was strong stuff.

Plus adding a little weight can be cheaper to produce the parts.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

This is exactly why Primo's latest sprocket is cheaper. They skipped on the unnecessary cut outs in it, kept it stronger, and cheaper.

Ive always liked primo. Had a n4fl for a good while and 2 remixes and never had a problem with either. Their WLT tires are superb but the whole slick tire thing just didn't suit me well so I replaced them. Considering getting some Simmons grips if I hear good about them.

The ONLY thing that honestly SUCKED from Primo was the Wall Tire. Just crap if you had taller sidewall rims. The beads crapped out sooo fast.

My weightwhore days ended today when i went to take my bike out for a ride today and found that the inner wall of my alienation deviant rim is caving in around the spoke holes and theres cracks running in every direction off of them! one of the cracks even ripped the ultralite tube i was running! Overall, all the weight > strength ratio parts have really cost me cause i have to rebuild almost my whole setup each year. Definetly good to see companies are switching back to making parts that last!
