I rode this stem probably for about 2 years as it was cheap and a top loader...because lower bars makes you go higher...but yeah in the process of having it my bars never slipped, and mine came in a pretty sweet purplish color(the kind with the residue of a BIC pen), the only thing i found bad with it was that the allen bolts it came with rusted rather easily.
I got this sprockey because the neon green color it came in matched my wheelset. I've had it about 5 months now and run it with a sprocket gaurd and do plenty of pedal/sprocket slides and stalls on subs and theres still no sign of wear on the teeth running 25-9 gear ratio. The only downfall for me with this part is that they didn't have any 26t imperials in green! But if you're looking for one of the coolest looking sprockets thats been around forever and comes in almost every colour and lots of sizes I'd suggest pickin up one of these bad boys. They are relatively cheap too at $34.99-$49.99 at most shops and mailorders1
I always used to run the T1 medium bars with 12 degrees sweep or i'd try and find the lightest not too wide but alotta sweep pair of bars and I'd go through about 4 pairs of bars a year from bending them. The Last set of odyssey civillian bars I had I bent throwing my bike down off a ledge I slipped a pedal on, so it came time to get new bars. I go into my local shop to see what they've got and they showed me the new (at the time about 1.5 years ago) macniel 14 bars and I couldnt believe how light they were, it was the first pair of butted bars I've owned and needless to say probably the last. I've rode just about Read More »
I bought this sprocket because its color caught my eye. I looked into it, it looked like it would be good for my bike, so i got it. It did come with an adapter but I have a 22mm Primo spindle so I didn't use it. I put it on my spindle, and there's a little bit of play in it so I took stars off for that. Otherwise, there's only one crank bolt hole but lots of drilling so it stays light. There's lots of pretty colors too...
If you destroy wheels spokes and hubs you should get one of these. Still going strong it goes through alot of ware and tear just keep rotating it but its the best one Ive come across yet but I havent tried the mutiny hub buddy yet. This is a great choice though
a fork is a fork right? right. but these forks only have one problem, the top bolt. it strips out way to easy. i mean really easy. they don't bend to easy and they hold the wheel on straight. good pair of forks, i suggest if you are going to buy them that you call dk before hand and ask them for the type of compression bolt that comes on there stock bikes because it works 100 times better.
Random wrench cost around 32 dollars and is an good investment. i've have mine since they came out and it keeps me going when i need it to. the top cap on mine is hard to thread in right sometimes. also it's very hard, next to impossible to use on brakes and seats becuase it does not fit into tight places well. my only real complaint is that it didn't come with a 17mm socket. it's a pretty popular size and i just have to carry one extra. good tool over all.
