this brake lever is really nice to feel, nice smooth design and it looks good. its really smooth to pull also, but this probably depends on how your brake is set up. i think it is only made for the right hand side so i just turned mine over and ran it on the left and it still looks good!
You gotta love the hombres. I use these brakes and the set on my ride are starting to see some inside bushing wear. I have to say it might be time for dia tech to incorporate a seal bearing in these bad boys. I'm still giving the brakes a 5 star rating for their dependability and reasonable price tag.
The odyssey hazard hub I call it old reliable. I got turned on by this hub because its affordable and easy to replace drivers,bearings and the axle. I particulary like the looks and overall reliability of this product, the only gripe I have is that I wish Jim B would answer my e-mails about kickin in some products for the next bmxinvasion contest. Holla at me JIM!
DK distortion pedals a quick fix to dropping weight off of your ride. I picked a pair up with the ti spindle and put them to the test. Numerous slams at the ohio comp seemed to be a good start . I been riding these pedals for about a month they have good grip and stlye I like the ti look ya know?. I found out from the folks at DK these pedals come with 90 day warranty, so far so good. Thumbs up on DK!
Tech 77 brake lever probably one of the most preffered brake levers in bmx fo sho. I been rockin the tech 77 since I started riding. Its a lever that has never let me down. Tech 77 responsive action and good looks makes it my favorite choice.
I love the weight of these things and the magnesium body is stronger than a lot of other ones and I'm ok (not overwhelmed) with the traction and feel but the bearing/bushing systems sucks. Mine developed side to side play after a few sessions. I also couldn't easily get replacement pins when I went looking.
These are just too $$$ for what you get.
I have used all the Gyro's available and this is definatly my favorite. It rotates smooth and if it ever gets rough a few drops of silicone lube take care of it (I've only had to do this once in two years.) I love the little intentations for the cable ends. I like the looks of it and the value can't be beat. Before buying the Snafu I exploaded two expensive Odyssey GTX-Rs. The only thing missing is built in knarps which allow you to easily modify cable lenghts for the best routing.
There not the best cranks on the marhek but i love the warranty. I have to replace my arms cause they are bent but they arnt that bad compared to what i had before. But for the same amount of money , or cheaper, you could get much better cranks.
Problems ive had:
-Bent arms (im a rough rider)
-Bolts coming loose (super glue/locktight will fix that)
-Spindle bending (not covered by the warranty)
-Splines on spinle/inside of arm stripping(i have to superglue that to keep it from moving)
These are my only problems after a couple years on them
Hope this review helps!
