I am a firm believer in the quality of odysseys parts. 100%. When I got this lever, it was mostly on a whim. but if I were to go back to brakes, this would be the only lever i would ever use. Well designed, with the bolts fitting each hole universally, and with an extra set of bolts. A lever thats the perfect size. thats it. Well made Well ridden.
I bought this seatpost brand new in canada for about 59.99msrp. Out of the box it looked great, almost too high tech compared to the other posts out there, yet remained lighter. i'll give the post a 9/10 because the bolt stripped underneath the guts, and the guts bent making that same bolt drive into the bottom of my seat.
vice grips feel really rough when you first get them. they wear in so good though. they wear in and feel better than ever. they come in every color and have that neat extra part that the bar ends cover to keep dirt out and prevent twist grip. they wear out a little fast but they tend to be cheaper at most shops.
I had this post for about a year and a half before I switched out. While I had it, it was light and clamped beautifully. If you didn't know, it uses one bolt to clamp down on the seat rails with. I cut the post down which made it even lighter. It started breaking when I put the wrong sized seat rails in the clamp, so don't follow my example. Finally, it's really affordable, so if you want a light post but down want to pay $50 for the Macneil combo, the Intac is right up your alley.
I have had this chain for a full year and with the proper chain maintainance, it's perfect. I originally got this chain when I switched to 28/10 gearing but from other reviews, it sounds like it'll work with 25/9. It's really strong and I love the adjustability so you can dial in your chain length. My only complaint is the price, it's almost $30 but worth it
I really liked these grips. I tried these and the Gary Young signature grips (those are pre-worn) and I liked the Bantons way better. The guitars are tight and the grip lasted for a long time. They're thick but not too thick and cost about $9 on DansComp.
I have rode my 3 pairs of Profiles on my street bike for about a year and a half, 20" race bike for 3 or 4 years, and 24" race for 3 years (and they were previously used for 5 years!!!). They are very tough cranks just for any type of riding. Profile always makes the some of the best stuff on the market. I say keep up the good work and keep makin some awesome stuff!
Remove the grease that seems to come stock on these drivers and replace it with some appropriate lube. They are strong but seem to have a bad habit of skipping often enough, although they have a long bearing and contact surface life.
I got these pegs about 2 years ago because Animal is legit.
They are really nice pegs. Slide fast. Ends don't cave in like some other lite pegs. I ride a lot of street and park with these pegs and they always do their job.
