I use washers on top of the slammers, always do with everything even pegs, you get better torque and what ever you're bolting down wont catch and grind if washers are used.

Yeah they sell a bit of random stuff from what I can see. The justice frame looks good, good geo, I think they stopped making it though ?

Added reply in a thread Pola Frame 2/12/2019 3:09 PM

Yeah definitely looks lower but I think it's that way because of the very low bb 11.25"

Yeah for sure can agree. 2.1-2.3 is quite big enough and as big as needed to go tbh. But what ever sells.

Speaking of salt their Echo headset is extremely well made especially for the price and the 2 different dust caps they provide with it is awesome. Best headset so far and I've had a lot of brands.

Just saw a new frame from your friendly neighbour hood mafiabikes. It's called the pola frame. I've always liked low SO frames and find the BBH to be quite interesting. I'd love to try out this frame with that BBH I think it would be interesting. Geometry: ... more »

That's the issue with wider BB's to accommodate moto tyres unfortunately.

Agreed, and is my favourite one so far out of all wishbones currently out.

They used to be way better. I don't think there are any magnetic hubs if that's what it actually is for freestyle,which would be something new, really can't say until we get the scoop on it. I know there are some for MTB, Road ?.

I feel the exact same way. Their new stuff is pretty basic, old Fly was way more innovative. Oh nice what version/colour did you grab ? Throw up some shots, definitely one the the best frames they made I think. I still have a v3 sitting in my room. Great ... more »

Im hoping they also do it out of 7075.

How wide do you guys think the BB's will get for "bigger better" tyre clearance ? Along with tyre size as well since they go hand in hand. I'm mostly concerned with chain alignment as it gets worse the wider the BB gets.

I wish they still made 68mm BB's. But but it has 2 tubes. Wishbone only one nice one.

Very nice. I love mine. Perfect geo. Went through a shit ton of different geo throughout the years same as you and came to 75 HT 20.4-6TT 71 ST 11.5bb 12.9RE 7.4-7.8SOH

I'm really digging this new investment cast yolk type chain stay. It's very nice. I can see as someone else mentioned them doing a true wishbone version of it (Boner). And no this is still a double bend investment cast chainstay not a wishbone. I think ... more »

I'm surprised people are still super interested in profile hubs despite the wibble wobble problem their hubs tend to get because profile can't get their tolerances on point or have they?. There are better built hubs out there but in terms of customizability ... more »

Yeah had a feeling it'd have something to do with magnets due to its name. Very interested in it. Might be something new to look forward to instead of the same regurgitated cookie cutter catelogue clone parts that are out these days.
