Can't believe I'm saying this, but go for the Supreme until a revised Keychain comes out.

The "official" way is to loosen the bolt and do switch footed hops until they come off.

Added reply in a thread Does anyone have any info on where all the bikes are made? 1/20/2018 5:49 AM

That’s exactly what I said, looks like a high school shop project. I sent mine back because not only were the welds shitty, but the headtube was ovalized so I couldn’t even ride it.

Damn, the S&M made Barcode I had 3 years ago was almost this bad. What the fuck is S&M doing? Also, fwiw, Taiwan is not China. A 5 year old is not making your parts.

I don't think it's a matter of good or bad, but rather that it just never picked up. There were like 3 non-Odyssey Socket Drive sprockets, but everyone I know that had Socket Drive loved it. I agree that Socket Drive should have been the basis for universal ... more »

Damn, I am sad. Did not know that. Socket Drive is perfect. The part about 22mm spline drive is serious, though. There's two different angles for the splines that are used by companies, and no one can figure out which is which and what works with what ... more »

22mm spline drive got fucked up and is now ruined. Socket Drive is the future and needs to be more widely adapted.

Added reply in a thread BMX Fork Buying Guide 1/7/2018 9:45 AM

You’ve never seen a fork snap at the steerer? A 25mm thread leaves less than 2mm of material. It’s just too weak. It doesn’t matter if a stems on it or not, if it’s too thin it’ll fail. A lot of force is going to the top part of your steerer tube right ... more »

Stems don’t have threads man.

Added reply in a thread BMX Fork Buying Guide 1/7/2018 6:12 AM

It’s also important to note that using 25mm fork bolts result in a significantly weaker fork than 24mm bolts. Odyssey started using 24mm bolts, and other companies tried to copy with a 25mm off the shelf size, but that leaves the top of the fork super ... more »

Added reply in a thread Wish bones. 1/5/2018 6:02 PM

Wishbones are objectively stronger. Just a more sturdy design and much more weld contact. Frames almost never crack at the stays, at least these days, so it's more a matter of resistance to twisting and a stiffer feeling. A frame with wishbone(s) will ... more »

Wishbones are actually much stronger laterally. You can feel the difference.

No doubt, but at the cost of a weakened front end. I prefer to keep my face over a slightly lower top tube.

Added reply in a thread Gsport Birdcage Or Odyssey 7KA 11/1/2017 8:05 AM

Birdcage is plenty strong and noticeably lighter than most other rims. I would recommend them. If you're a heavier rider though, I'd go for 7KAs.

Added reply in a thread NoWear BMX 11/1/2017 8:04 AM

This man knows. NoWear is definitely cool but that frame is sacrificing strength for uniqueness.
