Thanks a lot for explaining all this to me. Ya'll saved me from wasting money. I was about to start ordering what I *thought* I needed, but I decided to post here first and get some opinions. I would have ended up with parts I couldn't use. I may try ... more »

Thanks to both of you for the help with this. Do you know if this would work with what I have? https://shop.odysseybmx.com/products/pre-load-bolt I may just go ahead and order a preload bolt if that would be the easiest solution. Thanks again.

I want to run some front brakes down the steerer tube, but I'm not sure what kind of hollow bolt I need to do this. I have an Odyssey stem/headset. I would prefer to just get a simple 1 1/8" hollow bolt rather than buy a whole preload bolt. Can anyone

I finally got some smaller tyres. I ended up getting the Odyssey Performance G's. They're 1.75 so this is going to be a drastic change from the 2.4's I've been riding.

No updates yet, but I'm leaning toward the Haro HPF 2.0's. I like the Kendras, but I can't find those anywhere. As soon as I get the tires and get them put on, I'll post the before and after photos. I'm looking forward to ditching those 2.4 monsters! ... more »

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm thinking between 1.9 to 2.0 is where I want to go next. The 2.4's are just too big for the things I want to do, so I figured the 2.0 Haro's would be a happy medium. I'm also thinking of adding some front brakes, so hopefully ... more »

Thanks Fortyseven! That helps a lot. That's a drastic different in size in those before and after pics. The Kendras you have are exactly the size I would like to have on my bike. I may have to opt for those instead of the Haros. I'll check out that thread ... more »

I have a 2021 Sunday Primer Park with 2.4 Odyssey Path Pro tyres. I want to go with some smaller tyres that are better suited for flatland/freestyle, but I'm not sure what would work and what would be best. I was thinking about Haro HPF 2.0 tyres. Does ... more »

Added reply in a thread If You *Had* to Get Side-Pull Front Brakes.... 8/16/2020 8:33 AM

Thanks for the suggestions. The brake mount kits or buying a new fork is just too expensive for what I want the brakes for. And those mount plates cost around $40. I'm mainly adding the front brakes as an alternative to footjams. I've been learning tricks ... more »

BTW, this is what I would like to get, but I can't find these for sale anywhere:

This would pretty much solve all my problems.

I've decided that I definitely want to get front brakes on my bike to do various flatland/freestyle tricks, but my fork only has the mount for old school side pull brakes above the wheel. The adapter plates for u-brakes are almost impossible to find, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Front Brake Dilemma 8/3/2020 10:32 PM

My main concern is just whether I can get the brake cable up through the fork without it rubbing against the front wheel. There's just such a tiny amount of space and seems like no room for error.

I noticed the wobbling today. I'll post a video of what it looks like. The bike is only a couple of weeks old and has been ridden very lightly over this time. Can anyone tell me if this is a normal amount of wobbling to be expected, or if I might need ... more »

I took the lever apart while trying to tighten things up a bit. When I tried to put it back in I found I couldn't get it back in with the two golden washers. I can use one washer and get it to fit in, but it's too loose. Seems like there's about a mm

Thanks for all the suggestions. I went ahead and placed an order for the Jonesin pedals. Looks like exactly what I need.

I have small pedals right now but am getting ready to upgrade. It definitely helps matters that I'm wearing some undersized and old school shoes that I've had for ages now.

Added reply in a thread Mounting Brakes to a Brakeless Frame 7/27/2020 2:30 PM

Those brake plate adapters that someone mentioned seem like a great idea. Unfortunately, they seem to be hard to find. I noticed they are out of stock on a lot of websites.

Added reply in a thread In Search of Bigger Pedals 7/25/2020 2:27 PM

Thanks. I'll look into those Odyssey pedals. I also noticed some Rant Trill pedals that look to be of a decent size, but I haven't seen many reviews on those.
