That sprocket doesn't work with those cranks. Even then, both those cranks and that sprocket are not the best choice. Avoid "heavy duty" tubes, they do nothing but add rotational weight. Stick with regular tubes. Don't get butted spokes, and don't get aluminum nipples unless they are G-Sport. Also, go for a hollow Odyssey Keychain over the Shadow chain. The Odyssey chain is stronger, more durable, easier to use, lighter, and cheaper.

Beat me to it, pretty much the exact same thing I was gonna say haha



Also, you're missing forks just in case you didn't know. Before you ask, get Odyssey or Sundays

They'll be fine, just make sure you get the right size pegs for them. Front needs 3/8", rear needs 14mm. Some pegs are 14mm with a 3/8" adapter though, but yeah.

Some people love profile cranks but mine felt terrible. They felt like rubber, always bouncing all over the place. Maybe the 22mm version are better but i would just get odyssey or bonedeth cranks instead if i were you.

Yeah I thought all the emo kids died out once My Chemical Romance broke up and MySpace went under.


But seriously MySpace is still around and the only thing it's good for is looking at old photos/videos.
