So here is a bike check for shits 'n' giggles.


Frame: Eastern Journey 21"

Fork: Odyssey Flatland Minimal Offset 3/8

Bars: Animal Sways

Stem: Shadow Top Load (5 + years old)

Headset: Half Eastern Half Fly

Grips: Odi Longneck

Bar Ends: Shadow Aluminum

Front Brake Lever: Stock from Eastern Boss-2010

Front Brake Cable: Jagwire housing, Bulk shop cable (jagwire)

Front Brake: Diatech 990 with Fiesta Upgrade Kit

Front Rim: Primo Hula Hoop (5 Plus years old) 36h

Front Spokes: Various

Front Hub: GSport Monkey, 3/8ths, 48h

Front Tire: Odyssey Dirt Path, 20X2.2

Cranks: Eastern Nomad, 175MM I think

Pedals: Odyssey Twisted PC

Sprocket: Mosh with Bash Guard, 25t

Chain: KMC Kool WITH master link

Rear Brake Lever: Odyssey M2 With Dual upper cable

Gyro: Odyssey GTX-R From when it first came out (like 8 years ago)

Lower Cable: SST Oryg Dual cable Kit with Odyssey London Mod

Rear Brake: Fly Chainstay

Rear Hub: Eastern Birectional, 36h, 9t

Rear Spokes: Stock from Prebuilt wheel

Rear Rim: Alex Supra J Triple Wall, 36h

Rear Tire: Odyssey Dirt Path 20X2.2

Seat: Macniel Fat Capital

Seat Post: Primo 300-something MM

Seat Clamp: Integrated

Pegs: Terrible One Aluminum core chromoly sleeve.

Hub Guard: Sometimes I run one, FBM


Custom Mods: Dual lower cable cross junction-made out of spare housing and zip ties to get better pull on the brakes and eliminate flex of the cables when I pull them (No more spongy feel). Also protects the frame from scratching from cable rub. Use Wet Chain Lube for my driver, made a special barrel adjuster setup for my front brake (brake arms are supposed to be rear only), uncut bars, trimmed the seat post down some, custom lacing pattern for front wheel (48h hub to 36h rim).


Pretty sure that is all for special mods and stuff. Alrighty. Killed like 15 minutes with this one.

Agreed that looks ingenious. I've tried for about 3 hours before to get dual cables run so they didn't carve up the seattube but never figured a solid way out.

Mine don't hit my seat tube.

There is a good amount of space actually.

Yours do?

Actually this was a bike at the shop where I work. We don't do many bmx bikes, so we didn't have any seattube mount cable guides in stock...and due to the way the cable sat in the brake, it HAD to cross behind the seattube. That made it contact the seattube, yes. I don't remember the exact situation, but I know we ended up ordering a seattube mount cable guide.

I cross mine behind the seat post to get a better pull on the brakes, and what I do is cut two pieces of cable housing, one for each cable, and just ziptie them together in front of and behind the seat tube so they don't slide around. It works really well, and if you put a little grease or teflon lube in the housing, they pull amazingly. My rear brake with 4 cables pulls like my old straight cable.

There would be a lot of space if I didn't cross them.


As to the edit, we got some snow today, and under it is icy, and on top of that I messed my neck up the other day. Won't be a decent edit from me for a while unfortunately. But I will try to get one going when I ride next (bout two weeks is my next park run-I will get some footage).

My problem was getting something that would be reliable. That's awesome that you figured that out. It's so simple and effective. The zipties all stay where they're supposed to? And the ferrules aren't forced off the housing by the zipties?

Nope, I lightly pinch the ferrules on so they can't come off, and put a ziptie around each housing, and then one between the two so I could custom set up the angle etc. The way it is set up, the housing barely tries to move (I used to have nothing holding them in place, they occasionally moved), so the zipties just keep the tiny bit of movement in check.
