I'm selling some cranks on CL and some kid asked if they would fit his "Decathlon" . He doesn't have anyother info on the bike, but sent me this pic...

Anyone know anything about these bikes... specifically what type of bottom bracket they have? It looks to have 3-piece cranks on it, so I'm assuming that they're probably 19mm and the ones I'm selling will work. I think these things are made in France and sold in the UK, so I'm having a hard time finding anything.
HELP ME OUT, I wanna sell my cranks, lol!

Yeah, I know... I don't know why he would wanna bother with this thing, but oh well... do you know if it has a mid BB? I did tell him to take it to his LBS and ask them, but he just asked if I could look at it for him. I could find out by the numbers on the stock bearings, right?

my guess is its an unsealed american BB. if it is he just has to buy a sealed mid BB with american cups.

Looks like a american bb all he needs to do is get a sealed mid bb and those bearings should work in the cups of that frame just make sure to get the right size bb for the spindle

I got a little more info from the dude. It's a Decathlon St. 5.2 (still can't find any info online).
He also sent me this blurry ass pic of the BB...


So are we still saying Mid BB with American cups?
Couldn't he just keep the BB that's in there as long as the bearings are 19mm (which I'm guessing they are if he has 3 piece cranks on there now)?

Looks like a euro bb to me from that last pic
He'd be better off buying a new bb though since his stock spindle looks like it's probably threaded as well

10/25/2011 9:25 AM

is THIS what he needs?
Or THIS?

I thought they looked threaded at first too, but then I thought that may be just a bunch of spacers?

LMAO, I finally told him that tonight. I told him to save his money and just get something else... that thing probably weights a ton and it has v-brakes for crying out loud, lol. I said he'd be better off just saving about $100 and buying some kids GT or Haro off Craigslist.

My bad, both euros are the same. When I looked at the second one I only saw the pic of the mid version
The mechanik will be easier to have long term though since the fsa uses a special tool that might get lost eventually

Why is the bike a piece of shit?

I'm planning on buying the same bike. Why do you consider it a piece of shit?

|

9/27/2012 9:36 AM

It should be obvious, this thing won't hold up to current bmx

Lets go through a few things.

1. It had/has a kickstand.
2. It has/had v-brakes.
3. Its old.
4. It weighs a tonne, now I don't like being a weight weenie, but that thing probably weighs like 42lbs.
5. Look how its put together, just by looking at the bottom bracket I can tell its junk.
