I should have asked about these parts before I ordered them... oh well....

-Colony Pinnacle Front Wheel
-Colony Pinnacle Rear Wheel
-Fiction Troop Forks
-Odyssey Elementary V3 Stem (part 1 of my retardation)
-4 BSD Kriss Kyle Unit Pegs
-Kink Ideal Barends
-Dans Rim Strips
-Snafu Dual Gyro Cables (part 2 of my retardation)
-Primo WLT Tire (not in the pic) size 2.3

So I realized AFTER my 499 dollar order of parts, this stem might not work very well with a gyro setup because of how hollow it is in the back. SO NOW I MUST ASK... would this stem get screwed up with a gyro setup really bad.... and has anyone done, seen or even HEARD of a gyro setup with this stem..

Although it DID have FREE 1 DAY shipping so at least I do not have to wait too long, seeing as the holidays are SUPER close.

budget.... needed forks and had to be under budget ($500 budget)...... the struggle is real haha

in reality, mainly the offset, yes I know, not the strongest but to be honest, the only forks I ever managed to bend were hi-ten steel dk forks off a walmart bike so I think these will hold up fine

then you should have spent less on other parts, rather than the one that takes a ton of abuse, and will leave you with the most injury if it breaks

Forks are the most important part of your bike ; you want a good pair. Friction ones shouldn't break but they won't be as good

I think the stem and gyro will work. I think one of the Odyssey rider had that combo actually.

I'm guessing you doing this from your insurance money.. You could of waited till tom to order a fork.. I'm saying this because you said that you can only spend 500 because it's your card limit to something?

quite possibly the worst stem ever made next to the kink relief

quick question, does the option for dans rewards pop up every time or only once and then does it automatically?

I don't think the Dans rewards points are real.

That stem will work with a gyro. Putting the plate under the stem should be fine. it may spin around a bit but will work.

did you buy that stem because it was cheap?

You should have bought bars instead of forks, and then bought better forks later

Me either only reason i ordered from them was to prove it, if i dont get points i want to make it go viral that dans sucks and tries to scam people into buying from them so they can get points, so far this is what my account says Photo

i believe you need a lot of points to have it show up on something. but all in all i do not care about the point thing because it is so long term to even buy something with it

they are... They go through the account. And when you have enough it should pop up by the shipping and you can redeem them. They don't automatically apply themselves.
