Cool

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

Really don't get the hype I see this shit everywhere. They took forever to produce it so why should they get my money? (Same how I feel about the Eclat Blind coaster)

It's just a chain.

I can see myself buying this eventually, but I'm defo waitin' a while to hear some legit reviews first.

That hex threaded master link kinda sketches me out tho. Time will tell I guess.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

The reason they should get your money is because they took forever to produce it. It has been in the works for years. If you want products to be rushed, you'll end up with low quality parts.

This is just a chain in the same way a hurricane is just a storm, a lion is just a cat, etc. I could talk about all the benefits, but the description tells you all you need to know.

Probably the dumbest logic i have ever read.

they have to make it with the least amount of flaws possible. The more they come across the more they have to fix and the better it ends up getting.
Thats like saying when the G-Coaster finally comes out "Oh no they took to long to make it perfect, I'm not going to buy it and get a Odyssey Reloader instead because it came out soon after it was leaked and its nice and unreliable"

Other than that i will probably buy the solid one and it looks tough as tits but still no 415 Street chain

but how? the pins are rounded.... does it mean you use a chain breaker to make the orginal break then do the pin afterwards?

Yes. It comes with an adapter. It takes around twice the normal force to push the pin out, but you only need to do it once so it won't be too bad.

I plan on getting one but it will probably be the solid version, don't really care to pay extra for the hollowed out pins.

Getting rid of all the gold on my bike and have to make my mind up on a chain. Was going to get a 410h but this looks intriguing. But then again I don't really need the strength of this and the kmc is cheap and plenty strong. And the kmc is cheaper. Eh. Making my mind up in this post. Kmc. When I snap it I'm taking it as a sign from the bmx gods I should spend a bigger dollar on a chain. But it looks like they took a bluebird and pumped steroids through it. And then added a revolutionary masterlink design.

No need for a chain breaker.. Less tools to carry around. Look at cod it takes them a year to make not that good of a game. But if you gave them 4 years to make a game it should be a fucking good game.. Same with parts it's tested to failure the. Fixed and so on.

$35? No thanks. My maximum on chains is $20, so I'll be sticking with 510's with half links. If I want to get all fancy I'll get a Bluebird.

The hollow pins should be at least as strong as your average pin. Remember, they're 5mm diameter, not the standard 3mm. Kinda like a solid 19mm spindle versus a hollow 22mm spindle.

I'm personally getting the hollow version if Dan's gets them since I have rewards points. If Dan's doesn't get them, I'm buying a gun and one bullet instead.

"Hollow version is 300g, solid is 335g I think. However the hollow pin is also a little bit harder to push the pins out of because the hole through the middle makes it easier to rivet the ends over extra hard. I would highly recommend the hollow pin version as it is lighter AND even stronger, AND using the above tricks you don't need a chainbreaker." -G
