Hello, I got this bike from a friend a few years back and don’t know too much about it tbh. Couldn’t find the frame online so I was wondering if any of you guys could shed some knowledge on the quality of it. Just trying to figure out if it’s worth restoring or not. It’s def seen better days please don’t judge and I do have the other matching rim lol. Thanks!Photo

Check at BMXMuseum.com. They hate those sorts of questions so I don't know that I'd outright ask, but you might be able to see if they have something like that for sale & how much they are asking. It's free to join but to sell anything I think you have to be a member. You might be able to join & then lest your bike and photos & see if anyone says anything like "I'd love to own that!". Sorry I can't be more helpful.

What does it say on the bottom bracket? I remember a few WTP completes having the name on the BB.

Yeah, salt don't make frames. It's probably a wtp. As for asking price, it depends on the market in your area. In the UK you'd get £50, I doubt anyone would stretch to £100 but that's where I'd start, but expect to get knocked down
Edit: looks like a 2010 wtp reason. Nothing special

Yeah it does look just like that! But it has the salt logo in the frame so idk, you sure they didn’t make frames at some point?

It was the fork, sorry I really don’t know much about bikes

Yeah the fork is Salt. Salt is a budget parts sub-brand of WeThePeople. They use them on their complete bikes.

Salt parts came spec'd on WTP bikes

Cranks look like 48 spline though. Are those profiles?

It's the angle of the photo, they have a pinch bolt

Also, a few WTP completes have 8 spline cranks posing as 48 spline.

Yeah there’s alot of 8-spline cranks that do not have the pinch-bolt arms. Not as good as a 48-spline, but still better than them 8-spline with pinch-bolts

Are they though? 8 splines seem to be manufactured with a lesser degree of precision just due to their nature. Without a pinch bolt to keep everything tight, wouldn't everything wear prematurely?

Also I might be ignorant but I've never seen 8 spline cranks with no pinch bolts.

Yeah, that's a new one on me as well. Even the cranks that started it all, 401 Redline Flite Cranks, had 8-splines & a pinch bolt, as did their newer versions the 402's (double pinch bolts).

Sure as shit..... The Crysis is listed as having "8-spline cranks" & the pics show no pinch bolts.

Thought the same thing.... maybe a mild taper fit?

Then the arms won't compress the BB.

Press fit like the 48s. I’ve seen some pics with the snapped crank arms that had pinch bolts. For sure not Redline Flite quality lol

Yeah, I suppose they could make them with more precision than the pinch bolt type.
