Hi guys i wanted start on customzie my bmx bike. i want to know should i go on a budget only why i ask is because i have a job im still in high school i only work on the weekends friday and satuday. i wanted to do odyessy mindnight blue bars, forks,cranks with my fit flow frame. the cranks cost the most. i want to know could i use any BB set with the odyessy thunderbolt cranks like kink BB. Should i just buy parts thats under 100.00 like stolen mission rant parts so i can be on a budget since i dont get that much hours I can still buy the cranks but i have to save up my money about a couple weeks.

double space bars 40.00 JR
odyesdy forks 99.99 NiagaraCycle
thunderbolt cranks 150.00 with BB dancomp acebmx.

JUST MAKE SURE THE SPECS FOR THE BB MATCH.

If your frame is mid, get a mid. If the cranks are 22mm, get a 22mm.

Okay, so on cranks, the midde part connecting the two crank arms is called a spindle. Ythe spindle comes in three sizes, 19, 22, & 24 mm. If you get 22mm cranks, you need a 22mm bb. And show us a pic of your old bb.

22 I think, im setting up a shopping cart I would suggest that would finish the ENTIRE bike for you. The color scheme would be yellow and chrome. But it is a suggestion. You might not like it, but it is what I would.do. So I'll be back with this shopping cart soon!

You can get whatever size bb(bearings) you want it just has to match the cranks you'll be getting. Thunderbolts are 22mm.

You can get a 22 or 19 mm bb on your frame. Those numbers have to do.with cranks. If a website says the cranks your looking at has a 19mm spindle, you have to get a 19mm bb. And for your frame, a mid bb. So to get said part, it would be a 19mm mid bb.

Yes. I can see why you got confused though. The bottom bracket on a frame is there to hold the bracket bearings. 'BB'

The most common size frame BB is mid. The bearings made for mid come in either 19 or 22mm options. 22mm is favored over 19mm for strength. It's obviously wider/thicker.

There is no easy way to explain it. But I am almost done with your shopping cart.

That cart is ok, I chose parts that I thought would work, and for those to lazy to click the link, here's some.screenshots of it. P.S., I love those pedals. But this cart is cheaper than alot of other options, and since it seems you are a beginner, these parts should do you just fine.Photo

If I were in his position I'd just buy a complete and ride already.
I wouldn't mind riding this, replacing parts as I go.

Sell the frame and save up and get a soundwave complete. Or the fit wifi, or Failure mainiac complete.

I like it. I was planning on buying that exact kit actually, but since you seem to be a beginner, I would hold off on the pegs, and they only cause problems if you can't grind.
