I'm in the process of ordering more Odyssey parts for my build, and I've just brought a used Odyssey CFN Stem. It's about 15 years old i think, and I'm also riding an Odyssey Dirt Classic Fork, which is about 10 years old. It got me thinking about what you guys' oldest part is, and I'd like to see how old some of your parts are.

My animal seat and post are both from around 05/06 I think

My cranks are older profiles that I have no idea how old they are but they have the 7mm spindle bolts which they haven’t used in a long time I think. If anyone knows or remembers I’d love to know lol

I just got new triple traps, but the ones I was just running were from 1991 if I remember correctly..

Odyssey Hazard Lite complete cassette wheel (V2) that was bought new around 05-ish. Probably rode it everyday for about 2yrs and on & off the last 15yrs. Replaced the bearings about a year ago, because the old ones were getting crusty.

My KMC Z410 chain has been with me since 2015. My Maxxis Ringworms from 2016.

Earlier this year, I got a Gsport Ribcage laced to a Mutant Owl MK2 cassette, both parts on my setup now. The Gsport up front and Mutant Owl in the rear. I’m the third or fourth owner, and I was told they’re very old, just not sure how old lol.

I have a pair of dice valve caps that have pretty much been on every bmx I have owned since the 90s.

I’ve just got a new stem, but I had an OG animal jump off stem until then. before that I had a fbm crown royal v2. This time last year I had a fit eccd seat. But currently it’s my rims, g sport rollcages that I got a few years ago 3rd or 4th hand, at a guess I’d say they’re 10 years old

Stem probably-it's an ORIGINAL Shadow Topload from 05/06 or so.

Thing still hasn't slipped.


Or my Shadow Metal Bar ends from around the same time.

Currently I've had my seat post since early 2012, cranks and front rim are from 2013, frame, forks, stem, back rim, lever, brakes were bought in the same order in 2015.

From 1999 to 2012 I had the same pair of Peregrine bar ends. I retired them at the time since I ended up getting bars with threaded bar ends.

The oldest part I've continuously used since new is an FBM integrated headset I bought it in 2013. Oldest part I run in general is probably my Odyssey Civilian bars which are before 2010.

The oldest part on my bike is probably my S&M redneck stem. Not sure exactly how old it is but I know it's midschool era

|

My rear wheel is 11 years old. My stem has been on my bike for maybe two years, but was a prototype cyclops so could be much older

Love the early gens. They rereleased them too but I'm already riding 2 PMA's on my bikes so I don't wanna let go of those.

I’m running the pivotal seatpost off my first modern complete bike, it’s from a 2009 wtp trust. Only part I got left from it. You guys are way more exciting than me haha

I think my Primo Hulu hoop 48 hole rim is pushing +20 years old. It's laced to a profile SS hub that's about the same age. 1 of my Primo powerbite crank arms is 22 years old (design before they added the smell pedal boss), I retired It into the spares bin just because the pedal is seized and updated my pedals.
Just picked up a Hoffman disruptor from like 2005 with same era parts, had Odyssey Hazard wheell set, Promo powerbite cranks, and an OG tree sprocket.
Most of my parts are pushing at least 10 year old other than rubber goods.

My animal OG pegs are from 2008/9 I think.
My Gsport hubs are from 2011 and still bombproof.

My cranks by far are ancient. Bike got jacked recently, So building as new bike I threw on some Powerbite cranks. They have never let me down to this day. And they don't flex like fucking Profiles.

Most bars from 10 years ago are short enough to cause me back pain from hunching over. (rise of 6-7" was common during that time frame)
