So my friend gave me odyessy dirt classic forks but the dropout size is 14mm, is it okay to run a 3/8 axle on a 14mm fork because my local bike don't have any adapters to fit them? also, does danscomp or any website that has bmx parts have any adapters to sell? Can someone also tell me how much do adpters cost? (please reply)

Albe's or Dan's should have them. Empire might also. Hit 'em up online or make some calls.

You can run it without adapters fine

I definitely would not run it without adaptors. I did on the Forks I have now, and it ended up warping the dropouts, infact the 15mm Locknuts for the Bearings ended up going in to the the 14mm dropouts. I ended up having to make up some special pieces that go round my Axle and the in the dropout cutout as well as adaptors to keep my wheel in.
