Hi guys recently my buddy at my local park was riding the big box jump and snapped his eclat stevies clean off at the steerer tube. They were only about 6 months old he got a concussion and and stuff (with a helmet on). We both ride a lot of big stuff and I'm pretty hard on my bike in general. After he crashed I checked the welds on my fit blades and there were cracked almost all they way around on both fork arms after about a year of use. Forks breaking on a big jump is one of my biggest bmx fears. I'm thinking about getting the oddesey r32s are there anything anybody thinks is stronger? Weight is not an issue. I get parts aren't gonna last forever but I'd be nice to get a couple worry free years in. Thoughts?

Get the Odysseys. Or Sunday. Both are pretty much the same thing. Strong & lifetime warranty.

Deffiently awalys check my welds maybe I should do so more often but my buddys stevies broke inside the steerer tube right were it joins at the bottom no way he could have seen it comming. Scares me cause those are supposed pretty high end forks. Right?

They designed the legs and drops well and didn't upgrade the steerer tube. Eclat must've fucked up. Or they were just a bad one.

My friend who rides park says the only forks he hasn't broken on little stuff are his r32. He tried a giant gap, forks snapped, knocked his teeth out and had a seizure. Oddy sent him 2 brand new pairs and he still runs them, just doesn't ride very much park anymore.

For the record, WE ALL take our lives into our own hands when we ride, doing big things or not. A part breaks and you fall just right and you're done. That simple. Could be a bar end stabbing you, could be a few spokes puncturing your leg, could be a frame snap to face smash.

So when people are like "I never work on my bike" and then something snaps and they whine, I have no sympathy for them.

In ANY other sport they INSPECT THEIR EQUIPMENT. BMX should be no different, especially if you are doing more than just riding down the street.

Odyssey, or Pitchforks.

If pitchforks, get the new ones with the H24 cap.

I'd agree that Odyssey is a great fork.

My thoughts exactly. I was planning on getting Stevie Forks actually . I like how they were "designed with strength in mind" and can last a truck down el toro . This guy must have flip whipped off Mt Everest or something
