This isn't a trend knocking thread. This is just for specific parts you dislike

Volume Mad Dog bars - Volume is sick but these bars man....theyre so horrendous looking. The bottom crossbar is just SO wide.

Fit FAF - slipperiest tires ever even though I dig ASM's. So I'm probably just really dumb

Colony wasp hub in oilslick.

1. Because oilslick
2. Sounds like you have a hoard of bees following you
3. Everyone I know personally who has run one has had issues with the springs
4. 3/8ths female bolts. That's a no-no with pegs, unless you grind light

They used to be amazing. When small bars were rad.

DK MPH headset. Didn't even get it installed and it broke.

Primo Wall tires-sidewalls/beads were CRAP, and combine with triple wall Hazards they were almost impossible to install without destroying.

Looseball cassettes. Just bad overall. Not worth it in any way.

Federal lacey frame. The geometry is nice. But there's loads of lacey fanboys round here. 4 out of the 5 frames I know about locally all cracked in the same place.

Pivotal seats. Since going back to railled, they look really goofy to me, like the pivotal thing is too far back on the seat, so it looks like it's got an over bite.

It's because that frame is a 'tribute' to a Haro frame from the 1980's. I guess the Haro frame was one of Rooftops first frames so he wanted something along the same lines.

agreed though, I thought they were dumb back then and still dumb today.

I actually really like it. Bashguards open up plenty of tricks and ideas that a guarded sprocket wouldn't hold up to. And it's refreshing to see something different that's actually practical. I know it's been done, but not for nearly 30 years!

Demolition anorexia hub.
Biggest piece of crap I've ever owned. I can't count how much bearings I've replaced for that thing. I didn't even really grind it either because the first time I did, the bearings exploded.

Odyssey made an offset post as well that is compatible with pivotal and railed seats.

The gsport ratchet and antigram are basically the same design. Its a 3 pawl system and its pretty beefy. I personally like a 4 pawl system. My reasoning is if one pawl breaks I can just remove the opposite pawl and run it with 2 pawls opposite to eachother.

running a hub without a pawl is a bad idea, running without 2 of them is even worse of an idea.


technically 3 pawls are more efficient, the reasoning being all 3 pawls engage at the same time, where as with 4 (not sure about 6 pawls though) there's a chance 1 or 2 of the pawls won't engage at the same time as the others and will cause skipping. Any hub is susceptible to skipping though but still.

When one of my pawls broke on my rant cassette, I did what I said and it worked just fine. Imo it is worse to have non-symetrical forces applied. Its just a theory on my part and I have no real evidence that it would be the best temporary fix.

While I waited to recieve the replacement pawl I rode it just as hard without 2 pawls and It ran fine. I only rode it for about a week and a half maybe 2 but I rode for around 6+ hours everyday for those 1 1/2- 2 weeks.

When I got the part in I opened it up and there was no noticable damage. Again, not saying this is the best idea but it just seems logical to my brain and its why I prefer 4 pawls.

With 3 pawl they engage at the same time, with 4 only 2 engage at the same time. That's what allows quicker engagement. Although, a few hubs come with the toothed pawls now so they engage even quicker, but the teeth wear fairly quickly.

A lot of people that use elite hubs (especially racers that use the cassette version) remove 1 or 2 springs/pawls. The engagement is quick enough without them, and they add a noticeable drag.

I dont understand this.

Everything I have researched has led me to believe this:

-3/8 Male is weaker than 14mm Male
-14mm Male is about equal or weaker than 3/8 female
-3/8 Female is weaker than 14mm Female

The theory is that because of the increased thread contact surface area, the overall strength is increased. The force is more evenly spread out and due to the axle portion being hollow and larger diameter than a male axle, it is actually stronger.

For instance take a solid price of rod iron the thickness of a straw and try to bend it. You can.
But make that same thickness of steel hollow and it becomes harder to bend.

Some female axles are aluminum with steel bolts and I can see that possibly being more of a problem but a chromoly female axle with chromoly bolts seems bombproof in my opinion...

I do not grind so I only speak from online research. But I have researched it very much.

14mm female > 14mm male > 3/8" female > 3/8" male, in terms of grinding anyway.

I base that on the fact that I've bent front 3/8" axle bolts, and have yet to bend my 14mm male axle in the rear which is/was much older than those bolts. And generally you grind on your back more than you grind on your front, so even with the added abuse on the rear axle, the front bolts bent quicker

Alloy female axles aren't meant for grinding. Maybe the G sport one's? But still not for heavy peg use. The profile site actually says their alloy axles are for race use only (or words to that affect)
