Before I sold my bike it was ruben tires. I can't think of a part that makes a bike look better than a set of rubens.

Oh I remember the primo pro stems, my mate had one, I was almost going to by one myself but never got around to it I liked the fact that it had the degree's on the side for your bars, did the degree's actually work or was it just for show ? I never got to test it out. How would you determine them from the back of the bar, front or center ?

The 4th spoke nipple, anticlockwise from the valve, on my front wheel, when viewed from the drive side. Though it sometimes varies between that and the front left bolt in my stem, i'm fickle.

Without a doubt my million year old Marmoset front hub.

I got it back in the summer of 2007 IIRC.  I think it came from the first year that G-Sport moved production overseas, as I bought it off of JoeV and he had ridden it for a while before I got it.  It actually has a small triangular dent in the middle of the shell from when he had it.  No idea how it got there, but it's always worked fine.

I've replaced the bearings once, and I've built it to 4 different rims now and it's still going.  Kinda nuts to think about that it hasn't shit the bed yet as it's pretty old, and I haven't exactly taken the best care of it.  It's always been on my bikes that see the most abuse.

Its between;
 - My S&M Intrikat bars that has a geometry so different than anything else yet perfect for me
 - My Marmoset hub with BSD guards that just spins so lovely and just screams durability
 - My KHE Ehrlköning flatland cranks which are super light. I expected them to die within a month of me riding street and park but is still perfect.

Odi Longnecks, kind of wish I still had my brown Edwins though. They were amazing. Second to that it'd be the trailmix pedals or fly ruben tyre.

Nice, that's a refresher haven't seen one in years, I went with the 7k on the front and rear never had any problems with them, great rim plus really digged the profile/shape of it as well. Currently on Sun Rhyno Lites.

The Shimano DX pedals I've had for like 13 years.

That reminds me of the Shimano DXR front hub I laced up last year. I worked in one of the bigger bike shops in Canada, and this poor hub had been reduced down to $30, not including staff discount. The fact that it was a female axle had me swervin. It's loose bearing, which is nice if you're capable of servicing it. I know from my Shimano Parralax mtb hub that sometimes those shits goes 20 years without service. It's simplesexyAF and smiling on my trails bike.

So because it was so unappreciated by the Calgary BMX community at large, its one of my favourite things.  ;D

Doesn't matter which bike I'm on, my favorite part is always the stem. There's something magical about that carved block of aluminum that just makes me happy. Bike #1: Odyssey CFL, black. Bike #2: Sunday Freeze, red. Bike #3: Odyssey SXTN, green.
