Nope, but the correct springs should be readily available as spares.


Ok... I guess i only have to try to find and replace them.

I recently found what might be the cause of springs to break. I think it's the wobble on the driver bearing, it increased and result the pawls to not engage properly. I will confirm after i replace them in few weeks if anyone is interested.

Thanks man!
Actually, It's something, we didn't know. We are going to think, how to improve it.

P.S. We are going to finish a new cool improvement soon! It's awesome. I will write you here, when we publish it!

Thanks & Enjoy!

Maybe a photo from the middle of the trick or a brief gif on the tumbnail.

This is gay.

Well, I know people who are in need of that app. Think about newbie kids. and guys not speaking english around the world. I've heard too much weird names from people trying to name tricks.

Or you can make some aluminium cups like the american bb and use a spanish bb bearings.

Like already said, might only need a new locknut. I know about that We the people supreme hub that served for ages.

By the way, does anybody know if TSC/Primo/Profile or alternative spring will work for Antigram without a modification in the bent area?

Re: Wait, i think i seen a hub with same issue. There was a gap between driver bearings where a spacer were supposed to fit, that caused the driver moving to sides and was grinding against the locknut. check if bearings in driver are well placed.

Such expensive insurance! for us here insurance is not expensive at all, but customs surely are, wich result very expensive cars. For example an old Peugeot 205 average condition sells for 2500/3000 euros, no special options. Someone i know bought a VW Golf 5 for 4600 from Italy few years ago and paid like 9000 for customs.

Is it still for sale?

Yeah that paint shows it clearly now.

So to increase gripping, the bolt needs to be tight enough, and to avoid the end of spindle to expand (wich theorically may result the spindle boss to deform too, but this need to be revised considering if the materials used can withstand the tolerences to spring back or not) it desnt need to be overtightened. plus the pressure on the bolt must be constantly in check.

Looks like a new concept that needs maintenance

It seems that it is the case, but only for half the splines lenght. Isn't the goal to push the spindle and spindle boss splines against each others to increase grip using some sort of conic stuff inside? I might be quick to conclude.

Thats the case with all cranks when they are still new. Those arms look nice with that transparent green though.

Love me love me, say that you love me... lol

I didn't buy them or anything, I still have my old Powerbites, I just had a discussion with someone and wanted to check what exactly was the problem of those complete bikes.

I just checked other photos of those cranks and noticed they have three slits, not two as i thought, so rotating the slits 90 degrees won't really solve the issue. That photo above didn't show them clearly.

There's a french Vans team video in few cities of Morocco coming out soon, They came and i had the chance to meet them in Casablanca, Arnaud Wolff, Tom Devill, Antony Perrin, Nicolas Badet, Alex Valantino and the photographer Vince Perraud. they wanted to ride the spots of Casablanca but they were convinced by someone to go south. Anyway they visited some few spots in Casablanca before they left.

Man some of those guys are killing it!


Yeah, I was trying to figure out exactly what problem those slits would cause.... and I'm guessing "torsion." The force of cranks on a spindle is to twist the spindle in opposite directions. . . . .

Or maybe axial load on the pedal boss area, especially if many spacers are used in crank spindle. I think this issue could simply be avoided if those slits were 90 degrees rotated (i don't know if i explained that properly)

I truely think that's a fine concept to get more tightness and get rid of wobbling, at least for the half of spindle boss of the crank.

Good to be here again and see this. Only thing is tricks need to be easy to find by video or  something, because people who will search will have it in imagination and not in words. I hope that helped.

re: I have no idea why i thought he was a RFF, he's LFF and it is not a switch bar. i fixed that, sorry! i must get some rest haha.
