Been lurking since 01' registered since 03' and due to circumstances I don't feel like describing had to ditch my old account for this one in 05'.

Fuck I am old, but I still shoot footy with the old crew and ride pretty regularly at 32yo.

That's nuts. Didn't seem like the type you know?

no one ever seems like the type, hard times hit hard. With Collin it was his partner leaving him, could it be the same in this case?

How much for a dick sprocket?

Yeah, if it's made out of Au, $300 extra is a bargain, but it's probably too heavy to really ride.

2-Hip Pork what?

The best BMX film ever was the film all over my balls after I fell into an oil-slicked puddle trying a bunnyhop over it.

this is either a severely intelligent bot or one of the most insightful bits of bmx related babble I have ever read.

better pic of both failed plate and pin thread. Question is, which went first since the were on separate links.

Check your chain alignment, try to get it as straight as possible.

This is what I hate about frames these days, I have to risk scraping the teeth of my sprocket on the chainstay to get proper alignment.

Sorry to hear that. Obviously a blurry photo isn't going to tell the full story here but if you think there was any kind of design or manufacturing fault then please send it back for warranty. If it has a huge donk in it from hitting something then that is likely the cause (and obviously the threaded pin cant pull out like a normal rivet so some sort of break is expected) but if not then it would be good to have it back and try to work out the cause.

I hope this makes sense and seems reasonable.


I'll send it and the breaker back to you guys, from what I can gather-ie looking at the bits that broke-it seems like the threads broke on the 1/2 link, which wrenched on the adjacent riveted link breaking said link. I'll try to take a better pic later.

I'd also like to add that your "proprietary" chain breaker does not work correctly with the hollow pin chain. The plate stop has too small of a hole and does not allow the pin through, pretty suck because the breaker BROKE without it.

I am sorry if you are having problems, how many times have you had this happen? If you in any way think that your chain may be faulty then please contact warranty and we will be very happy to look at it. If you have previously ordered a masterlink kit then I would have thought we could sort something out or cut you a deal on the next one.

The keychain has been in development for a very very long time, and generally speaking we have seen very very few JRA type incidents, there are no modifications or V2's in the works. (though we are looking at doing slightly longer ones for non-BMX use). 

I hope this sounds reasonable.


Honestly, I had no problems with it up until now. I don't ride pegs, and ride a full guard sprocket. It was literally out of the blue and I can't exactly pinpoint which failed, the master-link or the link next to it.

the threads on the master-link pin completely sheared off

This is purdy nutty, such an awesome bearing design.
