I've had my hollow pin keychain for almost a year with no issues.When I first installed it,I used thread locker on the pins for the master link and have yet to experience any of the problems some have had.

F#ck you Primo!


Because Brian Foster, that's why.

Yep and good old Stricker. Once both of them got kicked it was fuck you primo
I don't know about you and others but,I don't buy parts based on who rides for what company,I buy parts based on how they are made and the quality of them.At the end of the day,Primo is still making some of the same parts and designing new ones even though those two are not on the team anymore.

Seriously. Once the pedal insert gets sorted out with some loctite Powerbites are pretty much fool proof.
You know this and so do I,also many others do as well,yet there are a few that find it so damn difficult to do this very simple step in making something alot's just easier for them to wine and cry I guess.

so what you're really saying is we need idiot proofed cranks
They will never be made cause some idiot will find a way to mess them up.

i nearly threw up when i saw these. 2 piece powerbites? arreeeeeuuuurrrrrghhhhhhhh fuck you primo

Powerbite maintenance rules

1. grease the square ends of spindle = no creak (if you ride in the rain they will start creaking again)
2. tighten pinch bolts properly and evenly = no rounding out
3. grease pedal threads when installing = no insert coming out (ok maybe not totally true, but i find the inserts unthread a little way then stop. once you screw the new pedal back in the insert can also be screwed back in)

these new ones are disgusting though, another colossal primo fail
These 3 simple maintenace rules are very simple to follow,if you find them difficult to upkeep,you might want to consider wearing a helmet even when not riding your bike.

The easiest way to prevent the pedal inserts from coming out is this magical stuff called threadlocker,I've used it many times on many things and it really does work as advertised.

Ya well if they would learn how to follow instructions or suck up their pride and have someone install it for them that knows what they are doing,the problems would not have occured the way they did.

If kids are that effing stupid they don't know how to install something this simple without messing it up.They need to be wearing their bike helmet 24/7 365 days a year.

i bet this is going to be at about 50 euros in europe... looks like the best chain and i love the design but that is five to seven years of koolchain for me.
The Koolchain is crap.I never had a chain that stretched as much as it did.

This new Odyssey chain looks beefy as fck.It could give the Wippermann chains a run for their money.

you're probably a hamfisted moron and completely deserving of it if you manage to round out a 3mm allen broach.
You took the words right out of my mouth.

Instead of using moron I was going to use idiot.

I have no problems paying 40+ dollars for a good quality chain.A chain is something you don't want to skimp on.Alot cheaper than visiting a dentist to have your grill fixed due to a chaep chain snapping.

Looked them up on empire's website.

I'm sure they'll be sick, but what do think about those prices?

It's something new and Odyssey put a lot of money into it to get them made. I'm sure the factory making them required some special molds or something that hiked it up. Seems worth the price for the quality.

I'd imagine chains will be a bit pricier. I know Shadow hasn't released the new version of their Interlock chain because of pricing issues.
I would never consider using a halflink chain,let alone pay that kind of money for one,but I will definately be buying the new keychain.

It would be interesting to see what tool is needed to break this chain.
