6, you forgot the sprocket bolt.

This whole thread is full of stupid.

It looks like the only thing is shares with any previous primo cranks is the basic arm profile, id say they were designed to be 2pc...?

Possibly resolved the pedal inserts.
Splined axle, so that should reduce the creaking.
The clamp area on the arm is now a more regular thickness, ie no axle corners on the top/bottom - so that should stop the breakages that occurred there across there.
Half as many interfaces to worry about.

Woah, is this a bg exclusive or am I just miles behind the times? They look like a real improvement.

In reference to the primos that is...

Did baking the freezers pcb work?

Helping a local scene out with a shop dedicated to BMX, throwing jams and rides, and promoting the scene is great.

Coming to a street near you, Meatco Sweet Rides (no bmx/bike reference so i can reinvent myself as a scooter/extreme pogo shop when the bottom innevitably falls out of this shit), rinsing the fuck out of your wallets with a load of old '11 stock i bought up from mongoose and tshirts direct from india.

'holy shit meat, you're such a good guy!!!!111111'

Pay for a photographer and advert in ride? Fuck no ill go to the effort (ie name a time and place) of organising a jam and get a 4 page spread for fuck all. Just throw some meatco shirts (seconds, stained with childrens tears) and meatco stickers, so all you poor cunts can be a walking billboard to earn me more precious money.

'wow meat, you're the ghandi of bmx, we love you, etcetcetc'

Want to join the flow team?

You'd still be short of 1 joining pin/link thing wouldnt you? Assuming you cant push pins back into the chain....

When you read that, its actually just the seat tower thats exceeds stringent standards (din? perhaps not massively demanding?) by a factor of 4, whole and incredible, times....

Ah... guilty. I'm sure they arent structurally, but the parts do look rough as arseholes before they're machined? I figured it was more like laser sintering from a powder, rather than just a robotic welding arm....

Looks like it has fairly clear tool paths on it?

Well given the fairly limitless design possibilites adative manufacture allows, charges effort does look a bit unimaginative and casting like, especially in comparison to some of the other whacky shit up there?

I've heard gartners hype cycle mentioned regularly with regards to rapid prototyping, its a graphical representation of the publics reception of new technology over time, starting off from zero, with expectations growing hysterically, in our case sweating over entirely printed bikes, thoughts of downloading the latest cult stem off bit torrent and printing it in your bedroom, etc. Look theres 3d printing on the crest of the wave....

Then it all comes crashing down when you finally get your hands on one of the consumer products shown above and you realise how primitive the are in comparison to your 40 inkjet printer next to it. Oh and your printed frame you outsourced will cost more than your house and likely wont have the tolerances or strength of a bog standard tubular one. So that takes us to the very bottom, but eventually technology catches up and some of the original ideas can be realised and it levels off to a sensible state... were still a very long way from all this yet though, wouldnt go getting too excited avpbout it for now.

So with that bottle opener, you open the bottle, the cap falls down a bit and then sticks in the area with the magnet on the back, right?
