The Bike Shop / Re: dk golf bag now considered oversized luggage +$200 each way
« Last post by RideTheWoods on January 04, 2018, 04:56:32 PM »
So has anyone actually been charged or is this bullshit?

I have DK bag I haven't used in probably 5 years.  I do remember when I did used to use it more often, I would get hassled HARD for it being oversized, even then.  I was always able to talk my way around the fees, but one time flying United at LAX and arguing with the manager for half hour, I literally had to pretend to leave, and then came back in, spoke to a different counter agent who didn't hassle, and made my flight. 

I'm flying to Phoenix on Monday with Southwest Airlines, and now a little nervous due to the size restriction.  What you guys think?  Time to hunt down a smaller bag?   Anybody know if that Odyssey Hawk's Nest bag is within the oversized dimensions?

Actually I've got some rawed/polished Primo strands that have a bit of rust on them I'd probably let go cheap.

Sold / Bump.

Those bushings that you odn't use a tube spacer with have some serious issues. If you have pinch bolt cranks, your sprocket will move on the spindle and the bolt will come undone. If you don't have pinch bolt cranks, your crank arms will move on the spindle and the spindle bolts will come undone too. Not to mention that without a tube spacer, dropping the bike on the cranks/pedals is no good for the bushing/bearing on that side of the BB...

Yeah, I rode it with a profile set and tried my best to make it work. If I tightened the cranks enough for it to not come loose I couldnt crank and if I did it enough for my cranks to spin the cranks would come loose really quickly. Had to use a lot of lochtigh but was still too annoying in the end so changed back to regular bearings.
Used a splined drive sprocket so had no issue with the sprocket.

With laz's good sense in materials and Carlos's engineering that eastern bushing bb can live again.
I can get an old Bizhouse one from the local shop for next to nothing haha, I was always skeptical about those though.

You could also take a look at 34R ORTO bushing BB's, they come in Span and Mid, 19-22mm, I've used both Span and Midd in 22mm and they are awesome+light. Won't work well with Wedge cranks aka Odyssey Wom/Twom and Thunder. You use the crank arms bolt as tension on the BB for how much resistance/drag you wan't. Very Nice.

I ride with a very small crew and go to skateparks and ride with whoever wanna ride. In my area most young kids are quite cool to be around but the 18-25 year olds (which is most riders here) tend to be a bit annoying. Only ride street and act all gangster all the time.

I got injured a year ago, bought a flat and now just got an expat contract and moved abroad, so I have barely been riding for a year. Nowadays it seems like I only go on organised trips with my crew twice a year. Might bring my bike here during springtime to find new friends.

Carlos, why stop at Spanish? They're SO heavy! Euro too!  Why not just run bushings??!!

I actually tried the KHE gen. 1 bushings as I had a problem with my cranks spinning whenever I took my feet off (rode some flatland at the time). It was sooooooo annoying to ride with. Would have to kick-start each crank.
They added a small bearing in the gen 2. It is still a silly idea but for someone like you it might be interesting.
