The Bike Shop / Re: MID BB width

I've seen varying widths over the years, I think they went wider for more tire clearance now that 2.45 tires exist. If it's too long you can always add more spacers, as long as that doesn't push the pedals out too far.

G why did all the Q-factors get so wide???

The Bike Shop / MID BB width
« Last post by Davet on August 06, 2018, 04:07:42 PM »
Has the standard width for MID BB changed since it came out?, I have a S&M dirt bike from about 7 years ago with the mid BB and I just got some new Madera cranks, the spindle is 6" and too long, the profile site says "5.625″ (For BMX Freestyle Bikes)" I was gong to get a new frame in a couple months anyway but just wondering, thanks!

It looks like it would have been a change from 68mm to 73mm, it's not something I've ever thought about, I just thought there was one width for mid bbs

Is that Cult frame still available? Good looking bike.
Thanks!

No one has anything new to share?

I just did a clutch swap in my car. God damn it was a pain. Had 3 days off work and needed to get it done on jackstands. We made it though. No more slipping clutch is awesome. Shit, being able to shift is awesome.

Made some big boy moves recently.

If you alreayd have an antigram and want to save some wate, have you considered an Alu axle?

I would assume that any hub would do for light street, just list by weight on a shop´s site.

But why 48 if you want light and ride light street?

Are there any litewate cassettes that are lighter than the anti gram? For “light street”
I do occasionally grind but not hard and sloppy
Ti parts and 48h  and 10t is desirable
Should I try profiles?

Teasing you in retaliation for being cheeky aside, I'll tell you what it does. It's nothing super amazing, and it doesn't even benefit me as I run my chain intentionally loose for crankflips and for a bit of extra time to start pedalling backwards in fakies

What it does is go a big way to minimizing tight spots in your drive train. Imagine running a slightly oval sprocket instead of a round one. Every 180' you are going to have a tight spot, and 90' from that a loose spot. Slip fit sprockets, particularly when paired with a slip fit hat washer (which isn't always the case) will make the sprocket sit a bit eccentric (off-centre), causing a similar effect (except every 360' instead of 180')

This is only really an issue if you tension your chain, but a lot of people in BMX do exactly that, particularly in racing to reduce wasted effort in pulling the chain taut before it actually moves the driver

In freestyle a lot of people wouldn't care or notice. But it is a clever bit of engineering that does have some effect. Wombolt family got a bit of a bad rep early on, but George did some clever things like this. Another clever thing was the spindle -> non drive side arm joint - it sets a proper preload (Edit: something very problematic with spline interface cranks like Profile) without having to rely on pinchbolts
