Does anyone know what the maximum tire clearance is on Odyssey F-25's? I have a set of Rampera tires that I love, but the 2.35" hardly fits in my Freestyle Classic forks as-is due to it being so much larger when inflated.

I don't know exactly, but the R versions fit demo momentums with room to spare, and those fuckers are like 2.45" inflated on some rims. I would imagine all the new Ody forks share the same legs...

Don't bother. It's aluminium, it'll be fine.

On the topic of rawing parts...

How would I go about rawing the springfield brakes?

I assume the spring will need to come out, is that possible.

What else do I need to do before dipping these brakes in a load of chemicals? Or even if I should?

strip em down to just the arms & spray/soak in oven or drain cleaner. clean em real good with white spirits afterwards so they don't oxidize so easily from the left over chemicals.

Spring unhooks easily.

Avoid getting stuff on the pivot area, it will get in the crack between brass bush and arm and spoil the fit.

The arms are die-cast like a pedal body so you may not be able to achieve a good finish without a lot of polishing.

Cheers G,

I'm finally over ruining my shoes but I hate setting up and fiddling with brakes so they seem like the perfect option.

I'm just waiting on getting a new frame from Zoidy and some time to ride the bike to try them out.
