The bolt on my fly v3 cranks keep working its way loose. What can I do?

Sprocket bolt or the main end bolt?

If sprocket bolt it may mean that you have a wonky sprocket.

If end bolt it may mean the BB spacer tube is too short or there is movement/wear in the splines.

Main end spacer. It's a fly bb. Everything is set up as it should be. And they have very little use. I'll check again today

What's the difference between the old (cajalla or what ever) and new (rampera) Ruben tyres other than the colour options and sizes?

The ramperas have a little deeper thread than the callejeras but not as deep as the campilleras (dirt version)

Not a fan of the current 2.35 Flys. Bring back the folding 2.25 option.

It's piss easy. But get the guide from gsport and follow it. Hardest bit is the clip but if you have finger nails it comes off easy as pie

anyone out there uses s&m race xlt fork for street and trails or think they're recommended as well? I weigh 155lbs and don't huck-to-flat, only smoother trannies. I'm looking for a pair of forks that don't require a compression bolt, only need to use with a star fangled nut. cheers.

That's a very bizarre stipulation, is there a reason for it? Star nuts tend to be pretty crap.
Pretty sure the S&M forks all use a built in compression bolt too.

thanks guys, forgot to mention that I ride pegless.
haha, I ride a frame with a shorter headtube and need to cut the column short and thought normal forks are threaded at where I want to cut.

How short is the headtube?

The Odyssey (and Sunday) forks have the threaded section recessed and the compression bolt has a cut line so you can cut up to 20mm off without a problem (which is a lot). Not sure about other brands.
Even if you end up cutting into the threads on an Odyssey fork you could still retro fit a star nut system.

Hope this helps
