I dont know you tell us... laziness? Greasing them is good practice.

Not trying to stir anything up here I'm just curious - why don't Odyssey/Gsport hubs come with greased bearing seats?

They should be lightly oiled in the factory with a heavy weight oil. Essentially the protective oil that the bearings come in. This should be better than grease for steel on aluminium because there is no water in the oil that could facilitate electro galvanic corrosion... I somewhat assumed that the OP related to frame bearings; BB and headset...

I thought it was a couch thing, not that bpn guy... Figures. I've always greased them anyway, at least now I don't have to feel guilty about it  ::)

Because outside of Odyssey, product development has gotten stale and as the adult bmx forum we want some new, interesting parts to ride.

Quick question: What bars are these?
http://blog.defgrip.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Defgrip_Self_Cruising02.jpg
My best guess is the t1 salt lake bars, but I wasn't quite sure.
Thanks in advance!

So I have the opportunity to buy a Model C Ex (the white one) for 125 next weekend, should I do it? Bearing in mind I recently sold my 20" trail scout as I couldn't get used to the sketchy feel coming from 26"?

Edit - never mind, car brake pads now need replacing and thus taking up precious money. Cunt.

Find the money, that is a deal and you will love it... doing the pads yourself is easy so if you were going to give it to a garage to do you can save some cash there.

FUCK BRAKE PADS! Buy the Model C NOW. That's a killer deal and you'll love it. From a fellow MTB guy, you absolutely have to get that bike.

Is there a resource online for finding which sprocket/driver/chain combinations work for slamming certain chainstay lengths?
