LockedCog Crank Review

Kris just threw up a nice review on our 48 Spined Crankset yesterday. He’s been riding these since the prototype stages so if anyone has a say on their performance it’s Kris.

As many of you know i’ve been giving the Eighthinch freestyle goods a beating for some time now. This is the first of a few looks of what the freestyle parts have held up to. Ready go…

Check out the full review over at LockedCog.

Backpedal Blog Review

 

Phil, from newly launched Backpedal Blog, just put up a nice little review on our splined crankset. He’s been running them for quite a while now and they’ve been great for him. Check out the review here and be sure to keep on eye on Backpedal Blog.

Product Re-Stock – Cogs N’ Cranks

It’s been a long wait but 15t and 16t 1/8 cogs are finally back in stock. Along with the cogs we’ve also got 160mm black splined cranks back in stock. Quantities are limited on the cranks so get them while you can.

 

 

 

Product Rundown – Splined Chainring Adapter

Our splined chainring adapter is the perfect product if your looking for the strength of a 48 splined crank but would like to keep using your standard 130BCD chainring. Some stronger or heavier riders have a tendency to strip out square taper cranks. The limits of the square taper design leave them looking for alternatives. One option is moving to an outboard bearing cranks otherwise you can go with a splined system.

48 splined cranks are incredibly strong and can hold up to the back and forth torquing fixed gear riding puts on them. The chainrings made for them press on and fit using the same spline design. Since the 48 spline system was originally designed for BMX, chainring sizes can be pretty limited. Riders looking to run tooth counts in the 40’s may have trouble finding something. Our adapter mounts right on the spindle acting as a spider to mount any 130bcd chainring. Problem solved.

Check out our Chainring Adapter in our Store!

Mid Bottom Brackets Available

A lot of you have been waiting for these to come in. Now you can pick up our 48 spline cranks with a mid bottom bracket for no extra charge. They’ll also be available on their own if you just need the bottom bracket. Check out the bottom brackets here. Or pick one up with our splined cranks here.
