yea its a pipecleaner, keeps the hubs sparkling! Yea I was debating waiting for deity cranks from my lbs, but they had wombolts in stock. I got thinking about it, and i decided to go with wombolts. Even if the shop had both in stock, I think i woulda took the wombolts anyways, I really dig their company, and the new design, plus i got a good deal.

Yeah Wombolts are killer cranks. I prefer the Primo Hollowbites more because the Wombolts tend to loosen up a bit too much, or at least mine did

Is the new Gold Label 2 good? How does it feel like? I'm looking for a 100mm fork, light durable and stiff. DJs are too heavy and I don't have any info about Argyles yet.
Btw, even if you buy the 100mm version you're able to lower the fork to 80mm yourself right?

Not anymore or so I've heard. The argyles are nice, although I heard about some getting stuck down(air version). You can't really go wrong with either choice, although I don't like manitou too much.

The 80mm version is a bit more expensive I think $50 or so. It seems like "tuned" coz stock version is 100mm... Because of this I think it might be possible, but I dunno.
Well I think I don't want an air-based fork. I got interested in Gold Label 2 coz cummings said it's good fork and I heard quite good rumors about it. On the other hand I heard that Manitou has it's problems. It's hard to make up my mind :madman:

wow, I take a leave from the site for a bit, then shift blows up!
Nice ride cummings, came together very smoothly!

and Vinny, you had wombolts and they loosened up on you? seriously? are you thinking 41thermals? the wombolts are supposed to hold up tighter then other 3pc'ers with the 6side wedge and only 1 bolt..



heyhey 2000th post for me... damn.

:lol:

I'm a tool sorry. Its been a while since I had the Odyessy cranks, so I saw Odyessy and thought oh they loosen up like a b!tch :madman:

It was the 41 thermals that loosened up like no other, despite my love for Odyessy I sold them quick and got Primo Hollowbites.
