Odyssey race fork.

Is it strong enough for light street use? i'm talking about the camo one, and does it come with 14mm dropouts?

The fork comes in 3/8th dropouts but can handle street. You are not supposed to use pegs with that fork according to odyssey, but it holds up fine. If you break it and they know you were not using it for racing, they will send you a dirt fork.

The dirt comes in 14mm, so if you have 14mm axles and weren't planning on buying a new hub maybe you should just get that.

Those G-sport 3/8th hubs should be pretty strong, though.

I dont use pegs, real men run on their nuts.

And i'll have to check the dirt fork out to, it's between this and the Sunday! Night fork.

Pegless grinds are like 20x harder than peg ones. I don't know how people manage to stay on, and actually slide anywhere. Maybe on slippery rails or metal ledges it's easier.

I find that pedal grinds are actually easier, and take less effort. It amazes me how Eddie throws his barspins so good with such a low seat.

Those green spikes on Eddie's bike are pretty sick too.

Try doing pedal stalls on stuff on peg side.
