I bent the **** out of my crank yesterday/frame recomendation
Either that or the hole it goes in got ovaled out. Its still rideable, but it squeaks really bad, and you can move the entire sprocket/crank setup up and down and side to side. I guess now would be a good time to get a good strong frame
What would you folks recomend for me.
Heres the stats:
heigth- 6' 5"
weight- under 170
Im looking to build my own, ive already searched ebay and craigslist and didnt find anything i like.
I need a frame that can with stand major thrashing and beatings(i ride pretty rough) and hopefully i can get one for under a hundred bucks. i've got everything else, all i need is a frame and crank/sprocket setup.
well, im not really huge into bmx so i dunno what the high end brands are (unless its a Mirra but thats only cuz the LBS i deal with sells them)
why not just pick up a Diamondback or Ironhorse.
they usually run around 160-260 from what i see pending on the model.
i know the FAQ says under200$ = crap, but if u want something to get ya movin quick and wont break ur heart if u thrash it i guess thats the ticket, plus i guess if u wanted to you could upgrade SOME of the parts and move em to a new frame if you so wish
I think i mainly bent the crank, When i pedal and the left side pedal gets all the way up it squeaks. I can also move the entire crank/sprocket setup in a circular motion by hand(not like when your pedaling, like I can move it up and down with out pedaling.
I think i mostly need stronger components, im pretty rough on my bike.
OK, so if it is an unsealed bb, then you simply need to have the bearings and cages replaced.
They are only about $2 each. And you probably need them for an unsealed american bb.
If you think you can do it yourself, i will post the other 2 pictures that go with the picture above on how to replace them.
If not, Just take it by a shop and have them do it.
