Damn, that's some nice looking tape!

Scrod - what say you about the Eighth Inch crankset that you currently have on sale? About on par with the stock cranks found on BD bikes, or a bit better?

Scrodzilla 09-06-12 06:32 AM

I've never used it. It looks to be the same overall as the 130bcd Eighth Inch crank, which Angie has used and I've always thought is good for the price.

Xgecko 09-06-12 10:03 AM

I used the 1/8" 130BCD crank and it's a lot nicer aesthetically and it was a hair rounder than the OEM crank that came on my BD bike. That said I eventually traded them for a WI freewheel when I switched to a set of Cooks RSR's I dug out my of the parts bin

bfloyd6969 09-06-12 12:34 PM

Thanks for the info, guys. The price sure seems right!

scrod, just placed an order and left you a note about the dimension risers and chainring bolts we talked about

realized after i hit pay i probably shouldve had you send me the invoice first, not sure if this would create a problem

let me know if i screwed up

scrod, i am looking at the deluxe Andel and BB crankset http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...-crankset-w-bb

Can I assume this combo gives a 42mm chainline?

Thanks!

Scrodzilla 09-06-12 03:17 PM

I've never actually measured but the bikes I've put them on have had straight chainlines.

scrod, thanks.

I realize the Deluxe set comes with a 48t chainring. I'm now looking at the 46t standard crankset with http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...track-crankset. I have a question about the silver color. Does it come with a grey chainring? I can't quite make it out on the site.

Scrodzilla 09-06-12 06:01 PM

No, it's all silver. The entire crankset is available in grey though.

Yo scrod, not to pester you, but everything got shipped, right?

haven't got a #.

Scrodzilla 09-07-12 12:04 PM

I could have sworn your stuff already went out but here it is, sitting here in the corner of the shop doing this:

Nagrom_ 09-07-12 12:23 PM

Thanks. I'll probably end up with silver. I wanted to combine orders with the V2/Twisted Pedals combo http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...twisted-pedals. When are you getting these back in stock?

Scrodzilla 09-07-12 02:42 PM

Probably not for a few weeks. The batch we just made sold out much quicker than we had anticipated.

Basilios 09-08-12 04:15 AM

It was a total surprise to me. It's a nice personal touch tho.

you are not the only one, the last animal Scrod sent me my cat got a hold of and stahed away so this time when I got the crab I safety wired it to my stem before I put the parts on my bike

Mumonkan 09-08-12 10:43 AM

My good man, do you think my stuff would go out before sunday?
I never seem to get the tracking numbers from your mailman

Scrodzilla 09-08-12 11:26 AM

What did you order? We don't have a Saturday mail pickup so if it didn't go out Friday, it will go out Monday morning.

Mumonkan 09-08-12 01:01 PM

I was the guy that added the dimension risers and chainring bolts to a bunch of other crap
rhm 02s, deda stem, mash tape, etc.
ordered thurs

Scrodzilla 09-08-12 01:05 PM

It will be in the mail Monday.
