that is the ****in worstOriginally Posted by -=£em in Pa=-
my head hurts thinking about setting that chain tension.
Culture? Art? Making a difference? Hey, go **** yourself. We're too busy drinking, doing drugs, trying to **** random people and you want us to make money on top of all that? Really?
Well, ****. I don't give a ****.
interestingly enough that paint option is called "anal sex." they also offer have a flesh colored tube with white spray detail dubbed "MTBukakke"
dual drive is the worst idea ever ever ever
someone please explain to me how left drive SS works.
someone please explain to me why bike companies name their products things such as "finger bangers" "anal sex" "bukakke" "strip bars" etc, especially bmx companies
Because 16-19 year old kids will buy them.Originally Posted by seasponge
What's funny is maybe now about a year ago a thread was made with a bike like that. He claimed it was inefficient in comparison to single drive. The noobs are catching on later-- and they're only going to find that it sucks.

Dual Drive is ********. 100+years of the saftey bicycle has proven that one chain is enough.
On their site they claim there is a torque advantage with dual drive. Sounds like BS to me.
Sucks to your ass-mar!
thats a typo.. they actually meant "dork advantage"Originally Posted by Moximitre
OOhh.. ok, now it makes sense.Originally Posted by sloppy robot

you know what would be deck? Triple drive! A singlespeed with triple cranks, and 3 cogs on the rear cassette. All at the same ratio. It would have all the weight of a geared system with none of the mechanical advantage. Perfect chainline would be offset by 3 times the mechanical friction, and it would look SO BADASS!
you mean, 3 cogs and triples on each side.
double side drive with 3 chains on each side! 6 times the fun!
LH threading on the left side of the hub, there are a few BMX hubs that have both left and right side threading for LH freewheels. I'm guessing they took one of these and respaced it.Originally Posted by AfterThisNap
For those who are hating on the design, there is a photo somewhere on the internet of a bike with 3 chains, all on the right side. Three chainrings, all the same size, and three cogs on a normal MTB hub with spacers.

Outside the arctic circle, though, it seems a bit overkill.
It would be cool to get a regular mountain triple - say, 24, 34, 44 teeth on the chainrings - and then have three different cogs on the back that make the gear ratios the same. Did I say cool? I meant dorky.
Ah that's all crap. It's still rear wheel drive. I want a mtb w/ two wheel drive. That'd be useful. I mean useless.
