I forgot to mention before, that one of the neat bits of research here for lovers of one piece cranks, is that Sodbuster found THUN opc's were an ashtabula product.

I'm sure I'm not the only guy saving important BMX reference documentation here.
A is for Ashtabula. A is for an awesome job too, Brian! Thanks for the hard work, time and share... same for you Mr. Brothers, your hard work isn't going unnoticed either.

this will be going to the University of BMX section of the site a little later. Just a general notice.

Thanks again, Professor Sodbuster, for this highly venerable research.

Hey Steve I think sometime after the June show when things calm down we should get together and add the research links to this. Then move it to the U of BMX section like we discussed.

It was in the U of BMX section for a while... but I took it out so some non-site supporters could read it, take notes, and then go to other sites and drop science like they'd done the research themselves. :wink:


Cite the scholar, Sodbuster, when you bite his research!

Really awesome. I was walking through a metal scrapyard, picked a set of cranks off the ground and started rattling off tidbits from your article for the owner and bystanders. He was dumbfounded.

It was great!

Printed it for my records.

Awesome!

This is such a cool read. Anyone that hasn't read this already really should.

FYI I had a frame blasted (mid school Redline) and they coated it in a Zinc finish that looks exactly the same only it was an olive green colour? Was this the same thing?
It had the "sparkles" in the finish too. I was wondering if they could make it black?

I love this article for the great info and because it blows a few myths out of the water with real knowledge.
