Re: 1991 Dyno Slammer...Need help...where to begin?

I bought a $4 dollar file and smoothed down the fork drop-outs as there were kind rough.  Perhaps, this wasn't the best way but it worked and here's the latest pic as of tonight. 

Next purchase is some 3pc cranks.  I know that some recommend Primo PowerBite cranks but I cannot find them in my budget range $120.  I can find polished HollowBite's on eBay all day long.  Are the HollowBites just as good as far as quality goes?

The only diff is ithink on the hollow bits you can't  machine them flat to look like power series cranks, as there hollow I don't think there's as much meat on the bone? But if you don't intend on doing that then they will be fine smile

Re: 1991 Dyno Slammer...Need help...where to begin?

I went ahead and purchased some polished Hollowbites the other day.  Looking forward to when this is complete.  I do have one question that I should know the answer to but I don't. 

Regarding the spider and or chainring disc, are they all the same?  I see all over eBay spiders for say and they say they are for "1 piece cranks".  I need to get a chain ring and spider purchased ASAP. 

Thanks,

Jeremy

You will need an adapter for almost any spider, power disk, or chainwheel you would use with those cranks.

If you bought the crankset new, it looks like it comes with the adapter. The spindle for those cranks is 22mm, and the opening in a spider / power disc / chainwheel for 1 piece cranks is 23.75mm

Re: 1991 Dyno Slammer...Need help...where to begin?

Randolph, thanks for the info this is what I needed to get cleared up.  Since I cannot find a 44t GT disc with the wings in good condition below might be a good alternative.  Thoughts/Opinions?

Anyone know what size of chain the below disc will take, 3/32 or 1/8"?

The Odyssey would probably look better but the only one I can fund is on eBay and it's from Malaysia. Plus they want $70 shipped for it.  Too rich for me.

Hold out for the wing logo. They come up all the time.

Also, I don't think you want a 3/32 chain on a freestyle bike.

I hear you all on holding out for the wings but I want to get this bike ready to ride ASAP
I will get the wing disc at some point but will get something else in the meantime.

Re: 1991 Dyno Slammer...Need help...where to begin?

Sorry to disappoint ya but the Oakley decals are gone.

*EDIT*

I am in talks with a seller who has an Odyssey 44T disc.  It says it's a 1/2 x 3/32 and now the question is do I just get a 3/32" freewheel to go with this or will a 1/8" work?  Sorry, I didn't search for the answer.

Re: 1991 Dyno Slammer...Need help...where to begin?

My Primo Hollowbites came in the mail yesterday and let's just say I'm pretty excited to almost be riding this thing again after 20+ years but even more excited to let my son ride it. That said I want to finish purchasing what I need ASAP.

What I still have left to purchase.

  • ACS Freewheel
  • Chain
  • Chain ring/sprocket/disc
  • Pedals

The Odyssey old school disc I was in talks with fell through so I can't count on getting it.  All the GT winged discs for sale are in rough shape and I don't want to wait for a NOS one to pop-up.  I hope to eventually pick on up but not now.  So my options are to get a newer style disc for the time being, such as the one in my earlier post above. 

Ripn'ride, thanks for the offer and I would certainly take a look at in once you get a pic up? 

All, what I need clarification on is the size of chain, chain ring/disc, and freewheel to get?  Will a 1/8" chain fit on a 3/32" freewheel and disc?  Just need these things cleared up.  I would like to purchase the final pieces today.

Gustafa, I'll take you up on that offer!

Re: 1991 Dyno Slammer...Need help...where to begin?

yea, it may or may not b, but I'd like to show it off either way big_smile I had this hoffman egg and got it from a friend.. long story short, somebody has it and he needs to swap it cuz i want/need it. Depends if the frame doc can resurrect my compe. BUT, i just got A Trek from the scrap thats in much better condition. momentary pending for now i guess

Yes, a 1/8 chain will fit on a 3/32 chainwheel/freewheel.
There will be side to side play of the chain on the teeth, but it isn't anything that will affect the overall functionality.
