Re: Beware of PMC crank rip off's like TheHawkf20

As I have stated plenty of times in the past.There should be a sticky on members that others should not be dealing with,if they do,they will be on their own.

Re: Beware of PMC crank rip off's like TheHawkf20

I find it in particular hilarious, when he makes it all drama like the parts he received are wrong/defect/unusable while at the same time he is already using the same cranks with an extra spacer on one of his other bikes like I showed above...so he could've been just quiet about it and just space it again, but no he clearly wanted to intentionally put pressure on the seller in order to scam the price way down after the sale.

This is the best thing about this community,alot of folks are looking out for each other so others would not get scammed by people like the OP.

The cranks are a good incentive to lose wight and get back into shape.

Re: Beware of PMC crank rip off's like TheHawkf20

I haven't been collecting in quite a few years. The only reason I found out about this thread was from a good friend of mine who's still collecting. He sent me a text with a link. I would have never known about it if it wasn't for him. Good job to those of you who are keeping it going and legit!! Keep you eyes out on the threads and pass on shittalkers to those that aren't as frequent in the threado. I have several friends still collecting the look out for me.. Thank you to them. It's assholes like this who feel they shouldn't have to pay what something is worth. I've run into others like this guy and if I could remember his name I would post it here too. I gave him a screaming deal on a set of Kastan cranks, and he turned around and sold them for more the next week. I text him and told him never to ask me for any parts or anything again.

Here's my Kastan Squareback with PMC cranks, high flange hubs, and seat post clamp. These pieces were out of that same stock purchase. I used them on my bikes and saw that my feedback has 2 positives about PMC purchases. I really hope this doesn't effect the prices on PMC. This is some great out of the ordinary stuff and should be priced as such.

NOS is NOT a condition description. Something being NOS has NOTHING to do with the condition of the bike/part.

Beautiful bike, cheap pedals. If the stem and seat rails were purple to match..... hmm big_smile

I still need to ride most days, when I’m ridin I ain’t thinking, just rollin.   
Just the way I like it.  That little escape from stressful thing that go along with just being a human helping me reset.
That’s probably why I have a set.  Hahaha
To be honest I was thinking of picking them up myself, if only the anno was a bit better I probably would of grabbed them as I already have a nice purple pmc spider.

Re: Beware of PMC crank rip off's like TheHawkf20

Can anyone post a pic of part# 2, the spacer for the spider?
I think this part is needed for PMC sprockets as well.

Can you also measure how thick it is?
I need to make/get something for my PMC crank and sprocket setup.

Thanks!

So, wait ...  Isn't it just that the spindle is longer than the BMX bottom bracket is wide?  So they need spacers to make up for the extra long spindle?  I don't think that's what defective means.  Seems like a bit of overreaction to blast someone like this.  As long as he sends you the spacers now how is there still an issue?

A good healthy weight for a 6 foot male is 140 to 180lb.
Don’t think they were designed for heavy riders. If your racing you should have a healthy lifestyle if you want to be competitive anyways.

For a 6 foot male I'd figure that number would probably be bumped up 15-20 on each side of the range. I couldn't even imagine 140 lbs at 6 ft. I felt like a walking skeleton almost at 6ft and 160. I have now surpassed that by a bit more than I'd like to admit. haha.

but how is a shorter crank not as strong? there is more to it than simply the length of the arm because that just isn't possible
