Sunday! 2016 complete are shipping to all good BMX shops as we speak. Every little details is taken care. Not least on this 16″ model for the little guys……..sure beats a scooter or mini BMX.
A banging round up of the second day of practice from RIDE BMX. Featuring IMG brand riders Matt Roe (on the thumbnail), Chase Hawk, Gary Young and Tom Dugan.
The qualifying is tonight at 7pm (UK time). I’m not sure of the exact URL for the feed but check here. Hopefully Rooftop and DMC have their suitably dry commentary hats on again this year!! Always a good watch.
So you thought the Odyssey Clutch was much like the other freecoaster hubs?
Mike talks about what parts he chose for his set up and why. In between the tech talk there's some ridiculously tech riding and an ender that'll blow your mind.

The Clutch Hub is based off the traditional coaster hub design, but throws away all of the problematic elements and only keeps the parts that work. Odyssey beefed up the axle, the bearings and the mechanism itself so riders can finally go backwards without spending all of their time fixing the hub. Includes a plastic hub guard and external slack adjustment via the sliding collar.
The hub includes a female axle with a 14mm non-drive side axle bolt and 3/8″ drive side bolt with built-in 14mm adapter. This configuration is lighter and stronger than a 14mm solid male axle. The 3/8″ drive side bolt provides room for an ultra-long-lasting bearing system in the driver – one of the weakest points on traditional hubs. The 14mm non-drive side bolt is incredibly strong and allows for a larger bore in the axle. Team tested and proven. Patents Pending.
Worth noting, Gary Young (who rides everything) conveniently adjusts his slack on the fly depending on if he is riding street or park, without having to take his wheel off.
