Here Jim Bauer talks you through Odyssey’s super affordable new Springfield brake. Pretty much every order we’re sending out pre-Christmas has at least one Springfield brake on-board.
So, if this isn’t the most popular hub of the moment I’d like to know what is. Jim Bauer explains why.

The GHOST PAD is a small, ultra-simple design that eliminates the frustrating conical assembly washers and toe-in adjustments required with traditional brake pads. It’s inner frame consists of a 6061-T6 aluminum extrusion for increased rigidity and manufacturing simplicity. Extrusion also provides a spanner (or wrench if you’re American…….not sure what Canadians say) flat area for extra grip during lock bolt tightening.
Dave from The Merged wrote a pretty cool little piece about the evolution of Odyssey forks for the relaunched Dig magazine. Have a read here.
