Spotlightin’: Destroy “Hella” 22mm Cranks.

Posted by: kris

Picked up some of these from Sean at Destroy last weekend while down in Redwood City. Been looking for some bombproof cranks for a minute now and the “Hella” Blasted 22mms to be the answer. Judging by the design and welds pretty sure I won’t have to worry about blowing out cranks for some time. Dig the ovalized design on these that keeps them as light as other 19mm cranks but still enough meat for that 22mm interface. Logos look pretty rad engraved on there too. Just waiting for a sprocket and I can get these rollin. A few more detail shots after the jump..

Destroy “Hella” Blasted Cranks.

Posted by: kris

Pretty stoked to be picking up a pair of these from Destroy this weekend. Pretty sure I’ve gone through something like 10 pairs of cranks in the past couple years so hopefully these will 22mm “Hella” jawns will take care of that. Oh yeah…and they’re splined. So fucking legit!

Father Tu: Stronglight.

Posted by: kris

This was still open on my computer so I guess I was in a hurry on friday haha. Anywho, you can always count on Father Tu to deliver some quality track stuff to the interwebs. These cranks used to look so weird to me back when I first started riding. Now i’d be stoked to have a set of these vintage Stronglight disks to put on a track frame. Dig ‘em.

Toro and the Heritage Parts.

Posted by: kris

Brain has been on a little search as of late for some special things. He came across an availability of some purdy vintage parts and has begun making them available to everyone. There’s some good stuff in there already like the Campy cranks and NOS Dura Ace bb and be on the lookout for stuff periodically. Especially if you’re looking for something rare or vintage for the track!

Eighthinch Cromo Sprocket and Fresh Drivetrain.

Posted by: kris

I recently got all my new Eighthinch bits up on my bike so I’ll be upping a few posts in the next few hours showing you what’s good from the dudes! Here’s the new proto sprocket that I’m so loving right now. No more steel insert in an aluminum sprocket. This beast is solid cromo and 48 splined to keep things stiff and running right. I also got my 12 tooth cog on there that they dished out a while back along with some raw 170mm cranks to keep it fresh. Stoked on having some more leverage and a way tighter gearing of 33×12. This is seriously the most solid drivetrain I’ve ever had without a shadow of a doubt. Look for these sprockets to be dropping here real soon.
