What was wrong with normal cranks and a normal bash guard? Never saw the point of the integrated stuff, you're just getting rid of 95% of your options.

Looks good, light, cool as shit cos it's back street trials stuff integrated with mainstream mountain bike stuff? I'm all for it... if it works.

All bash guards are light lol. If that whole hollow machined out breaky bit was solid...it would still be light, and it wouldn't break.

When i bought it at first I didnt expect such problems and after thinking about options I realised these cranks wont work with anything else actually :D. I dont want to buy new cranks just because of it but seems I have to. 

 

Also, I saw Ross on his bike is using spider for gxp cranks if I am right. So maybe I should try that.

Nice man! How did you get the chain perfectly tight with no tensioner? I'm just about to change my rear hub to a hope pro 4 trials. Quite want to ditch my tensioner if possible.

It was not an old chain and I used half link, also added some plastic in dropouts because there was 1 or 2 mm free space. For now Im using trialtech tensioner because chain stretched a bit.

I have a feeling it was more to do with ramming it into stuff than the pedal kick :rolleyes:

Maybe some info about what Inspired have offered to help you out would be a good addition to this thread?

Decided to upgrade with hussefelt cranks, inspired pedals and a pair of new tyres. Weights around 11.3 kg.

Which part of the frame is that? Do you do lots of moves where the brake calliper is pulled away from the frame? As in, landing fakie with the brake on...

Fakies with brake on didn't happen only tiretaps or front ups. Its downtube. Now sending for inspired guys to test it.received_1652353378193120.thumb.jpeg.bde79a1901b036f431df0183395b6c6d.jpeg

Why wouldn't they? Testing their parts to destruction leading to improvements in design.

Just ask @Paperclip :lol:

well, they give 6 months warranty in case something goes wrong, but if you gonna smash it hard warranty will not cover it. If you are really scared of them but you want hex anyways just upgrade those cranks or buy a x3 sram spider with sprocket and bashring and replace inspired integrated bashring.

I'm struggling to see the crack in that frame! How the hell did you spot it? Have you got xray vision?

:DD, paint cracked somehow in the beginning. Removed and there was a micro crack 

as I saw. Sent it to Inspired for a test. Frame was fine, they said sometimes paint can crack. Holding strong since then.

Looks sweet. Does it feels different from old (2011-2013) 4play geo?

I tried the old one but it had 1 gen inspired riser bars. Fourplay with arcade bars feels much better thats what I can say ;D
