The Eighth Inch Butcher Jan 28, 2011


This just in from Noah at Eighth Inch:

“It’s finally time! Our shipment of Butcher frames are officially on their way and we will start taking pre-orders today. All the frames include a seatpost, seatclamp, integrated headset and mid bottom bracket. Otherwise if you want an all new ride we will be selling them as complete bikes too. Choose your options and have it built to your specifications. We teamed up with Fyxation on this and we’re outfitting all the complete builds with the new 35c Session 700’s. Like the 700×28 sessions, these tires feel a little bigger than 35c and have the quality you would expect out of a Fyxation tire. Below are some pictures and specs. Check out the Butcher page on our site and click the BUY ONLINE tab to place your pre-order.

Orders will start shipping the week of February 21.”

    Is there a way to use track-style cranks with a mid BB? I dont really understand the mid-bb thing. Wouldn’t any external bearing crank work?

  • streettrash

    The mid BB is for BMX cranks. There are no threads to loosen up so a lot of people prefer it to a standard threaded BB. Also the bearings are a lot larger and more durable.

    To my knowledge there is no way to run anything but a BMX setup with a mid BB, but I have never really looked in to it at all. I guess if there track cranks that have either a 19mm or 22mm spindle it would theoretically work.

    It’s for the kids.
