I once had this same model DK Signal. I donated the frame, but kept the forks. They are pretty solid.

Parts and Bikes / Re: Cranks experience in opposite placement

The pedals, that can be taken apart, to swap on another side is kind of weird. I canít imagine, what makes it different, if you swap those.  ::)
Left and right pedals are threaded differently, so they effectively tighten on the cranks as you pedal. Running them the wrong way round means they will eventually get loose. Not a big deal for flatland really.


You should probably ask the guys at Ares if your cranks are compatible with spline drive, they did make the Illblend cranks and Solid spline sprocket to work together.

Rider Hookup / Any riders in Copenhagen Denmark?
« Last post by mr.cool on March 17, 2019, 12:08:53 PM »
I'm taking a little trip out to visit a friend between the 28 March - 2 April and bringing my bike with me.
In reality l will probably only have a day to ride. I'm not an amazing rider, so no need to dial in your best combo's, would be nice to just jam with people.

Thanks for your reply Steve.
My friend had one before, which he runs right drive cranks but using a lhd cassette. He does street but I was not able to ask, how he did his. But it was ok though.

I really like to run the Profile splined sprocket with my Phaser cranks. Unfortunately, the right crank is bonded together and splined drives are not possible, unless installing it on the left side. But I want to run RHD.

I had to run a set the wrong way round for a while as I use a left hand drive hub, and only the right crank was threaded for a sprocket bolt.

In theory your pedals will eventually unthread themselves, but a local lad told me what he did was take his pedals apart and swap the axles over. It was never a problem for me though.

Using spline drive should be no problem if your axle is designed for it? (i.e. you won't be able to get a spline drive sprocket on the bonded side of 2 piece cranks) If in any doubt use the same brand sprocket and cranks.

Parts and Bikes / Cranks experience in opposite placement

Anyone here have tried, the cranks that has been installed in opposite way?


Of course it should not be normal but I just  want to install a splined drive sprocket to my Arestic Phaser cranks.


If so, how was your experience?


Thanks in advance.

I really don't like slope!I am living in Germany and all public areas have either slope or are paved in order to make them dry faster. So good surface means you have slope (I think it is typically 3 % which is a lot to ride on) or you have small edges at the joints. In some cases, if the pavement was done well, the edges at the joints are ok and then you have a good option. But asphalt or concrete always comes with slope.In the town I lived until December I had a paved spot with big paving stones, so there were not so many joints and the result was good and without any slope.Now in the new town I only found spot with slope.After getting used to no slope I found 3 % (estimated) almost impossible.My search still goes on...

Yea I've checked all local parks including tennis, basketball and skateparks. Unfortunately everything I've found is unrideable for one reason or another like too steep of slope or I get kicked out. I haven't given up hope though, I'm going out again today to go looking some more.

No parking garages near me. There are some way on the other side of town but it's quite far, I'm hoping to find something closer but if I can't then I'll check them out.

I've pretty much excepted that any spot I will find will have a slope. I actually prefer there to be a gradual one, you get used to always having one and start to rely on it. It's rare to find perfectly flat surfaces, they always intentionally use a slope for drainage I imagine?
