Still interested in this bmx, but might hang on for next years if they make one!  :ph34r:

I just got a DK Opsis 2010. I put it together myself. I am only having a couple issues. On the back wheel there is a cone shaped piece of soft rubber on the left side of the hub. It is rubbing against the hub and making a squeaking sound. Is this part supposed to spin with the wheel or stay stationary? I'm guessing it should spin with the wheel. Is it an essential part(Can I take it off)? Or should I do something to keep it spinning? Also the freewheel seems to let the crank and chain go forward about an inch before it catches. I have heard that it is not a good freewheel, but can this be optimized at all?

Let me know if you've had this same problem or have any suggestions.

Thanks

Just got my opsis today! Not bad for 300 bucks! Didn't like the tires so I swapped them out
for some suelo tires. Can't wait to ride tomorrow. I am 35 and just getting back into flatland.

That rubber thing is not needed at all. mine was squeaking and slowing down my tire so I just took it off. It won't affect your bike in any way if you take it off I think it's a dust cover or something.

As for the hub that is easily fixable just look it up on google but the slack is not really bad for your hub.

Damn! The bike looks delicious with those tires on there.

Throw a white KHE Watanabe seat and some white pedals on there
and I'll need to change my pants.

Thanks man! I was pretty happy with the way it looked when I put the tires on! But, I was definitely already looking into the white pedals, probably just go with some twisted pcs, cause the stock pedals are not going to last very long from the looks of it!

this version is awesome, can't really imagine next years version can be much better/different. Order it from danscomp and use the promo code 41d5 and you'll
get the bike for 288.94 including shipping!
which is like a sore d**k ( you can't beat it)

I heard that sites credits were being jacked. Is that true by any chance?
