Tired of your cranks moving mid trick? All of our new #RADIOMTB Slopestyle / Dirt frames now feature a hassle free integrated crank stopper bolt which allows you to pre-set the friction on the BB center sleeve. Goodbye chopping up tires and tubes or destroying your BB to keep your cranks straight.

One of many rider designed upgrades available now on the new Radio Bikes Slopestyle/Dirt Frames which just landed with dealers worldwide

interesting... i currently use a plastic BB (from hommage japan) which helps to decrease spinning.... or the grip flange trick works too.

I would hate to use this method actually seeing as how the bolt would dig into your spindle (for those of us who don't use the tube spacer)

Cut off a grip flange and place it between your drive side BB washer/spacer and back of sprocket over the spindle. Tighten the drive side crank arm down which will mash the grip flange and cause friction when the crank rotates.  Keep an eye on your chain line. Cheapest and most reliable method Iíve used.
