what do you think of these bc plates?

I would like to know what you think of these 6061-T6 extruded aluminum bc plates.

Here are more pictures: http://www.unicyclist.com/gallery/?g2_itemId=220153

They look pretty good, but how far do they drop down from the axel, It doesn’t look that far. other than that, they look good, esspecially because they are extruded, If I am not misatken, that is quite a bit stronger than they bending method.

They look pretty sweet, about as good as bedford plates.

From the center of the hole down to the surface you stand on is 2 5/8".
And yes extruded is a lot stronger than the bending method.

Just wait…Evan will be here anyminute to bash these plates and promote his…As for me i like em, are they drilled for 14mm or 3/8? If i had a BC id use em.

how thick/heavy are they?

they look beautyous

how do they hold up?
and how much do they weigh?

Nah man these look good, Im not a fan of long plates, they make me fall on my ass, But other wise they look like a slightly stronger design than Bed’s.

The horisontal dimension just below the axle is longer that bedfords, thats a good thing, it makes it stronger.

nicee =]

I can drill a 3/8" or 14mm hole. The pic shows a 14mm drilled hole.

They are .25" thick and both plates together are 2 pounds 4 ounces. (2.25 pounds). They hold up very well.

I appreciate your input.

Nice plates.
Now you must get some griptape and put it on.
