BB axle is one of the main components of the drive train. It determines how smooth & light the pedaling of a bike is. In OMO Model 1.0 we use high quality sealed BB axle. This is much different from the traditional BB axle & it has some huge advantages.
One of the biggest advantages of Alloy over steel is its anti rust qualities. In frame, these are tackled by double coating it with anti - rusting solutions & paint. But on rims, it is not possible due to technical constrains. Hence, we opted for Alloy in rims. But single wall Alloy is just not as strong as steel (and hence our argument against using alloy in frame), and rims need to be very strong to bear the rider's weight & shocks from the road.
So we decided to use Double Wall alloy rims in our Model 1.0. They are light weight, strong & look extremely stylish.
Also, we were the first one in India to paint these rims in House with world class Fluoro paints, that give OMO Model 1.0 their characteristic look.
Bushless chains has many advantages over the traditional chains. These make much lesser noise, have lesser weight & much longer life. Although a standard in the international, almost no Indian bicycle company uses bush less chain at this price point.
Earlier bicycles used to have cottered cranks. But new technology offers lighter weight, lesser maintenance & lower errors (which makes sure pedals always go straight & don't wobble). All OMO Bikes use export grade cotter less crank sets.
Big Ben is known for making world class saddles & pedals. We cut no corners & make sure our bikes' saddle offers maximum comfort to the riders. The saddle we use are PU saddles, which offer better life & comfort to other materials used in the market (like PVC, foam, leather etc.)
The above is just a small glimpse of what goes into making a cycle. We will keep updating our customers & riders as we develop better bikes. If you have any specific question around your bike or any bike in general, do write to us.
