A quick glance shows an animal sticker on a bike with an animal tire, but why would that even matter is it a faux pas to represent a company you respect even if you don't have the parts? I currently have a sticker on my bike that came with a part I bought ... more »

Ok so I wanted to swap the bolt because I really liked that nigel seat, but it seems it's impossible to remove the bolt w/o cutting plastic and irreversibly damaging the seat (if anyone knows how to get pivotal bolts in/out of an Animal Nigel Sylvester

Perhaps. We'll see if the next one strips right out, then it's obviously my fault! I'd been using a 6mm allen key, I have to imagine that was proper but maybe it wasn't... dunno or care, but it's just sooo stripped from an allen key that's held vertically ... more »

Thanks for the tips, I think I'll try home depot first and if no luck (common problem, surprisingly) then will order from dan's. Can't say that I think very highly of Animal after this, it's the only animal product i've had and for it to be that stripped ... more »

Not being an ass but are ignorant/presumtive, as I'm on the shorter side and have a 6-pack lol, I'm definitely one of the lighter people posting in this thread (I buy underpants in Children's size large for chrissakes) so it's not my weight. That said, ... more »

Added a product review for 2012 United Supreme SU2 Bike 10/8/2015 10:06 AM

Best Bike I've Ever Owned!!

Rating:

The Good: Everything

The Bad: RHD only complete, while the Supreme build kits come with RHD/LHD conversion option :(

Overall:

​Well, under the specs header you can see what this bike has, IMO it's got any and everything I'd want in a complete - full chromoly everything; great angles/geometry; lightweight @24.0lbs stock; clean/understated aesthetics, it truly is an awesome bike as a complete.

Now, mine's heavily modified, but most modifications were of a minor nature ie things like handlebars, seat etc - I still ride the SU2 frame/fork, headset/bb*, and the stock wheels (hell I'm still riding the stock tire up front!  Recently put a racing tire on the back to save weight / go faster, along with other things my bike's now 23.2lbs and will be under 23 when I do final swaps today :D )

Would recommend this bike all day long, but now it seems you gotta get the martinez bike for a good united, I've seen newer year models of the Supreme that had high-tens steel in them..I thought this was gonna stay their flagship but apparently not!

(*I'm running different crank-arms than stock, I had to put some extra Kink arms on after snapping the United's crank's pinch-bolt, sadly they use a
