I have the stock rear wheels from a united su2 supreme, and a kink transition (both 2012's) The Kink's axle is a 1-piece, standard type 14mm straight-bar; the united's is this 'male end-pieces that screw into female center axle' dealy, and it's not quite ... more »
Added a product review for 2012 United Supreme SU2 Bike 10/8/2015 10:06 AM
The Good: Everything
The Bad: RHD only complete, while the Supreme build kits come with RHD/LHD conversion option :(
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

I've got a couple seats and don't get me wrong, they're both great and I love them both, but my goal right now is to build my 'perfect' bike (currently riding 2 bikes), and that bike's seat is, ideally, a gorgeous, thickly cushioned, 1-piece (think that ... more »

What, like rubbing it by hand? You must be masochistic lol I couldn't even imagine!! I must've spent ~2hrs altogether with the drill's wire-wheel brush attachment sanding those f'ers down to get them raw, am still in the middle of making the finish homogeneous ... more »

Okay so i finally bit the bullet and rawed my crank arms. This was a massive PITA, let me tell you. Anyways, they're raw steel right now, although I still need to spend a little time with sandpaper getting the 'grain' or brushing to look just-right,

NOT best bikes, I don't care if it's a huffy lol, I only care about how the frame was refinished. I've got two matte black bmx's and I need to do something to 1, I'm kind of entertaining the betley technique, and a 'copper plated' gloss spray approach...

Dude those spacers there (or some home depot 'equivalent') are exactly what I'm thinking! And the problem is resolved now, hasn't moved since I overhauled the nuts/axle and sanded the dropouts, but I'm still angling to make it more secure than simply ... more »
Added reply in a thread DIY 'Dropout spacers' / chain tensioners/etc? 9/17/2015 1:34 PM
Am confused by that, it looks like your dropouts are wayy bigger than the axle - that must be the 'female' setup? I'll need to look at mine, I think it's just straight 14mm axle, although I've two bikes maybe one has something different.. worst case ... more »
