Nitrous 1 Piece Seat

Rating:

The Good: Low cost, looks nice, simple.

The Bad: Not as durable as a mounted seat, and the post could be longer.

Overall:

I've owned a few. I like them. My one broke, though.. Surprisingly. Where the seat is connected to the post, it snapped. It pissed me off VERY badly. I don't even know how I did it. But aside from that I did like the seat enough to purchase two more in the future for spare parts bikes. They hold up just fine and look nice. I think for some people, they might wish the post was longer (even if just a little bit) and the seat was more padded.. but then, how could they be manufactured for such an affordable price. Overall I like this seat even though it's a 1-piece.

The Good: Full chromoly frame, 25/9 is good for park, mine (idk if it was just the shop) came with wide bars, pedals have allen key axle.

The Bad: Unusual colors, design is too low, sealed bb and headset

Overall: My sister owned this bike (and I took care of it). To be honest I didn't like it. The only things it has going for it is the gear ratio.. And I'd like to say the frame, since it's full chrmo, but I highly dislike the frame. The problem with the frame is although it is strong it has a tiny ass headtube. This limits what kind of forks you will ever ride without cutting the steerer tube. That is a complete hassle. Mine came with wide (but low) bars. Pretty sure they're stock. I hate the front end of this bike. The bars are super wide, and not tall enough, especially for a bike with such a short steerer tube/headtube. It had unusual geometry, to be honest. I still have the cranks (got rid of everything else of course) and they seem strong, but they're heavier than other cranks that I own that I have also had no problems with. These cranks, unfortunately, I do have problems with. They keep coming loose, and I've tried the stock spindle, and a new Mission 8 spline spindle. Still the same problem. While I'm talking about the cranks, I have to say I did like the pedals for one reason, and that's that they have a 6mm allen wrench/hex wrench axle. The thing about the pedals is that they're weak though. They're the same mold as United Value PC pedals. I also disliked the decals that came on it, and the seat was really unusually flat, for a plastic pivotal seat. Never had problems with hubs or anything. I just hate how it's priced so high compared to the shitty Nitrous Cobra my mom got me around the same time, and the Cobra had none of these problems, and it's a fucking nitrous. Unsealed american bb, unsealed headset, etc, you name it, it had something negative about it. And I had no issues with it, and for practically a third of the price. Seriously my suggestion is spend your money on something more 'normal' or 'compatable' and save your money by doing so. It's a nice bike if you somehow get stuck with it, but I don't recommend it over something else.

Shadow Slim Seat

Rating:

The Good: Stitched pattern is sexy. Lightweight (who cares really though) and not easily damaged. Holds up like a boss

The Bad: Could possibly use more padding but that's a personal thing

Overall:

I had one that was treated like shit before I owned it ha. It was attacked with a power sander and the stitching and all the fabric was still intact (I think it was stolen from someone thats why). It looks nice and although it's very flat/slim, it's wide and comfortable if you don't sit all the time. I'd recommend buying it if you can still get your hands on one. I miss mine.
