So, so rad.


The Good: Great feature and perfect rise for the taller guys like me. Weight is good also and the price.

The Bad: Nothing so far.


Best stem I've ever ridden, perfect geometry for the 6 ft+ rider. Rocking mine with some Vocal Local XL's with a height of 8.75 and my front end feels perfect. The long reach gives me loads of room for turndowns and inverts. All round a fantastic stem that suits all styles of riding.

Sublime perfection.


The Good: Everything about these cranks is great. Perfect length for going quick (175mm), perfect weight, perfect shape, really strong and good for crankarm grinds (when I rarely do them).

The Bad: Sometimes my left side pedal comes loose, but apart from that...


Real great cranks, I have the bossless ones paired up with a Mutiny 28t sprocket, really strong and light like I said, and if you can get them for the right price, you literally can't go wrong with them.

What's not to like?


The Good: The shape, size, weight, colour, feel,smell and taste of this lever is just perfect.

The Bad: Absolutely now't.


Had four of these bad boys over the years, though my latest one is the first I put a custom bend in, which makes it the perfect lever for me personally, not that it wasn't anyway. If you run brakes, you run a Tech-77, it's that simple. ;)

Real good pedals


The Good: Grip Aesthetics Price Weight

The Bad: Nothing at the moment


Replaced my Odyssey Twisted's with these, not really knowing what to expect. So far they have been real grippy riding park and street, although they are still to prove themselves at the trails. Overall, great pedals that I would wholeheartedly recommend.

Good but bad


The Good: Really comfy design, perfect for grabbing back on after no-handers, doesn't get in the way. Affordable as well.

The Bad: Had really and lever wobble and the bolt to tighten the lever up to stop that rounded out.


Real good lever, i would definitely get another one as long as doesn't wobble.

Fantastic hub


The Good: Good design, good colour range, good bearings, strong axle, rolls forever.

The Bad: Axles bent a bit on mine from me slamming down my smith's


Fucking sick hub, been riding it for a year now and no problems, still rolls like new.

Alright I guess...


The Good: Wide platform, light and cheap

The Bad: No grip, awful bearings, wear down quickly.


My mate was running these before me and we were riding along one day and the pedal body flew off, reluctantly I bought a set and the haven't shaken themselves to bits yet but they are worn, I guess I would recommend them to a pegless rider who just likes to flow around the bowl, but certainly not a 4 peg street dog.

Supreme Su2 x Etnies


The Good: Good, decent parts for a complete, rides nice and solid.

The Bad: The cranks were a bit cheap looking before i replaced them with d20 tubulars and the brake was shit before replaced with an all odyssey setup


Good value for the money and once set-up and dialed in rides a fucking treat!

Added a product review for United Beacon Frame 7/8/2013 1:38 PM

Best frame


The Good: - Short back end - Good weight - Very responsive geometry - Good looking

The Bad: - Built in seat post (has cut-line for removal though)


Best frame I've ridden, never had any issues with it, once the the built in post is gone its top notch, so light and responsive, whips and bars so easily.
