Good bike mainly for beginner riders

Rating:

The Good: No parts have broken or got messed up except for the stem.

The Bad: Weak stem, not the best brake system, no gussets anywhere on the frame.

Overall:

I bought this bike about a year ago in 2013 and started immediately changing out parts. I didn't like the brakes at all. I tried every way possible to get a stronger pull in response, but to no avail. I tried new pads, adjusting cables, but nothing worked. These are the Mission Halt brakes, but they don't bring you to a halt at all. Next, the stem. The Mission Converge stem kept slipping on me until one day I made them as tight as they could possibly be. They slipped once until this review about a month ago. Finally, there are NO gussets to provide the extra weld strength, which is a bummer because I love the dimensions of the frame. Today this bike in far from stock with almost a completely new setup except the frame. Thanks for reading!

Best handlebars I've ever owned!

Rating:

The Good: Pretty light, strong, nice decals on it.

The Bad: Nothing bad about them to me!

Overall:

Kriss Kyle is my all-time favorite rider, and once I saw these bars for sale, I knew I had to have one because he used to run them! Well, I regret nothing! These bars are perfect in dimensions for me. I am 5,6". I really recommend these bars with a topload if you are a taller rider though. This is a good product from BSD!

Don't know what to think about with this stem

Rating:

The Good: Strong, pretty light

The Bad: Will make your bars slip if the bolts aren't super tight. And boy do I mean SUPER TIGHT!

Overall:

It's an alright stem. Came stock with a complete. If you're a beginner rider who won't abuse the bike so much like jumping and high drops, then this is fine for you. However, if you are a guy who does all the street stuff like in the web edits these days, this is NOT the right stem for you.

Actually, Chase still runs his signature tires on trails. You can see it on a video called: Chase Hawk - Dawn to Dusk.
