Decent Rims!

Rating:

The Good: Will take most larger drops & jumps on dirt and concrete parks, nice paint.

The Bad: Slight bends after continuous use.

Overall:

These rims came stock on my bike, but I'm still using till this day. It's been about a year of running them, and I have come across 2 minor problems. One is that the rim can bend the slightest bit. Found that out after doing lots of 180's. But after truing them, it was back to normal with nothing feeling awkward. The second minor problem was the nipples getting lose. Just make sure they stay tight every few weeks if you're an avid rider. To sum stuff up, it's a good rim and I definitely recommend it to you all!

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.

Hey, everyone! It's about time I'd get new tires, and I was looking into the Chase Hawk signature line of tires. I enjoy riding fast and smooth and carving stuff to go even faster. I wanted the P-Lyte Black Wall version, but I was concerned about the ... more »

Thank you for all the help! I just took my bike to our local shop and I am installing a Stolen Satellite Gyro on. Thank you guys :D

Added reply in a thread Help Please! What Gyro Should I Buy? 1/5/2014 4:06 PM

Unfortunately not, all gyros and detangler plates MUST be secured to the frame using tab mounts.

Will all tabs fit a frame?

Thank you for all the replies! But the Odyssey G3 comes with EVERYTHING you need? So if I were to put this kit on http://www.kinkbmx.com/bikes/2013-bikes/whip/ then it would work perfectly? No other parts required? Thanks :D
