As in the most problematic, crappy feeling or low quality part that you have ACTUALLY RIDDEN
for me it was my primo v2 strands, way too snappy and made it really hard to go very fast (i had a 75 headtube)
or my v1 pleg, thing was too flexy. should have kept the insert, ive been pegless for a couple days and a micropeg would be pretty cool

Demolition Anorexia cassette hub for sure
Nothing but problems with that thing, bought it as a complete wheel & after a month the driver blew up, so I opened it up and all the ball bearings came out along with a fuckton of metal shavings. Demolition warrantied it no problem though which was cool, and my second one I ran the driver slightly loose as a precaution but eventually it started making noises & someone on here actually said to put a small spacer behind the driver which solved my problem until I snapped the axle, replaced that, soon after the driver blew up again & after I fixed that, bent the axle so I just got rid of it. This all happened in about a year's time.
Honorable mentions would be my Kink Viridian front hub that after riding it for 1 week spun like an unsealed wheel on its last leg, and my Shadow Strike stem which I snapped after 4 months of barely riding it (I was recovering from a torn ACL so I didn't do much of anything)
Thats a good one, I had a real dislike for my Plastic Odyssey Pivotal due to how many jeans it ripped.
lots of grips and shit like that but i can't think of any real hard goods i have broken prematurely.

Cult half link and Cult chain breaker. Ran it for like 3 days and it was super rough, went to take it off for whatever reason and the chain breaker managed to break into like 4-5 pieces and got stuck on the chain and made it useless. I was using it properly and everything too haha. But it's really not that bad, I've liked almost all the parts I've had.
I've snapped two during smiths
My fly slim seat. That thing was more uncomfortable than typical slims. I've had plain plastic race seats feel better. Dennis Enarson grips. Just sucked in general. No grip. Wore fast.
I've hated my duo martinez grips because they are slippery af. I want to try to use scooter grips next lol

I had a eastern choke stem that kept slipping the bars, so every time i landed flat i would be afraid that the bars would slip forward and and i would eat the ground. lol
Stolen Money grips - So god damn slippy
Eclat slim seat - Like taking a 10" in your ass
I'm gonna need bigger bars
ive just got those dennis enarson demo grips and they do feel like theyllbe fucked in no time. Had a shit time with an eclat pulse hub, the SDS was shitat this point, and the ratchet ring shattered the same way about 2-3 times. Had some shit chains aswell, but the worst part ive run was hands down the demo momentum tyre. Nearly killed me like 100 times, fuck that thing, slippy af.

Demolition Momentum tire. Bought it because it was cheap. Worst thing ever. Also a Colony Guetler sprocket that bent when I didn't even hit it on anything.

the stem that came on my 2008 kink apex. it was just some clunky generic thing but it slipped and didn't feel strong at all. i upgraded and it made me realize how much of a difference a higher end stem/components makes in how solid your bike feels.
My Other Ride
I've sold stuff to Ecuadevil, LLURider, and Mario.villegas90 with no complaints.
Verde sprocket I bent it in a week without hitting anything
I absolutely hated my Odyssey Bluebird, it worked pretty good for a little less than a month but after that it would break 2 or 3 times a month (I had it for 4 months or so) compared to my stock chain that I had for a year and didn't break once . I don't exactly like my Odyssey Quadrant either.
Demolition momentum tire- Bought it brand new when they first came out and after having it for a week the bead ripped off the rest of the tire, it was only at 70 psi and i wasent even riding when it happened.
Fly v3 cranks- bought them brand new and the lasted 4 months.
Cult vans grips- waay to thick for my liking, they get really sticky when they get old, and i destoryed a pair in two weeks of riding.
