“Decent bike.”

The Good: Frame, forks, and rims.

The Bad: Wheels and stem.

Overall Review: Mine was okay. The forks and frame felt solid but the wheels pooped out on me. The forks and frame right now have a new owner and are lasting. I broke some other parts on it but I can't complain really. For not having great specs it was pretty nice. The back wheel felt pretty solid even though mine locked up and the bearings blew. For a 430$ complete or whatever, definitely 4 stars. The frames the best part though. My rims on it were unbreakable though, someone else has been using em for a while now.

“FBM heathen V2 review updated”

The Good: very light strongish frame , stem holds well , decent tires , i swapped my front for the Maxxis holy roller . looks and rides good all around louder rear hub while it lasts. the rims are tough as hell, and the driver lives on in an odsy hub.

The Bad: cheap sprocket , weak bars , crappy front hub the front tire was light but slipped on park and street. cracked my down tube gusset weld. Rear hub just crapped out on me. replaced by a new primo mix. also the headset was rather sticky compared to the new kink. but its only a stock one. whats it matter?

Overall Review: very well built , got front triangle of chro-mo removable mounts, good solid hubs to begin with, VERY strong rims, looks the best in white, but its new one is a shit show in comparison. If you do break it you get a new fbm frame for cheap money, good stuff too.

“LOVE this bike!!”

The Good: strong--has held up for me perfectly, a good geometry that is useable for anything you want to ride

The Bad: personally the bars were too short for me and the sprocket bent in half on a grind so i had to replace them & i never did trust the stem even though i never had any problems with it(got a shadow stem)

Overall Review: good bike, can barely ask for more of it

“A good bike overall”

The Good: everything but the stem and front tire

The Bad: stem is kinda big and weak, knobby front tire

Overall Review: The bike is really good overall, the only thing really wrong was the original stem would not hold bars in place, so i traded up to a animal jumpoff remix much better, the knobby front tire in my opinion takes away the clean look of the bike so i swapped for a kenda kontact., but you get alot of bike for the money...
