Kink Bedlam Sprocket

“Great sprocket”

C138_sprockets_bedlam_back

The Good: Solid sprocket that comes in some nice colours. These things take a beating, I've hooked it many times during crank arm grinds and it continues to hold up.

The Bad: Nothing that I can think of.

Overall Review: I would recommend this sprocket to anyone.

Cult CRANKS

“Super Strong Cranks”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_15_at_3.59.40_pm

The Good: I don't have this particular iteration of the Cult OS cranks because mine are over 2 years old now! They've lasted an incredibly long time, and they continue to hold up even through my learning of crank arm grinds ( bless my poor sprocket's soul).

The Bad: Nothing bad about them.

Overall Review: Super strong cranks all around. I would recommend to anyone.

Cinema Tungsten RHD Rear Wheel

“Okay wheel”

C138_tungsten_rear_yellow

The Good: The 777 rim holds up to most beatings.
Nice sound ( I don't like anything to loud, it's a nice in between )

The Bad: This hub does not take a beating. I had a bearing explode and the metal fragments chewed up all the internals.

Overall Review: The hub didn't last long, but Cinema has some good reps working over there and they replaced the bearings and driver free of charge, even though it was outside of warranty. I would recommend Cinema as a brand just not this particular product.

Cinema Tungsten Female Front Wheel

“Solid Wheel all around!”

C138_tungsten_female_front_yellow

The Good: I've had this wheel for about 2 years now, and it still runs just as well as it did when I bought it. The rim is strong, the hub lasts, and the price is right.

The Bad: This the only front hub that Cinema does not make a hub guard for. You may be stuck running a Gsport GLAND hub guard or you might get lucky and find a compatible hub guard.

Overall Review: Awesome wheel all around! I just wish they made a hub guard for it. Don't let that stop you from getting this wheel though.

Colony Rear Freecoaster Wheels

“Solid Wheel while it lasts”

C138_wheels_freecoaster_close

The Good: Rim is fairly strong,
Freecoaster ran well before it broke
Adjustable slack is awesome

The Bad: The hub broke after 5 months. Which is apparently pretty normal for freecoasters. Be careful when considering buying one, they don't last as long as you think.

Overall Review: I give this set up about a 3 and a half because the wheel did hold up to some rough beatings but in the end the hub broke.

BSD High Lander Handlebars

“BSD Highlander Bars ”

C138_bsdproductsbarshighlander003red

The Good: Perfect average height, good range or colours, put to the test by a series of good riders

The Bad: Nothing, the bars are good!

Overall Review: Look nice and clean,Perfect average height, good range or colours, put to the test by a series of good riders

2013 Kink Whip Bike

“Good bike mainly for beginner riders”

C138_whip_prp_front

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 Review: 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!

BSD High Lander Handlebars

“Best handlebars I've ever owned!”

C138_bsdproductsbarshighlander003red

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

The Bad: Nothing bad about them to me!

Overall Review: 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!

Mission Converge Stem

“Don't know what to think about with this stem”

C138_94015110_1291047069

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 Review: 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.
