Alienation Rush V2 Freecoaster Hub Rear Hub

“Second year and great”

C138_rushnewblack

The Good: Problem free and still smooth and silent is how I like my hubs. The external slack adjustment is the only way to go!

The Bad: My slack screw would tighten itself after a few rides. So I took it out for full slack. Otherwise that's a minor issue. Works great though.

Overall Review: Worth every penny. The trendy coasters aren't the best from what I'm hearing. Read reviews fellas.

2014 Premium Products Solo Bike

“It is a beast”

C138_2014_premium_solo_matte_black

The Good: Great for beginners

The Bad: No sealed hubs

Overall Review: The bike is a great beginners bike if you are trying to ride, but not riding as much as an experienced rider. This bike come with CK ( Chad Kerley) tires alienation rims and odyssey plastic pedals. This bike does not have sealed hubs so if you want to ride more often get some sealed hubs.,

The Good: rides super smooth and wethepeople frames are just comfortable to ride

Overall Review: I've only owned the bike for about a week and it rides super smooth and really easy to spin and manual.

“The Frame is good ”

C138_2012_luxstar_flatblack

The Good: The frame is strong it can hold up to 300 lbs.

The Bad: The parts that comes with the frame.

Overall Review: I'm a big guy and I love this frame and I recommend this frame to any one.

Cult HALFLINK Chain

“can't go wrong ”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_16_at_10.26.32_am

The Good: Thick af, strong as hell, best half link ever

The Bad: Chainbreaker killer

Overall Review: I've ridden this chain for over a year and it only snapped once but only bc a pin wasnt through all the way of the link and I was too lazy to push it in all the way. You will never have/want to buy another chain again

Cult VANS Grips

“quite disappointed...”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_14_at_3.56.27_pm

The Good: Vans waffle design is sweet

The Bad: Calluse creator, wore down quick, never stayed in place (twisting back and forth wise)

Overall Review: Love Cult but Honestly one of the worse products they have. Just get ODIs

Demolition Momentum Tire

“Nice Lightweight tire”

C138_img_3104

The Good: Grippy, squeaky, durable/long lasting, light as fu**

The Bad: Flat city, really thin (reasoning for weight)

Overall Review: Real nice tire, but be ready to have backup tubes on you. Daily rider and I rode mine for at least half a year. Recommended for them street riders!

Fit F.A.F. Tire

“YOU WONT REGRET ”

C138_84113350_1268269372

The Good: Last long, super grippy, chirps like a fat bird, barely any flats

The Bad: Nothing bad about it

Overall Review: I ran two sets of these and I loved them. I've ridden the 2.25, 2.3, and 2.4. If you are wanting a "knobby" looking tire run the 2.25s. If you want that nice slick looking tire get the 2.3 or 2.4. The 2.25 and 2.4 are about the same width inflated. Thinking about switching to deharts now

2013 WeThePeople Trust Bike

“wethepeople trust 2012 (black 20.5)”

C138_wethepeople_trust_2013_bmx_bike

The Good: I think the best part is the fork because It took a lot of beating and it never bent or cracked plus it's feels very light. The cranks are really good too. Never had a problem with except a little noise it does when I pedal but It's not really disturbing. The eclat pedals are very grippy even when they wear out (because of nylon I think).
Both hubs are very good, never had a problem with them.
The rims are pretty solid parts in this bike. They took a lot of beating when I ride them and they are still fine except the back one that is slighly oval but it still resisted alot.
The chain never broke and is pretty light I just had to add a half-link and remove a link because it was too loose.
I personally like the seat because it's fat but not too much so it's ideal for me cause I don't sit too much.
The sprocket is decent. I never hitted the bike on that part so it never bent.

The Bad: I like the color of the bars however the geometry was weird and I've bent them like 5 months ago. The frame was very solid and light but I'm quite tall (6'1) so sometimes I hit the bars with my knees when i'm riding. It happened that I broke the top tube 2 month ago and I really didn't expect that. It lasted me like 2 years so It wasn't a really bad frame but a bit little for me. The tyres wears very fast and the pitch mid had a cut on the left wall 1 month after getting the bike. The pitch flow lasted a bit more but I had a lot of punctures and tyre was so weared out that you could almost see the inner tube. The grips are shit they last nothing.

Overall Review: I rode this bike for more than 2 years and it's still a great bike! All the parts of this bike are very solid and light. It's a good first bike and then change the defective parts for better ones.

Fit S4 Aitken Frame

“A good frame!”

C138_frame_s4_turq_lt

The Good: Good color variety, great weight, and good durability.

The Bad: Paint is really cheap or whatever, so it chips real easily. Otherwise, I have the teal version and it's the best looking paint for a frame I've ever had!

Overall Review: If anything you can judge at first, the paint for sure is one of the main cons of the frame. It's thin or whatever, so it chips real easily. So if you're not a color person, just try to find the raw version (applies to any part, really). As for dent resistance, I've caught it on a ledge twice on each chainstay and it left a minor dent, not too bad. I've rode some S&M frames before, so I'd have to say they're pretty similar durability-wise.  Not to mention, coincidentally, the frame was manufactured by S&M. The weight is average (4 lbs, 13 oz), not that I really care too much, unless a frame is like almost 6 pounds.
