2016 WeThePeople Zodiac Bike

“WTP Zodiak FC”


The Good:

Cool looking, solid frame, good cranks

The Bad:

Tail heavy with the free coaster hub, knarl on bars is not very deep or aggressive could cause bars to slip, tires are poor quality as they have high spots on them causing hop

Overall Review: I purchased the zodiac to add to my collection of bmx bikes because I loved the 4 piece bars and the white tires, I also wanted to try a free coaster. My over all impressionsis thebikeis decent but maybe not the best bike you could get at this price. The frame and fork are very solid, no creaks or bends but I did upgrade the bars to a set of S&M 4 piece bars as the knarl on the stock bars is not very deep and can slip in the stem if you have a hard landing. Another thing I noticed is the free coaster does make the bike seem a bit tail heavy so bunny hops will need some more muscle to level them out, needless to say I Read More »

Merritt BMX Cross Check (charlie Crumlish) Grips

“Pretty good”


The Good:

Neon Splatter is fucking sick
Bar ends are the best

The Bad:

Wear quite fast

Overall Review: I would only recommend these grips if you are willing to buy another set within 1 to 2 months. The are really comfy.

Division Sierra Grips

“Long is the right word.”


The Good:

Not Deeply Ribbed or Too Thick.
They Feel Comfortable.
Thick and Durable Barends.

Barends Don't Have Elaborate Designs or Cutouts that get easily mutilated after Bailing.

The Bad:

Nothing that I have come across in the design or the quality of the material.

Overall Review: I recently received them and the Gum Brown colour is stunning, not often the most common trait of brown. The design of the grip I can imagine will wear less than the traditional (vertical mushroom ribbed) pattern due to the 45 Degree angle of the ribs leading to the division logo, which is about an inch wide of vertical ribbing next to the end of the grip. (index or smallest finger area). The length is more than enough landing pad for catching the bars during any trick involving removing your hands quickly and grabbing rapidly. After the metric conversion they are 6.3" long. On a last note, these grips are made with similar comfort of an ODI but with the addition of nearly an inch extra than the longneck and a cross section boasting a "Division" logo. I recommend these.

2015 Subrosa Arum XL Bike

“The subrosa arum xl is an amazing mid class bike not for beginners but for those who are starting to abuse and use their bike more harder.”


The Good:

fully sealed and a great bike to build up and each year comes with a new custom paint job for the arums

The Bad:

I've always been kinda worried that the back end wish bone style dropout will snap easier

Overall Review: I love this bike. I have been riding a 2012 arum for ever and that bike has put up with so much abuse. and after you buy a few better parts such as cranks rear hub and chain its pretty much set. I love this bike and I plan to buy the new 2016 arum xl

Odyssey Dugan Tire

“Grippy and fast”


The Good:

These bad boys grip really good and roll quick too!

The Bad:

Objects leave small nicks and cuts in the rubber because it is soft but I havent had any punctures from things in the 5 or so months that I've had them. They also don't squeak.

Overall Review: I would definitely reccommend these tyres as the grip on all surfaces is bloody good. The weight is on the heavier side but oddly enough I couldn't 360 with light tyres (ody aitken/maxxis holy roller) but when I put these on after a week I could 360! It seems like heavier tyres almost give you something to push against while spinning, instead of with light tyres where they feel unstable.

S&M Cameron Wood Frame

“Badass frame!”


The Good:

Lovely geometry, feels solid, looks pretty, made by riders for riders, murican made!

The Bad:

What? Nothing bad. Although the dropouts are a bit small if you run pegs I guess?

Overall Review: First s&m frame I've had since my pbr 10 years ago. Won't be going back to anything made in Taiwan again! I trust this a lot more than anything else I've had in that time and the geometry is spot on. Probably a bit heavier than previous frames I've had, but the extra weight feels so much more stable, it's actually easier to ride and gives me more confidence
