2012 Subrosa Arum Street Bike

“subrosa arum street ”

C138_16609919

The Good:

El cuadro, la orquilla,el poste y el manubrio

The Bad:
Grips: no duran.

Overall Review: La bici es muy buena, lo unico que yo le cambiaria los grips a y yo le retiraria los frenos para disminuir el peso en la bici bueno ya que yo hago bmx de calle y casi no se utilizan los frenos, y entre mas ligera sea la bici es mejor para todas las modalidades de bmx

S&M B.T.M. Frame

“Finally snapped but loved it.”

C138_s_m_btm_trans_black

The Good:

Good geo for street and park riding. Slammed rear end helps with techy tricks or extend it for a good combination of tech and park style. The trans sky blue colorway looks awesome I got compliments all the time. I didn't have problems with paint chipping or fading like other people said however their reviews are older so I'm sure they had different colorways back then.

The Bad:

Nothing, the frame snapped after 2 years of use.

Overall Review: I mainly do grinds among many other things. This is my 2nd s&m frame. The 1st, randy brown, snapped after it got passed down to three riders and lasted at least 2-3 years. My BTM actually lasted exactly 2 years. It snapped but I'm not mad because it lasted a long time and I got my money's worth. No doubt I will be getting another s&m soon, this time trying out the ATF.

Nitrous OG Fork

“decent for the price”

C138_fork_nitrous_og_matte_hot_blue_14mm_2_lores

The Good:

Super strong really nice drop outs fits 20x2.40 tires and still has a lot of space. The colors are really nice and the paint is super solid

The Bad:

The bearing race is kinda big and slips on the bearing some times. Also the co pression bolt is big and bulky and it has the welded thing inside. The compression bolt comes loose really easy

Overall Review: Its a good fork for the price but I wouldn't buy it again, its good if your a beginner or if your on a budget I would recommend it

Subrosa Skeleton Crew Grips

“Really good and lasting”

C138_15855929

The Good:

They came on a used bike and ive had them for a year and a half. They really last and don't wear down a lot. They are soft and grippy even when wet.

The Bad:

Water can sometimes come in the sides if you ride for a lone time but that's the only problem.

Overall Review: Very good they've lasted a long time and the only reason I'm replacing them is because I have crashed a few times and they were cut so water gets in when I ride and they slip around. They still haven't worn down all the way after a year and a half.

Sunday Soundwave Frame

“Dialed in... ”

C138_sunday_soundwave_frame_trans_red

The Good:

Guarantee, strength, details, 9" standover, built-in chain tensioners, tapered stays.

The Bad:

Limited colors.

Overall Review: The 2015 Sunday Soundwave frame is awesome. It is definitely one of the best and most well appointed frames available. Sunday's finish on the frame is beautiful although only available in Slate blue (meh!) and flat black. I love black bikes, but I purchased a complete Sunday Special, which is only available in slate blue. I'm not a huge fan of the slate blue, but to build a comparable bike you'll spend at least 2 grand. Anyway, the frame itself is also life time guaranteed being 46 Thermal manufactured. The strength is clear and transfers into the ride. The slammed rear end with tapered stays makes the bike ride super Read More »

Subrosa Noster Frame

“Pretty alright ”

C138_subrosa_noster_frame

The Good:

21.15 top tube, super strong

The Bad:

Back end is really long

Overall Review: It's a pretty straight frame, just takes some getting used to on the manuals

2013 Felt Chasm Bike

“Great Bike”

C138_2013_chasm_liquid_red

The Good:

Very good acceleration and speed, hills are easy to go up as the glide lasts long. great handling brakes are sharp and smooth. Very light only 11kg. If you need a bmx for stunts i recommend this, but you may need thicker tyres to prevent punctures which were very common for me.

The Bad:

with this bike i had to replace the inner tubes in the rear and front it was disappointing at first, however the tyres are thin so they're prone to punctures. Buy a new pair of 20" tyres and you'll be fine.

Overall Review: Overall great bike just the tyres aren't durable. It's still worth buying although new tyres are a must if you plan on going off road and doing tricks.

BSD ALVX Frame

“BSD ALVX Frame”

C138_bsdproductsframesalvx014

The Good:

-Super short CS length
-Strong AF
-Steep HT
-Really snappy

The Bad:

The BB shell is wider than most frames Ive had (Kink Whip, Verde Radia, Premium Josh Harrington Sig., United RN3) so dialing in the chain alignment was kinda hard

Overall Review: This frame is super super snappy and great for spins and manuals. Its really stiff and just feels solid. Its got clean welds all the way around, plenty of room for wide tires, thick dropouts, all the works. I love it a lot. It comes at a decent price, and I got it in 21" and I couldnt ask for better geometry. Fantastic if you love to ride street or just like to spin and do manny lines.
