Kink Universal Freecoaster Hub Guard

“Ehhhhh it's alright ”

C138_guard_freecoaster_k7370blk_detail

The Good:

Cheap, replaces your non-drive side come nut. Seems to take abuse well, but I mainly ride coped ledges and rails.

The Bad:

The sleeve ends up stretching and it doesn't fit snugly onto the cone nut after a while. So sleeve will rotate if not tightened down a stupid amount.

Overall Review: With all the other brands out there I would just try one of the other universal freecoaster guards, or I would use chromo universals. That or buy the proper brand for your hub.

Kink Universal Driver Hub Guard

“Decent hubguard”

C138_screen_shot_2015_03_16_at_00.47.54

The Good:

Chromoly hub guard, universal, did its job and keeps on going with some assistance. Not too heavy.

The Bad:

I cracked it, then I broke off the cracked piece and now I'm just riding it til' it says no more. May have to stretch your frame to fit. I did with both my '13 Benny Lewis Sig and my '16 ALVX v2. Not as beefy as TDGs driver side hub guard.

Overall Review: This hub guard has been through it. It's been on my bike since Sept. '15 and it is still going even though it broke. It broke just enough to where it was still functional, it's definitely on its last leg now. I have to constantly bend it back if I'm not smooth butter in the grind. For $25 it's ok if budgeting, but I would get TDGs hub guard instead for the extra few bucks.

Cinema ZX Rear Wheel

“Cinema zx cassette”

C138_zx_rear_wheel

The Good:

Like the engagement, rolls nice.

The Bad:

Maybe the rim it comes laced to.

Overall Review: Worth maybe researching price would be nice if it came on a 777 rim but you get what you pay for.like the engagement with riding dirt. Laced it to an eclat rim laying around.sick.

Odyssey Hazard Rear Wheel Wheels

“Not Completely Terrible”

C138_91502400_1262029581

The Good:

It works fine. I'm 165 lbs, i ride cement parks and light street, pegless . Either way people ride differently, and this wheel will still roll for you.

The Bad:

Overpriced.

Overall Review: I've probably had three or four of these Odyssey HAzard wheels. They work fine BUt, When i buy one of these, I understand that it's going to be a short term commitment. After i buy one, I end up buying another one next year to replace it. Now I ride 36 hole Eclat Hubs and Shadow Rims. My Eclat/Shadow setup has lasted around 3 years so far Without so much as a squeak or a tweaked rim.

Odyssey Hazard Rear Wheel Wheels

“Pretty wheel ”

C138_91502400_1262029581

The Good:

I have the same exact wheel with a 10t driver on it & I never had any problems with it at all also I have a matching front wheel laced to Vandero2 with all new spokes & nipples which I've spent $20 bucks on them since I relaced it.

I maintenance on it every once in awhile.

The Bad:

The pawls of the driver stick somewhat.

Overall Review: They are really good & strong rims.

Alienation Runaway Rim

“Great rim for the price”

C138_runblk

The Good:

Quite strong, cross laced, cheap

The Bad:

Nothing bad at all

Overall Review: Mine lasted 2 years of abuse, gave it to a friend when I got my G-Sports and it's still going strong. Definitely worth getting if you're looking for a good cheapish rim that'll last you a while.

Stolen Throttle (Sealed) Pedals

“Nice and grippy, really strong”

C138_2011stln_throttlesbpedalwhite

The Good:

I took out half the pins on one side for grinding, and the pedal body has held up great! They're grippy, and I've never slipped a pedal.

The Bad:

Nothing at all. If you're going to bitch about them being too heavy, go ride a scooter.

Overall Review: I've had these pedals for about 7 months, and they've held up great! So far they've survived numerous stair sets, a 7 foot drop and a 10 foot drop. They're definitely worth the money.
