Cult Match Cassette Rear Hub

“Amazing hub”

C138_match_cassette

The Good:

Rolls nice and has taken everything I've thrown at it for almost 4 years now.

The Bad:

Nothing really.

Overall Review: It's the Primo Mix cassette just rebranded, so you know the internals are going to be good. Only somewhat bad thing about it is the non-drive side flange is a bit large and even with a hub guard, grinds tend to wear the spokes down and they eventually snap. Not a huge issue since it's not all the time though, and plus the v2 fixed that.

Colony Squareback Stem

“Sweet looking stem.”

C138_squareback_black

The Good:

Awesome color.
Strong.
Amazing quality.
Solid feel to it.
Unique looking.

The Bad:

Slippery inside.

Overall Review: Amazing looking stem, I have it in the Rainbow colorway and it is killer! It is light yet strong, and definitely makes the bike look sexy. The only bad thing was how my bars kept stripping, I ended up having to sand the insides and then it got better.

C138_dk_cranks

The Good:

Good looking.
Solid built. Cheap.
Light.
Strong.
Aesthetically pleasing.

The Bad:

Nothing so far.

Overall Review: I got these for as little as $110.00! They are definitely a bang for the buck, the look awesome, and came with the tools necessary to be installed. No problems so far, they are strong cranks.

Volume Bermuda V2 Frame

“Amazing Frame.”

C138_volume_bermuda_v2_frame

The Good:

Paint Job.
Quality.
Chain Tensioners.
Solid Frame.

The Bad:

Paint comes off kind of easy, specially by the dropouts.

Overall Review: I got the Mint Chip special run and it is amazing, the quality is on point and everything is welded really nicely. I got mine through DansComp and I got it for a bit less than $300 thanks to a discount I got. It is a solid frame, and it looks really good. Solid bmx frame. It has a unique look.

2016 Kink Solace Hamlin Signature Bike

“Excellent Complete Bike”

C138_bike_solace_k490gld16_flat1

The Good:

All the good that you already know by reading the specs. Built tough.

The Bad:

- Rear Dropouts are 14mm, but the female hub bolt is 3/8ths. With no spacer/collar (Empire BMX sells "Axle adapters") the rear wheel has a lot of shake and movement to it, especially if you ride four pegs. Once I put the Kink Driver Hub Guard on, it was difficult to get the wheel to sit straight. It was always pulling to the left. - Fork length is tight, making Toe-jams sketchy

Overall Review: This bike is light and clean out of the box. You can put it together and go ride it without the addition of any extra parts. It handles like a dream and it is built tough. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.

FBM U.S. Apes Handlebars

“These bars are deah!”

C138_fbm_us_apes_clear

The Good:

The sweep is comfy, nice classic look, damn are these bars light!

The Bad:

I got 9" (lol) which are a bit too high for my liking

Overall Review: I believe they're discontinued now, but I few shops still have them. The 9" are too tall for my liking, but with a flipped stem they feel lovely. I also chopped them down a fair bit. The sweep is really comfy and they're probably the lightest bars I've ever had! They'll give your bike extra deah!

FBM Hard Way Frame

“This frame is Deah!”

C138_fbm_hard_way_frame_trans_gold

The Good:

Nice and simple design with no gimmicks. Geometry is spot on for street. The headtube badge is badass

The Bad:

It has brake lugs and gyro holes. I don't run brakes so they seem a bit unnecessary. It would look a lot cleaner if it was entirely brakeless. But it's just an aesthetic thing and I'm sure there's plenty of people that would want brakes.

Overall Review: Couldn't be happier with this frame. It's a bit on the heavy side, but the geometry makes it really easy to throw about without sacrificing stability too much. And the extra weight gives me confidence I won't snap it any time soon. There's no real details (stamped logo's, pretty stay bridges etc.) but I love the simplicity. And that headtube badge more than makes up for it. I got the trans gold, which I was worried would look like stale piss, but it's really nice irl.

2013 MirraCo Bronson Bike

“Love the bike”

C138_2013_bronson_flatteal

The Good:

Overall happy with everything. It's light, fast, and looks sick.

The Bad:

The only thing I don't like is the tire size that ill probably change from 20 2.5 and 2.0 to 20 2.5 and 2.1 or 2.2.

Overall Review: Great bike I think I paid around 400 for it when it came out.
