Colony Front Pinnacle Wheels

“Perfect wheel”

C138_wheels_wasp_front_black

The Good: Almost everything

The Bad: Oilslick loses little color after a long time.

Overall Review: This wheel is very solid. Rim has taken quite the beating and there is very little warping to it. Only issue would be the oilslick coloring somewhat fades away after a long time. But you don't have to have the hub in the oilslick color

2013 Fit Aitken 2 Bike

“A bike that can take a beating”

C138_2013_aitken_2_primer_black_2

The Good: No major problems, very good bike.

The Bad: Cranks did not last very long

Overall Review: Very good bike. No major issues. I ride pretty hard and the bike can take a beating. This bike has taken roof drops, trees, major crashes, and more and is still running.Would highly recommend putting on hub guards when grinding this bike; but again you should have hub guards on any bike you are grinding.Fork dropouts are bent and so are the frame dropouts from grinding but it's not too much of an issue. Crank spindle bent very early into purchase of bike from general riding but it's held up to roof drops and more after that. Had no problem with bars moving when doing drops and jumps. Bars did snap when hitting a tree. Stem is Read More »

Kink Vela 2.1 Tire

“A pretty good tire.”

C138_vela3

The Good: Lasts for a decent amount of time.
Fast High PSI rating

The Bad: When it wears out it is kinda slippy and prone to punctures. Threads come out of the side wall after 6 - 8 months of heavy riding

Overall Review: I have had it since Christmas and it has held up surprisingly well, I didn't see any reviews of it any where so I was taking a risk on buying it because I had no idea what the tire was like. The tire is starting to lose its grip and ever so often I will find myself picking threads off the side wall where the rim meets the tire. It has a rating of 110 PSI so it can go very fast (I wouldn't recommend running ANY tire this hard because it's really harsh on the wrist) My only complaint is that it only comes in 2.10, I would have liked it in 2.25 or 2.3 but the Kink Lyra is the bigger alternative so you will be fine.

Fit FAF 2.2.5 Tire

“Really good all around tire”

C138_tire_225_blk_lrg

The Good: Thick Grippy
Solid
High PSI rating
Fast
Good sidewalls Plenty of colours
Decent life

The Bad: I really can't think of anything wrong with this tire.

Overall Review: A very good 'all around' tire, this will hold up to street, park AND dirt. If you are getting the Fit FAF's go with the 2.25 size because of the aggressive thread as compared to the 2.3 and other sizes. Had it since Christmas 2013 and it still has a lot of life in it, it has 1 small chunk gone out of it but it's fine and it hasn't affected anything. I have had maybe 2 punctures all year with it, first one was because I rode through a lot of glass and I just patched it up and the other time was because the valve on the tube decided to no longer hold air (hadn't replaced the tube for a year) This tire is really fast with 90 in it. I put 110 in just as an experiment once and I went really really fast (Hence Fast As Fuck) This tire is definitely a good buy and it will hold up and give you no problems.

BoneDeth CREEPOZOID V2 Frame

“Built Tough”

C138_61853342

The Good: I like how it has the dual custom gussets ( which i believe eey frame should have) Will handle huge drops and 360s off of shit .Has Flantened rear end tubing for hub dual hub gaurd clearance so you wont stretch your frame.

The Bad: I feel it dents a bit easy and ive grinded on the dropouts so i suggest running hub gaurds

Overall Review: The best frame ive ever rode .

Subrosa Grave Digger Tire

“Good for dirt, park and street!”

C138_20523582

The Good: Full of grip and still runs smooth and fast with all of the tread being equal height all the way around the tire. Really good traction on all types of dirt. Hold corners nice in berms and cruising bowls.

The Bad: Nothing is bad about these.

Overall Review: I have had this tire on my front wheel for about 3 months now. Plenty of grip and they look extremely aggressive which I like. Great on all surfaces.

Subrosa Villicus Handlebars

“Good height, good width”

C138_503_16005_sub_villicusv2bars_black_patch

The Good: Very solid and the height is perfect. The older I get the higher my bars go because the old back just can't take being hunched over anymore. The 9.5's are my favorite bars that I have ever owned and that is saying a lot since I have been riding for 15 years. The badge looks pretty sweet also. Haven't slipped at all. I left them the original width, but it is cool that they have lines that mark the distance so you can cut them evenly if you want.

The Bad: Not a thing.

Overall Review: I will ride these bars for as long as they make them.

Kink Bedlam Sprocket

“Great sprocket”

C138_sprockets_bedlam_back

The Good: Solid sprocket that comes in some nice colours. These things take a beating, I've hooked it many times during crank arm grinds and it continues to hold up.

The Bad: Nothing that I can think of.

Overall Review: I would recommend this sprocket to anyone.

Cult CRANKS

“Super Strong Cranks”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_15_at_3.59.40_pm

The Good: I don't have this particular iteration of the Cult OS cranks because mine are over 2 years old now! They've lasted an incredibly long time, and they continue to hold up even through my learning of crank arm grinds ( bless my poor sprocket's soul).

The Bad: Nothing bad about them.

Overall Review: Super strong cranks all around. I would recommend to anyone.

Cinema Tungsten RHD Rear Wheel

“Okay wheel”

C138_tungsten_rear_black

The Good: The 777 rim holds up to most beatings.
Nice sound ( I don't like anything to loud, it's a nice in between )

The Bad: This hub does not take a beating. I had a bearing explode and the metal fragments chewed up all the internals.

Overall Review: The hub didn't last long, but Cinema has some good reps working over there and they replaced the bearings and driver free of charge, even though it was outside of warranty. I would recommend Cinema as a brand just not this particular product.
