2013 Fit VH Signature Bike

“Solid and ready to ride”

C138_2013_vh_signature_candy_red

The Good: Fit did a sweet job at spec'ing out the VH Sig with all the after market level parts. Look around online, you can find this 2013 bike on clearance for $500 online.

The Bad: Nothing bad to say.

Overall Review: I've spent most of my BMX years riding beater used Craigslist bikes. Decided to commit to improving my skills and picked up this leftover 2013 VH Sig at the local shop. After riding beater setups, this VH Sig rocks.The part spec is on par with after market stuff, even down to the grips and pedals where bike makers skimp. It really is ready to roll, even has a rear hub guard. The bike is solid and has taken everything that I know how to throw it. I find it easier to manual and hop on the VH Sig. My old beater was a 2010 Felt Vault. The only thing you'll need to add is maybe another side of pegs if you ride with them on Read More »

Tree Bicycle Co. Ergo Slim Seat Seat

“Best slim seat ”

C138_screen_shot_2012_03_22_at_4.14.15_pm

The Good: Comfortable, Not slippy, Durable.

The Bad: The nose is a little flexy and if it gets wet it absorbs the water a lot.

Overall Review: I bought it for 25 euro and I am very happy with it, it's very comfortable to sit on and it doesn't hurt, the lip at the back of the makes it feel wide like a stool. It's easy to find the bolt inside the seat (sometimes fat seats are tricky) The cover is soft and stretchy (it won't rip)

2014 Stolen Heist Bike

“Amazingly smooth and fast”

C138_heist1

The Good: Super light, quality materials, basically everything about the bike.

The Bad: Sucky pedals, stickers start to peel quickly, the stickers look bad.

Overall Review: Really good bike for anyone to use regularly. Not a scratch after riding almost everyday for a month. Overall a Great Bike.

Tree Bicycle Co. Sequoia Bars Handlebars

“These bars though”

C138_screen_shot_2011_10_12_at_12.31.59_pm

The Good: Perfect for barspins, slightly different from the norm, perfect geometry, threaded barends, tree, just about everything.

The Bad: Slightly different shape could lead to bars bending due to more leverage, highly doubt it though.

Overall Review: These bars are solid. I can not really fault them in any way, and they have the perfect balance of control and manouverability (sp?) .They just feel great to ride and look the part. And for just £26 down from £70 or whatever these bars were and are just the best. I cant imagine myself switching to another set.

2015 Stolen Zeke Bike

“Stolen Zeke”

C138_2014_zeke

The Good: Full chromo frame, forks, handlebars. Easy to ride, high bottom bracket so easy to hop and jump. Tires and rims are smooth. Looks pretty cool, get a lot of compliments on it.

The Bad: Handlebars too small, the 1 piece seat and post sucks, uncomfortable and too low for a cruiser. The brakes aren't too good either.

Overall Review: This is my first 26" BMX, and really my first BMX in 20+ years, but I really like it. I like the looks of the bike and that it's 100% chromoly.  I am 6'3" and 240 lbs. and after changing the seat post and seat to a Shadow Conspiracy 320mm and Stolen Kushion it's a lot more fun to ride.  Pretty long top tube makes it comfortable, but not too big to jump and hop up steps.

Shadow Conspiracy Overtaker Tire

“Shadow Overtaker ”

C138_22419200

The Good: Great overall tread, Light weight, looks great

The Bad: only one size.

Overall Review: I have these tires on two bikes, front and rear on my park/street bike and as a front tire on my race bike. Many reviews on how they handle park/street so I will write about  as a race tire. The 2.25 makes it perfect as a front race tire providing great traction on all dirt tracks and also ones with paved berms. The tires handle the transition between pavement and dirt on the track wonderfully. the high pressure and light weight make it ideal for racing. The tread has held up (racing almost every weekend this season and sprint training 3-4 times a week) with no signs of balding, and handles the super sandy and muddy condition very well. I would say better than most "racing tires".  Only down side it , lack of sizes. If it came in a 1.75 or even a 1.95 I would run it.
