“same problem 3rd person”

C138_talon_cp

The Good:

they look cool wish they fit

The Bad:

tried pressing the cranks on for quite some time, grease and everything but they hardly moved.

Overall Review: hoping to exchange for something that fits. called dans comp they reffered me to stolen but havent been able to get ahold of them. This seems like a common issue

2013 Kink Barrier Bike

“Love my kink!”

C138_barrier_blk_front

The Good:

4130 frame, nice fork, light seat, fat 2.3 kink lyra tires last pretty long, double walled alienation black sheep rims, fully sealed front and back hubs, nice red color, strong cranks

The Bad:

Bars were too small, got 8.75 rise chrome bars for a replacement. Sprocket bent, chain stretched, bad headset and bottom bracket. Got shadow serpent sprocket, the kmc kool chain, eclat campy spec headset, & kink BB kit for replacements. Grips also wear out quick. Upgrades the pedals to stolen thermolite pedals. And can't run pegs on back axle which sucks

Overall Review: Feels great in my hands

FBM CB4K's 16" Fork

“16" fbm forks! ”

C138_fbm_cb4ks_16_black

The Good:

Made in the USA. 4130. If your kid goes big. Why trust the complete bike forks.

The Bad:

Nadda. My son has loved them so far. 8 months so far

Overall Review: Awesome fork. I don't have to worry about my kid snapping his fork.

Stolen Talon Cranks

“These cranks are awful”

C138_talon_cp

The Good:

Absolutely nothing

The Bad:

Everything

Overall Review: I know I am going to sound like the guy below, but I feel the same way. The spindle would go into the crank arm, but only a very minuscule amount. I had used plenty of grease and had worked at it for hours. As a result of this malfunction, I am looking to return them. This may be seen as a coincidence, but I beg to differ.

Colony Anyway Plastic Pegs

“DONT DO IT”

C138_plastic_pegs1

The Good:

inexpensive

The Bad:

sleeves wear down far too fast

Overall Review: they slide well, b/c they're plastic, but they wear down incredibly fast, very disappointing now im going to have to buy a new set b/c i dont want to be replacing the sleeves every week

Cult HALFLINK Chain

“Get it, you won't regret it”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_16_at_10.26.32_am

The Good:

Solid, feels and looks good, haven't snapped it yet. Strong af.

The Bad:

Lil stretchy

Overall Review: Nice solid chain, dialed in my back end, but it stretched a little bit. I probably just run my chain too tight but I've had to take out a couple links as it has gotten to chainstay slapping stretchy.

2016 Fit Mac 2 Bike

“Best stock bike ever! ”

C138_2016_mac_2_right1

The Good:

This is one of the best stock bikes I have ever ridden!

The Bad:

Just a few things. After riding daily for 6 months straight, I had to replace the back tire due to excessive skidding. The bars didn't have much knurling (I eventually bent them after crashing) and I bent the cranks on a 7 foot drop. Nothing ever cracked or snapped. REMEMBER, you get what you pay for. I highly reccomend this bike.

Overall Review: If you're looking to get a complete BMX bike, go with this. I highly reccomend it.

Stolen Stratos Stem

“Not Very Good”

C138_stratos_1

The Good:

This stem is quite cheap at about $40. It is a great stem if you plan on using it for transport (in association with a bike of course lol) and when you are not landing on the stem or anything of that nature.

The Bad:

The bars move, no matter how tight the stem bolts are. Grease, sanding the paint on the bars and even lock tight don't seem to solve the problem.

Overall Review: I would not recommend this stem to anyone other than people who solely want to use it for riding on the ground, no jumps or tricks. The handle bars move when I use this stem no matter what I do to help or how much I tighten it. At the end of the day moving bars is not what you want and money would be better invested in another stem.
