Shadow Conspiracy Captive Fork

“Adjustable forks”

C138_102_06481_tsc_captiveforks_red

The Good:

Fairly light and have held up to plenty of abuse. Also has adjustable offset if your into that kinda thing.

The Bad:

If you need to remove your front wheel a lot to get your bike in and out of car you will quickly get over having to completely remove the bolt to get it out of the stays. Also sometimes putting the washers back in it can be a bit of a pain.

Overall Review: The only reason i got these forks was because i bent mine and i got these on the cheap and after owning a pair i wouldnt buy another pair. I was initially excited over the adjustability but then again I have never put it into the 32mm offset so the added hassle of wheel removal hasnt been worth it for me. But if you are after a set of adjustable forks definitely give these a go. They look good are strong and the paint work is pretty durable.

Kink Mudrunner Frame

“Solid Frame!”

C138_screen_shot_2016_01_12_at_7.59.31_pm

The Good:

The weight, for those who like light frames
Very clean cut, and an awesome aesthetic with the headtube badge
Very nice to handle, geo is on point for all sorts of riding

The Bad:

The weight, for anyone who feels more comfortable on a bulkier feeling frame
No removable tab holes for a gyro setup, which would be an awesome addition

Overall Review: I believe that this is a super nice frame, and I got mine for a super nice deal. Right around 77 USD shipped from Amazon (normal retail is 330 USD) I've had this frame since October possibly, with no issues at all. handling was much lankier at first but that's because I was coming off a more technical street frame. I have no complaints on the build of this frame, geo is spot on for everything, learning nose manuals is no issue, I do ride 28mm offset on my forks though. My frame's weight for the top tube length I have is 4 lbs 6.3 oz I am riding the Gloss Navy Ben Hittle Kink Mudrunner in 20.75" Once you get used to it, it'll be Read More »

2016 Sunday EX Chris Childs Bike

“Low end parts”

C138_2016_ex_chris_childs

The Good:

Rides great and is good looking. It is a good complete bike and would recomend building off of. It has good traction will big tires and the bars feel wonderful

The Bad:

I have been told many times how nice the double wall wheels are. They arent actually double wal or nice. The cranks bend super easy so i would swap those first. The tires dont hold very high psi. All the parts are lower end for the price

Overall Review: I would recomend to some one looking for a bike to ride right away but things will break sortly. If you can afford to fix it here a d there it is really nice and one of my favorite bikes to ride

Mission Transit Cranks

“Hold on i have to fix my cranks”

C138_141885040_1290457360

The Good:

They are cheap and colorful. You can probably find a friend that is giving them away

The Bad:

They are cheap and low quality. They come loose so you tighten them more. Then you get the standard broken spindle bolt look.

Overall Review: I would not recommend for any riding. They are sketcky at best. The price reflects the quality.

Shadow Conspiracy Deadbolt Bar Ends

“They are great just keep them from getting sharp”

C138_49035325

The Good:

They are strong and last long

The Bad:

They get sharp ends over time

Overall Review: Just file them down every once in a while and you wont have any problems. Well worth it though. I have had them longer than most of the parts on my bike

Demolition Rotator Freecoaster Hub Rear Hub

“Got from a friend”

C138_img_2803

The Good:

It was free and i built a nice wheel around it. It seems to be pretty common and cheap

The Bad:

I see alot of them with blow driver bearing mine included. I see less that work the way they are suppose to.

Overall Review: I went with it to see if i liked free coasters. It works pretty well it just pops and cracks when you stop pedalling some times.

2009 Subrosa 2009 NOVUS STREET Bike

“Its pretty ok”

C138_s1600_91713420_1262030554

The Good:

The wheels and cranks were strong and the frame was nice

The Bad:

The frame dents and the fork and front axle bent. The geomety is long.

Overall Review: It held up great for some time. Deffinently better for dirt than park or street. I loved it i had just thrashed on it more than a complete bike is built for.

Shadow Conspiracy Little One Pegs Pegs

“Bullet proof”

C138_103_06303_tsc_littleonespegs_black_single

The Good:

Affordable good looking and you can get sleeves for them. They are super strong and work great

The Bad:

Slippery when wet

Overall Review: I have had mine for 3 years and never rotate them. They still have tons of life and work great. Just get sleeves for parks that dont allow metal pegs and they will last longer than the bike.
