2012 Eastern Bikes Reaper Bike

“Great bike and rides excellent.”

C138_complete_2012_reaper_matte_graphite

The Good:

Light, looks great, rides good.

The Bad:

Brakes, rust

Overall Review: So far it is doing great! I bought it used and it had barely been ridden. I have done a lot of beginner/intermediate concrete park and some light street riding. It feels much better than my older early 2000 Haro that I had put away for 15 years. It spins decent and manuals easily over boxes but I haven't gotten them dialed on flat ground, yet. The only changes I have made are some odyssey clear brake pads and a stolen top load stem to raise the bars a touch. I get a lot of good feedback on the look of the bike with the flat black and gold wheels. I was a little worried about the Eastern parts due to some reviews online but Read More »

2014 Fit MAC 2 Bike

“Solid bike”

C138_2014_fit_mac_2

The Good:

I got mine in December 2013 and it's still running solid (almost three years later) one of the best stock bikes I've ridden and just gets better the more you upgrade and bond with it.

The Bad:

The sprocket warped in about three weeks, but it was probably my fault as I was learning crankslides at the time. Replaced the sprocket with an S&M tuffman and haven't had any other problems.

Overall Review: Great bike for anybody who loves riding as much as I do.

Stolen TwentyTwo Cranks

“Solid cranks”

C138_team22_crank_raw

The Good:

Never an issue only reason I am no longer running them is because I needed some shorter arms

The Bad:

Not available in 165mm, and that isn't necessarily bad but in my case it was.

Overall Review: Would run these again. Affordable quality product with a lifetime warranty!

FBM Nice Nylon Pedals

“Nice pedals (see what I did there?)”

C138_nice_nylon_pedals_detail

The Good:

Decent grip, slide well, last a good amount of time compared to other nylon pedals

The Bad:

They aren't gnurled at all, so with waffle soles your feet do move about a little still. The pins give a good grip though

Overall Review: I wore down to the bearing on a pair of nylon odyssey twisted pedals at my favourite spot in one ride. I've been there a few times with these and there's still plenty of life on the sliding side (I only slide on one side of my pedals, so I've always got a grippy side). I was expecting them to wear quicker. The only thing I don't really like is the lack of gnurling, meaning your feet do still have a bit of movement, but that will depend on the sole of your shoe too

BSD Front Street Front Hub

“Bsd frontstreet pro”

C138_bsdproductshubsfrontstreet0013colours

The Good:

Looks very nice.
Bolts that come with it are strong
Has the option for Hub Guards

The Bad:

I had this hub for a year and within the first month the bearings had already worn out, i figured it wasnt that big of a deal because id been smashing smith grinds constantly for a week but i got new bearings from my local bearing shop and they also popped close to a month, ended up going through 7 sets of bearings and I guess they could have all been dodgy but the hub might need bigger bearings.
The guards that came with it bend a deformed very easy, within a month, I replaced them after since they were rubbing on spokes and stopping the wheel from moving smoothly but they didnt last much longer. I dont mash hubguards either my current wheel (cinema vx front) has barely any dents or chunks out of the guards. Might just be me but 2 of my friends had the same problem.
Bolts binded to the hub even with grease, same with the cone nuts.

Overall Review: My experience has been bad with bearings but the axle hasnt broken. I have hammered the wheel and the axle has held up, very impressive but apart from that it seems to be personal problems with the hub as the other reviews said their hubs were flawless.

BSD Giraffic Handlebars

“Bsd Reed Stark Giraffic Bars”

C138_bsdproductsbarsgiraffic003.jpg.pagespeed.ce.kbgnxyrdth

The Good:

-Very comfortable bars
-Good for barspins
-Pretty strong
-look stunning
-Stickers have lasted a while

The Bad:

nothing yet

Overall Review: Had these bars for a solid year and a half, have had a tonne of crashes on these and thrown my bike a fair bit. These bars have been fantastic for me, I've sent these down a 10 stair a handful of times and even dropped if off a roof on accident but they have held up. Mine have developed a slight offset on the right but thats because im a little bitch who throws his bike. Would recommend these to anybody whose just broken their bars or bent a pair.

Stolen Talon Cranks

“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
