2012 Kink Gap Bike

“Excellent bike”

C138_gap_wintergrey

The Good: The parts last pretty long on it

The Bad: Grips go out fast the front wheel don't last and the back rim breaks easly, the brake cable sucks on it

Overall Review: I've had this bike since it came out and I must say it is one tough bike that can stand a beating. The hubs are good on it just the rims go out pretty quick I had to get my back rim replace because it broke on me and I was never a huge fan of unsealed bearings and the cable for the brakes could be improved more but overall it's a great bike still running strong with me!

Stolen Rebellion Wheels

“Outstanding ”

C138_rebellion_polish_front

The Good: It's light and reliable can take a beating

The Bad: Wish it was just a little bit stronger

Overall Review: Overall this wheel is deffently a good buy it is a trusty reliable wheel I've had this wheel for almost 2 weeks but it's sure holding up good and it handling the beatings pretty good but for sure an awesome wheel!

2013 Black Eye Park Pro Bike

“Its decent ”

C138_black_eye_parkpro_gray

The Good: Its light and has a nice color scheme

The Bad: I had the bike for less than a year and i already had to change out the back rim cranks handle bars and my frame cracked

Overall Review: Its a good starter bike but it cant handle my riding style its meant mainly for park riding and since i get kicked out of parks a lot I ride a lot of street and it cant handle the stress that comes with grinding.

United Mothership v2 Frame

“Best frame for $300”

C138_mothership_frame_all1

The Good: Extremely durable. Orange looks badass. Geo is perfect for my kind of riding. (Which is street) And it's not all that heavy.

The Bad: Absolutely nothing. Despite having tiny paint chips on the seat post when I was trying to put the clamp on, but that was my fault for not taking the bolt out.

Overall Review: This honestly the best frame for it's price, not too expensive but not dirt cheap. It can withstand anything it's thrown at and it will still stand strong. I'm not the lightest rider ever and it's still holding up, even with the impact I put on it. If you're looking for a frame that will last forever, this is it.

2013 DK Cygnus Bike

“Good for a beginner”

C138_dk_2013_web_cygnus_black

The Good: Frame, fork, cranks, chain durability, integrated headset, and the look/design.

The Bad: Grips, height of bars, stem slipsH, front axle strength, no pegs included, seat, tires, unsealed hubs, pedals, and the sprocket bends easy

Overall Review: Starting out, This was my first real BMX bike. It's not perfect but it's good for a beginner. You pretty much need to change the grips, pedals, and seat. The grips rip very easily in only a couple hours of riding. I got super soft odi longnecks and that was the end of the grip issue. The pedals have no grip at all and I reccomend getting odyssey twisted pc's which have all the grip in the world. The seat is nothing more than a piece of plastic so that is also a must change part. Another bad thing is the tires. Their bearable, but like any dirt tires they are thin and lead to flats. Next, the bars are short! Only 8" rise with a front Read More »

Shadow Conspiracy Pivotal Slimmer & Mid Seats

“Awesome seat”

C138_19946647

The Good: Design, comfort, and durability of the fabric.

The Bad: The crow that's stitched into the seat can come out if your rough with it.

Overall Review: This is a great seat overall. I've had it for a few months now and the fabric is in like new condition.  It also doesn't rub you're legs like some other seats do.  Another thing I don't like is the hollow bolt.  Some people say that hollow bolts aren't any weaker than solid bolts, but I feel like it might snap after a hard landing on the seat.  Again, over all great seat and I would recommend it.

Shadow Conspiracy Vultus Handlebars

“Great bars”

C138_tsc_vultus95_chm

The Good: Very strong (hacksaw w/ fresh blade couldn't touch them, had to get the grinder out!)

The Bad: price is (obviously) on the 'crazy' side for 2 pieces of steel tubing, but same can be said for most other bars on the market

Overall Review: Have the 9.5" rise bars and cut their width from 28.5" to 26.5" (i'm not too big and don't like wide bars anyways) Also I've got my stem upside-down, so my 'effective bar height' is actually ~8.75" rise not 9.5"  These bars look sick and I couldn't even touch them w/ a hacksaw with a fresh blade, had to get my angle grinder out to cut them down to 26.5" width.  These are my 2nd set of 'nice' aftermarket bars, the 1st being Fit bars, and honestly I can say that these bars are both great, and not remotely worth the money, but, hey, i'm just cheap!  I've seen aaron ross' orange odyssey bars for $40 in the past couple days on some website, I just couldn't fathom spending $50+ on a set of handlebars! (no, i did not purchase these bars at cost lol)

Shadow Conspiracy Raptor Cassette Rear Hub

“Goood hub man”

C138_21725024

The Good: You can smoke weed through it, it's rly loud and strong even though it has hollow axle

The Bad: I don't grind but I would be scared to snap it if I did

Overall Review: It's a good hub. If you are a pro it isn't the hub for you bc it may snap but if u are a average rider like me you should get it

Demolition Elite Fork

“DAMN FINE FORKS!!!”

C138_img_2412

The Good: light weight, strong, finish is excellent .

The Bad: Nothing at this point.....

Overall Review: I have these forks on 2 of my bikes. The flat black on my park/street bike. These forks are light and the flat black finish is great looking. The offset is perfect. I also have the chrome one on my race bike. Being one of the lightest forks on the market, the forks are even lighter than a lot of race forks. again super light weight, strong and the chrome finish is awesome. I highly recommend these forks to street/park/ dirt jumpers and racers also. In my opinion, THE best overall fork on the market to date.

Division Drive Side Hub Guard

“Strong, although may require customization”

C138_crmo_guard1

The Good: chromoly, thin, strong, loads of room inside, what else do you need?

The Bad: covers a bit too much area, may get in the way of your chain depending on dropout angles.

Overall Review: Love this hubguard, BUT i would not purchase unless you are prepared to do a little editing. depending on what size chain, tension, and frame you run, the guard may obstruct or rub your chain. this can be easily fixed by taking a grinder to it and grinding it as you see fit. personally, i prefer that, because then i can make it exactly the angle and shape i desire, just like most bars come in large sizes with the intention of you cutting them down. may take a bit of work, but it's good for ya (:
