Kink Bedlam Sprocket

“kink sprocket”

C138_sprockets_bedlam_back

The Good: Great sprocket, really thick

The Bad: not really anything, every once in a while, it will skip a link but that's only because my chain isn't tight so its not a con

Overall Review: great sprocket , got it in black 28 tooth from my friend for 5 bucks, its my first 28 tooth and its really good, i would get it if your thinking about it, kink makes really good products for the most part

Shadow Conspiracy Little One Pegs Pegs

“Shadow Little ones”

C138_103_06303_tsc_littleonespegs_black_single

The Good: Strong, made well, chromoly, slide well

The Bad: don't make sleeves for these pegs

Overall Review: They're great pegs, got them from a friend and theyre really good, theyre really durable, unlike the primo pegs which are made from aluminum, if you wanna start grinding , get these pegs, you wont regret it

Fit BF Stem

“Fit BF Stem”

C138_stem_bf_blk_lt_lrg

The Good: Awesome stem,I have had it for probably a year now and its been strong, hasn't slipped since i got it

The Bad: the bolts surface rust but that's not really a con , so nothing really.

Overall Review: I had the eastern choker before this and it slipped a ton, when i got this from eastern boarder, i loved it, it didn't slip and i was way more comfortable with a top-load than a front-load , maybe because it wasn't so hunched over , but anyway , this stem is really good,its not the lightest stem out there , so if you really care about weight then i would get something else, but this is a pretty good stem in my opinion, and if your thinking of getting it, do it.

Volume Hatchet Fork

“Da hossboss”

C138_hatchet3

The Good: Strong light fork from volume! They hold up spectacularly against grinds and the drop outs are beefy as hell so you don't have to worry about them bending. They also hold fat tires if you're into big tires, they have plenty of clearance for my hawk 2.4

The Bad: Nothing bad about them yet no dents or anything and I bash into concrete legegs a lot

Overall Review: Quality parts come from quality companies and volume is one of the best out there. I recommend them 100% to anyone

Volume Bourbon Handlebars

“Great handlebars!”

C138_bourbon6

The Good: Durable light strong

The Bad: They are too wide but cutting them down is not a problem at all!

Overall Review: Best handlebars our there with them being 30 inches you have plenty of room to cut down get em'!

2012 MirraCo Blend Bike

“awesome bike”

C138_2012_blend_flatred

The Good: everything on the bike I love the colour of the bike rides nice and its very light

The Bad: the seat is very uncomfortable but can change that no proplem and the grips are that good there ok I guess

Overall Review: this is an overall an awesome bike only thing I don't like about it is the seat and the grips the rest is awesome I recamend this bike but they stoped making this model

BSD Substance Cranks

“solid, look clean”

C138_bsdproductcrankssubstance001.jpg.pagespeed.ce.jp9hctgmzo

The Good: had these cranks since Christmas and not had a single problem. handy to switch between lhd and rhd. paint on crank arms seems to be holding up as i hate the wear marks you get on crank arms after a while.

The Bad: abit tricky to take apart

Overall Review: would highly recommend this cranks to any one

Amber Dorado Bike

“Dorado Complete.”

C138_dorado_angle_front

The Good: I got it for 300$ as a X-mas sale. Full chromo everything , sealed everything , dope build. Frame is like a custom one. Decent parts even though Amber/Ezra are kind of budget parts. I mean for 300$ you can't go wrong. Most parts lasted awhile , frame, bars , seat and front wheel I'm still running !

The Bad: It's actually like 700$ now and they don't even make this model anymore LOL. The stem is pretty garbage ; slipped and stripped all the time. I even BENT it. Rode my headset loose because I didnt know how to maintain a bike then , and my steerer tube ovalized. The back wheel was good but I ran my chain TIGHT and it blew the bearings .

Overall Review: I got a great deal. I wouldn't mind another Amber complete . It lasted a fair bit of abuse and half the parts I still have and are fine. The deal I got was soooo good it was stupid. I'd get it , if you can find one. but at 700$ you can pick up a whole complete for around 400$ more. So a fair bit but fully custom so take that in mind.

Eastern Bikes Codec Frame

“eastern codec frame”

C138_frame_codec_matte_purple_dropout_lores

The Good: really light, geo feels nice

The Bad: cracked the weld under the down tube before the frame was ridden for a year.

Overall Review: It felt like a strong frame but I luckily found the crack on my weld before it was a broken frame, needless to say I'm not buying an Eastern anytime soon again
