Cult 410 Chain

“A good cheap chain.”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_16_at_10.31.35_am

The Good: Doesn't stretch easily.

The Bad: Nothing really.

Overall Review: Same thing as a regular KMC Z 410. If you do grind on the drive side, go for a KMC 410H or 510 HX Dropbuster, both of which will last for ages before something goes wrong.

Cult VANS Grips

“Pretty decent grips.”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_14_at_3.56.27_pm

The Good: They grip well and don't wear out that quick.

The Bad: Some pairs can be quite sticky and too soft, causing more calluses than being soft on the hands. The bar ends are as crappy as the plastic ODI's, so be sure to grab something better bar ends.

Overall Review: A decent grip, but some pairs may not always come out exactly right.

Demolition Machete Tire

“Should stick to dirt only for this.”

C138_img_3116

The Good: It's light and thin for those weight-weenies out there. Lasts good for the first 2 months or so.

The Bad: It's way too thin leading to countless punctures, wearing out too quickly, losing much grip, and possibly blowing out/exploding. Same problems with the Momentum except the Momentum isn't directional, which makes it even worse at slipping out.

Overall Review: This tire should strictly be ridden for dirt or park or something that requires light riding. Not riding like street where rough ledges and obstacles can tear right through the flimsy sidewalls. If you were to ever only have a choice between this and the Momentum, they're still both crappy, but it'd be smarter to take this one in that situation.

Fit F.A.F. Tire

“By far one of the best tires out in the BMX market.”

C138_84113350_1268269372

The Good: The regular 2.25 version takes forever to wear out! It's also grippy as hell! Thick and everything for holding up to street, grinding, and everything else, except maybe dirt.

The Bad: All other sizes and versions suck apart from the regular version in the 2.25 size. They all wear down quicker but still grip okay. This tire is not meant for dirt riding, but it still does the job decently.

Overall Review: I'd say this and the Fly Ruben Rampara tires are the only tires I've ever liked in all my years of biking. They take forever to wear down and are super thick and stay grippy! Hope these stay if the Rampara's are to go, which would be quite sad! :(

SNAFU Anorexic Pedals

“They really grab your shoes!”

C138_2013_snafu_alloypedals_group

The Good: They really grab your shoes

The Bad: they destroy your shoes

Overall Review: I´m using this pedal about 1 year and they keep working normally. I've never had to replace any bearings. The axle are strong but a had to straighten a few times when I hit the pedal on the floor. The bad about this pedal are the pins because they destroy your shoes quickly. But the pins are removables and you can adjust as your necessity.

Eastern Bikes Motley Cranks

“not bad at all”

C138_cranks_eastern_motley_arms_matte_purple_lo_res

The Good: they lasted me 4 years

The Bad: shity spindle bolts

Overall Review: i rode mine hard had them since i started riding they just shitted out on me like 2 weeks ago. when i went to take off my spindle bolts the little piece of shit aluminum bolt snaped off in the spindle that happened to both sides but after 4 year i wasnt expecting them to last very much longer as it was. bought them brand new for 20$ because someone never picked them up on a warrenty for the bike shop.

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
