    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.

    The Good:

    im getting this bike very soon from danscomp and it will be my first lowcut. i love the upgraded Corey Jarman signature model frame. its stronger and better than the previous killorados. the low frame makes t easier to do spin and flip tricks. unfortunately you cant sit down if you have a slammed sit. luckily for me i will have a car very soon so its okay. the bike also comes with Odyssey twisted pc pedals the the path tires. overall a very very good bike FOR PARK. kinda pointless for street though!!!

    The Bad:

    It only comes in one colour
    tires are only 20x125 (too small)

    Overall Review: greatintermediate bike for park riders who whip and spin a lot. many people who break this frames would be riding street so maybe there's the problem... will review again when i get it :)

    The Good:

    really light, strong, not too expensive, feels great especially in air, candy red looks fucking bad ass!

    The Bad:

    Nothing so far

    Overall Review: This is hands down the best frame I've ever rode. Its crazy strong, its survived 11 stair drops, countless hangups, and whatever else could be thrown at it. The geometry feels great. It has long dropouts so I added an extra half link to lengthen the wheel base a wee bit. It rides very well. It's...

    The Good:

    LIght bike, i took all my breaks off and added pegs, and it stood at about 25lbs. Most parts are light

    The Bad:

    No gyro, but who uses breaks?lol. But the bearings are really easy to break, i ended up needing a new back rim. My front rim bent pretty fast too, overall weak rims/bearings. The chain is durable, but in the past 2 weeks ive broke 4 links.

    Overall Review: I do most beginner tricks, Nose manuals, hops, hop 180s,360s, footjam pogos, jam whips g turns ect. the front of the bike is durable, but the insides, not so much. I havent had any problems with the frame forks or handlebars. The pedals were broken within a month of riding. If i were to recommend...

    The Good:

    Very light, attractive, flickable, and feels very good on everything I've ridden on it so far, and one of only two bicycles I found in it's price range that are full chromoly everything.

    The Bad:

    It feels like a slightly smaller bicycle, so taller riders may need to throw some higher ride bars on it before feeling comfortable on it. I also hd small problems rear hub bearing problems, although the warranty is covering those, and I may have just gotten a lemon, still happy with it though!

    Overall Review: Nice bike, feels great, amazingly fun to ride, might be better out there but I am not dissapointed with what I got for the price.

    The Good:

    It doesn't disintegrate when I open the garage door.

    The Bad:

    The rear tire keeps on going flat, and It doesn't disintegrate when I open the garage door.

    Overall Review: My son hates this bike and I can see why. We have replace the rear tube several times and the chain comes off to easily!

    The Good:

    got this bike for christmas.
    nice handlebars. not to big; not to small.
    good color schemes.
    comes blakeless!!!

    The Bad:

    wheels SUCK.
    my cranks started squeaking baaad a few weeks after i started riding it.

    Overall Review: its an alright bike for the price. might wanna get some double wall rims soon unless you dont ride hard at all.

    The Good:

    Light, quite strong and has just a good basic geometry, easy to ride. Overall really good frame and the price is definitely right.

    The Bad:

    Mine has dented some on the chainstay, this is from grinding ledges and rear peg slipping. I wouldn't say it dents easily because I have bashed it pretty hard. But, it dents easier than some of the harder frames out there. Also, brake mounts. for some reason Black Eye chose to have their own custom 990 break mounts, so you have to buy their brakemounts. The bike comes with them but if you lose them then it's very difficult to get replacements. I had to work directly with the owner of Black Eye to get replacement mounts.

    Overall Review: If you are looking for a good all around frame then it's a good choice. If you want a better frame you'll have to pay more. In other words, great frame for the price. I've riden mine for about a year and still no major complaints other than the denting on chainstay.

    The Good:

    it was such a smooth sweet ride. i loved the frame.

    The Bad:

    when doin tail whips off of curbs i bent the rear fork (were the back rim sits) and just a few crashes the frame was all dented up.

    Overall Review: its a nice frame. i would say, only use it for park use. but its still a week frame for hardcore riders. i would give it a 3.5

    The Good:

    very light, I took my breaks and misc off that most people do and my bike was only 24 pounds. Seems pretty sturdy.

    The Bad:

    no gyro, I have heard bad things about Mechanik parts but I have never had any trouble with them.

    Overall Review: I do 360's, footjam tailwhips, 180's, G turns, ect, and haven't had any trouble out of the forks and such so I would reccomend this bike to a beginner level rider.

  • C138_black_eye_killorado_black

    The Good:

    Perfect for the tailwhips, manualing, ect...

    The Bad:

    Completely nothing besides the fact that your friends get jealous when youre the only one that has it and it gets around and then gets stolen

    Overall Review: By far the best frame i have ever ran before. Hopeing to come across another one because it was strong, light, and short. I ride hard when i want and when i dont succes the frame is still up for some more.

    The Good:

    the low standover,the responsiveness

    its only available on one color,but i have painted mine in black so it looks like the v3

  • C138_c2_1_big

    The Good:

    It can take really harsh riding I do loads of flat drops and grinds and it holds up extremely well. I ran full pegs for awhile and it could fit the hub guards on both side easily. Great frame and I recommend it to others

    The Bad:

    Nothing so far that I have found I haven't dented it or anything

    Overall Review: Great frame I recommend to other riders any day and great job blackeye on this frame.
