Are MafiaBikes bad quality?

Added reply in a thread You guys ever tried mountain bike shoes for BMX? 4/7/2018 8:54 PM

Yea, if I can't feel the bike as much with the fivetens I wouldn't get them. As for DC I haven't really looked into their shoes.

I've had a pair of vans, the vulcanized ones to be exact so I can sort of wrap my foot around the pedal to bunnyhop easier. Only problem is that they wear out fast, I do wear an ankle brace so I'm not really that worried about protection. What do you ... more »

Are there BMX brands that became sell-outs? I'm hearing a lot of bad things about Mafia Bikes. Don't know about Mongoose either, or did they just decide to grab the bottom of the market? The thing is these department store bikes are advertising something ... more »

I'll post some pictures soon once my phone charges up, I looked again and I might be making it sound worse than it really is.

Added reply in a thread How much can I sell a partially CroMo frame for 1/29/2018 7:33 PM

My highest offer I got was $60 for the whole bike without a seat. I'm missing the seat. It's a bit hard for me to accept it since I paid $200 for it back then, but is this realistically the best I'm going to get? I could use this bike for winter, so ... more »

I never serviced my bike, I did dry it off whenever I rode in wet conditions but that didn't cut it. Got the seat tube, driver/sprocket, and chain all rusty. Also those spots where I got scrapes on the frame is rusting. I'm going to invest into some ... more »

I hear the toptube is mostly preference. I rode my friends bikes and from riding a few I'd say I prefer shorter chainstays, but I do like slacker head tubes at the same time since they feel a lot more forgiving idk. When it comes to dropouts and whole ... more »
