Anyone own a 2018 Kink Liberty? And if so can you tell me what you think? Thanks

It has some good parts on it and seems to be a very nice bike for the price. The only thing is, it's almost 27 pounds which is quite heavy, but you could make it a little lighter by taking off the brakes.

It's a very nice complete! I recommend it 100%

And as for it being 27lbs, don't worry about weight. I started out riding a 31lb bike and I learned tricks just fine. Geometry > weight

27 pounds has become the new normal weight for a complete it seems like. I noticed last year that all of fits completes went up by 2 pounds in one year. I think it's a good think anyway. With the cheaper manufacturing of completes, a little extra steel will definitely make it stronger, and last longer. Its also because they all have 4 pegs, and a free coaster now. Aftermarket frames and forks have definitely gained some weight the past few years too.

Probably weight of fatter tires now too.

Just buy it, you won't be disappointed. I'm still riding the stock 2015 Kink Liberty Frame and Wheelset.
