the dude that made it used to be a welder at s&m. It seemed like he left on bad terms. For a while he had some rank chainstays on his frame that were not bent. I believe he does/did manufacture for cult after solid did

For forks? About $150.

From what I found their forks aren't post-weld heat treated, so I wouldn't get them. In my opinion, Odyssey forks are the only forks worth buying.

I'd throw United Dineros on that list for street shredders, I like the dropout design. I only really trust Odyssey forks anymore though just because I don't want the steerer or fork leg to break. They seem to put a lot more thought into these sections of the fork than other companies. Too many companies seem to focus on good looking invest cast dropouts when it's not even really proven to be better yet. Seems like they just say "Fuck it" to anything above the dropout. 41 thermal lifetime warranty FTW.

I don't like the dropout design of the united dinero's. you'd have problems fitting a hub guard in those.

Eh, they just seem pretty strong.

Now that I look at it, Streams seem pretty damn good. Nice dropouts, nice welds, 24mm cap... only thing they're missing is the lifetime warranty, which is the main reason why I buy Odyssey parts.

I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

primo forks are the worst forks ever. a friend of mine rode the primo kamikaze v3, he snapped it in 2 months in the dropouts.
there is another rider where i live who is sponsored by primo, he has snapped 3-4 pairs of kamikazes in 6 months.
don't know much about the strand but seeing its lighter, i think its most likely going to snap sooner

buy what you want, but I HIGHLY recommend you don't. I remember getting into it with that dude and he was just a douche. he did leave on bad terms a s&m. if you want quality parts that can be trusted just buy s& from the start. this guys a joke
