hmm if you dont want to grind at all, the vandal because it has better rims. and the hubs are sealed/semi sealed. which should be fine, i would go with the vandal, more sealed, lighter, removable mounts, double walled rims. go with that. or save more and get like a sunday complete or fit complete. high end! haha

cult for sure. that semi sealed shit is garbage. its just a unsealed hub with a randomly placed sealed bearing.


I'm on the vital legit list!

The cult seems the better choice... mainly because its got sealed hubs, the rest of it is the same as the other bike.

So I get the Cult?
Also has chromoly frame and the Vandal has hi ten I guess.
Then the Cult will resist more time right?

Save more money and get a better bike


I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.

Any bike description with "loud rear hub" is a no go. But I'd get a mod ranged kink


I seek progression, not perfection.

Neither. The Cult doesn't even have a Padded Seat or an Integrated Headset, and the Disadvantages of the Vandal have already been mentioned.

I honestly don't think you could of picked any 2 more overpriced Completes than those two.

Yeah I saw that, but others completes are expensive and has kinda same specs ( not all )
I could get the Cult and with the time I could get new and better pieces whenever I need them.
Isn't that good?
