What brands do you gravitate towards to when buying?

As the title suggests, are there any brands that you favour over another when buying new or used parts? Call it brand loyalty if you will.

For me, I always tend to go for Primo, Odyssey and Fit. What about you?

shadow for sure, odyssey and s&m


It’s all bmx

6/27/2020 9:55 AM

Because of the 41thermal warranty I stick with Sunday and odyssey but for wheels and my chain I’ll go with gsport and shadow



6/27/2020 12:35 PM

S&m, profile, gsport/odyssey, eclat, shadow, a bit of fly I’m running their tractor chain and it’s sick as fuck. and fly brakes.

My bike is completely S&M and Odyssey, so that's a bit telling... lol

Growing up I was a big Primo fan and I usually always had a Shadow Conspiracy part, or two. I really hope Primo keeps up with re-releasing their classic parts, though (probably going to pick up one of those Balance seats).

Odyssey, Profile, Primo, S&M, Cinema....

Considering gravity isn’t real none lol



Testimony and apologies

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.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

Odyssey and Profile have been big names since I started riding in the 80s. Over the last few years I looked a lot at We the People, Sunday, Kink and Haro (blast from the past) before going with Kink.


6/28/2020 12:04 AM

S&M, Odyssey/Gsport, Profile, T1, Fly


6/28/2020 12:12 AM

Interesting! One thing is for sure, Odyssey is the shit.

I don’t have a certain alliance to brands, I just look for the measurements and specs I like. I love my Eastern frame and Odyssey & Shadow components though.

FBM, Animal, S&M, Odyssey, GSPORT, T1, Relic, BSD, Maxxis, ...


6/28/2020 5:52 PM

WeThePeople, Odyssey


6/28/2020 6:23 PM

My recent build consists of all Kink/Cult/Odyssey. I like Shadow and Federal but don’t have any of their parts yet. Maybe when something breaks...


6/28/2020 7:44 PM

For me profile and total bmx.


6/28/2020 8:55 PM

Brands? I ain't tripping on brands. I gravitate towards: sealed, chromoly, 110 psi, double wall and more importantly on Sale.

Kink, Shadow, Odyssey & Animal

I take pretty much all logos off my bike or cover them with marker lol. Animal is cool though


45 refs and counting check profile.

I tend to gravitate to whatever brand has the part i want/need.


7/1/2020 1:36 PM

I have like 10 different brands on my bike because I just bought everything used.. I love Animal and Sunday though


Иди сюда и поцелуй меня

Don't care as long as they are 4130, 2pc and have a nice rise.

I've got Mankind, Fly, Vocal, etc.

I think Robbie said it best in Road Fools. "Ewww, 4pc !"


7/1/2020 8:10 PM

I typically build using:
S&M: metal and rubber (frame, forks, bars, tires, grips)
Odyssey/GSport: large mechanical (wheels and cranks)
Shadow: small mechanical (headset, BB, chain)
Eclat: seat and pedals

I came back after 15 years and gravitate towards companies that have stood the test of time like kink, federal, and even tho I dont own any of their parts...animal or demolition

But let's be honest, price plays a huge role..if I can get 2 products with the same dimensions from two reputable companies...I'm going towards saving some money


7/6/2020 9:08 PM

I like Cult, Odyssey, Kink, Fit, Wethepeople, Sunday, Demolition, Eclat, Salt/Saltplus, and Stranger. I mainly prefer Cult, odyssey and stranger though


7/6/2020 10:59 PM

I personally like eclat wethepeople odyssey and fit/s&m I’ve just always rocked there parts and bikes and never had an issue and hold up good


7/7/2020 4:20 AM

I look for decent reviews and what I like at that time, ALSO I try to make sure it isn't a clone of every locals bike. I like to have something less common.

Personally Haro and Federal mainly (due to nostalgia) and secondary comes all the standard popular stuff like everyone else Odyssey, G-Sport, Profile, Primo etc. Ideally I'd get a Haro or Federal frame and then everything else would just be Odyssey, G-Sport and Profile Racing.

7/7/2020 5:07 PM

I have something from pretty much every one I think?

Standard, S&M, Metal (OG and the GFPU frame) 2hip, Stolen, Odyssey, Haro, Demolition, Kink, Stranger, Total, T1, Fly... GT, SE.

I like quality gear. I don't care who makes it really. I can spot a turd a mile off the starboard bow.

I don't see as many Federal bits anymore. Nice to see you're riding some Federal parts!

Though down in Hastings its everywhere, but that's to be expected here.

Most brands are pretty excellent these days, though I always lean toward S&M.
