Alright, i always thought Premium was supposed to make basically lightweight Haros. Originally a brand that was invented for weight weenies. They have only one frame that i think is a true Premium and that is the Guttershark. A lightweight frame for light things and people with no muscles. But i have observed and known for the past years or so that their frames not including the Guttershark, are all over 5 lbs?? I personally dont like Premium, i might ride one, but it is in no way my first choice. I am making this thread to see who hate Premium the most? And am i wrong? Wasnt Premium supposed to be lightweight Haros since Haros were always pretty heavy??

Premium was meant to be the high end line from haro. Supposed to be the premium stuff hence the name. Has nothing to do with weight. And stop worrying about weight. It's a terrible habit. Btw premium is generic overpriced garbage

I'm on the vital legit list!

truthfully i wouldnt ride a premium no matter what. the reason why garrett left to start fiend was because every single trip he would end up breaking his bike.. premium just doesnt care...

I am just bored and lonely right now. That's how 90% of my threads go honestly. Get bored and lonely, go to vital, make a thread, and then im not so lonely. Then the thread goes away. haha Then no one texts me cuz its 4 a.m. and i go ride and then come back and make another thread. haha then people text me. Then i pass out. I have a bad sleep schedule and i stay up all night and sleep most of the day lol

I like their team. Dan Foley is so smooth, if you haven't seen Josh Harrington's latest edit go watch it right now, Connor Lodes is pretty cool to watch, but he's not particularly unique, but he (and harrington i think) promote wearing helmets while riding street, which is good. Sean Ricany isn't spectacular, and of course everyone here hates Chad Kerley.
I've never ridden any of their products, but haven't heard many good things about them. And all their frames have the same geometry.

My 1948's are still going strong over a year later, with my fat ass riding em.

I say they make some decent stuff, BUT it depends on what you ride, how you ride, and how you take care of your setup.

Honestly, EVERY brand will break. Doesn't matter how good they are. It can and will happen. Buy what you like, and enjoy it.

Hell, Before I got my federal I was told it was common to snap it. Still going. Not a single issue.
