Ive seen a ton of kink bars and forks snap. Kink tries too hard to make their products light, they use thinner materials and butt/taper them to hell. I would avoid those. And the stem is more of a budget stem, though its a nice one, but definitely not the best.

The stem doesn't slip from when I had it.. My bars where completely stripped and the stem didn't slip once and if your wondering how you strip a stem.. It's when you wear down the little bumps that are so post to help your stem grip to the bar more..

kink forks tend have a shitty reputation for snapping.
dont know anything about their bars really
i agree with the above statement that the stem is really a budget stem. its forged not machined. never seen that particular one snap, but sunday freezes are kinda known for snapping, and those are also forged.

if youre just gonna fool around on it or not ride it hard that stem should be fine for you. of the budget stems its probably the best. cant speak for those bars tho.

Yo ive got some custom trans blue Odyssey Lumberjack bars and some black Mutiny Glam v2 bars if youre interested in buying them for cheap. And I know Chuck on here is selling some S&M Pitchfork forks pretty cheap aswell.

I have Kink Lynx bars which are pretty much the same as the wolf's just a little smaller. They were released at the same time I think. The Lynx's are so nice, I love them. They are the best bars I have owned and I really doubt they are ever going to break on me.

Personally I can't afford to buy the best parts.

Maybe their mummy and daddy don't spoil them as much as yours?

As for kink I've seen badger bars last a long time, no info on forks or stem though.

I snapped a dropout off my foundations and cracked both dropouts on my empires. Kink replaced them no problem. Roman is a good dude. As for bars I have owned badgers, lynx, and wolfs and they were all dope and last a year or more and are still being ridden

I seek progression, not perfection.
