WTP Zodiak FC

Rating:
The Good:

Cool looking, solid frame, good cranks

The Bad:

Tail heavy with the free coaster hub, knarl on bars is not very deep or aggressive could cause bars to slip, tires are poor quality as they have high spots on them causing hop

Overall Review:

I purchased the zodiac to add to my collection of bmx bikes because I loved the 4 piece bars and the white tires, I also wanted to try a free coaster. My over all impressionsis the bike is decent but maybe not the best bike you could get at this price. The frame and fork are very solid, no creaks or bends but I did upgrade the bars to a set of S&M 4 piece bars as the knarl on the stock bars is not very deep and can slip in the stem if you have a hard landing. Another thing I noticed is the free coaster does make the bike seem a bit tail heavy so bunny hops will need some more muscle to level them out, needless to say I don't think I will buy another free coaster bike. I also noticed that the tires do have some hop  to them  so its not the smoothest ride but its not anything really bad. Overall its a decent bike and I do enjoy riding it but I think it does need some work. I personally prefer FIT or Sunday bikes but I would consider buying another WTP in the future, just not one with a free coaster
