Eclat Cortex Freecoaster Hub

“Eclat cortex fc ”

Eclat Cortex Freecoaster Hub

The Good:

It Looks good and comes with hubguards

The Bad:

The driver bearings break easily

Overall Review: I’m about 6 months ago I bought the eclat bondi x cortex wheel and I liked it a lot. I rode it for about 2 months and it started to generate play, I looked up the issue, everything was well tightened but the driver bearings were completely destroyed. So I switched the driver bearings for some new ones and everything seemed ok. About two months later The hub began to generate play again... this time I replaced all the bearings in the hub and it was looking good. I’m riding the wheel for roughly 6 weeks and it looks like the driver bearings are broken again.  I think the cortex freecoaster is a great hub in turns of function, it never slips or engages randomly while going backwards, the driver bearings on the other hand are a little weak.  Little disappointed. 

Stolen Revolver Rims Rim

“Great rim for the price”

Mutiny Comb Frame

“True All Terrain Machine”

Mutiny Comb Frame

The Good:

Perfect geometry without being too aggressive or too slack. Half of an inch adjustment on the chain stay allows for a longer rear end in the dirt so you don’t loop out or slam it for a snappy aggressive feel in the streets.

The Bad:

No complaints!! Matte raw finish tends to peel off faster than gloss but that’s common with all matte finishes on frames.

Overall Review: My favorite frame to date. Truly an all terrain machine, from the dirt, to the park, to the streets.  Perfect geometry without being too aggressive or too slack.  Half of an inch adjustment on the chain stay allows for a longer rear end in the dirt so you don’t loop out or slam it for a snappy aggressive feel in the streets.  Best feeling frame on the market imo

2016 Radio Darko Bike

“Great Bike”

2016 Radio Darko Bike

The Good:

Just looks dope... I kept mine out of the sun [when not riding] and it still glows. I got a great price for complete. I ride on dirt jumps and the park- bowels ledges etc. I beat on it a bit locking into grinds and its still solid. I had it w brakes and they were A+. The overall ride was niccccceeeeee. Im the kinda person who just like to change the grips for fun and --- I never changed these grips- they were really nice in the hand. [I rate these as some of my very favorite grips] I have 7 spare grps in my house right now and LOVE the radio stock grips- I would buy these if they were not discontinued. Fun to just cruz on. I <3 this bike!

The Bad:

I dont like the white tires. think it looks bad... when I bought it I'm like I'm changing the tires - before it even arrived [I ride them after burning out an old pair and the white tires ride great/look bad. If they had been black it would have looked so much tougher.... also The tire size is limited. The handlebars come loose fairly often but I maintain it b4 each session so I always check the bolts. This is to be expected w my other bikes also. ------- I did not like the stock pedals- I landed on a dirt 1/4 on a small jump and my foot was on the pedal- I saw it slip off and the pedal got my leg real good. I changed to pedals w metal screws for more grip. - I think the stock pedals were too slippery and I was hurt pretty good. -- see pic on my profile. After swapping the pedals I've ridden much harder and feel very safe.

Overall Review: I have a 2016 21" Radio Darko, neon yellow. I used to BMX / Freestyle when I was a kid and this was the bike I got back into the sport w. It was new / old stock and I got a great price. The overall ride is DOPE<3!! Love it. Fun just to ride. I've been drit jumping and in koncrete park w this. I have been putting it through its paces getting my old tricks back. Im not pro but Ive been coming down on it pretty hard on some landings for a while now and its still feels great. I <3 riding in bowels and the park. super fun. Im 6" 178lbs and its like a perfect size for me. Ive had a few bmx bikes over the years, I currently have Read More »

Colony Wasp Rear Hub

“Better with male axle ”

Colony Wasp Rear Hub

The Good:

Good engagement and sound but the shemale axle is unusable with pegs because of the 3/8 bolt which would attach to your peg

The Bad:

3/8 bolt is way to weak for rear pegs

Overall Review: Really good hub but strange shemale design for the axle.

Eastern Bikes 45/45 Headset

“At $15 even better!”

Eastern Bikes 45/45 Headset

The Good:

The Price - Amazon Prime members can get these for $14.99-$19.99 w/free shipping. The color selection is also nice (better than no selection).

The Bad:

Nothing, nada, zippo

Overall Review: I've purchased these several times. Could be due to Amazon not having any other options (at least not for Prime members). They're simple, easy to install and will give you a clean look.
