Eclat Burns Stem

“Tallyho its a keeper”

The Good:

Good hardware, solid bolts, strong and substantial, imagine it should last years.

The Bad:

Nothin yet

Overall Review:

Not too rised 50mm reach feels good looks tight

Odyssey Calibur Cranks

“Bad cranks”

The Good:

Comes with bb, 160€ is not much for cranks

The Bad:

Cracked, got some play after a while

Overall Review:

i bought these cranks in the first week they came out, i was very excited on these cranks. I rode the first pair for around 6 months then i bought a second pair (shorter cranks), i mounted the “old” pair on my dirtjumper. After riding the new set for 7 months, the right crankarm cracked at the pedal. Then when i checked the cranks on my dirtjumper, i saw that pair was cracked at the same place. I got one new crankarm for the newer cranks. The cranks also developed wobble after a while.

2016 WeThePeople Arcade Bike

“Bad review ”

The Good:

Was really good before frame snapped

The Bad:

The wtp brand must have shitty welds or the one I bought had shitty welds it was half welded where it snapped for me 100% do not recommend these expensive shit bikes

Overall Review:

Good bmx besides and dimensions but the welds are absolutely ass 

Volume DeMarcus Paul War Horse Frame

“Good frame ”

The Good:

Super responsive, strong, the blue thunder color is amazing

The Bad:

Not much just not for me

Overall Review:

I wanted to try out a super tech, street frame and this is that. I traded it for a fit Mac v2 because I prefer a longer back end to my bikes. 

Kink SXTN Frame

“Kink makes a damn good frame”

The Good:

Quality 4130 Sanko Chro-mo, nice welds/attention to detail- option to run stopping device other that your vans - spot on geometry & it's not heavy but no so light that you worry after sending it. Color options like translucent blue and raw with clear coat or black make it look as good as it rides.

The Bad:

Not made in America

Overall Review:

This Frame is about as close to perfect as you are going to get anywhere! If you are a Street animal bent on destruction and flat landings get the Kink Contender, but if you are even a little bit smooth then you need this bike in your life. Perfect for trails, park and the occasional street session.

Redline Device Rear Rear Hub

“Redlines decent price hub”

The Good:

Price, burley axel, easy to service & replace worn parts, sealed.

The Bad:

Heavy, ugly, no longer available.

Overall Review:

I'd stock up on 'em if I found a shop selling them cheap. Mine lasted years without any problems. Street riders may not like them but if you don't ride like you are on a mission to destroy everything in your path you will be just fine. 

S&M Speedball Tire

“Slick though too slick ? ”

The Good:

Fast, as the name tells

The Bad:

Almost too slick tho, at sub zero temp with a tiny bit of snow u slip out too easy, lucky didnt fall worse

Overall Review:

Theyre good for dry summer and smooth stuff but not a versatile investment.

Demolition Rig Tire

“Sick for rough street”

The Good:

Look, grip, durable,

The Bad:

Make em in 2.1 or somethin less then 2.25

Overall Review:

Love em, i have the 2.4 and only wish they were smaller

2018 DK Vega 22" Bike

“Overall solid bike but....”

The Good:

Price: For $449 it is a solid frame- Cromoly -geometry is excellent
Sealed Hubs
Comfortable bars
Good gearing
Looks: Not too flashy but does have subtle graphics
Wise components seem to be doing well- no issues with quality.

The Bad:

Rims- Single walled?! These have no place on a park bike- mine lasted 3 months and that was with weekly tuning- had hops, dents..ugh! Replaced with Revenge double walled which are awesome!
The Stem was an issue for the 1st month- 1st off, it looks cheap and the bars would slip no matter how much I tightened, removed paint, put rubber shim in, you name it. Then they must have "broken in" because the stem now holds firm. Tires- generic thin walled rubber- have good grip but only 60 psi so had pinch flats- replaced with S&M Speedballs.
Stem cap- deformed the 1st time I went to adjust forks- thin metal?

Overall Review:

Overall it's a great bike- so it has a few flaws, replace the tires and rims and it's ready to ride well. The bar geometry can only be monkeyed with so much- I tried moving the bars forward but it threw the geometry off so much I almost flipped over backwards- DK set it right parallel with the front forks. The 22" market is tight and there are limited bikes that are complete ready to ride in this price range. It doesn't have high end components but surprisingly the Wise components have showed no signs of wear or cheapness (other than the stem looks) Don't like black paint? The go with the General Lee- basically the same Read More »

2016 Fit Dugan 1 Bike

“Bought Used But Still A Great Bike!!!”

The Good:

Light Enough But Sturdy, Very Good Quality Welds,Looks Better In Person Pics Don't do It Justice!!

The Bad:

Not Bad But Here's What I've Replaced Bars Premium Whiskey Bar 8in. Heat Treated 13 Butted.... Tires 2.25 Vee Speedster Folding... 38mm O'Day Lincoln Stem since 50mm was too much reach "for me" 5'5"... But This Was Preference And Not Necessary.... But I paid $125 from a skater who badly rode it but it... But it's been a learning curve for me because of the length but I'm not faulting the bike as I knew the the TT before I bought It...

Overall Review:

Great All A rounder With Great Geometry...
