2015 WeThePeople Reason Bike

“Great bike”

The Good:

Great overall bike without breaking the bank.

The Bad:

Pegs that comes with the bike looks generic.

Overall Review:

Great bike for beginners like me. Overall it’s worth the price. 

S&M BTM Frame

“S&M BORN TO MOB!!”

The Good:

This frame is rode by the man himself, Mike Hoder, so right off the bat you know this thing shreds heavy, and indeed it does with ease might I add, I've owned this frame for two years now and am the 3rd person to own it (bought it used from a friend who switched to the Street Sweeper) and the only significant damage it's received is small bits of rust, it's a VERY burly and well balanced frame with that 13.05 backend slammed (the only way it should be rode in my opinion) If you`re an angry bmxer that likes to throw their bike when it takes you 30 tries to land a hop 3 this is the frame for you, if I could describe this frame in one word it would be either ``Strong`` or ``Burly`` as this frame laughs in the face of dents. With the 21`` tt option this thing is a dream for manual tricks as it locks in perfectly unlike most ``street`` frames nowadays. 4130 American made Chromo frame so you know it`s light and strong as hell.

The Bad:

If its wet outside don't even bother riding (not that you should anyways) as the clear coat and paint bubble, peel, and spider crack if there are any scratches on the frame, or do yourself a favor and strip the shitty paint job off and repaint with nice paint like I did. If you run pegs such as the Merritt GFE pegs be aware as the dropouts do stick out past the peg a tiny bit. If I could change one thing specifically it would be the standover height on the seat tube and headtube as it`s a tad short for us taller rider`s but not a huge issue. and last but not least if you`re a petty weight weenie and need a frame under that 4 pound range don't bother as this is a real man`s frame (it`s an S&M so its kinda heavy kinda not)....

Overall Review:

So if you like bombing hills, abusing bikes, landing sketchy and somehow riding away from it, this is the frame for you,just imagine this frame as a big comfy couch that has wheels and a handle bar. If Chuck Norris rode bmx this would be his frame of choice, two thumbs up for this one! great colour ways as well :)

Colony Headset Spacer

“Needs to be aluminum!”

The Good:

Cool, innovative, adjustable, cheap.

The Bad:

Weak, exposes steerer tube.

Overall Review:

Make it out of a stronger material and make it so there is maximum surface contact area and this might be a winning idea. Mine crushed the very first time I tightened it and I dont torque mine down, I just tighten till there is no play...

S&M LTF Frame

“Had the LTF back in 08”

The Good:

Super light and had a great balance point for fakies and Manuels

The Bad:

Head set was super weak

Overall Review:

When I lived in Seattle (2008) I bought a brand new LTF with brand new profile cranks from some dude who went into the Army and never got to set it up. I paid em $300 witch was a steal. I loved it. I almost got the Aitkin 3.5 but went with LTF instead cause of the deal the dude gave me. The 3.5 ended up being a shit frame that Fit/S&M just never got right IMO. Unfortunately when I moved back to California at the end of 08 The headset completely split open and it wasn’t under warranty so it didn’t last long :/ but still was a amazing frame The was it built and how light it was 

Odyssey Springfield "U" Brake Kit Brakes

“Great Deal!!”

The Good:

Easy to set up, very good price for the quality

The Bad:

Nothing at all

Overall Review:

I have been running these brakes for a few months and they have been great! Grab pretty well and are totally worth it.

2018 Fit STR Bike

“Great Beginner bike”

The Good:

Crmo Forks, 4 piece bars, good price, and good for beginners

The Bad:

High ten rear triangle, single wall rims, cheap hubs, 8 spline cranks, cheap stock brakes

Overall Review:

I have had this bike for a about a year now and my only problems have been the stock brakes, snapped front axle, and snapping stock pedals. But other than that its held up great. All in all if you are a beginner and don't plan on doing anything huge than this is the bike for you.

Kink Yukon Cassette Rear Hub

“Kink yukon”

The Good:

Engages nice, bearings roll smoothly,takes the abuse.

The Bad:

My drive side bolt wore out pretty quick and needs replaced,too much grease needs about half of what's in there..and there was a lot.

Overall Review:

Would recommend the hub if the price is right, looking for a change up and try something different, not a primo mix but rolls smooth af.

2019 Kink Drifter 26" Bike

“Solid Bike”

The Good:

Full Chromoly frame, fork and bars, with all solid parts

The Bad:

brake pads

Overall Review:

This bike is awesome, I have no regrets purchasing it. I highly recommend this bike for the old school BMX rider that is older and wants the most bang for the buck. This is a high quality bike that rides smooth and has plenty of high quality parts, my only gripe is the brake pads, the stock brake pads are horrible and a safety hazard because they do not fully stop (for my weight I suppose), I replaced them with mountain bike brake pads and now they work great. I plan to replace the sprocket and chain with stronger ones but I am not sure I will ever really need to unless I get pegs and start doing grinds.

2017 Sunday Model C 24" Bike

“Should be called the Model P.O.S.”

The Good:

I can't think of anything good about it.

The Bad:

To long to list everything wrong with it.

Overall Review:

I have never owned a bike that was as big of a piece of crap as this bike. I bent the forks dropping into a bowl. I have replaced every component of this P.O.S. The cranks are scary bad. The topper is Sunday all but told me to F.O. when I inquired about warrenty. The bars and stem are so bad they don't belong on a child's bike. 

MacNeil Fat Capital Seat

“Fine seat shit hardware”

The Good:

Seats tough, clean, prob can withstand much abuse

The Bad:

The pivotal 6mm bolt stripped after one install luckily its not loose its but its gonna be a pain to remove later on. Hope it dsent loosen up knock on wood

Overall Review:

Macneil ur lookin bad i would not recommend simply cause the bolt seems to be very soft aluminum either then that its fine
