2016 WeThePeople Reason Freecoaster Bike

“How we can buy the bmx?”

The Good:

I do not know how to buy it?

The Bad:

I do not know how to buy it?

Overall Review:

I do not know how to buy it?

Shadow Conspiracy Nostra Pedals Pedals

“Had em, loved em, lost em.”

The Good:

Great feel and traction.

The Bad:

A little on the beefy side.

Overall Review:

Wish these were still in the Shadow line up.

Animal Sealed Hamilton Alloy Pedals

“Indestructible ”

The Good:

Everything

The Bad:

No longer made.

Overall Review:

If you like Alloy pedals and find these for a deal, buy them. Legendary status!

Federal Command Pedals

“Only PC I trust.”

The Good:

Built to destroy.

The Bad:

Nothing so far. Some will say it heavy.

Overall Review:

Like the AK pedal but want something lighter and not as costly? They grip like an alloy pedal but don't kill your shoes or shins. Get these, your feet will thank you.

Tree Bicycle Co. Tree Moto Bars Handlebars

“Best damn bar period.”

The Good:

Strong, lite enough, perfet geo

The Bad:

Can be a little wide for some riders.

Overall Review:

Been riding these for years and just recently went to a small bar for a new build. These things can take an absolute beating and keep on trucking. The wide radius bends offer more strength thus lowering the chance of bending.  Lots of up sweep available to keep your wrists from hurting and  you can get them in wood grain.   Get these bars!

Merritt BMX Brian Foster Handlebars

“Blue Falcon powers activate!”

The Good:

Strong and light, great geo!

The Bad:

Not made anymore. I personally want a little more up sweep.

Overall Review:

Buy them. These will give you the powers of the Blue Falcon!

Ezra Freecoaster Rear Hub

“Great Concept, Pretty good hub.”

The Good:

The ability to use it as a cassette or a coaster is great. Multiple slack rings allow you to customize the hub.

The Bad:

Slack rings are made of an oil impregnated plastic and can wear quickly.

Overall Review:

Same as the Salt Plus, Dartmoor and a hand full of other hubs. Great idea for those who want to try a coaster but not commit to it.

Federal Perrin ICS Frame

“Great frame. ”

The Good:

Overall good quality, nice geometry for street, colour and size options all good.

The Bad:

The chain tensioners are a little lack luster like 99.9% of integrated chain tensioners.

Overall Review:

Sweet frame. Feels stiff but not clunky. Light and strong, and geo that isn't too extreme in either direction.  Been a delight to ride so far. 

Dia Compe Tech77 Lever Brake Lever

“The only lever that should be made.”

The Good:

Very smooth, perfect length, strong.

The Bad:

no other company has made anything better.

Overall Review:

15 years strong! That is proof enough that this is the best lever made.

Mission Cease Brakes

“Low price, huge power!”

The Good:

Cheap, great straddle cable, loads of power!

The Bad:

They snap.

Overall Review:

Love these brakes but I have issues with the brass bushing shattering and the arms braking off after just a few weeks of use. Granted I am a big guy 6'6" so that may be why I broke them so often.  Still for the price they are great!
