2010 Verde Vex

“The bike is great (purchased used from CRAIGS)”

2010 Verde Vex

The Good:

The frame is awesome (reinforced gussets)

The Bad:

wheels / forks

Overall Review: I bought this bike used on CRAIGS List. The bike was rode hard, but still pretty much intact.  The front forks were bent, so just ended up getting new forks for DANSCOMP.  The geometry is great.  The bike has a 20.25 TT.  The GOOD: FRAM is solid.  The frame has reinforced gusset which makes the frame very solid.  Never flexed, creek, or gave me any issues.  I’m 280 and it handled me very well.  The best part of this bike is the Frame.  Bars are ok, but frame was very solid!  The orig wheels were terrible.  (I replaced with double walled from DansComp) Forks were weak, (bought used and forks were bent, I replaced from DansComp

2012 Eastern Bikes Traildigger Bike

Animal Kotulak Multi Tool

“Best Multi Tool you can get!”

Animal Kotulak Multi Tool

The Good:

Everything! But 1 thing for me

The Bad:

Can be kind of annoying carrying around without a backpack.

Overall Review: Ok so I’ve been testing these multi tools lately. This one is one of the top 3 I used. I know the shadow tools chain breaker works on half link chains. And I think it works specifically with their chains. The animals chain breaker is great. And if you need another pin in case you “mushroom” the one you have, just contact customer service and they will send you another one. The customer service is awesome. Overall this tool is number 2 on my list. I’m still lookin go for that 1 spot. 

Animal Mike Hoder 710 by KMC Chain

“Great Chain! ”

Animal Mike Hoder 710 by KMC Chain

The Good:

Strong, Durable, Comes with halflink preinstalled, easy to install, Heat Treated, Style, etc..

The Bad:

Only is currently offered in 1 Color!!

Overall Review: This chain is basically the KMC 710. Which I own as well. They are great chains. I’m not a half-link type person. So this chain is perfect for me. Way stronger than the 410 and the 510. It’s not that heavy. Some might think it is. But overall it’s a great chain. I just wish you could get different colors. What I think could be the difference in this chain vs. the KMC 710 is the Hoder chain is stamped with animal logos, it’s heat treated to make it stronger, and that’s about it. I have never broken a 710 or this chain. I’m a bigger guy and I ride hard sometimes. So if your looking for a reliable and strong chain. Go with this!!! 

Animal Edwin Grips

“Great Classic Grips”

Animal Edwin Grips

The Good:

They are Edwins signature grips! Classic OG design, soft(but not too soft), great feel, durable

The Bad:

Feel kind of cheap new

Overall Review: It is hard to review grips to suggest for others. Because everyone has their own personal preference. Some people like really thick and soft grips. And some like thin and something with a harder compound, ETC. These are I would say “Medium-Soft” grips. Not too big or long. They are basically a middle ground grip. But the pattern on the grips I have to say is the best thing for me. Very grippy and comfortable. It’s all up to what you like. 

Animal Foursome Handlebars

“4 Piece Beast!!”

Animal Foursome Handlebars

The Good:

100% Heat Treated Chromoly 4 piece design, strong, great customer service with animal!

The Bad:

I’m old so I’m not going to complain about anything 😂

Overall Review: I’m a mid school rider that’s just getting back into BMX. I can tell you from experience and my own opinion that these bars are great. I’m not sure if they are “butted” but they are heat treated. They are straight gauge so they are going g to be strong. The price was not bad either. $70 for the black and $10 for the chrome. If you want a solid and great 4 piece bar these are the ones to go with. 

BoneDeth LEOPARD VIBRATOR PIVOTAL Seat

“It’s a Seat! ”

BoneDeth LEOPARD VIBRATOR PIVOTAL Seat

The Good:

It’s a seat! Comfortable, perfect size!

The Bad:

Does not vibrate! 😂

Overall Review: This seat is rad. It’s unique and not for everyone. I’ve had mine for 3 months now and it’s held up fine. I mean it’s a seat. Most of the time I’m not even sitting on it. 

Fit Indent 24 Cranks

“Great cranks for the price!! Just missing one thing”

Fit Indent 24 Cranks

The Good:

Full Chromoly 3 piece 24mm 48 spline, very strong, about everything is good no issues. Comes with BB kit all for $160 you can’t beat that for what your getting.

The Bad:

That they have discontinued these! And They have moved on to the Blunt cranks which look similar but I think they may have improved the design of the indent and just carried it over to the blunt.

Overall Review: Overall if your looking to upgrade on a budget these are the way to go. If you don’t like the brand the logos come off real easy. They are only stamped in the inside of the crank arms with “FBC” that would be the only way to tell that they are fit cranks. Other than that the weight feels good, the strength is great. They came in 3 colors White, Black, and chrome or polished. What this really needs is the crank installation tool with it as well. I would pay an extra $10 or $15 just to have that included. If your like me and Look for quality and great price just grab these. You won’t be disappointed 

Fit Dugan Frame

“Best frame I’ve rode.”

Fit Dugan Frame

The Good:

Lightweight. Super strong, amazing dimensions.

The Bad:

ZERO, nothing bad to say.

Overall Review: I’ve had many many many frames over my lifetime and this frame is a beaut. It’s been nothing but perfect for me. I run a 20.75 and the frame feels a million dollars. My favourite frame, my 2nd being the Sunday 3rd Wave 2011.  I just don’t know the year that the frame was manufactured in, if anyone knows??

Subrosa Thunderbeast Frame

“Amazing frame 100% recommend ”

Subrosa Thunderbeast Frame

The Good:

perfect neutral geometry

The Bad:

no chain tensioners

Overall Review: I have this frame with the graphics in 20.75tt, I ride a mix of everything and this frame is perfect for that type of rider. Its nice and stable while also been responsive enough to do technical tricks. It comes around nice for whips and is easy to spin big jumps on. I would genuinely get another one of these frames if mine gave up and the only complains I have are that it has no chain tensioners and is quite heavy. (i also run three pegs and a gyro)
