Animal Mike Hoder 710 by KMC Chain

“Strong and solid”

The Good:

No pins popping out, heavy outer plates

The Bad:

Thinner weaker inner plates, the half link stiffens up leaving a stiff link tried using chain tools to fix but still persisted also halflink has a smaller distance so feels either too short or too long. Chain has a different length then a 510 slighly longer.

Overall Review:

Not as great as i thought but no breaks or real issues. Switched back to 510hx and found the sweet spot on my dropouts. With no halflink With the 710 it felt short or too long so has a different spacing then the 510 regular full link types

Animal MR Top Load Stem

“Not bad one flaw”

The Good:

Everythings good

The Bad:

The hollow bolts will snap eventually especially if you tighten them hard

Overall Review:

Looks cool and hasnt slipped but get solid bolts for it

Demolition Mugatu Sprocket

“Great sprocket as is”

The Good:

Chromoly construction

The Bad:

Nothing yet but a pain to install

Overall Review:

Running it for a over a year and has barely any tooth wear except for black paint just starting to wear. Really sick just what you expect no more aluminum for me just wish it was in 30t as well

BSD Raider Frame

“Holds up not bad”

The Good:

No cracks seems to be solid,.

The Bad:

No brake mounts. standover is a bit tall, loops out easy despite rear end being 13.5.
Compared to a frame with 13.4 cs and 8.25 standover its much easier loop out.
Finish turns rusty but i dont really care.

Overall Review:

I bought it knowing it had no mounts, overtime i realized this is just to make it cheaper. its kind of limiting as if it had mounts u could just not run brakes and it wouldnt look less "clean". Its strong and affordable looks nice but standover is too much imo

Demolition Rig 24mm Cranks

“DONT RIDE DEMOLITION ”

The Good:

Strong, look great

The Bad:

Threads come loose on the spindle, issue with pedal bosses, but the worst of it is that demolition WILL ignore you when you contact them. They won’t even try to help you out.

Overall Review:

Great cranks if you didn’t have to buy threadlocker with the cranks. But don’t by demo because they don’t support the riders. Get some odyssey thunderbolts, odyssey WILL help you and hold up their lifetime warranty. Their warranty is legit. Demolitons is a marketing strategy.

Cult Deathrow Frame

“Cult Deathrow v2”

The Good:

I've had mine for about 4 months and ride the hell outta it daily. I have had not 1 problem with the frame.

The Bad:

The only thing that is bad is that mine never had a serial number on it, it wasnt scratched off. Cops around where I live in Arizona were trying to take it ,because of no serial.

Overall Review:

Overall it's a dope frame. I have nothin at all to complain bout this frame. Its held up to everything I've put it through no problem.

Animal Sealed Hamilton Alloy Pedals

“Great but One flaw ”

The Good:

Everything except...

The Bad:

The pins that are smaller internally hexed fill with dirt and strip easy the tool allen it comes strips too The other pins on it are the more common type and are fine to replace

Overall Review:

Needs better pin design,

Animal GLH Tire

“Tough and pretty long lasting”

The Good:

Durable, hard compound, ran over a big rusty bent nail went through the tread and sidewall but still going without any visible holes, keeps its shape, run at 85 psi the 2.1.
Pulled out lots of glass pieces and no flats ever except for the nail.

The Bad:

Tread is a bit slick but no slip outs yet

Overall Review:

The front tire still has a good amount of tread left, the rear obviously is fairly worn but still going after about a year and a half. Best tire ive run so far works well in all conditions 

2017 WeThePeople Curse FS Bike

Overall Review:

Primo Remix Rear Hub

“One of the best.”

The Good:

Both LHD and RHD options, durable build, easy to work on.

The Bad:

A bit on the heavy side.

Overall Review:

First off, if you don’t like loud and obnoxious sounding hubs, this ain't for you. If you do enjoy them, like myself, then this is probably for you. I recently made the switch to this hub after riding a stock generic cassette from my old complete, and it’s one of the best feeling things I’ve done to my setup. Granted, my review is a bit late as this was released years ago, but it’s stood the test of time. The original owner of my Remix bought it the year it was released. Since then, it’s been through four different owners and two different rims, and now to me. It runs like a champ. It’s never skipped on me, never Read More »
