The Good:

Strong
Beefy
Withstand punishment
Full Street tire

The Bad:

Tire design is bulky.

I have no complaints myself. Everybody says they hate the thread of the tire but its perfect to me. The GLh tire is great but god this tire does damage to the street. Never got a flat with these. Could break a bottle with them and my tube was fine.

Animal GLH Tire

“Legendary Tire”

C138_animal_glh_tire_black_480px

The Good:

Good thread
Good Look

The Bad:

Don't ride in dirty area's

Overall Review:

I rode this tire for YEARS. I loved it... until I moved to a place with dirty street. New Orleans streets are grimier than most. Glass everywhere. Unfortunately these tires can't handle that. Granted, most can't but these are perfect for cities with roads that people take care of.

Animal Akimbo Cranks

“Typical Animal Product”

C138_akimbo_cranks_white_black_lores_1

The Good:

Strong
Sleek
easy to put on

The Bad:

The Grease Pack was trash

Overall Review:

Animal is known for top notch products and the Akimbo cranks are on that list. I can't think of anything bad besides the grease pack. They hold up through the toughest of punishment. I put them through hell and they lasted 3 years before I sold them. It's been 4 years since I sold them and the guy is still using them. And putting them on was easy as hell. No tough splines.

Stolen Silencer Pegs

“Great Grinds Await You”

C138_silencer_combo

The Good:

Smooth
Great Material
Variety of Colors
AFFORDABLE

The Bad:

Too Short for me

Overall Review:

I was in the market to try new plastic pegs after my previous ones keep wearing down easily. A friend, Frenchie, told me to get these. I wasn't disappointed. They are soooooo smooth. They don't wear down fast at all. The only gripe I have is that they're short. But if you are looking an affordable plastic that will last a long time, they're here.

Primo Freemix Pro Rear Wheel

“The one that scared me”

The Good:

.. Nothing at all

The Bad:

Clicked all the time out the box
Not smooth
Crap Rim

Overall Review:

This was my first experience with a freecoaster and it almost scared me away from them. The thing came out the box crap. Slack was trash. Trying to adjust was a hassle. It would randomly catch mid fakie. The rim would bending easily. Get another wheel.

Primo N4FL V2 Front Wheel

“Not the primo I remember”

C138_target300_7e4d0ca1_90_pr01lg

The Good:

... Sorry Guys

The Bad:

Constantly loose.
Hub guards were trash.
rim bent easily.

Overall Review:

Back In the day, i loved primo. Had a great team and the products were sturdy. This wheel kind of flipped that Idea to me. This thing lasted about a month before I switched to another one. The wheel wouldn't stay tight. The guards protected nothing. I felt like I was ripped off. And they still haven't contacted me back about the loose axel.

S&M 10" FU-Bar Handlebars

“This is not a Bar promo”

C138_sandm_fubar_rawclear

The Good:

Fuman on bars.
Charlie rides them
Great specs for a 4 piece

The Bad:

Design is basic

Overall Review:

These are the second pair of 4 piece bars I ever rode. They're dope. The specs on them are what sealed the deal. They ease the pain on my back. The only complaint I have is the design of them. I went from the GT OG bars which had a modern Bob bar look to these. They're no ugly at all. But I like my bars like I like my women. Curves. Best 4 piece out there.
