2016 WeThePeople Atlas 24" Bike

“I love this bike”

C138_2016_wethepeople_atlas_24

The Good:

It feels and rides smaller than it is. There's lots of room but it's still easy to throw around. Very comfortable smooth ride.

The Bad:

The stock tires are terrible for anything other than dirt. The propeller brake pads suck balls. Horrible. They squeal like a pig no matter what you do with the toe in and you are either in useless squealing pig but not stopping mode or locking up the wheel.

Overall Review:

This bike is a lot lighter than I thought it would be. The way bikes are made now is way different than how they were overbuilt when I was riding 20" bikes all the time. I bought this thing to ride with my kid and I take to race tracks, pump tracks, skateparks and all over town. It's pretty easy to bunny hop, the gearing is perfect, it's easy to throw around and it's very comfortable to ride. The stock tires and brake pads kinda suck so I replaced the tires with KRADs and the brake pads with black mountain bike pads. They don't squeal like a pig and they work perfectly. I also didn't like the seat but its not a bad seat, I Read More »

2017 Verde Neyer Pro

“Very good complete”

C138_2017_verde_neyer_pro_matte_black

The Good:

Solid frame
Good parts

The Bad:

The brakes suck, so I took them of. All they do is slow you down anyway.

Overall Review:

I like this bike. It is a solid buy. But basically all of the verde regent parts are cheaper parts. I love the geometry though.

Shadow Conspiracy Super Slim Knee Pads

“Good so far”

C138_103_06006_supperslimkneepads_back2_black

The Good:

Reasonably priced
Offer decent protection
Low profile

The Bad:

Small sizing. 5'7" 155lb should have been medium by measurements. Large is snug, but fits well.

Overall Review:

Just received these and slammed my knee off the stem. No pain. Gave me the confidence to start learning more tricks.  Good quality so far. Will see how they hold up. A little hot but not brutal. Offer good protection so far. Haven't ate shit with them yet but a couple of knee smashes.  Shadow brand so of course it's good stuff.  Fits under pants no problem. Noticable if you were wearing girl (skinny) jeans. Regular pants you can hardly tell.

2018 Kink Downside Bike

“Solid nice bike”

C138_bike_downside_k465raw18_3q

The Good:

Solid starter bike, comes with a freecoaster, and tires have great grip

The Bad:

Weighs 26.5 pounds stock

Overall Review:

I love the bike made a couple changes to some of the parts and it feels super solid as is.

Federal Perrin Frame

“Easy control”

C138_perrin_dropout

The Good:

Short and easy to control

The Bad:

Weird decal

Overall Review:

nice frame for short guy like me (170cm),make me feel comfort to control the difficulty of technical skill. Easy to manual,easy to bunnyhop,easy to spin. if its 20.5 TT would be better cuz the geometry is still not too massive for technical style. weight for this frame is just nice. I did my flat 360 on the first day i use this frame.

Guerra Martyr Frame

“Guerra Martyr”

C138_v11_141

The Good:

Light weight, stiff, and the price.

The Bad:

Longer chain stays.

Overall Review:

I got this frame 6 years ago before the company went belly up. Very good frame. The only change I would make is to make the chain stay 13'' slammed. I wish Guerra/Ezra would come back, I have Ezra cranks, bottom bracket, pedals, bars, chain. The chain was the only part I was not happy with.

FBM Nice Nylon Pedals

“Good in the trails”

C138_nice_nylon_pedals_detail

The Good:

Dont hold all the dirt as they aren't knurled,
Last long
Not too grippy, allows you to actually get off your bike, especially when looping out

The Bad:

Not the grippiest, if you like really grippy pedals, imo there perfect for me

Overall Review:

I went for these pedals as they aren't knurled, basically dont have the tiny little cross patterns a bit like what you see inside of most stems or where the bar is clamped to the stem. The reason i didn't want the knurling was because they collect dirt and becomes really annoying and a lot less grippy, especially for trail riders.

BSD Donnasqueak Tire

“Decent in the street.”

C138_bsdproductstiresdonnasqueak005.jpg.pagespeed.ce.yq8bllak_7

The Good:

Grippy, good even on dirt
Last you what you would expect from a tyre
Better with the punctures than the average
No problems with the side wall. They do squeak, people say they dont, you just need the right type of surface!

The Bad:

Not the fastest, definitely not the slowest
A few cuts and nacs in parts

Overall Review:

So I bought this tyre, not for the squeak cos thats a bit sad, but first off they do squeak, people are complaining that they dont but thats probably because they can't 180 or dont have the right type of surface. So its a lower tpi tyre, so you would expect longer wear time, in which this definitely reaches that. And due to the lower tpi, you dont get the highest speeds but really not a product kill and ive only had one puncture, a thorn but I cant see much tyres stopping that because I had a branch jammed between the wheel and the forks. Everything else is good, Except there are a few tiny holes wear the tyre has somehow opened, its tiny so you wont really notice it. Also, the grip is great aswell, never slipped out. It did have that weird coating when i first got it.
