Mission Transit Cranks

“Stay away, real riding test”

C138_141885040_1290457360

The Good:

Price...that's the only thing

The Bad:

Everything else

Overall Review:

I was low on cash on my last build. Saw them and thought I would run them for 3months and then have the money for Profiles (my cranks of choice). 1 week, they kept getting loose at the pinch bolt. Put some really good thread lock on the bolts and they seemed ok. 2 weeks, constantly creaking. Took them apart and didn't see anything at first. The issue was small, but no fixable. The spindle was just a mm or so too small so the crank arm creaked under load. That's a manufacturing error but for the price I didn't call. 4 weeks, cracked the non drive arm at the pinch bolt. I am pretty smooth but I do alot of gaps and high ledges. I Read More »

Subrosa Grave Digger Tire

“Good for dirt”

C138_20523582

The Good:

Surprisingly grippy. Thick for what it is worth. If you land on yard rocks you'll be more likely to roll out rather than take the impact. Able to sort of plow through dirt and roll over misc items.

The Bad:

Slower than street tires on street (but this is a given). NOT the best for park. Good for what it's designed for.

Overall Review:

I had this as a front wheel tire. It lasted me as long as my rear street tire did. I rode street and park. I ended up getting some aggressive flats on street. This is not intended for street/park. Don't get it twisted, a street/park tire will suit you far better than the Gravedigger will. This is designed mainly for dirt. Whenever I landed on non-smooth terrain this helped save my ass because it helped me stick landings and roll out. At parks it did more of the opposite and transitition was more of a risk. You can get away with it for street but the tread is so aggressive you'd want this tire for mainly off road shit, Read More »

Kink Titan Frame

“Kink Titan Frame”

C138_titan_frame_bb

The Good:

Looks sweet. Classic geometry with a shorter backend. Antirust coating inside non translucent frames.

The Bad:

Chainstays are too wide. Rear triangle flex is just horrible so cranks dented both chainstays on some sketchy manual 180s and 360s. Lasted about 7 months of light riding then tt cracked on both sides around seatstay junction.

Overall Review: <p>Badly designed frame overall. Works well with a kink cranks, but some others 2pcs dont fit it properly, especially my flexy 175mm odsy thunderbolts. </p>

BSD Front Street Front Hub

“Made for the streets, made to last!”

C138_bsdproductshubsfrontstreet0013colours

The Good:

I love this hub, already had it for about two years and it's AWESOME, bolts and inner axle are strong AF and i'm pretty hard with nosepicks, smiths and hangers, with the correct bearings it spins forever. Oh yeah, and the bsd jersey barrier hubguard it's niiiice af where you need speed on rails and ledges.

The Bad:

The only bad thing I can say about this hub are the cones, they're press fit but it's pretty, pretty hard to take them off to put the hubguard. Annd the stock bearings aren't the best, but get some Primo on them and they're cool (This hub uses the same bearing as the Primo Mix, they're made to last) Besides that, nothing more

Overall Review: <p>Get this hub, Ride this hub, LOVE this hub, it's amazing, strong, light, fast, what more do you want? Also it's BSD, you know it's made for the streets. </p>

Fit CRANKS Cranks

“NICE CRANKS”

C138_fit_cranks_black

The Good:

Some nice cranks on here, I've had them for about 2 years and I haven't got nothing wrong to say about them, I usually ride street more and I'm pretty hard with my cranks
Also, nice look, that Indent shape it's pretty.

The Bad:

The'yre hard to put and take off from the splindle, and the ankle section it's way to long (I already hit on it in a failed feeble and the bolt washer doesn't come off) this is kinda bad if you don' use ankle guards.

Overall Review: <p>I would recomend these to anyone who want some strong cranks, not the lightest on the market but they do their job for sure. </p>

2014 Fit ARF 1 Bike

“A Great Bike But...”

C138_arf_backhub

The Good:

A great bike, it took a lot of falls, crashes and it still held up

The Bad:

The only 2 things I don't like are you have to
1. Take off the breaks (in my opinion I don't like it with the breaks on)
2. It is heavy

Overall Review: <p>Over all it is a great bike I like it a lot. I did a lot of riding with it. I am a bike rider in general so I do a lot of riding and over all great for the city </p>
