Merritt BMX Brian Foster Handlebars

“Blue Falcon powers activate!”

The Good:

Strong and light, great geo!

The Bad:

Not made anymore. I personally want a little more up sweep.

Overall Review:

Buy them. These will give you the powers of the Blue Falcon!

Ezra Freecoaster Rear Hub

“Great Concept, Pretty good hub.”

The Good:

The ability to use it as a cassette or a coaster is great. Multiple slack rings allow you to customize the hub.

The Bad:

Slack rings are made of an oil impregnated plastic and can wear quickly.

Overall Review:

Same as the Salt Plus, Dartmoor and a hand full of other hubs. Great idea for those who want to try a coaster but not commit to it.

Federal Perrin ICS Frame

“Great frame. ”

The Good:

Overall good quality, nice geometry for street, colour and size options all good.

The Bad:

The chain tensioners are a little lack luster like 99.9% of integrated chain tensioners.

Overall Review:

Sweet frame. Feels stiff but not clunky. Light and strong, and geo that isn't too extreme in either direction.  Been a delight to ride so far. 

Dia Compe Tech77 Lever Brake Lever

“The only lever that should be made.”

The Good:

Very smooth, perfect length, strong.

The Bad:

no other company has made anything better.

Overall Review:

15 years strong! That is proof enough that this is the best lever made.

Mission Cease Brakes

“Low price, huge power!”

The Good:

Cheap, great straddle cable, loads of power!

The Bad:

They snap.

Overall Review:

Love these brakes but I have issues with the brass bushing shattering and the arms braking off after just a few weeks of use. Granted I am a big guy 6'6" so that may be why I broke them so often.  Still for the price they are great!

Eclat Talon U Brakes

“Huge bang for the buck.”

The Good:

Very stiff, loads of tire clearance, easy to set up

The Bad:

May interfere with your sprocket....

Overall Review:

For the $$$ these are by far one of the best brakes on the market. Easy to set up, smooth and great power!  The only issue is that depending on your set up they may rub your sprocket and require some modification.

Sunday Solar Bar Handlebars

“Not very good”

The Good:

They work i guess. Look nice.

The Bad:

Heavy and cost alot.

Overall Review:

They come on the 2018 sunday soundwave and they weigh half as much as my frame. I cut over 1.3 pounds with different bars. No joke they cost 79.99 and chrom is 10 more.

2015 WeThePeople Reason Bike

“Great bike”

The Good:

Great overall bike without breaking the bank.

The Bad:

Pegs that comes with the bike looks generic.

Overall Review:

Great bike for beginners like me. Overall it’s worth the price. 

S&M BTM Frame

“S&M BORN TO MOB!!”

The Good:

This frame is rode by the man himself, Mike Hoder, so right off the bat you know this thing shreds heavy, and indeed it does with ease might I add, I've owned this frame for two years now and am the 3rd person to own it (bought it used from a friend who switched to the Street Sweeper) and the only significant damage it's received is small bits of rust, it's a VERY burly and well balanced frame with that 13.05 backend slammed (the only way it should be rode in my opinion) If you`re an angry bmxer that likes to throw their bike when it takes you 30 tries to land a hop 3 this is the frame for you, if I could describe this frame in one word it would be either ``Strong`` or ``Burly`` as this frame laughs in the face of dents. With the 21`` tt option this thing is a dream for manual tricks as it locks in perfectly unlike most ``street`` frames nowadays. 4130 American made Chromo frame so you know it`s light and strong as hell.

The Bad:

If its wet outside don't even bother riding (not that you should anyways) as the clear coat and paint bubble, peel, and spider crack if there are any scratches on the frame, or do yourself a favor and strip the shitty paint job off and repaint with nice paint like I did. If you run pegs such as the Merritt GFE pegs be aware as the dropouts do stick out past the peg a tiny bit. If I could change one thing specifically it would be the standover height on the seat tube and headtube as it`s a tad short for us taller rider`s but not a huge issue. and last but not least if you`re a petty weight weenie and need a frame under that 4 pound range don't bother as this is a real man`s frame (it`s an S&M so its kinda heavy kinda not)....

Overall Review:

So if you like bombing hills, abusing bikes, landing sketchy and somehow riding away from it, this is the frame for you,just imagine this frame as a big comfy couch that has wheels and a handle bar. If Chuck Norris rode bmx this would be his frame of choice, two thumbs up for this one! great colour ways as well :)

Colony Headset Spacer

“Needs to be aluminum!”

The Good:

Cool, innovative, adjustable, cheap.

The Bad:

Weak, exposes steerer tube.

Overall Review:

Make it out of a stronger material and make it so there is maximum surface contact area and this might be a winning idea. Mine crushed the very first time I tightened it and I dont torque mine down, I just tighten till there is no play...
