S&M LTF Frame

“Had the LTF back in 08”

The Good:

Super light and had a great balance point for fakies and Manuels

The Bad:

Head set was super weak

Overall Review:

When I lived in Seattle (2008) I bought a brand new LTF with brand new profile cranks from some dude who went into the Army and never got to set it up. I paid em $300 witch was a steal. I loved it. I almost got the Aitkin 3.5 but went with LTF instead cause of the deal the dude gave me. The 3.5 ended up being a shit frame that Fit/S&M just never got right IMO. Unfortunately when I moved back to California at the end of 08 The headset completely split open and it wasn’t under warranty so it didn’t last long :/ but still was a amazing frame The was it built and how light it was 

Odyssey Springfield "U" Brake Kit Brakes

“Great Deal!!”

The Good:

Easy to set up, very good price for the quality

The Bad:

Nothing at all

Overall Review:

I have been running these brakes for a few months and they have been great! Grab pretty well and are totally worth it.

2018 Fit STR Bike

“Great Beginner bike”

The Good:

Crmo Forks, 4 piece bars, good price, and good for beginners

The Bad:

High ten rear triangle, single wall rims, cheap hubs, 8 spline cranks, cheap stock brakes

Overall Review:

I have had this bike for a about a year now and my only problems have been the stock brakes, snapped front axle, and snapping stock pedals. But other than that its held up great. All in all if you are a beginner and don't plan on doing anything huge than this is the bike for you.

Kink Yukon Cassette Rear Hub

“Kink yukon”

The Good:

Engages nice, bearings roll smoothly,takes the abuse.

The Bad:

My drive side bolt wore out pretty quick and needs replaced,too much grease needs about half of what's in there..and there was a lot.

Overall Review:

Would recommend the hub if the price is right, looking for a change up and try something different, not a primo mix but rolls smooth af.

2019 Kink Drifter 26" Bike

“Solid Bike”

The Good:

Full Chromoly frame, fork and bars, with all solid parts

The Bad:

brake pads

Overall Review:

This bike is awesome, I have no regrets purchasing it. I highly recommend this bike for the old school BMX rider that is older and wants the most bang for the buck. This is a high quality bike that rides smooth and has plenty of high quality parts, my only gripe is the brake pads, the stock brake pads are horrible and a safety hazard because they do not fully stop (for my weight I suppose), I replaced them with mountain bike brake pads and now they work great. I plan to replace the sprocket and chain with stronger ones but I am not sure I will ever really need to unless I get pegs and start doing grinds.

2017 Sunday Model C 24" Bike

“Should be called the Model P.O.S.”

The Good:

I can't think of anything good about it.

The Bad:

To long to list everything wrong with it.

Overall Review:

I have never owned a bike that was as big of a piece of crap as this bike. I bent the forks dropping into a bowl. I have replaced every component of this P.O.S. The cranks are scary bad. The topper is Sunday all but told me to F.O. when I inquired about warrenty. The bars and stem are so bad they don't belong on a child's bike. 

MacNeil Fat Capital Seat

“Fine seat shit hardware”

The Good:

Seats tough, clean, prob can withstand much abuse

The Bad:

The pivotal 6mm bolt stripped after one install luckily its not loose its but its gonna be a pain to remove later on. Hope it dsent loosen up knock on wood

Overall Review:

Macneil ur lookin bad i would not recommend simply cause the bolt seems to be very soft aluminum either then that its fine

Eclat Filter Grips

“Ok grips not bad ”

The Good:

Thicker, durable

The Bad:

Dosent handle moisture well and grips fair

Overall Review:

Last fair bit and are somewhat comfy

BSD Safari Pedals

“My Favorite Pedal!”

The Good:

Solid construction. Excellent grip. Takes a beating!

The Bad:

Limited colorways.

Overall Review:

Started riding again after a long hiatus and got a new bike. Went through pedals from ECLAT (Slash), DEMOLITION (Trooper) and THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY (Surface) before trying out the Safaris. I will use these as long as they make them!! They are incredibly grippy, I never feel like I am going to slip. Smooth bearings. I hope they continue them for a long time!!

Odyssey Vermont Sprocket

“I'm it's third owner”

The Good:

Strong! Light Looks nice Cheap Available in weird teeth numbers

The Bad:

Nothing really

Overall Review:

As the title says, I'm the third owner of this sprocket and the bike it's been attached to. It's a bike that's been heavily abused (like thrown and kicked around) and the sprocket has half it's teeth half stripped of the paint. Half! No bends, no cracks and no problems with it whatsoever. Amazing product and if you like the design and don't care about a guard, I can't recommend it enough. It's also available in weird sizes like 23/27/31T, so you can even use it on your MTB SS golden ratio project.
