BSD Donnastreet Tire

“Good tire small defect”

C138_bsdtiredonnastreetblack00134

The Good:

Grips better than I thought it would. Looks awesome on my bsd safari frame

The Bad:

Small bulge causes tire to rub against fork ...wheel is true ..checked it 3 times to be sure it's the tire ..I've never overinflated them so it isn't that. The most pressure they've had is about 90 psi.

Overall Review:

Great tire I think I just got one with a small defect. Back tire is not wearing as fast as I thought it would either for being such a smooth tire already. Great for street and park 

Odyssey Clutch V2 Freecoaster

“Cool ass design!”

C138_odyssey.clutch.v2.freecoaster.hub.polished_06316.1490417077.1280.1280

The Good:

Adjustability, axle strength, looks, comes with hub guard, solid components

The Bad:

Slack adjuster is not made from the strongest material

Overall Review:

Love it. It has really unlocked some ability for me. I was already good at fakies and could go a very long distance but this coaster has made things so much more fluid.

Federal Stance Cassette Wheels

“Street wheels”

C138_federal_wheel_male

They're street af.
They look like motorbike wheels.
They're seriously strong.
The have guards all round.
They roll forever.
Did I mention they're street af?

The Bad:

Nothing, they're quality.

Overall Review:

If you're brakeless 4 pegs get this wheelset and pair them up with CULT Dehart 2.4" tyres.  You'll love em.

Premium Products Skull Seat

“Not too bad”

C138_130174650_1294423649

The Good:

This seat looks incredible. I had the grey/black version and the design is beautiful. It put up with what I threw at it and didn't rip or tear. The picture has lasted as well.

The Bad:

It's not very comfortable. My ass did not like this seat very much. For a padded seat you could've fooled me.

Overall Review:

It's not bad if you don't sit much and want a seat that looks dope as fuck.

2011 Verde Eon

“Decent, but not worth 300”

C138_2011_eon_green

The Good:

Smooth ride, okay breaks

The Bad:

rough front wheel, tiny bars

Overall Review:

The bike is lightweight, but every time I ride off a curb the rim makes a pop noise. First thing I'd upgrade are the tires and the bars because the bars are TINY.

Demolition Dennis Enarson Rig Handlebars

“Top Quality and Killer Paint”

C138_rigbar6

The Good:

Paint, Feel, Strength, Decal Design

The Bad:

Nothing bad to report.

Overall Review:

I picked up the 9.5" rise Rig Bars at Pusher in Denver, October of 2017, for $68 (an average price for quality bars.) I chose the Black Jacket finish because yellow is my favorite color and I dig the splatter paint finish.  My reasons for choosing the Rig Bars were limited to the rise, the finish, and the crossbar decal.  I didn't give much thought to the sweep angles or weight.  I did cut the width of the bars down by about 1.25".  What can I say?  They look and feel awesome.  I've had a few gnarly spills where the bars took a direct impact and the paint has held up fantastically.  The tubing is strong and dent resistant as well.  Because I have zero complaints, I give the Rig Bars a solid five-star rating.  Strong work, Demolition.

Tall Order Wallride Tire

“i think its meh”

C138_tall_order_bmx_wallride_tyre_235_black_2

The Good:

The Bad:

very low profile. only had them for about a month and aal the profile is gone.

Overall Review:

Duo Brand Cranmer Grips

“My Favorites”

C138_89199190_1262897510

The Good:

Grippy, soft compound, horizontal pattern.

The Bad:

Soft compound, hard to find.

Overall Review:

I've had six pairs of these, and I've only worn out one pair. The soft compound is grippy, but since it is soft it does wear down faster than other grips would. I would recommend these, assuming you can find them, but if you want durability I'd go with the Duo Doyles.

The Make Death Hand Stem

“Make Stem Subpar”

C138_deathhandstem

The Good:

Looks good , light .

The Bad:

No CNC cutout for flush topcap , handlebars ALWAYS slip , not sure if I ended up grabbing a defective stem but I have to tighten the bolts every 3 or 4 rides , I’ve taken grease out of the bolt threads in hopes it would help but still no luck .

Overall Review:

I made a thread and the buddy below me recommend this stem , he also has 9.5 bars which I ride . I trusted his review and word and got this on sale for cheap . This stem is super light but constantly slips , handlebars and on the steerer tube . It almost seemed as if the bore for the steerer tube was too big even . Had to tighten it to the point it almost pinched to get it to stay on . Handlebars constantly slip , even when properly tightened . Pretty bummed I spent money on this , can get something a lot better for less . I’ve had basic Salt stems that were better . Wouldn’t even sell this stem to friends . It isn’t the worst , again maybe it was just my stem being defective , but I won’t be buying any Make Products again based off this stem
