2013 Stolen Wrap Bike

“Great entry”

C138_wrap2

The Good: Nice seat and cranks

The Bad: Unsealed hubs, ok tires

Overall Review: I got this bike for $350 and it has served me well, I get lots of compliments on my seat. My only problems were after awhile my mid-bb would skip and such. Im pretty light so the frame and fork worked fine, I ride ramps and park so the tires were kinda slippery since they're meant for street. If you can spend a little more I recommend finding a bike with sealed hubs, it makes the bike more reliable and clean. I got an odyssey detangler (gyro)and it didn't fit due to no gyro holes and the stock brake cable broke within about half a year. Overall, if you're a lighter rider on a budget looking for a cheap street bike to ride brakeless this should do the job.

“Demolition Elite Fork Review”

C138_img_2412

The Good: Look great. Light weight. Medium offset. I have a 2.4 tire on the front and there is plenty of room to go bigger if I wanted to. Flat black is good. Check out my bike check for a visual.

The Bad: Had it for 3 months with no complaints.

Overall Review: Looks good visually and functions well mechanically.

Demolition Rolls Rear Hub

“Rolls V2 Female Axel Review ”

C138_img_2768

The Bad: I don't have a thing to complain about.

Overall Review: It's on sale. Get it while you can!

Demolition Machete Tire

“Good grip on everything.”

C138_img_3116

The Good: Just got the 2.4 size a few weeks ago and I love it. Holds well on dirt, park and in the streets. Aggressive tread that rolls fast and is also very light weight for the large size. Protect those hubs!

The Bad: Nothing yet.

Overall Review: I will be getting another one when I burn this one out.

Demolition Machete Tire

“super tire”

C138_img_3116

The Good: sticky at the park, sticky at the trails, sticky on the street, perfect tire for all kinda riding, holds high pressure, fat as helllllllll very durable and oh yeah its light... if you actually care about a few oz's

The Bad: nothing so far keep in mind this tire is fat and may rub on frame or forks not built for fat tires

Overall Review: i run the 2.35 on the front and it grips like crazy, nice and fat superior grip at the trails without being too much, and yea i agree with the review before the last dude if your falling ona 5foot quarter ive got news for you.....its not the tire.....this tire is amazing for all riding styles and would recommend it to anyone who is actually goin out to  schred and wants a tire you can go from the trails to the park and hit the street on the way home, ohh and i run front and rear brakes with nothing more than shaving down the brake arms a tad where the tire rubs, its bmx shit will rub creak and time to time break thats how it is so quit bitchn and go ride

Kink Mid Bottom Bracket

“super smoothe”

C138_bb_gryredblk

The Good: smooth bearings, spacers look sweet w cranks, super light weight

The Bad: the non drive side spacer is alil big, would be perfect if kink included a medium sized spacer in addition to, other than that would absolutely recommend

Overall Review: super smooth lightweight bb would absolutely buy it for any build

Tree Bicycle Co. Original Sprocket Sprocket

“Tree is sweet!”

C138_og_25t_spline

The Good: This sprocket is amazing! I ride pegless and do a lot of sprocket bashing...rode my last one for 2 years and it had no signs of giving up on me. Bought a new-to-me (used) one 6 months ago just to go with my color scheme and it still rides smooth.

The Bad: Until I have something to say, nothing here!

Overall Review: Ifyou like sprockets that don't suck, spend some money on a Tree.

Tree Bicycle Co. Straight Pull Rear Hub Rear Hub

“V2... Good stuff, powderpuff.”

C138_tree_rear_hub_blk_jpg

The Good: Fast, clean, loud and mean. Lacing this hub up was, by far, the easiest I've ever done. With the minimalist hub guard, it worked great for my style of riding. It stood up to the abuse of pegless street and park riding. I do a lot of axle stalls and grinds and never broke a spoke. The 3/8" ratchet drive bolts are rad and the Woodgrain is sexay!

The Bad: As mentioned, the side to side wobble was noticeable after a while, and only got worse over time...even after pulling it apart and servicing it numerous times. I'm picky about having my bike feel solid and it was enough for me to switch.

Overall Review: This hub lasted me 2 years and I loved it until the wobble got too bad. The design is aesthetically pleasing and the sound is nice. The bolts worked perfect for stalls and I still use them on my new hub. I got mine in Woodgrain and it looks badass. I'd definitely get another if the wobble was taken care of.

2014 DK Raven Bike

“The 2014 Dk raven.. was it worth the buy? entry level i know.. because i entered! XD”

C138_2014_dk_raven_red

The Good: Its a nice bike, if you're just starting out in BMX i'd recomned this bike.. it has a nice light frame with nice road tires which is great for the street where i live (Belize)
i was surprised how light it is after riding for the 1st time, i like how it feels on the streets..feels like a beginner bike, which it is, but feels better other beginner bikes I've rode. plus the weight is excellent for learning tricks.

The Bad: I don't know how the bike will stand up to high stress activities since i haven't ridden it much since i got it, reason being is that i guess DK put some faulty drivers on their entry level bikes, but i'm expecting cinema hubs and rims soon.. also the tires are great but perhaps they're a bit thin.. i got a puncture on my first ride, maybe i can fix that with new tires or just some tire liner. also its not a sealed bike but don't expect to have sealed everything on a entry level bike.. and i have problems with the stem, by bars would move out of place after landing.. so i guess i'd have to change that if it keeps happening after i fix my rear end.. or maybe it's just because its new?

Overall Review: i'll know if its a good bike after i get some more riding in.. like i said my rear hub was destroyed less than a month of fair riding, but it feels good, feels solid.. looking forward to getting it fixed soon.. ordered a new cinema rear wheel from danscomp and some pegs but my place of living makes the delivery process forever and a little bit difficult since i have to use a 3rd party.. but it's a good bike, i wanna upgrade to the x model or even Helio just because i dig DK that much..
