2013 Kink Whip Bike

“Good bike mainly for beginner riders”

C138_whip_prp_front

The Good: No parts have broken or got messed up except for the stem.

The Bad: Weak stem, not the best brake system, no gussets anywhere on the frame.

Overall Review: I bought this bike about a year ago in 2013 and started immediately changing out parts. I didn't like the brakes at all. I tried every way possible to get a stronger pull in response, but to no avail. I tried new pads, adjusting cables, but nothing worked. These are the Mission Halt brakes, but they don't bring you to a halt at all. Next, the stem. The Mission Converge stem kept slipping on me until one day I made them as tight as they could possibly be. They slipped once until this review about a month ago. Finally, there are NO gussets to provide the extra weld strength, which is a bummer because I love the dimensions of the frame. Today this bike in far from stock with almost a completely new setup except the frame. Thanks for reading!

BSD High Lander Handlebars

“Best handlebars I've ever owned!”

C138_bsdproductsbarshighlander003red

The Good: Pretty light, strong, nice decals on it.

The Bad: Nothing bad about them to me!

Overall Review: Kriss Kyle is my all-time favorite rider, and once I saw these bars for sale, I knew I had to have one because he used to run them! Well, I regret nothing! These bars are perfect in dimensions for me. I am 5,6". I really recommend these bars with a topload if you are a taller rider though. This is a good product from BSD!

Mission Converge Stem

“Don't know what to think about with this stem”

C138_94015110_1291047069

The Good: Strong, pretty light

The Bad: Will make your bars slip if the bolts aren't super tight. And boy do I mean SUPER TIGHT!

Overall Review: It's an alright stem. Came stock with a complete. If you're a beginner rider who won't abuse the bike so much like jumping and high drops, then this is fine for you. However, if you are a guy who does all the street stuff like in the web edits these days, this is NOT the right stem for you.

Volume Midship Frame

“really good frame”

C138_mid4

The Good: Simple & strong design, nice weight, love the geometry, nice dropouts with built-in tensioners

The Bad: I can only say not being able to adjust seat height, but you can always cut the post off (via Cut-line)

Overall Review: Im a shorter rider & have the 20.5 version its perfect for me geometry wise. Its really stout. ive had mine over a year & no dents even, which is crazy imo because I dented a sunday 2nd wave frame in less time than that. Really good frame

Kink Solace II Pivotal Stealth Seat

“kink solace 2 seat”

C138_solace_stealth_seats

The Good: Durable, looks killer

The Bad: Hard as a rock. Makes u never want to sit down even for resting

Overall Review: I bought this seat strictly for looks. It looks awesome on my bike. After the first time riding my bike with it I noticed I don't notice its there as much as my older wider seat. For this reason I love it but for the times I'm resting, sitting down, talking with friends or cruising down hill, this has to be the hardest seat I've ever sat on. And I never use it I'll just stand up

Tree Bicycle Co. Lite Spline Drive Sprocket Sprocket

“best sprocket I've owned BY FAR”

C138_lite_25t_spline

The Good: Spline drive, thick but machined so its light, offset teeth show no wear after 4 years of street & park riding!

The Bad: Nothing at all..I effing swear.

Overall Review: Last sprocket you'll ever have to buy. A guy at Richardson bike mart talked me into buying this 4 years ago.. to me its unreal for a sprocket to last that long. Tree is an awesome company

Profile Mulville Pivotal Seat

“Excellent seat. Mulville knows how they are soposed to be”

C138_screen_shot_2013_12_26_at_9.43.53_am

The Good: Great feel, Kevlar base, niice shape. Stylish and slim

The Bad: nothing at all

Overall Review: Perfect seat. Have had quite a few including a subrosa icon and bonedeth vibrator slim and fat version. This tops them all. fits right between the ass muscles so it doesn't pinch your cheeks like a fat seat, Doesn't tear, puppa bear

Dia Compe Tech77 Lever Brake Lever

“God among Men”

C138_93228990_1262029643

The Good: Strength, Length, Weight, feel, Thick enough that you can bend it yourself with out snapping it. Great shape. Classic

The Bad: Nill. Best lever i have ever owned

Overall Review: I have had two of these over the years. First on on my first bike with brakes. Bike got stollen though and the next bike didnt have brakes. Went back to brakes and had to go with the classic. Tried a mono leaver and wasn't right. This one just has the perfect feel and it's nice and long Fucking legend. faldfhkhfidhfid approved
