2014 Colony Premise Bike

“Decent Bike”

C138_premise_blood_blk_side

The Good: All the stock parts are holding up very nice.

The Bad: Stem was broken when i bought the bike and cracked top top tube within a year.

Overall Review: The bike is pretty good. All the parts on it have held up very nice except for the frame and stem. I cracked the frame from doing 360s off of about 2-3 foot drops. The wheels have held up super well so far. No bends in the fork and i do grind a bit. Solid cranks, wheels, bars, forks. Ive been doing much bigger drops around 6 feet drops and bigger stair sets and everything is great. I did upgrade the frame though. The headset was replaced only after a year and a half which is good and the bottom bracket being replaced before 3 months. Overall a good bike for the price.

Volume Cerberus Frame

“Strong Frame”

C138_cerberus9

The Good: Holds up to big drops. Huge back end. Looks clean.

The Bad: Flat Black gets dirty fast. The head tube was too big for my forks and i run a gyro which allowed my stem to barely grab on which somehow made the top of the steerer tube not a perfect circle. So make sure your steerer tube is atleast 160mm if you run a gyro.

Overall Review: The frame is holding up quite well. I like to do big drops and its holding up good. I've hit the frame a few times with grinding and still no dents which is super nice. The chainstay length is also great for mannying if your a bigger guy. It also has huge tire clearance (i run a Animal tww 2.2). I still have like a centimeter on each side and the back end fits super well too, no stretching involved and i run a nondrive side hubgaurd. The Flatback does get dirty fast but will look sick if you keep it clean.

Demolition Rogue Rear Hub

“Ehh,its not the best for a intermediate rider ”

C138_img_2728

The Good: Light,somewhat reliable

The Bad: Axel Bolts,And Driver

Overall Review: I Had This For About 1 year,and not even hard riding ,then i started to advance up to being better,as i progressed i started seeing signs of it going,where i am at now with it ,the driver pawls are messed up,im riding my bike and i hear a creaking noise coming from the hub,has to be the pawls .so idk its an alright hub but i would Get Something Else Other Than This If You Go Hard On Your Bike.

C138_img_3104

The Good: Strong , good looking , great roll and grip by far the best ive used and will only use these

The Bad: Nothing so far, have only been using these for around 4 months but they seem to be holding up really well with no problems

Overall Review: All and all , the best tires ive used and have no complaints

2014 Kink Gap XL – Hittle Bike

“Good starter bike”

C138_2014_kink_gap_xl_hittle_matte_charcoal

The Good: Snappy, responsive

The Bad: Weak, not full chromoly

Overall Review: Bought this bike earlier this spring. I ride maybe 2-3 times a week and I have broken the stock forks, along with a set of stock Eastern forks. Both in the steer tube. Also, both seat stays are cracked around the seat tube and I have another crack on the chain stay right behind the sprocket. Good bike for the price, but not a superb street machine.

2013 Fit VH Signature Bike

“Solid and ready to ride”

C138_2013_vh_signature_candy_red

The Good: Fit did a sweet job at spec'ing out the VH Sig with all the after market level parts. Look around online, you can find this 2013 bike on clearance for $500 online.

The Bad: Nothing bad to say.

Overall Review: I've spent most of my BMX years riding beater used Craigslist bikes. Decided to commit to improving my skills and picked up this leftover 2013 VH Sig at the local shop. After riding beater setups, this VH Sig rocks.The part spec is on par with after market stuff, even down to the grips and pedals where bike makers skimp. It really is ready to roll, even has a rear hub guard. The bike is solid and has taken everything that I know how to throw it. I find it easier to manual and hop on the VH Sig. My old beater was a 2010 Felt Vault. The only thing you'll need to add is maybe another side of pegs if you ride with them on Read More »

Tree Bicycle Co. Ergo Slim Seat Seat

“Best slim seat ”

C138_screen_shot_2012_03_22_at_4.14.15_pm

The Good: Comfortable, Not slippy, Durable.

The Bad: The nose is a little flexy and if it gets wet it absorbs the water a lot.

Overall Review: I bought it for 25 euro and I am very happy with it, it's very comfortable to sit on and it doesn't hurt, the lip at the back of the makes it feel wide like a stool. It's easy to find the bolt inside the seat (sometimes fat seats are tricky) The cover is soft and stretchy (it won't rip)
