Cult VANS Grips

“quite disappointed...”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_14_at_3.56.27_pm

The Good: Vans waffle design is sweet

The Bad: Calluse creator, wore down quick, never stayed in place (twisting back and forth wise)

Overall Review: Love Cult but Honestly one of the worse products they have. Just get ODIs

Demolition Momentum Tire

“Nice Lightweight tire”

C138_img_3104

The Good: Grippy, squeaky, durable/long lasting, light as fu**

The Bad: Flat city, really thin (reasoning for weight)

Overall Review: Real nice tire, but be ready to have backup tubes on you. Daily rider and I rode mine for at least half a year. Recommended for them street riders!

Fit F.A.F. Tire

“YOU WONT REGRET ”

C138_84113350_1268269372

The Good: Last long, super grippy, chirps like a fat bird, barely any flats

The Bad: Nothing bad about it

Overall Review: I ran two sets of these and I loved them. I've ridden the 2.25, 2.3, and 2.4. If you are wanting a "knobby" looking tire run the 2.25s. If you want that nice slick looking tire get the 2.3 or 2.4. The 2.25 and 2.4 are about the same width inflated. Thinking about switching to deharts now

2013 WeThePeople Trust Bike

“wethepeople trust 2012 (black 20.5)”

C138_wethepeople_trust_2013_bmx_bike

The Good: I think the best part is the fork because It took a lot of beating and it never bent or cracked plus it's feels very light. The cranks are really good too. Never had a problem with except a little noise it does when I pedal but It's not really disturbing. The eclat pedals are very grippy even when they wear out (because of nylon I think).
Both hubs are very good, never had a problem with them.
The rims are pretty solid parts in this bike. They took a lot of beating when I ride them and they are still fine except the back one that is slighly oval but it still resisted alot.
The chain never broke and is pretty light I just had to add a half-link and remove a link because it was too loose.
I personally like the seat because it's fat but not too much so it's ideal for me cause I don't sit too much.
The sprocket is decent. I never hitted the bike on that part so it never bent.

The Bad: I like the color of the bars however the geometry was weird and I've bent them like 5 months ago. The frame was very solid and light but I'm quite tall (6'1) so sometimes I hit the bars with my knees when i'm riding. It happened that I broke the top tube 2 month ago and I really didn't expect that. It lasted me like 2 years so It wasn't a really bad frame but a bit little for me. The tyres wears very fast and the pitch mid had a cut on the left wall 1 month after getting the bike. The pitch flow lasted a bit more but I had a lot of punctures and tyre was so weared out that you could almost see the inner tube. The grips are shit they last nothing.

Overall Review: I rode this bike for more than 2 years and it's still a great bike! All the parts of this bike are very solid and light. It's a good first bike and then change the defective parts for better ones.

Fit S4 Aitken Frame

“A good frame!”

C138_frame_s4_turq_lt

The Good: Good color variety, great weight, and good durability.

The Bad: Paint is really cheap or whatever, so it chips real easily. Otherwise, I have the teal version and it's the best looking paint for a frame I've ever had!

Overall Review: If anything you can judge at first, the paint for sure is one of the main cons of the frame. It's thin or whatever, so it chips real easily. So if you're not a color person, just try to find the raw version (applies to any part, really). As for dent resistance, I've caught it on a ledge twice on each chainstay and it left a minor dent, not too bad. I've rode some S&M frames before, so I'd have to say they're pretty similar durability-wise.  Not to mention, coincidentally, the frame was manufactured by S&M. The weight is average (4 lbs, 13 oz), not that I really care too much, unless a frame is like almost 6 pounds.

Federal Lacey Frame

“federal Lacey fuckyeah!!!!”

C138_federal_lacey_frame_matt_black

The Good: Very light frame, very strong

The Bad: Nothing bad to say.... Hasn't let me down yet

Overall Review: Recommend this frame to anyone... Good job federal

Shadow Conspiracy VALOR Tire

“SHADOW VALOR!!”

C138_174232997

The Good: Fatties if youre into that. They look Amazing. Super Grippy. Super Durable. FAST.

The Bad: Pretty Heavy is all.

Overall Review: These tires are Amazing and they look awesome, kinda like a bad ass version of Hawk tires. These tires are definitely worth getting. But, they are a pretty heavy tire and rotational wieght can make a BIG difference in the way your bike feels and controls.

MacNeil Consplined Cranks

“Macneil Consplined Cranks”

C138_consplined_silver

The Good: Macneil / Canadian company. They're strong and stiff , they work well , easy to install and remove , look good because of the welding style of the arms.

The Bad: No issues for me but apparently a homie broke them down the welds. His a big guy though and I think he sais he stomped his pedals thats why

Overall Review: Get them. Nothing special or gimmicks , just straight cranks.

2012 Redline Asset Bike

“Decent bike”

C138_dsp_asset_red_thumb_800

The Good: Feels great when riding it, light bike and it fits a tall rider well

The Bad: Bent the forks in 4 days, the sprocket bent, I had to cut down the seatpost because it was too long

Overall Review: Great intermediate/beginner bike, a few upgrades will make it a badass bike.

Kink Pillar Cranks

“Great cranks”

C138_crank_pillar_5

The Good: They can run micro drive and regular sprockets on either side the spindle is hollow and both the sprocket bolt and the spindle bolt are hollow there 22mm so thicker the pedal bosses are awesome haven't stripped out witch is good for me seeing how all my other ones strip out while im riding overall i love them couldn't ask for more.

The Bad: lol its a wimpy thing but i had to get a new bottom bracket cause there 22mm lol but i love them

Overall Review: the best cranks ive ever ridden and ive ridden: profile racing, odyssey thermal, odyssey twombolts, nitrous, fit cranks, and a couple others these are by far the best!!!!!
