Break em. I dare you!

Rating:

The Good: These cranks are about as close to indestructible is it gets! None of the crank arms have been broken or warrantied. Really stiff and durable and also pretty lightweight! No doubt, the best bmx style crank available. Yet another example of deity quality on show in these cranks!

The Bad: A bit more expensive than other cranks, doesn't come with a spindle

Overall: As stated before, these could be the best bmx style cranks on the market! The durability and quality is unrivaled by any of its competitors! Very stiff too, no flex while riding even when it goes bad, such as casing large jumps! Graphics are killer as well! The variety of colors match any build great! The only downside is that they don't come with a spindle, but those cam be acquired easily from any deity dealer. If you're after durability and longevity in a set of crankarms these are your answer!

Baller on a budget

Rating:

The Good: Amazing fork for anything dirtjump, slopestyle, and street related! While often costing less than half of its competitors, the rockshox argyle rct and fox 831, it can always compete and often outperform them! The abs adjustments work amazing to switch you fork from plush to stiff in a matter of seconds! The stiff 20mm hexlock axle makes it much more stiff than the fox 831 despite being near $500 cheaper. Additionally, the 2014 circuses (1946g) are in fact lighter than argyle rct's (2016g).

The Bad: I can't really think of any! Looks and performs great, and will surely last longer, with less work than its competitors!

Overall:

If you're looking for an amazing dirt jump fork, especially with a sub $500 budget look no further! Forget about dj1's or argyle rc's they won't even compare. I've owned 2 circus forks on 2 different bikes and I don't think I would ever ride anything else! I can't think of a single reason not to buy it! Extremely durable, and on the off chance that something should go wrong manitou will replace it! Very light, ridiculously stiff, and the abs knob allows for tons of compression on the fly for whatever you're riding! This fork might just be the best example of a "baller on a budget" product! Outperforms competitors more than twice the prize with ease! If you value durability, value, and performance this should be the number one fork on your list!

Sleek and sticky

Rating:

The Good: The decoys are fantastic pedals, good width and very thin! Also very light and good looking at a price that won't break the bank!

The Bad: A bit hard to find, not the cheapest but well worth it.

Overall:

Riding these pedals on my cryptkeeper! Use them for jumping, park, street, and occasional trail riding and they've been fantastic thus far! In addition to looking amazing, they provide fantastic grip! comfortable width to ride on, and they're incredibly thin, great for rocky trails! I recommend these pedals for any discipline from xc to dh! Great pedal at a sub $100 price!

The definition of bombproof

Rating:

The Good: The hifi is super stiff, extremely durable,and looks super nice, while maintaining a fairly light weight!

The Bad: A bit expensive.

Overall:

Very nice stem! The quality and attention to detail is very obvious even at first glance. Very clean and sleek looking stem, the design is amazing! The hifi also performs great. I use the 50mm model for dirt jumping with 750mm bars and it has no flex. Big hardware and built very strong so it stands up to all sorts of abuse! Some say its heavy, but for a jump/dh stem it has a very respectable weight, doesn't feel at all heavy while riding. Overall, if you're looking for a great looking and performing stem in a variety of lengths look no further!

Buy it! You won't regret it!

Rating:

The Good: -Amazing geometry on everything. -Well built. -Very lightweight. -Affordable. -Looks amazing. -Comes with a warranty.

The Bad: I can't really think of any. I suppose the fact that the frame only has stickers, not painted on designs or clear-coated logos to be negative, but I like how it makes customization easier. But quality or performance wise, absolutely nothing.

Overall:

This is quite possibly the best dirt jump frame on the market! Geo feels 100% dialed on everything from dirt jumps to street and park! Craftsmanship is amazing, if you know anything about deity, you'll know how much they care about their product and that's clearly evident in this frame. Everything from the welds, to the decals, to the chainstay yoke shows how much they value what they make and how important buyer satisfaction is to deity! Hands down the best frame I've ever ridden. The only thing that could make it better is a tapered headtube, which is going to be a feature in the new ones! I really can't think of a reason not to buy this frame, the geometry and quality are absolutely amazing and the price is very reasonable, much cheaper than say a p.3 or ns majesty which are possibly the only other frames that could compare. I've had mine for several months and I've yet to have a problem or complaint. In short, absolutely amazing frame for any rider of any skill level, highly reccomend it!

Looks awesome! How do you like it? I have a half built cryptkeeper and I'm thinking about outlaws and a circus. I've used circuses before but never outlaws. How are they holding up? and what gear ratio are you running?

I know this sounds bad but just save up a little and buy a dedicated dirt jumper off pinkbike. It'll hold up better, be a ton more fun, and you'll probably save a bunch of money in the long run.
