  • The Good:

    Super Strong bodies and axles, deep concave gives super grip and feel

    The Bad:

    Not for weight weenies

    Overall Review: I've run mine on DH around 6 an 4X for about 3 years in wet muddy UK Conditions  and never had to touch them. The bushing system over bearings means the axles can be made thicker and MAN are they strong. True Story, on a ride in Scotland I got bucked in a rocky section. I came down totally ...

  • The Good:

    They're shiny
    TI axle
    Light

    The Bad:

    I've had these pedals for about 3 years now and in those 3 years I've hated every minute of them. I shelled out the big bucks for the TI axle so I figured I'd tough it out.
    The biggest issue for me anyways is the height of the actual axle itself across the pedal. It's raised just high enough to feel. It does make for uncomfortable footing. I ride with a pair of five ten free riders in a 10.5 size and I find for a flat I'm constantly adjusting my feet. I never really feel secure my feet are never stuck to the pedal. Granted they have stood the test of time over countless rock strikes and maintaining them is easy. It's just a simple set of washers to switch in and out. But I can't get over the feeling of not being sure footed on my pedals

    Overall Review: Overall I'd recommend these for somone with a smaller shoe size. If you're a size 10 and up go for a wider based pedal. For the money they aren't worth the discomfort.

  • Straitline Defacto Flat Pedal

    Featured Review Bomb Proof (product review)

    The Good:

    Super glue for your feet, good looks, and durability.

    The Bad:

    A bit clunky compared to many alternatives.

    Overall Review: Function The first cool thing about these pedals is that you can break them down without any tools. Straitline did some really neat engineering on this project. You could find a rock just about anywhere that would be enough of a tool to break these down. I didn't end up needing to do any servi...

  • The Good:

    Stiff, durable, fairly light, nice machining, low stack height

    The Bad:

    Pricey and might be overkill for some situations

    Overall Review: Definitely one of the more pricey components I have purchased primarily for looks, but the function surprised me as well. I have always tried to purchase from smaller companies that produced products in-house instead of sending overseas, and Straitline does just that. Working for a bike manufac...

  • The Good:

    Very Durable, Good Grip, Easy Maintenance

    The Bad:

    A Bit Heavy Compared To Others

    Overall Review: I have had these pedals for several years and they have held up great even without any rebuilds. The bushings may not spin as freely as pedals with bearings, but under foot I do not notice that at all. They have held up to countless rock strikes and the spindles are both still very true. As one ...

  • The Good:

    strong, many color options, good looks

    The Bad:

    on the pricey side

    Overall Review: I've been running 2 of these on separate bikes for the last two years. This is a hands down gorgeous stem. Straitline was way ahead of the curve when they came out with this stem. There are many color options and it's a great accessory to the cockpit if you're looking for bike jewelry. It's perf...

  • The Good:

    silent and reliable.

    The Bad:

    maybe a little bit heavy due to the aluminum bash ring, this is not a negative for me.

    Overall Review: The name says it all. This guide is in fact silent, I have been using it all season and have yet to have a problem.  The chain stays on , and the best part is there is no roller bearing to go bad. some people may feel it is too heavy due to the aluminum bash ring. This is not a negative f...

  • The Good:

    Strong, light, clamps on solid, slides on steerer tube without any resistance, many colors available, looks good.

    The Bad:

    The 2 bolts that clamp the stem to the steerer tube have rusted on mine.

    Overall Review: This is one of the best stems I've used. I basically installed it and never had to even think about it again. I like short stems, so the 35mm option is why I got this one (I had a Thomson 50mm that was great also, just too long for my liking). The only issue is the rust on the inside of the two ...

  • The Good:

    Durable, super easy to service, bombproof

    The Bad:

    Price, not super thin, weight

    Overall Review: Some say they drag because they run on bushings rather then bearings, this is almost not noticeable. I have run them dh and enduro for three years and never been bothered with this. Maybe serviced them once a year or even less, no play and very little friction. Also I do not grease them as other...

  • The Good:

    Strong, light and looks great are the good features of this stem. I believe those features came from the the material, design and how it been manufactured. The power transfer from your body to the handlebar and front wheel is effective.

    The Bad:

    There are few features that i dont like about this. those are the tag price ...seller price ... and .take out price..

    Overall Review: I highly recommend this as the chosen stem for enduro, aggresive AM, single crown's Freeride, light dh and DJ. So far i really feel confidence to take out berm and fast speed single track, and  i control my bike through this stem not the other around.

  • The Good:

    Strength and design

    The Bad:

    You'll pay for quality here

    Overall Review: The edgy angles are the first thing you admire about this work of art but it won't be the last. The simple, no fuss design is easy to install and the strength is something you'll never question as you rip the sketchy line you've been eyeing. The one thing I would like to see is more sizes please...

  • The Good:

    the good: reliable, no maintenance needed ,and the most resistant i have ever used

    The Bad:

    the only thing that could be better its the price ,but by the fact that you praticly don't need to change nothing because it wont break it's worth the price .

    Overall Review: i used to have an e.13 LG1+ and i braeck the taco and it had 1 or 2 cracks on the upper side, this one i have landed with the chain ring on rocks and it didn't break, its like new the best guide ever and i don't want to change it for an other.

  • The Good:

    Super quite clean awesome look no problems in any weather!

    The Bad:

    the setup guide it comes with is not the proper way to set it up, make sure when you install it both top and bottom sliders touch the chain to ensure the silent effect and runs as smooth as possible

    Overall Review: Best guide ever silent, andreliable tired many guides and this one works the best I love it you need it!

  • The Good:

    Strong, light weight, quiet, looks legit

    The Bad:

    Had to by extra rubber guides to get the color I wanted

    Overall Review: I have been searching for a chain guide bash gaurd combo that works well for a while now. They either fit poorly, sound horrible, are too bulky, or just look like junk. The Straitline really caught my eye and from the second I got it and put it on I knew I had made a great purchase. ebikestop.co...

  • The Good:

    Exactly as 'Kampfkoloss' said.

    The Bad:

    Exactly as 'Kampfkoloss' said.
    Even with a good greasing, they can feel a bit grindy/draggy when pedalling.
    Weight.
    Clearance.

    Overall Review: I am being lazy here, but I can only echo what was already said. They are good, but not amazing. With the rotating drag, these are not great for efficient pedalling, but are amazing with their grip for the downs. I guess that's why Straitline release the AMP to fill that void.

  • Straitline SC Platform Pedal

    Featured Review pretty good (product review)

    The Good:

    -they are VERY durable if you keep them greased (even after 2 seasons not a bit of play
    -(re) build takes less then 3 minutes and is easy (no need for specific tools, a small flat screwdriver and grease is all you need)
    -grip is very good
    -pins don't break easily

    The Bad:

    -they need a lot of maintenance (I would say 2 times per month, especially after muddy rides)

    Overall Review: These Pedals need a lot of maintenance (cleaning and re-greasing the bush bearings on the axle), but if you do that 1-2 times a month, the Straitline Flat will last 5 years minimum.
