Buyer's Guide 1 - Freecoaster Completes

7 Of The Best For 2016

21 Jan 2016

Productivity Freeecosater Completes Intro

By Kerr Bilsland

Completes have improved drastically in recent years with LHD and coaster options now being readily available right of off the shelf from a lot of quality brands. Sure you might find a cheaper (and worse) option from a company who will be here for ten minutes and solely aim to make a quick buck but there are also those who believe devoutly in selling quality bikes and giving back to the riders who are out there killing it on the daily. You might be bursting at the seams to get involved but take a second to make sure you’re really putting your money where your mouth is and get yourself something that’ll keep you buzzing for the long run. Here's a selection of 2016 Freecoaster completes from proven bands that you can put your trust in.

United 2016 MARTINEZ EXPERT FC

With numerous classic DVD sections under his belt and the long running relationship United and Corey have you know what to expect when you see Corey’s name on anything whether it be a new video part or his 2016 complete... it’s going to be solid. Coming with a healthy amount of aftermarket United parts and full Chromoly frame and fork this will treat you right. If there's a rider's signature complete that you can be proud to call your own then you don't need to look any further.

WeThePeople Reason FC

The cheapest freecoaster complete we are featuring, which in no way means just because it is affordable it comes stock with lacklustre parts. The perfect intro bike for today’s teenager, maybe your mate who’s always taking your whip for a ride at the local? Coming with a shorter off-set fork and higher standover for 2016 you’ll find this very similar to what the WTP team riders are currently on. With those new pegs you just got in the box you won’t want to ruin those hubs right? Well the Reason comes with nylon hub guards included so no worries there.

Kink SXTN - Sean Sexton Signature

Coming in Guinness black, Sean Sexton’s complete is an ode to the man himself. The bike features somewhat classic geometry for a good all rounder. If you think you need the shortest backend and steepest headtube to do a feeble hard 180 just have a peek at some of Sean’s video sections to realize sometimes it's better to have something sturdy underneath you rather than something squirrely. Kink has also gone in on making sure you get your money's worth, offering parts your favourite Kink riders ride and trust themselves.

Verde Luxe FX

Coming in a subtle and understated matte black, with a flash of chrome, the Verde Luxe FX is one of the cleanest looking completes around. We've been familiar with Verde's most prestigious complete for a while now but this year sees the introduction of a freecoaster model for the first time. The Cinema FX comes as standard and the bike is available in both left and right hand drive. If you're still stuck in the past there is also a cassette version which is switchable. Tony Neyer's signature 9" bars take care of things upfront and 2.4" tyres front and rear are a nice addition. Grab this one while you can as supplies are limited.
