If hitting doubles and pinning wall rides are your flavor, throw a leg over Kink’s Gap XL and let the fun begin. The sturdy chromoly main frame sports a 21-inch top tube, and the Kink fork delivers a tough and maneuverable setup for playing in the park or sending it at the trails. The Gap XL is equipped with a sealed integrated headset, 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks, and a mid sealed bottom bracket for low weight and excellent durability. The Mission X7 rims and grippy Kink Sever tires provide confident contact on hard surfaces, and the Pivotal seat and post add adjustability for a dialed fit.

I bought this bike new. In less than a month a whole pedal and crank snapped off, revealing a screw completely stripped from about a third down, and a damaged crank. I took really good care of the bike, storing it inside and putting oil on the chain after a good ride. I'm disappointed in the Kink company. They do not live up to their company message. From what I have experienced they use cheap parts and don't quality test. The bike is currently back at Twowheeler dealer being repaired. As of now I recommend choosing a different company then Kink. Their faulty product has heavily inconvenienced me (walking around with a broken bike, and pedal wasn't what I planned to do when going for a bike ride) and put me in danger ( I was biking along a road when the pedal snapped off). In short I was sold a defective bike that has inconvenienced me, which is a shame since it was a really fun bike to ride while in one piece.
the bike is light weight. but after a while the forks will bend after a many times of hard riding.the tires arent the best either. i recomend kink foundation forks with badger bars and odyssey mike aitken tires 2.25 with heavy duty tubes. all together this bike is a great beginner bike.
