Jitsie bikes

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone.

I would like to change my bike after 3 years riding it. What do people think of the most recent Jitsie bikes? Any flaws? It's either this or the new Curve. I am just not sold on any of them. So any input would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I've actually been planning to do a bit of a review of mine one Day, but Just haven't been able to recently.

 

In short, great bikes. Had mine 10 months and had no issues, everything is solid, good geo and weight, and the price is really good, especially compared to other brands 

I'd recommend

Your advice really counts for me after following you for so many years so thanks for your input. I have had quite a few other reviews from other people owning one and everyone seems to be really happy about them. They just do the job perfectly it seems. But after so many years with Crewkerz I can't resign riding another bike yet. Also you cant get other forks than the Jitsie one to work with their bikes. This plus the ISIS BB, the snail cams tensioners and the standard wheel axles is something I don't want to go back to. Money is tight now so I will just keep on riding my Jealousy until I can afford the new Curve which is made by Crewkerz now.

I get that. If you have a particular bike/set up in mind then you'll always prefer that.

The only thing I've changed on mine is the bar/stem for personal setup preference. At no point have I felt the need to change anything else like fork's, BB,etc. The snail cams are the only annoying thing, but can live with them fine. Something that surprised me on the Jitsie is the strength of the wheels. I do a lot of gaps to rear and am pretty clumsy and they've been perfect.

I was able to get 2 Jitsies for less than the price of 1 of another brand. That helped my decision too haha

The price is definitely a selling point on these bikes. Especially with the great equipment they come with. It's more technically that I feel kind of unsure about these bikes. No easy freewheel swap when it dies, snail cams with a disc brake meaning the disc will never get to the exact same point when getting the rear wheel out, no other forks to use if it breaks is something I can't live with. That is really a shame as I really dig the look of their most recent Race bike. 

But I really like the look of the Curve frames too. But I would have to change the cranks and BB to a BB24 crankset from Bonz or the Hashtagg one. That's a lot of money and that is the problem. Jitsie is so cheap but there are things I can't change...
