When it comes to bikes, it is hard to find any product that can match or beat the value of the Sapient Drop BMX Bike. For starters, the Hi-Ten Steel frame is absolutely second to none in terms of performance and reliability, which is obviously an important factor in choosing a bike. Matched with 1-1/8th Hi-Ten Steel forks and Framed 2pc Bars, it is clear that Sapient did not hold back in their attempt to make a truly amazing bike.

The Sapient drop 2014 is a very good bike, but in my opinion it is heavy and all though the grips are very comfortable they don't give me the feeling for the bars that I was looking for, and the breaks are really bad. Otherwise it is a very good bike and I would recommend it to my friends and any other person.I also believe that the price for the drop was very good in my opinion. So overall asides from the weight,breaks and the grips it is an amazing bike
I highly recommend this bike and the website I ordered it from.The bike is a great product and excellent price.It came exactly actually a day earlier than expected. I would definitely order from here again.
I bought this for my 8 yo and he loves it. It's a little big when friends are getting 18" but has room to grow. One thing. The brakes are crazy tight. Should work on loosening up the mechanism so younger kids can actually squeeze them.
Haven't yet seen my sons expression when he sees it for the first time CHRISTmas morning, but I think the bike is great, beautiful, easy to put together, arrived on time(and in good shape) and was a great price. Highly Recommended.
This is a good base bike to build off of. It does not come with front brakes, gyroscope, or pegs. But it is a solid bike to begin with. I bought one for my son, and he will build it to his liking. The only thing I really wish it did come with was the gyroscope on the handle bars.
My Grandson just had a birthday and he wanted a new bike with his birthday money. I have shopped around and researched. He didn't want another bike from Walmart and we have been very disappointed with the quality of those we have bought in the past. Nearly every year we have been having to buy a new bike, we are hoping to finally have found one that is going to have superb quality. We have also had many of our bikes stolen out of our yard, this one will definitely be getting locked up!
I wanted to open my horizons to experience something different. I am a skateboarder and have recently been introduced to this sport. I have practiced on my friends bike and think it be really fun to have my own and pursue the sport even further! Thank you!
BOUGHT IT FOR MY NEPHEW.. AS A KID I GREW UP PUTTING TOGETHER ALL TYPES PARTS TO MAKE MYSELF THE PERFECT BMX. THE GETTING TIRED OF IT OR DESTROYING IT AND STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN. I THINK ITS THE PERFECT BIKE TO FOR MY NEPHEW TO START DOING THE SAME.
Whats the big difference between the Sapient Drop and the Framed Forge... they seem quite similar and are the same price... looking to get bikes for my boys who are turning 12 and 13 this summer... just need a bike for cruising around the neighborhood and goofing off....
Best Answer:The Framed Forge and the Sapient drop are not meant for jumping or tricks they are your basic get around bikes with bmx flare. If you are looking to do tricks and jumps then get a higher end bike.
It a great beginners bike for our 10 year old to run the local dirt tracks. I would not recommend this for concert ramps since it would require a set of oversized pegs to fit the larger axel on the back tire.
The Sapient drop is a great bike for a ten year old kid wanting to get his feet wet into bmxing. Whether or not it is to big for him really depends on his build and stature. Some kids his age I have seen have been long in the legs but short in the upper torso, so they might seem a little stretched out on the bike.
The Sapient drop is not a good bike for racing i would suggest looking at a intense moto pro. If your just getting into racing it is a great affordable bike, if you are not new to racing i would look at the pk ripper.
Best Answer:YES GOT IT FOR OUR SONS 15TH BIRTHDAY AN HE LOVES IT AN BE AWARE THE ENVY EST ONES WILL COME OUT OF THE WOOD WORKS IT IS AWSOME I HAVE HAVE EVEN ROAD IT AN IT RIDES NICELY SO YES GET IT AN LOVE IT !!!!!
Best Answer:Jumps yes but you would have to be able to do them of course grinding not so much you would have to get special pegs and have very good balance . The bike is light so all you need is to be good at it.
The Sapient drop is a good bike for beginners to learn basic tricks on. Going big air really depends on the experience level of the rider and making sure that his bike is taking care of to preform such tricks.
Does this bike come in one piece or do you have to put the parts together yourself?

Best Answer:All complete bikes are sold and delivered partially assembled. Final assembly should be done by a qualified bike technician. Failure to have the bike assembled by a qualified technician may void the warranty and could result in damage and/or injury if not assembled correctly. As an industry standard, some bikes might have minor cosmetic blemishes due to the nature of shipping.
Best Answer:This bike is way to small for any of that. My wife is 115 pounds and she couldn't even ride it comfortably. We had to order a new 24" bike and she loves it. Also the rims of this bike could possibly bend.
Does the sapient drop come with a free beanie? I watched a unboxing of the same bike and he had a free beanie
A shopper on May 16, 2014
Best Answer:Yes it does (while supplies last), if you check out the "Free Gear" located on the right (if you click it, it makes the information larger easier to read), we keep that up to date so you know what to expect.
Hi i have an 8 year old son who is into bmx'ing. Is this bike a good starter bike or would an 18 in be better?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2013
Best Answer:I got this bike for my 8yr old, it's a good size to grow into and also the seat can go really low so touching the ground should not be a issue for a average sized kid. You can also adjust the handle bars slightly back so you don't have to extend arms too far and not mess up his natural riding position. A 18" might be good for now but with few to choose from and pricing a bit higher might not be worth it. Plus he will out grow it soon, the 20" is a great starter bike.
This bike is great.. if he likes the sport you can add higher performance parts to it before upgrading completely. but this is the general size for kids 8 to 80.. .. my kid love it and sits proudly on it among the 6 and 700 dollar bikes.. seat is hard if he still actually sits and rides street. it comes almost completely built.. just bolt on the seat, handle bars, and front tire. but i still to it to a bike shop to turn it right for 25 bucks
Best Answer:Yes I highly recommend Very light weight My eleven year old just got it for his birthday today and has not stopped saying thank you. He is small for his age and has no problem manerving the bike.
Sorry don't know if I am the right person to ask. I just bought the cheapest bike for short rides so I can get some exercise. You get what you pay for, the tires max out at 165 lbs at 40 PSI. I will probably have to purchase new tires and grips for me to use it. Hope that helps.
Best Answer:The sale ends when this bike runs out of stock. If you purchase the bike on Tuesday and express ground shipping option then it can take anywhere between 1-4 business days, this also depends where you are located.
Best Answer:Can a girl ride it? Sure. Can you race with it? I don't think I would. You might have some fun taking it around the track just for kicks but to actually race, you'd want something made for racing like a red line.

Best Answer:I'm no expert but I got this bike a couple days ago. I'm 5' 11" and it feels just a little to small for me but it's not giving me any problems. So to answer your question I would say yes the sapient would be a good fit for you
Best Answer:This is definitely a beginner's bike. The quality is what you would expect from a $100 BMX bike. Even if you buy this one and move up from here, the frame and main parts seem like they would last a while. The bike arrived as advertised and was very easy to assemble. From box to ride to about 20 minutes.
Best Answer:The Sapient drop does not come with a gyro, but you can buy the SST gyro kit and it will come with everything you need to set up a gyro. But you will have to bring it to a local bike to have them install it cause you will need special tools
on a scale from 1 to 10 how smooth riding is this bike?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2014
Best Answer:3? Maybe.. This question really needs more detail. Any bike can ride smoothly. That would come down to how well maintained the bearings, are and how much air is in the tire. This is my sons bike and it is definetly not as smooth as my flatland bike, but its $100 vs $1000
Best Answer:Yes you can, it depends on the style. These is a place just in back of the crankcase where the rear forks split. Place normally where you would find a kickstand mounted. The one I put on is a Cannondale. Suppose you could put any universal kickstand on, would ensure proper fitment in case you need to return it. Hope this helps.
Best Answer:That would be an interesting question. Since you say "high class" bmx bikes. I would say NO, but lets be realistic. I bought this $100 bike for my 8 yr. old son. I have a $1500 BMX bike. They are not the same. You are looking at a bike with a high Ten steel frame, and 1 piece crank. It is not the quality of a full 4130 frame/fork and a 3 piece crank. No I will say that if you are looking at this for a young kid just getting into the sport it will likely be fine., but it is low end. 25lbs is fairly high by todays standards (mine is ~18lbs.) but the weight comes from using less strong and heavier high tensile steel that would not be used in a higher end bike.
tldr- it is good for a begginer, but should not be put up against a "high class" bmx bike.
Best Answer:Enough to spin the wheels. Its not a performance bike, but its well built. I bought this bike for my son because he wanted a cool looking bmx bike. I wasn't going to drop any more money on something better as i know he'll probably not take care of it. Its a budget conscious bike that's better than the garbage they sell at wal-mart and other big box stores. If your looking for something more up your budget.
Best Answer:Hey, You can put a longer seat post on this bike. the bike shop informed me that you need to be careful to put it in far enough (especially if you get a ridiculously long one) to not harm the top of the tube.
Best Answer:The Sapient Drop has a 20.5" top tube. It would be a good size if you are just learning how to ride freestyle. If you already know how then this bike will be too small and you will need a 21" top tube
Which bike would fit me better if i am 5 and 8 inches the sapient drop 20 inch or spaient titan 24 inch if if im not gonna do any tricks but just ride it every day to the park I have very long arms and legs
Best Answer:if you wanted to put 3-piece cranks on the Sapient Drop you would need to replace the american loose ball bottom bracket with a sealed american bottom bracket in order to fit 3- piece cranks on the bike.
I am deciding if I want to get a sapient drop or a sapient perspica. I am looking for a bike that is good for crusing around and a bike that can do good tricks easily and is okay for dirt and street/park. Could u tell what would be better for me plz?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2014
Best Answer:I would suggest the Sapient Perspica Pro because it is a better bike in quality and for the money compared to the lower end beginner Sapient Drop. You can do tricks since the Perspica is a freestyle BMX Bike and no problem cruising on it.
