My son is completely happy with his new bike! It is exactly what he was hoping for. He rides it around the neighborhood with friends and takes it to the skate park as well. He's not easy on his bikes, they take a good beating on his jumps. I'm happy with the price and customer care I received.
I purchased this BMX for my son and when we received it I was expecting to spend lots of time assembling every single part but it turns out that I only had to put the front tire, the seat, the handle bars and the pedals.on and we were done in about 15 minutes. The packaging was very good because the box seemed like it got bounced around alot by UPS (delivery to Canada) but the bike was in prestine condition.
Is this bike good for a person that is 170 pounds?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2013
Best Answer:Hello, I have owned this bmx bike for a few months now and its a good solid bike. At 170 pounds the bike should hold up just fine. I wouldn't try super big tricks (like down 10 stair handrails) but just beginner bmx stuff it's all good. I'm 28 years old and weigh 135 and ride my Sapient Perspica Pro mostly doing bunny hops up/down curbs, occasional dirt jumps, wheelie across intersections, pretty much just raise heck on the streets.
Answer: YES. Unless you are a pro biker then get something more expensive.
Best Answer:Are you going to have a hard landing? If you can jump a big jump and land smooth then YES you can. If your going to let's say bunny hop off a roof and land to flat ground, ouch! Buy a pro-grade bike. All I did with my perspica pro was upgraded the stem and keep it in top running condition. It's a great bike for the price. And I don't know about all those handle bar issues... Maybe they didn't have a bike mechanic assemble it. I had no prob with mine before Or after switching the stem.
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:I bought this bike for my son and he loves it. All he does on it is tricks and jumps he said it was very light and good for tricks. He rides it in the dirt and pavement and both are fine. It is a good solid bike.
Best Answer:Hi Robert, if I understand correctly I believe you are asking if the bike has a freehub (which allows pedals to be rotated backwards freely). If this is the case, then yes this bike does have that feature.
Is this a good bike for my 19 year old son he's a beginner?
A shopper on Jan 26, 2015
Best Answer:Its a good beginners bike, got this bike for my 13 year son like almost 3 years ago, great customer service The House stand by there products, I had a problem with the bike about 7 months after buying it, call them up and they shipped a replacement part for free, to Canada. I was more than willing to pay shipping since I know they only ship inside the states (had it ship to my family on Ohio, then up to Toronto area when first buying it)
With some minor upgrades could this bike do well with jumps?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer:Probably depends on your weight and how aggressive you ride. I'm 135lbs and I jump my perspica pro. I Upgraded the stem and that's it. I'm not pro or anything but I am a bike mechanic and keep my bike in top working order. Basically if you wanna jump a dirt jump with a take off and landing you should be good...as long as you make it... If you wanna jump down 12 stairs to flat.... I'd upgrade much more... Like the rims. But if u want a good bike for price the sapient perspica pro is awesome.
At 135lbs this bike takes everything I dish it! Wheelies are no problem! I bunny hop over 20 inches high no problems ... Even do little 180's. Keep all the bolts tight and take care of the bike and it will take care of you. No body should have issue just by doing a simple wheelie.
What parts don't come assembled what do I have to put together and I don't want any of the certified bike technician what isn't assembled?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2015
Best Answer:Hey, This is a fair question. For most of our BMX bikes (including Sapient bikes) you will need to assemble the front tire, the handlebars, pedals, seat, grips... and most importantly align everything. If you know what you are doing.... its a relatively pedestrian process. Note that not having a certified tech accomplish this can void your warranty. For more info feel free to chat with our Bike Shop: 1 (800) 409-7669.
Best Answer:It depends on what you consider to be good. If you're just getting into BMX, learning to jump and do drops the rims are great. If you're doing 40' airs and double stair set drops the rims will be ok.
IN looking for a bmx bike and ive looked around im wundering if I shud go with a haro or this ?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2014
Best Answer:The Sapient Perspica Pro BMX Bike is a great bike at this price point. With Haro you can find models all over the board from low end to competitive so you'r question is very hard to answer.
Best Answer:Hi Jorden, while there is no specified weigh limit, I would estimate the max weight you would like to go on this bike would be around 225 lbs. You may want to think about a 24" bmx bike if the weight is exceeding this.
Best Answer:Hi Robert, Sapient did originally offer this Perspica Pro Bike in a 'Whiteout / Smurf' color option... you are quite correct. We have sold our last... they do not plan to re-offer it in the near future.
Ok..let's say I get this bmx bike and later for a while I mess up my back rim can I get this changed or buy a bmx back rim and set it on this bmx?Because I bought a bmx at Walmart and got ripped off because the back rim was a fake bmx rim..thank u
A shopper on May 1, 2015
Best Answer:Good Day! First I am sorry that you got ripped off. Second, you can get a BMX rim to replace it, but I would need to know exactly what bike and size you have. The single best and fastest thing you can do is chat with our Bike Shop... they can get you set up: 1 (800) 409-7669.
I got a question does this bike free coast?? Were you dont have to pedal backwards?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2015
Best Answer:Hi, Basically none of the BMX bikes that we currently offer (aside from a couple little kid bikes) will have coaster brakes. That is, this is not a bike that will stop if you peddle backwards. You are good to go.
Will this be a good starter bike for a 9 year old? He's 4'5" Is the size fine? My son is looking to use it for riding with his buddies and also the bike park, he wants to learn tricks and use it at the skate park.
A shopper on Jan 18, 2014
Best Answer:The Sapient Prespica is a great starter bike for a 9 yr old. The size should be fine he may be a little stretched out though.
