Good bike for the money. I am 6' 2" tall and 250lbs. Have plenty of room. Did have to replace the stem immediately due to slipping. Also replaced the pedals. No problems so far. Allows me to teach my kids to ride and get back into BMX riding myself.
This bike was delivered on-time and without any damage. After assembly, which was quite simple, I was a little nervous that it would be too big for my 12 yr. old daughter. Boy was I wrong! She jumped right on it and loves it! I wanted to get her something larger than a 20" BMX bike but not a mountain bike. She loves the BMX styling and with the cranks and gear ratio of this bike it was the logical choice. My only issue with it is that one of the sets of pegs does not fit the axle. The threads are the incorrect size. I would recommend this bike and The House to anyone looking for a good quality bike at a good price!!
Great value for the price and rides well. It does require maintenance and disassembly upon arrival to properly grease bearings for smooth operation and long life. The neck and seatpost were the only items replaced. I added a laid-back post for more room. Overall very happy with my purchase.
I bought this bike for my teenage son. He had always wanted a bmx style bike, but what he wanted was not in my budget. When I found this bike online, he was skeptical because it is bigger than the typical bmx style bike. After his first ride, he was in love! All of his friends are amazed that he can do everything that they do on their smaller bikes. My son is six feet tall and the Sapient Titan fits him great!
The Sapient is perfect for my son. He is 15 and likes to ride a bike throughout the city and have versatility in the terrain where he rides. The Sapient is great for concrete flat surface riding as well as off road dirt path trails. The bike is durable and sleek. The only draw back is that it is slightly heavy to get in and out of condo living but well worth the effort.
Coming from riding a 20in Freestyle most of my life I was a little skeptical getting a larger fat tire bike. After riding for the first time I totally fell in love with it. The bike is very strong and lighter weight than I had thought. The chain did break a few miles into the ride but was fortunately able to fix on the spot with 2 pliers and have had no issues since. What really made the bike was the customer service. Even with the free sunglasses that came damaged they replaced a sent a new pair. Love The House!
im 6 2 290lbs, i ride this bike. i did however upgrade the seat, seat post, cranks, pedals, handlebars and grips. love it. had to tighten the spokes on both wheels and the front seal on the hub i had to fix it too. but good bike for the money
My 12 year old Grandson loves this bike, it is his favorite. Unfortunately, the first one was stolen when delivered to the wrong house. The second one was stolen in June from his fenced yard. Third times a charm, I hope!
I chose this bike because it was the best deal I could find after searching the net. My son is 12 and needed a bike that he won't outgrow until time for a car, and that will stand up to a 12 year old. Now to see how it does when we get it.
MY HUSBAND & 3 SONS WILL BE JOINING BMX BIKE RACING IN THE SPRING AND I WANTED A BIKE TO MATCH THERE'S BUT FOR EXERCISE AND WHO KNOWS I MAY JOIN IN THE RACING AS WELL. SO WHY NOT BE PREPARED AND GET A STARTER BIKE FOR MYSELF.
This item was purchased form my grandson who is 6 feet tall and he did not find any bike in the stores that we went to that he liked so I told him to try on line so he did. He is fourteen years old so I hope that he is happy when it arrives.
I just needed a good bike that I can cruise on with my daughter that is just learning how to ride. I didn't want the typical adult mt. bike, and the 20" bmx bikes everywhere are a bit of a joke for an adult man. This seemed like a good bike for the price. I won't be doing any hardcore riding or tricks. Love the plain black. Nice looking but not too flashy.
Seemed like a good idea at the time. My boys wanted to get into racing... Figured I would get out there and ride along side them, bad idea. I am 6' 1" and weigh 270 lbs. This bike doesn't really fit me. Its good to cruise on around the block, but that's it.
Im 6" and weigh 360can i get by on this bike just for riding back and forth to work?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2014
Best Answer:No i weigh 210 and during the first week fo riding my titan regularly on paved trails the spokes came loose the bearings on the plastic pedals started to wear thru later that month i had the chain snap on a quick take off and lets jus say my shin will never be the same and not to mention when i went to adjust the gooseneck the bolts were overtightened and the local bike shop had to cut the bolts and replace the gooseneck all together .....hope this helps
No. The bike is very uncomfortable. Let me say it again the bike is very uncomfortable. I'm 6ft 210 pounds and there is plenty of room where your knees want hit the handlebars but the seat is what makes the bike uncomfortable. It's a small seat and after 3 minutes of riding it hurts. I wouldn't recommend this bike for the application you want to use it for. I'll say it one more time it's a very uncomfortable bike and if it wasn't for me trying to be a cool dad with my kids I wouldn't ride it.
My son is 6' tall but he is about 145 pounds. So I think height wise it is fine. You could probably get away with it on the weight side but I would think more importantly you would want to think about comfort if you are riding it to work. Although decent value, this bike seems to be more suited to tricks and stunt riding than one for commuting on a daily basis.
I doubt it, maybe if it had sealed bearings and was chromoly. I'm 6" and 180 and I bent my forks and handlebars and my wheel bearings are popping out. I guess I beat the hell out of it at parks and dirt jumps though. It's now my indoor bike and it helped me learn one handers and I'm working towards barspins.
No, we bought this bike for my son and he was about 5'6" at the time, and it was a stretch for him. The bike was not able to support his weight, the pedal stripped and had to be replaced at a cost of $100.00.
Hi I'm 16 years old and I'm 6'3 250 pounds you think this will be a good bike to ride it around and hit some jumps with it?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2014
Best Answer:I think it should be a good size for you I'm about 6' and sometimes it feels like I have to stretch just a bit to have the bike under me at times but it's a nice size and keeps up easily and you should be able to beat it up nicely
I'm 6'2" 275lbs. This bike as is, is great for cruising and some more mild jumps. If your gonna be hitting bigger things like dirt jumps or skate parks you'll want to upgrade the forks, bottom bracket, brakes, cranks and pedals.
I am 6' 0" and 230 lbs. I have a great time with the bike jumping, grinding, and all around riding. My only issue with the setup is that brakes. They don't stop well at all, and forget about using them for any sort of picks. Other than that, it's a good bike for the price. I used to ride a lot harder and am using it to get back into the whole street riding scene.
Best Answer:Only one coupon code can be used during checkout. The same goes for Gift Certificates, however multiple gift certificates can be used in purchasing if you contact our sales dept at 800.992.7245
Best Answer:Im 6'1" 265 pounds and its pretty good for me... i have the seat extended pretty high, with that its very comfortable. My buddy is 5'7" about 150 and he wants one for cruising, but thinks it might be big for racing. He didnt adjust the seat though... i think it would work well for you.
Best Answer:yes, you just put the front tire on, handle bar and peddles on. The tubes are already in the tires and the brake and grips are already connected to the handle bars. Its a pretty easy build and does not require much tools. Also the chain is already on. The back tire is already on with the brake hooked up, Hope that helped answer your question.

Best Answer:Well my son is 5'7 3/4 loves it. Says it rides fast comparable as far as pedaling in 2nd gear on a mountain bike. Love the store great products.. Don't know how old you are if you think you might grow a couple more inches soon might want a 26" otherwise go for it great bike and a great value
I'm 5'9" and it's more than big enough for me. Eventually I'll put shorter handlebars on because it feels a little too tall for my preference. The top tube length is about an inch longer than most cruisers. Hope that helps.
I have the same bike and im 6'3. It feels very comfortable to me. Depends on what you plan on doing with it. Maybe a little to big if u plan on doing tricks but if ur just gonna cruise it, it should be good.
I'm 5'8 n 230pds n I like dis bike alot but i was wondering would it feel comfortable for my body size like would it b to small any opinions??
A shopper on Aug 26, 2013
Best Answer:I am 5'10" and when I bought this I was 300lbs. so you'll be just fine. It has held my big butt no problem I just really inflate the tires and I've yet to pop one bunny hopping or jumping of curbs. It is a little tricky to wheelie though do to the over sized frame. This bike proved that big guys don't have to ride mountain bikes. I would suggest buying a different head though( I went with one made by stolen) the one it comes with bolts stripped out pretty quick but the frame ,rims, and crank are solid. Hope this helps man.
Best Answer:I have been satisfied with the bike I'm 5'9 as well and used the bike as my primary sorce of transportation for a 6 month period. The hubs and bottom bracket are not high quality but you can't get a better price on a complete bike.
I'm 5'11" and 190lbs and plan on racing on a bmx track, is this a good bike for that?
A shopper on Feb 12, 2014
Best Answer:Good bike quality good and for the money very nice. However if you want to be competitive this is not the bike. It's good for moving around the track with my kids and giving them a run for their money but when I get off the ground and have rough landings the handle bars slip and no matter how tight I get the neck they move. Race bike are also very light this bike is not so it takes a little more to get air.. But all that aside I love my bike and would recommend it to anyone.
I'm 5'11 220lbs ( mostly muscle..lol ) and the bike seriously is perfect. standing on its own it looks a little big for a bmx bike but i promise you once i ride just the same. the size also make the bike much more comfortable. and what pretty cool is i received a pair of skull candy headphones and a (the House) skully with my order
I bought the bike for my son. He is 5' 10" and weighs about 140 to 150 lbs. He absolutely loves the bike. He doesn't race the bike, just jumps, hops, and does tricks. So I cannot say if the bike would be good for racing. The bike would definitely handle your height and weight. Hope this helps.
I wish I could tell you ,I ordered this bike but they wouldn't ship it to my work address so I canceled my order . Decent for the price so I've read I'd probably get something a little better quality to save yourself switching out all the junk parts on it
Best Answer:The Sapient Titan BMX bike will work great for you! The biggest thing you will wanna look for when shopping for a bike (depending if you want gears or not) is the wheel size. You are going to want something 24-26" wheel size.
is the sapient titan 24 inch bmx bike made for big dirt jumps or street style course aka ramps or just street like steps, rails and manual pads because i way really close to 300 and i am 6,6 not fat and wide just tall and a little thick my friend has the bike but we never did tricks on it just ride around because he and i are afraid we will break or bend the bike or bend the rim or the tire will pop easally and i want the bike so i can do street and ride ramps even if i was 200 do you think the bike is made for bmx street and ramps and dirt will it hold bend or break or the tire will pop when i go up a ramp and land?????????
A shopper on Sep 10, 2014
Best Answer:Hello, I purchased the Sapient Titan fir my husband to go on bike rides with me and the kids, he hates mountain bikes, but he is a big fan of the BMX Bikes, he is 165 and 6' tall, he does little jumps off curbs and speed bumps, nothing big yet. The bike seems to be holding for him, not sure if this will help, but here's my input.
The rims and tires are great, however the frame and fork wouldn't hold up. You would be better off with an actual dirt jump bike. I have had mine in the air but was worried the entire time. This bike is made just for street cruising.
My son loves to jump things would this be a good bike for them?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2013
Best Answer:I've had mine several months, and had zero mechanical problems. I jump mine often, usually between 5-15ft air. The frame and fork are high tensile steel and the wheels are double walled. I'm 6'2 and weigh 205lbs. I did have to add a laid-back seat post for added room. Very pleased with this bike.
As long as your son is tall enough for the bike its a great beginner bike for street/dirt jumps just makesure everythings tightened up well or take it to a bike shop for assembly and youll be good to go if hes a smaller guy id go with a 20" instead of a 24"
It depends how big/tall your son is. If he is really tall..over 5' yes. Otherwise get the 20". My son has that one and jumps it all the time. They are really well made and lighter weight than some of the others out there.
Best Answer:Yes you can go off road with this bike, but not to long before the bearings wear out due to the wheels not having sealed bearings. If you are a casual rider go for it, if you are trying to get the very best out of your bike I'd say get a bike with sealed bearings.
I have the 22" model... you can but I went over some plants with thorns and popped the tires. You may need to invest in some tube protection if you do. Also, the 22" replacement tube is hard to find... 24" is everywhere for like $6.
Best Answer:My wife and I bought these for our children in 2012! They were 6,8&10 at the time and are still riding them now. The Sapient Titan is a great quality bike and requires very little assembly out of the box. You will definitely enjoy your purchase!!!!!
I think this would be a good size. I bought this for my son when he was about your height. He is about 5' 8" and he atill rides it. It you are looking for a bike to do tricks you might look for a 20". We are very satisfied with this bike.
This bike is good for kids age 6-16 and under 150lbs. It's made of Hi-Ten steel which is really weak. (I bent my forks first day).. I am 6 ft 3 and 240 lbs. This bike is big, but not strong. I would recommend getting a 100% chromoly bike from MirraCo or Specialized. You get what you pay for with this one....
Im new to bmx and im not sure if the bearings are sealed or not?
A shopper on Oct 23, 2013
Best Answer:Don't think so, This bike was bought for a 240 pound rider and it gets a lot of hard use, Have not had any reason to remove and or replace any parts yet. Great bike for the money, The rider is 15 years old now and we expect this bike to take him to his driving days. Good Luck
Is it possible to bunny hop 180 or 360?? Beside that I would be mostly commuting. 5'7 200pounds btw
A shopper on Oct 16, 2013
Best Answer:I am 220 and 6' tall, the size is good, but if you want to do anything more than ride it on flat ground, spend the money on a better bike. I have $300+ in new parts already and am changing the rims next. So go for the GT or SE and you will be much happier.
Best Answer:Can you put fenders on it ? Yes , however they would have to be custom made. There are fenders that fit 24 in tires but are mainly for cruiser bikes and mountain bikes etc and not for bmx bicycles. I hope this helps
Best Answer:Holly, Good Day! Going by the charts for BMX bikes (type of bike matters), it is suggested he would be best with a bike with a top tube length between 16" and 17.5" maybe 18 for growth. This Sapient Titan bikes are a bit big. Example: http://www.the-house.com/qfrimp18kbre14zz-framed-bmx-bikes.html Note that this info is for BMX style bikes specifically. You can also chat with our bike shop for more info: 1 (800) 409-7669.
Best Answer:I bought this bike for my grandson, so I cannot measure it for you, but I can tell you it's a great bike, well made, and he loves it. I could try to get it for you, are you talking about from the seat to the handlebars?
I am highly considering getting this bike as my first one. My only concerns are that is this bike the right size for a 17 yr old 180 pound 6 ft tall guy. And I am wanting to start riding but I want a bike that I can interchange parts to beef it up as I progress. Is this a good choice?

im 5'10, i used it to get me from A-B.... it is so much fun to ride... if your a beginner and not looking to do any hardcore tricks, this bike is right up your street!!! It looks fantastic too in the flesh... so good mine got stolen last week, make sure you get a good lock for it!!!
This bike is hi-ten steel, which is not very strong for jumping.. Go with a 100% cro-moly frame and fork if you want a bike that will last a few jumps.. sorry.. I bought this bike and bent the forks 1st day.. you get what you pay for
I'm 5'9" and it is perfect , it just feels right my son is 16 yrs old and about5'8" and he has a regular 21in fit bike and now he is always on my bike. Dude you won't be disappointed I was'nt, hopefully this helps you out good luck.
My son has this bike and at 5' 8" felt a 20" bike was too small... he loves this bike... at 6'2" I find it a little small when seated but love it to just goof around on... very nice 24" for the money....
