The 2021 Stolen Overlord is perfect for medium height riders that need a stronger bike than the basic Walmart one. It is a beginner level bike that is street-ready, coming with 4pc bars and 2 pegs. The white color option is sick and it weighs around 25.5lbs without the pegs.
The Stolen Overlord features an updated design for greater receptiveness and control suited to street riding and technical skatepark sessions. It's been engineered with geometry that includes a longer top tube and is kitted out with a sealed integrated headset, sealed hubs, Fiction Mythos pedals, Sumo sprocket guard, and 2x grind pegs - this bike is ready to hit the streets, launch gaps and land grinds with style.

Getting a top tube that is taller than suggested will make the bike feel more controlled and less responsive
Getting a top tube size that is smaller than normal will make the bike feel a lot more snappy and responsive.
This is a really long chainstay.
A short chain stay makes the bike feel twitchy. Spins will be easy, but airing and jumping might feel hard to control.
A long chain stay will make the bike feel really controlled. Spins will feel sluggish, but manuals and air tricks will feel nice because it will be more stable.
Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.
A less steep head tube gives you more control.
This is a tall standover.
A tall standover makes your seat higher up and will allow you to pinch it easier when learning barspins.
Riding a tall rise, will give you more leverage on the bike. Making it easier to pull back and lift the front wheel up.
This is a wide width.
Narrow bars make barspins easier.
Wide bars give you more control and stability when steering.
As far as I know, there is a sweet spot for backsweep. Too much will make the bike feel weird, and too little will make the bike unstable. It seems like the sweet spot is around 11º to 12º. If you need something a little more aggressive and straight feeling, go for 10º, but only do this if 11º is uncomfortable.
This is a normal upsweep!
There is a lot of discussion about 1º upsweep vs. 4º upsweep. Some people are running experiments and testing if the greater upsweep will make drops feel better. It seems like a lot of street riders run 4º to 5º upsweep. This helps for wrist pain and lessens the impact of big drops.
For $409 you're getting a beginner level bike with some pegs and four-piece bars. This is an OK deal although it's not the best quality and a lot of bikes this quality are a little cheaper. It does add parts to make it worth it. But remember that this is a beginner-level bike so if you riding at a mid-level this is going to break very quickly.
So I don't think that the quality is that bad, and I do really like the guard sprocket, four-piece bars, and pegs. Not many bikes at this level come with that kind of quality and it is a nice little added bonus especially for a beginner rider who wants to focus on street riding. Now the hi-tensile steel frame overtime will bend along with the bars and Forks. So if you're riding and taking it easy on the bike you're going to be just fine until you start progressing to the level where you doing some hefty tricks.
Overall, the 2021 stolen overlord is a good choice if you're a beginner level rider and you love street riding. Now the 20.75-inch frame is a little bigger than most beginner level bikes so make sure that this is the right size for you. And double-check the tricks that it is good for to make sure that you're not going to absolutely destroy it. You can put the pegs on whichever side you want especially because the sprocket has a guard on it. And then everything on this bike is fully customizable meaning that you can replace it with almost any replacement part. This is really cool because then you can customize it however you want.
