2019 Fiend Embryo Type B+ Price

In my opinion, the bike is a little over priced. I would just go up a few hundred dollars and get the 2019 fiend embryo type A+.

2019 Fiend Embryo Type B+ Quality

I really think the quality is a little low on the Embryo Type B. Some low end parts include:

  • Single Wall Rims
  • Hi-tensile back end

Everything else on the bike seems pretty good. I just hate single wall rims.

Highlights

Freecoasters

Freecoasters are fun, and good for street riding.

Lowlights

Single wall rims

I really hate single wall rims. They bend :(

Buy if you are learning:

  • Airs
  • 180
  • Tire Taps
  • Foot Jams
  • double pegs
  • feebles
  • pull up barspins

Don't buy if you are learning:

  • tail-whips
  • big stair-sets
  • huge gaps
  • 360
  • Flips

Conclusion 🤩

This bike is best for beginners, however most medium level riders can shred this bike without much breaking. Just go easy on the spins so that your wheels will stay straight.
