2020 Kink Gap FC Review

2020 Kink Gap FC Overview

After its hugely successful introduction, the Gap FC continues to feature the same great Gap specs but adds a freecoaster rear hub for making backwards tricks a breeze. Featuring modern geometry, the frame, fork and bars also add some 4130 chromoly into the mix and is available in a classic Matte Guinness Black colorway. Components found on the Gap FC take things up a notch too and are not to be missed.

Not only will it look the part, the 9” Kink Grizzly CC bars, Kink Stryker forks, Kink Bold HRD stem, sealed Mission Deploy freecoaster hub, and Kink Ridge 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks help it to feel and perform the part. The addition of a Stealth seat and seat post are not to be overlooked either and add both adjustability and modern compatibility. Modern frame geometry brings a lower bottom bracket and raised standover height to the Gap FC, for a stable ride.

Highlights

Affordable

My favorite thing about this bike is that it really is affordable.

Lowlights

Hi-tensile rear end

Most of the frame is chromoly. But the back part is hi-tensile. Companies do this to cut costs. With the hi-tensile back end you have a good chance of bending it as you learn abusive spins.

Buy if you are learning:

  • Fakie
  • 180
  • small 360
  • x-up rides
  • bunny hop
  • half-cab
  • Barspin

Don't buy if you are learning:

  • tailwhips
  • 360 stair-sets
  • Big handrails
  • Backflips
  • Tiretaps

Conclusion 🤩

The colors are sick! The parts are strong! 9" inch bars and a freecoaster make this an entry level street machine.
