  • Hey guys!

    Anyone heard of them? I just saw a guy in Norway selling bikes with some parts from Eightinch, and they're VERY cheap (30$ for track bars and 139$ for a wheelset for example), but I have no idea if they're any good or not..

    Cheap isn't good, but how bad can they be?
    Their framesets look dangerously like unipacs though..

  • Lol

    i was gonna start the same topic...
    cheap everything!
    i bet some of this brands like pake, blb, eightinch, generic... might be from the same supplier in china. same product.

  • I've been using a crankset of theirs since August/Septemberish, no problems, but I'm hardly the best person to judge, as a ridiculous weed who probably couldn't swing a hammer hard enough to dent it. I reckon you get what you pay for though. I wouldn't feel entitled to whinge too much if I'd got it and thought it was crap.

  • frame/fork/headset for just $150 ... what's up with that?
    will it fall apart when i drive???

    also 48h wheelset for $200

    too good to be true?

  • I have seen a review of some of their parts on lockedcog.com http://www.lockedcog.com/bikes/eighthinc¬≠h-full-review and it seems that he likes it. I have talked to the main seller on ebay and they seem like a really good company and I am seriously considering getting one for my next build with the cranks and a cog. I have only seen good reviews of the frame as well.

  • I've had the frame/forks OTR for a few months and so far it has been fine. Its heavy, but for the price I have no complaints. Also the service from Eighthinch was excellent.

  • Got the crankset and so far no complaints.

  • does anyone have a set of their bullhorns? it doesn't say how wide they are anywhere. only $16!

    also, did they ship to the UK without any issues? thanks.

    shipped to n.ireland no probs. was with fedx and took less than a week.

  • The shipping for mine was ridiculously fast, three days or something? Got a separate tax bill, ¬£13 or so (for the crankset and a cog).

  • Sorry to resurrect but do they ship their frames to UK?
