After 10 years on 26" bikes that look like legit BMX bikes, it was time to cop the new freshness. That chameleon green got me, and I thought "How much of a difference can it be from 26 inch wheels to 24?" The answer is a HUGE difference. The difference was felt and capitalized on immediately. Everything is smaller, but not too small. This is what muscle memory tells me riding a 20" feels like, and my knees don't have to argue. Tricks started coming back, sometimes multiple tricks a day. Wallrides, footplants, fastplants, got my hops back well enough to start going UP stairs. Modern geometry makes it all feel right- especially that head tube angle! 74.25 is actual riding geometry, not the 71 or 72 degree heads on a lot of 26's. You have no idea how cool the green is until you get it in the sunlight, and that's the only shortcoming on this bike after 2 months: the topcoat of the paint was chipped in multiple places upon delivery. The bike is well packed and protected, but it seems like the application process is missing something. Is it a deal breaker? No. Definitely not. Oh, and while you're at it, swap out the stock brake pads for something clear like Odyssey's and swap the brake cable for a Slic Kable because the stock housing binds when you spin the bars. I'm throwing a new star nut and front brake set up on it this week and then it's time to see if there's any flatland tricks I can get back. This is a really solid, all around modern bike with everything you need. Next time you find one, don't sleep!
Couldn't be happier with the Saint and the customer service is awesome!
I am very pleased with Stolen!!! Before I had purchased the bike, I had no idea what it looked like. So I asked if they would send me a picture, to see if I’d even like it. And pretty quickly I was emailed a picture, and knew that was the bike I was going to purchase. The 2021 Saint 24 dark grey, with the red rims, I absolutely love it! I’ve taken a ride every day since I got it! It’s a beautiful bike, thank you Stolen!, and David for the great customer service. Im glad I found your company. I’ve been waiting at least a year to buy a bike. I just could never find one I liked, until I saw that 24 Saint.
Absolutely love this 2021 Saint! The Chameleon Green is a great color that photos just don't capture. Bike rides great, smooth and solid. Superb customer service from Ryan G. @ Stolen when I had some questions. Perfect geometry for a 24", rides like a 20" for us tall guys! A++++++
I own a 2019 Saint model and I 100% love it. I live in San Diego and use it every day to go to and from work. Cruising down big hills is a dream on this beast and I can't help but to laugh out loud at how fun it is to ride. Before I owned model, I had a sweet Red Line and before that a GT. Bikes in San Diego get JACKED and I knew that with the brand name here, high odds I could get jacked again.
I owned the bike for less than 2 weeks when it got jacked, Downtown in front of the courthouse in broad daylight. I locked everything up good with the KRYPTONITE NYC FUGGETTABOUTIT lock, and that product was good to its word. Everything I locked up was still there, locked up.
The handlebars, brake system, front forks, and front wheel system all got jacked, ripped out savagely.
Took what was left right back to the shop I bought it from here in San Diego and had to get after market new parts to get it back on the road.
I love this bike and have ZERO complaints about the way it rides and handles.
The only downside to owning one of these nice ass bikes is that the Gucci brand name pretty much makes it a challenge/professional interest for the bike thieves to target you and you have to be extra extra triple extra careful where you lock it up and I even welded Ball Bearings into each hex nut bolts on the 3 piece front system to prevent more thievery.
