A company that often goes unnoticed in America is United. With a banger of a team, and a 5ft ginga-ninja as the owner, you know their parts and completes are going to be amazing. Let's take a look at the 2016 United Supreme complete… Coming in at $399.95, you'd be a fool to pass up this amazing complete with all features packed into that price range…
Let's start off with the frame. The Supreme uses 1020 hi ten steel, which is a good quality steel, and will take the abuse of an up and comer. Using the tried and true integrated head tube, your learning barspins will not be stopped by faulty headsets. Keeping the Supreme sleek, they used a Mid bottom bracket, they also revamped the geometry to allow for 2.4 tires, because, you know, you need bigger tires for some reason. Finishing off the look of an aftermarket frame, they used a CNC’d seatstay bridge, and an embossed downtube gusset with United's trademark logo.
Moving onto the forks, the Supreme uses a CNC steerer tube, integrated bearing race, tapered 1020 hi tensile steel legs, making for a sweet look, and high strength for your smith grings. Sticking to the popular trend of higher is better, they put some big bars on there for ya. 9" tall and 28.5" wide 1020 hi tensile steel with larger radius bends, making the bars strong and less likely to bend, with a 2.5° up sweep, 11° back sweep. Keeping your hands on your bars are the United Jimmy grips and United bar ends. The aforementioned headset is a United sealed headset, with a United 50mm reach top load stem with the United logo embossed on the faceplate, and forged detailing on the sides for that swift, aftermarket look.
Wheels, the all-important part of a complete bike. Finding a good, in your price range bike, with sealed wheels is KEY. I can't stress this enough at our store, and I can't stress that enough here. The Supreme has fully sealed wheels. Meaning the front hub and the rear cassette, including the driver is sealed. The 36h United Supreme sealed alloy cassette hub with 14mm axle, sealed bearing 9t driver, and has a four-pawl, ultra loud mechanism. Lot's of companies skip out on a sealed driver, which is the dumbest mistake every company makes. Single-wall’d rims complete the wheels, and a United Supreme 410x chain pulls the drivetrain around with a 25T United steel sprocket, and 170mm United 8 spline tubular cranks move you forward. Nylon United Valentino pedals keep your feet glued to your new complete and are ready for those "crank arm grinds" the kids are doing these days.
Finishing off the bike, your boney ass gets the comfort of United Padded Seat/Post Combo with custom sewn patch on rear, giving off that fresh look. The Supreme gets aired up with United Direct tires in the lovely 2.4 size, ready for your big hops.
Frame Geometry: 20.25TT, HT: 75° / CS: 13.25" / SO: 8.25" / BB: 11.8" / ST: 71°.
The Supreme comes in Gloss Clear Raw, Trans Dark Green, and Trans Gold.
