The Kink Gap XL is just that, an extra-large 21” toptube version of the tried and true Kink Gap. Featuring modern geometry, the frame, fork, and bars add some 4130 chromoly into the mix for extreme durability. It's available in two great colorways: Gloss Platinum Edge Fade and Gloss Trans Deep Purple Edge Fade, both sure to turn head and inspire envy. Components found on the Gap XL take things up a notch and are not to be missed. Not only will it look the part, the taller 9.25” Kink Buffalo CC bars, Kink Stryker forks, Kink Bold HRD stem, sealed Mission Engage cassette hub, and Kink Ridge 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks help it to feel and perform the part. A Pivotal seat and seat post add both adjustability and modern compatibility, while modern frame geometry brings a lower bottom bracket and raised standover height to the Gap, for a stable ride.

I bought this bike new. In less than a month a whole pedal and crank snapped off, revealing a screw completely stripped from about a third down, and a damaged crank. I took really good care of the bike, storing it inside and putting oil on the chain after a good ride. I'm disappointed in the Kink company. They do not live up to their company message. From what I have experienced they use cheap parts and don't quality test. The bike is currently back at Twowheeler dealer being repaired. As of now I recommend choosing a different company then Kink. Their faulty product has heavily inconvenienced me (walking around with a broken bike, and pedal wasn't what I planned to do when going for a bike ride) and put me in danger ( I was biking along a road when the pedal snapped off). In short I was sold a defective bike that has inconvenienced me, which is a shame since it was a really fun bike to ride while in one piece.
the bike is light weight. but after a while the forks will bend after a many times of hard riding.the tires arent the best either. i recomend kink foundation forks with badger bars and odyssey mike aitken tires 2.25 with heavy duty tubes. all together this bike is a great beginner bike.
