Date Reviewed: January 21, 2001

Strengths:    Strong frame, fairly good 2 pce, excelent forks, fairly descent headset and a good enough ride, good enough lookin


Weaknesses:    horrible rims, tyres, brakes, disc, cog after 3 months, handlebars, grips, paintjob, seat

Bottom Line:   
this was a fairly descent bike when i got it. basically a beginners bike somewhat heavy at first after a while you get usedt to the weight and soon able to do 180's on flat then rims become a problem with the stock ones being terribly poor overall its a good beginners bike but if your serious about bmxing i wouldnt bother

Bottom Line:   
THIS BIKE CANNOT BE COMPARED TO IN TERMS OF DURABILITY ITS WAY OVER THE REST. ITS BUILT TO LAST. AS FOR THE RIDE, IT TAKES A BIT TO REALLY SETTLE IN TO, IT WAYS THE SAME AS MY MOUNTAIN BIKE 26.5 POUNDS, FOR THE WHIEGHT IT REACTS EXTEMELY WELL AND QUICK. IT WILL TAKE A COUPLE OF AIRBORN TRIPS TO REALIZE THE BALANCE BUT NOTHING DRASTIC. THE ONLY CHANGE I DID MAKE WAS, I BEEFED UP THE CHAINRING TO A 48 TOOTH (BIG DIFFERENCE).
