Strengths:    Its a good bmx for me as im small so i like the size

Weaknesses:    the seat! ooooooooow comes to mind oh and the chain too

Bottom Line:   
i really love my ignitor but i don't know why as the chain broke and i keep falling off. i've taken it over ramps and dirt jumps and generally ridden it about and i think it can get quite a good bit of speed but i really really hate the seat!

Date Reviewed: May 23, 2003

Strengths:    Strong frame, good brakes

Weaknesses:    crap tires, small seat, wierd seat post

Bottom Line:   
This frame is ok, but the seat and post are screwed up. I am 14 and there is no way that i could even fit on it. I had to put a new seat and post just to ride it. The diameter of the seat post is also wierd. Its smaller then the arerage bike. It also can only be raised about 6 inches.

Submitted by a Weekend Warrior from Cairns, QLD, Australia

Date Reviewed: July 29, 2000

Strengths:    Frame, handlebar, grips, crankset

Weaknesses:    Rear brake (Alloy), chain stay, seatpost, chain,

Bottom Line:   
I rode my bike everyday to school and well, after a while, the chain broke, this is a good bike ONLY IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST BMX, very good price. The rear brake sucks but the front brakes is fairly good. Be very careful about getting this bike because my Haro RI got stolen and I'm fed up with this bike. Think about the height of the seatpost when you are putting it up because it snapped in half when I put it up too high and went racing.
