Strengths:    It looks really cool, nice gusseting and welds, the frame and most compnents are strong. Comes with a 3-piece crank.

Weaknesses:    Nothing is sealed, Ive bent my forks, and the brakes arent very powerful. The tires wore down quickly.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is pretty nice, IF you plan on buying aftermarket parts for it, but if your gonna run it stock, rock it with a GT, theyre made much better and mostt of them are sealed.

Strengths:    Sweet Frame, Gussets
Long Top Tube

Weaknesses:    The idiots at the shop didnt tell me I was buying a 1999 model in May 2000. I found out when I checked the DB web site.

Bottom Line:   
This is my first real BMX bike and Im 23-I sold my 2000 C-Dale Jekyll 900SX, and bought this bike at 1/5 the price. Its about 10 time more fun. This is the first bike I paid retail for in almost 10 years. I work at a shop and could have gotten a GT, Haro or Schwinn for half the price or less. We have some sweet dirt jumps set up and this bike loves it. I use it for dirt jumping, street and some trials riding. Im just an MTBer trying to be a BMXer. TRY A BMX BIKE!
