Strengths:    tough as hell (rode for more than 9 years!)

Weaknesses:    wheels, cranks, stem

Bottom Line:   
My mom bought me this bike when I was 15(in 2001) and it still rides. the only thing I dont like is the overall weight at 33 lbs its almost 10 lbs heaver than most new bikes these days. plus now all i ride is street and the dirtjumping geometry makes manualing a chore sometimes. i plan on upgrading to a new Verde Cadet or Eon. but im going to strip this frame down and build a shrine for it because it is unreal how much abuse this bike has taken over the years!

Submitted by Jen from Shrewsbury, MA, USA

Date Reviewed: September 5, 2006

Strengths:    When the bike come stock, it's a great way to begin and upgrade later. When I first got into BMX, I wanted a lighter bike that I could use on street and dirt. The frame is tough and will hold up to a lot of abuse.

Weaknesses:    Like I said, I got this bike a while ago and since then BMX technology has gotten much better. The first thing that I replaced on my bike was the handle bars. If you're still riding with stock handle bars then I suggest you get something much smaller. Also the axel size was short, so adding pegs might be hard. The '01 Six Pack came with one piece cranks which I switched out for three piece ones. Also, once you get more comfortable with dirt jumping and getting some air, you'll start to notice the small rake angel of the bike. And since the bike frame is so light, you'll find yourself drifting.

Bottom Line:   
When it all comes down to it, it's a great bike to begin with. You'll have to upgrade parts, but isn't that with every bike? By now, I'm sure the new 2006 DK Six Packs are better. They're coming with 3 piece cranks, pegs, and probably better handle bars not to mention small chain wheels. However, if you're looking for a light frame to throw around whether it be on dirt or street, the Six Pack will do the job in both areas.

Submitted by Tom Blanshard a Weekend Warrior from Leeds England

Date Reviewed: December 10, 2001

Strengths:    The Frame is beast and can stand anything. One of the best frames i have ever ridden on.

Weaknesses:    The bike ways alot and that stops you getting proper big air of half pipes and the bars are pretty shed.

Bottom Line:   
The six Pack is beast its a top quality bmx if you are intresed in dirt its a must but when it comes to street its the worst bike you can get. But overall it is a good bmx and its the strongest bike i've ever ridden. The guy who gave it 1 out of 5 doesn't know JAC.

Strengths:    The frame is one of the strongest I've ridden, and it has a good apperance.

Weaknesses:    The bike weighs way too much, witch makes it almost impossible to get big air.

Bottom Line:   
Good for all riders. Best for expierenced riders because of the weight, but you shoulden't buy it if your looking for a bike that you can race on.

Date Reviewed: May 28, 2001

Strengths:    The Six Pack is smooth and steady ride. At skateparks and on the streets, landings always feel perfect. The Six Pack also looks pretty sick.

Weaknesses:    There isn't much weaknesses, besides that if you get the bike with no modifications the handlebars are to long, making it to where when you try to barspin the bars get stuck by hitting your body. However, this little problem can be fixed by cutting your handlebars.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great for almost anything. It is one of the most dependable bikes ever on the market.Once you have the DK Six Pack, you will never need another bike.

Selecting a Replacement Rear Shock (6.5x1.5) for a 2001 Gary Fisher Sugar

I have a 2001 Gary Fisher Sugar with a Rock Shox Sid rear shock. The shock is not holding air in the negative chamber. I've tried to do as much research as possible, and it appears service kits are no longer available for the shock and it's probably best to just junk it. I wouldn't mind upgrading to ... Read More »
