Date Reviewed: November 7, 2002

Strengths:    It has a great colour and a strong frame.

Weaknesses:    It only has 1pc and they are completely bent already. The stem isnt very good so I have to carry around an allan key to straigten the bars every time I even drop of a kirb! The hubs are not very strong and bend if you do any flatland. The sprocket keeps on bending.

Bottom Line:   
I would only!!! recomend this bike to people that want a BMX only for riding around streets but definatly not people that want a cheep bike for doing stunts on!! It isnt worth the money

Strengths:    The frame is good because even though it is crmo main tubes, it is still a very light bike. When you bunnyhop it you feel like the wind is carrying you away!

Weaknesses:    The handlebars are too wide, even if you cut them down. Needs chain tensioners. Tyres are also crap.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is exellent for the price, and I would recommend it to any beginner up to intermediate (With a few parts changed).

Strengths:    The frame is light and durable. The paint job is superior. It is an all around good bike for the money.

Weaknesses:    The rims are easily damaged. The bike runs very smooth on land and in the air.

Bottom Line:   
Is a great overall bike...durable for dirt jumping and light for easy handling on the street(after a rim change!!!) I would recommend this bike to anyone that is a beginner or intermediate. I only give it a four overall because of the rims.

Strengths:    The Eluders got a great frame and a cool paint job. The headset is very sturdy and the hubs are good.

Weaknesses:    The rims are pretty low quality. Theyre fast but I wouldnt use them for racing. Also the pedals and crankset could be better.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great all purpose bike for anyone. Its great for bmx racing and street racing in all conditions. Its also perfect for dirt jumping. I love this bike and would highly reccomend it to everyone.

Submitted by Justin Gray a Weekend Warrior from Fremont, Ca ,USA

Date Reviewed: September 24, 2000

Strengths:    Definently a great beginner to intermediate bike. Apparently no one elses review liked the brakes, but mine worked great (until i put a oryg on the bike). The stock axles are weak (duh 3/8 suck), the rims are your everyday alum weak rims, but overall the bike is just as good as any other big name brand bike (Haro, GT, Huffy,Hoffman, etc...)

Weaknesses:    Like i said, axles suck, rims suck, but everything else is great. Seat could also be a little more plush !!!**If you put some maxxis 20x2.0 tires on it, it does real well on the street and dirt !!!**

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. It makes the perfect dirt jumping bike, and the perfect street bike (chromoly). I would recommend this bike to anyone who wants a basic bike for the right price !!!

Date Reviewed: June 8, 1999

Strengths:    
looks pretty cool in lime/blue, great beginner bmx bike that won't seem TOTALLY cheap when you get better.


Weaknesses:    
rear wheel got screwed up, components aren't great but work, at free agent website it says it comes with black sun rims and black spokes they're not on the bike if you ofder it from danscomp so if you buy it, buy it from a shop and ask about the rims, don't buy for over $220


Bottom Line:   
this is a great bike but if your like me you'll get bored with it and want a new, better one when you start to get better. i'm buying ao t-bone chioce (the chromoly one so it's stronger for dirt jumping). before i got it, i was at a friends house and i was still looking for a bmx, one of my friends had a SE Quadangle (about $1000 tricked out racing bike, i wanna try to buy it from him cheap cuz he doesn't ride it and he like sister) that i rode,another kid had an eluder, i rode em both and liked the eluder better because it's a better learning bike, geometry is great!it's a good bike to start with and not too much $$$--my advice, buy it, but keep saving money for a better one in a few years. DONT BUY A DIAMONDBACK VIPER!!!!!!!! the extra $30 bucks or so is worth it!!------email me if u have questions.
