Strengths:    it can take a serious beating(and i usually beat the crap outa bikes) i had to get the bars cut about 1 1/2" which really improved my barspin.

Weaknesses:    the pedals werent that tough and i had to replace them. the bike is kinda heavy but i got over that.

Bottom Line:   
i would have definitly chosen this bike again if i had the chance for a new one. its probably the toughest bike i have ever owned. i would really recommend this to a serious jumper.

Date Reviewed: January 5, 2002

Strengths:    super heavy duty design. everything is massive, cannot forsee much breakage. kick ass rims (alex supra E(sigma)), super tough. the toughest headset money can buy (FSA pig downhill), cro mo 3 piece crank (i love the look), sealed bottem bracket, monster bars, unless ure shoulders are the width of a pinstick they can be cut down plenty enough to include brakes, high class shielded ball bearing wheels
MONSTER rear drop-outs


Weaknesses:    hubs not sealed but are still high class shielded ones though, brake takes a while to break in. weight.

Bottom Line:   
absolutely awesome. perhaps a bit on the heavy side but that is the sacrifice you have to make for strength. i dont really give a sh*t, i'll get used to it. looks like a brick sh*thouse, unbreakable. nice graphics. got the bike on close out so i save about $600 NewZealand $$$$. bikes are usually quite expensive down here.intend to upgrade like the previous guy to odyssey evolver and modulever with a brake barsted so the cable never splits from the lever to the brake. also plan to add profile blackjack. the reary drop-out is absolutely massive, it looks sick as. feels like a dream in the air. i am so glad that i bought it.

Date Reviewed: December 23, 2001

Strengths:    Fair price (closeout deal) for such an overbuilt bike. Good looks, decent house brand parts.

Weaknesses:    No real weaknesses. The rear brake takes a while to break in and it's flexy. It's quite heavy but built to last.

Bottom Line:   
Overall a great bike at a good price. I'm 5'10" and about 185 pounds and I haven't hurt anything on the bike in the 3 months I've had it. It is heavy, but it's built to last. It may be a little too much for a younger rider but if you're big and hard on bikes and parts go for it. The rear brake stinks, but it's relatively cheap to upgrade. The Odyssey Evolver is the only 990 style brake worth it's salt. Go buy one and give it a beatin'.

Strengths:    good bike good parts well thought out as comes with everything you could need

Weaknesses:    too big a back end for ramp riding and the tubes dent quiet easy Also if you like to ride on narrow bars theese bars ca't be cut down muck if you want to use a break as no even a oversized one fits

Bottom Line:   
good bike dont need to change much maybe the crank if you jump big as if flexes to much for my liking and i wayabout 65kg so ant that heavy

Date Reviewed: September 18, 2001

Strengths:    A tough, well spec'd bike. Must have been dreamed up by a rider. Usually on dirt jump bikes wheels, stem and seats get totalled in no time but after some good thrashing the bike still goes strong. (Im around 6"1 & 90kg)

Weaknesses:    needs stronger platform pedals. Probably good on race or street bikes but not quite up to heavy landings. possibly needs strong handlebar plugs but this is lacking on most bikes

Bottom Line:   
No more need to spend heaps of $$$ to build a bike from scratch. Everything is sealed, alloy and strong
