Strengths:    Ive had the bike for almost 9 years its an earlier model Pure Bender Spin I believe one of the first Fisher made. It has a good strong frame along with other strong parts.

Weaknesses:    The bike is very heavy compared to other BMX bikes. The Neck is very weak I sheared my bars off doing small jumps. Older style side pull brakes are weak with stopping power.

Bottom Line:   
Its a good entry level bike for bigger/ stronger riders who can handle the weight. Cost is also right in the pocket. Aside from the neck all the parts are tough and take quite a beating.

Strengths:    strong frame, strong parts, great price, Cool color, gary fisher name.

Weaknesses:    strong frame with cheap price means heavy bike.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike at a great price. A little heavy for some kids but its truely a strong bike that will last a while and is definately worth every peny. A little on the small side for big guys but it's still managable. A good deal for the price and definately in contention with the more expensive bikes out there.

Strengths:    strong frame cool color gary rules ...

Weaknesses:    head set sucked, pedals sucked, seat sucked, cables sucked but they were the wrong ones any ways.

Bottom Line:   
look if you buy this bike spend the money on a new stem.
I had mine break last summer and cause me a trip to the doc's office with roadrash from my wrist to my under arm + a fractured hand. POS. otherwise the bike is really strong ...gary needs to spend a little more time with S&M Dk and Hoffman so he can swag some GOOD parts for the BMX line.

Strengths:    it is an awesome bike!!! awesome color, and heavey duty frame. a car would run over it and not even hurt it. Look, this bike is great!! mine has some weaknesses wich i crued, but also cause i wanted to put money into it. you'd like it!!!

Weaknesses:    pedals, switch to metal/steel, rather than plastic!!! Primo meat tenderizers!! seat, hey, you don't wana have any type of surgery that might hurt your marrige life!!!-get a better seat!! Stem, okay, but an s&m redneck would be awesome. the headset is junk, but whose to say it is not me. these are the weaknesses i had, but maybe it is because i need to tighten a few bolts, but the stuff listed in here are thing that make it the bomb!!

Bottom Line:   
this bike is a great bike. it is a flashy yellow which is cool, and it has a nice design to it. you'd like it if you don't want to spend more than 300.00 dollars. I recommend it because alot of people don't have Gary Fishers in my area, that's why i bought it. It was either this bike, or a haro shredder,which i am glad i didn't get!!!
