Strengths: this thing is bombproof! the frame felt a little heavy at first but i got used to it. very strong frame. nice bike.
Weaknesses: Its heavy at first, and the rims get dented somewhat easily.
very sturdy bike, i recommend it for any level bike rider, this thing was completely worth 60$, i mean i would have paid 400$ for this thing so the owner must have been smoking something that morning to sell it for that price.

Weaknesses: Rims bend, heavy
I wouldn't recommend this for a beginner, because it's heavy. I wouldn't recommend this for an advanced rider, because it'd easily get something wrong with it.
Strengths: Hella Strong Frame good forks and ummm the stem is good too
Weaknesses: well the grips suck and the tires are cheep the back rim sucks when you grind the hub get lose all the time you grind on it. i busted out the bearings in the rear hub DO NOT OVER tighten the bolts on your stem they will brake... Oh ya The Forks POP Out And You Cant Put a Front Peg on and it came with 3/8 's in the front
THIS BIKE IS A GOOD BIKE IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT PARTS ON IT THE STOCK PARTS ARE CRAP BUT THE FRAME IS HELLA STRONG its heavy so its not good for little kids but if your stong you should get this bike
Bike Setup: i replaced mostly everything i put new bars (s&m) New Rims Alex triple walls i got a new seat new grips new tires (snafu rim jobs)i took off all the stickers got new petals new fatty chain

Strengths: This bike is built in the good old USA so you know it is built right. The geometry is perfect for dirt jumping and some park riding.
Weaknesses: Everyone seems to agree its a little heavy for a bicycle frame. The rear end is too big (15' chainstays). The seatpost clamp that is built in does not work as well as a bike with one not built in.
When i first bought this bike i knew that i would never have to buy another again. It had a 1 1/8 headset, which was new to me, and good parts at the time i was riding so i was stoked that i got it.
Strengths: this bike is very very durable and i am not affraiad to try new things with it.
Weaknesses: it is a little more heavy than other bikes by 2or 3 pounds but that doesnt relly make a difference in jumping hight or speed. the durabuility makes up for the weight.
this is a great bike to abuse i still havent fallen once. this bike is for intermediate riders dont buy this bike if you are brand new at this sport. if you consider your self as a pro than this bike may be for you.
Weaknesses: kinda heavy, but whaddaya expect? grips, tires and pedals suck, i replaced them, now its perfect
sweeeet bike, a bit heavy, but it has taken 2 years of abuse, and only a few things are rattling. pretty manuverable.... aww what am i talking about? the bottom line is that this bike will not let you down
Bike Setup: stock, with ati grips, sharkbite pedals and maxdaddy tires

Strengths: Absolute bomb proof, not bad size geometry, comes with half decent parts, good trails bike that won't break!!!!
Weaknesses: too heavy for anything but trails, crap 1pc cranks, hard for young kids or weak people to jump, poor design on the seat post cos it breaks the pin, can't fit a gyro on, crap colour forks, stickers don't peel off without huge sticky marks, seat post too fat, doesn't come with pegs and can only fit gt pegs on, too chunky for me, pedals and grips where out in about 2 seconds.
too heavy and chunky, great for dirt jumpng, parts could be designed better, great first or seond time bmx.
