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.

Bottom Line:   
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.

Strengths:    everything its unbreakable

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
i was pisst when i woke up and found out someone had broken into my garage during the night and stolen both my bmx bikes redline and free agent especially because i had just put brand new rims on the redline the day before and didn't even to test them out
i am still mad about it but not as mad because this Gt is my most favorite bike ever i absolutely love this bike and when i was talking to this guy at the pawnshop and he told me about a bike in the back that they just that day after i saw it and then found out how much he would sell me it i had to get it and my sister let me barrow the money from her when i got the bike it was completely stock and looked like it had never been used before it was a killer deal and over this 5 months or so i have completely changed everything on it it was origanly silver but my dad paints cars so we stripped it down and resprayed it with black paint that my dad had just used on a bmw he did a perfect job you cant even tell its been repainted and then i ordered the sticker kit for it online after i got it back together it was perfect i love taking it out and showing it off other people have even offered me money for it but i wont sell it i am keeping it for ever this bike is seriously unbreakable and hits jumps perfectly i live a 10 minute bike ride away from miles of just open mojave desert with lots of jumps and i am always out there abusing this bike and its still perfect as the day i got it this bike going to last me for ever it might be heavier then most bike but it seriously doesn't even affect you at all
i would say this bike is for anyone that needs a good strong bike that is going to last them
i would have to give this bike a rating from 1-10 it would have to be a 20 absolutely the best

Strengths:    um.....

Weaknesses:    Rims bend, heavy

Bottom Line:   
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.

Submitted by J Miller a Weekend Warrior from California

Date Reviewed: January 10, 2002

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.

Bottom Line:   
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.

Bike Setup:   When i bought it it came with 1 piece cranks, the oversized seatpost and guts where a joke. Bars, stem, wheels, headset, and fork where all good quality.

Date Reviewed: July 16, 2001

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.

Bottom Line:   
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.

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.

Bottom Line:   
too heavy and chunky, great for dirt jumpng, parts could be designed better, great first or seond time bmx.
