Date Reviewed: June 23, 2011

Strengths:    Super strong , nothing has every broke in the 10 years I've had it

Weaknesses:    Grips wear out quick no biggie, handlebars are a little wide(supposed to be for beginners I guess) still have the originals so they must not be that bad, little heavy at first..builds character

Bottom Line:   
Great bike have had since the fourth grade, 22 now and still rides great. If you want a bike thats gonna last get this one well worth it

Date Reviewed: June 9, 2008

Strengths:    frame, rims, pretty much everything BOMBPROOF

Weaknesses:    I would put on a straight brake cable on instead of the giro. But thats it. A little bit heavy but if ur strong enough you can handle it.

Bottom Line:   
I jump this thing every day, over the four-five foot jumps in my backyard. Nothings come loose in years. Great all around bike

Submitted by Mike O. a Weekend Warrior from CA

Date Reviewed: December 31, 2002

Strengths:    Good frame, well-built. I like the handle bars... but, hey, what ever floats ur boat.

Weaknesses:    The grips will go down easily, make sure you have back ups. horrible 2-piece crank, id recommend a 1 or a 2 piece crank.
Its pretty heavy, but once you get used to it its fine.


Bottom Line:   
Very nice bike. Good paint job, but thats not the point. Good Handle bars. Make sure you have an extra pair of grips, they will go down easily (like ALL bike grips do.) Id say to get a 1 or a 2 piece crank. trust me, 1 piece cranks are better than 2 piece cranks. 2 piece cranks crack easily.

Submitted by Chris Voorwinde from Victoria, bc, canada

Date Reviewed: November 26, 2002

Strengths:    Frame:indestructable, the weight is good for hight in jumping(if used right, mine's hit at least18ft. off jumps)the silver "bump" sticker is pimp.

Weaknesses:    stem needs a two bolt fork clamp(mine now rocks back and forth a bit), handle bars are strong but need a bit more knee room for the taller peeps Rims are awesome but i've shattered both the GT hubs replaced rear rim, should've used a post front brake design and Kool-Stop pads all round WELL WORTH THE 600 I PAID THOUGH.

Bottom Line:   
The bottom line. If your into REAL bicycle killing ridding, or dirt jump tricks and can handle 40-50lbs of BMX(depending on set-up) then look for this tank from BMX heaven. Mine weights in at 41Lbs but hit heights around 12ft mutiple times daily, without effort, the balancing of this bike just sends it airborne off jumps. I do not think i'll need another bmx frame ever, some parts mabe, but a frame, 99.9% sure the answer is no.
