Date Reviewed: May 15, 2011

Strengths:    This has a very smooth ride, compared to my other bikes.

Weaknesses:    One Piece Crank could be a 3 piece, but overall that is. and also the 4 piece bars. It also doesn't have sealed bearings, and its kind of a pain greasing.

Bottom Line:   
Very good product to buy for your money's worth. I defiantly recommend this bike for a beginner bmx rider.

Submitted by Joe from Anaheim, CA, U.S.A.

Date Reviewed: October 22, 2003

Strengths:    Strong frame(I'm pretty heavy), good geometry(handles well) and good stock components.

Weaknesses:    A little on the heavy side, one-piece cranks, seat guts stripped, single wall rims and brakes are a little weak.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for beginner to intermediate freestyle rider. Comes with good stock components. A little heavy but weight can be shed throughout the bike(lighter parts, trim bars,etc.). Very stong considering it is only partly chromoly. Simple but good design. Attractive looks. Most shops are selling these cheap these days. 2001s, the last real GTs(pre-Pacific Cycles).

Bottom Line:   
Very nice bike, good for a little of evrything. Very strong, it will last a while. Nice handlebars. Good for anyone whos intermediate, or even higher. I think its a little too heavy for beginners, but even if you are a beginner, youll get used to it after a while, and it will seem light.

Strengths:    the bars, and neck are awesome, the seat, hubs and airbag tires are good too

Weaknesses:    definitely the cheap a** one piece cranks, heavy, brakes are good if you don't need to stop...

good strong bike just watch the bars when you kip, they'll bend like your mom getting a dollar out of a port-o-toilet, overall the bike is good with potential. as soon as i rob someone i'm gonna get pretty much new everything.
