Strengths:    Affordable beginner's BMX bike. Decent components for the price. The bike can take some mild abuse if you don't bang it up unnecessarily.

Weaknesses:    Its on the heavy side 35-40lbs depending on setup. Kneesaver handlebars broke, sprocket is not meant to take abuse, one piece cranks and unsealed bearings could be replaced with 3 piece sealed.

Bottom Line:   
This is a good bike for beginners who want to get into BMX but don't want to spend too much $. Its pretty much the same as a revo but with a better stem, wheels, and handlebars. I've had it for 7 years now and replaced a bunch or parts as they break, but I still ride it.

Strengths:    The zippo is a good all-around bike. (street, vert, dirt, park)

Weaknesses:    The zippo doesnt have many weaknesses in my opinion but it is heavy and if your uesed to a light bike then i wouldnt buy the zippo.

Bottom Line:   
If you want a good all-around bike and dont care how heavy it is this is the perfect bike for you. But after a cuple years if you ride it hard your bars are prolby gonna break so just be prepared for that amd ya thats about it.

Date Reviewed: August 7, 2001

Strengths:    Strong Tri-Moly Frame. U breaks stop you like rear ending a Ford LTD. Kneesaver Bars standard. Light Weight, nimble feel.

Weaknesses:    A lay-back seat post is a must if you are over 6' or have long legs. Also improves stability for barspins and stronger pole is a must if you weigh over 200lbs.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for the $ if you wanna get into flatland and some ramps. Bulletproof frame and fork set without the pork. set is the only thing you'll wanna replace when you buy it, later the 1 piece cranks will need to be 3 pieceified and some sealed bearing hubz would do nicely when the stock ones fail.
