Strengths:    The frame is light and strong. Really stiff in the bottom bracket, but rides smooth. The top tube is a little long for my taste, but I have never cracked my kneecaps, so it's good. The light weight of the frame makes it real easy to make midair adjustments over jumps.

Weaknesses:    The white pant looks great when it's new, but it's real easy to scratch and ding. once you do, it starts looking like crap quick.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this as a frame/fork/stem kit, so I cannot comment on the component quality, but this is a good solid frame for a rider that just likes to get out and goof around. Maybe not for hardcore dirt or ramp jumping; I wouldn't be pulling 30 foot doubles on it regularly, but for semi-casual riding or amateur racing it will last you as long as you want to keep it.

Strengths:    Bloody strong from , never had a problems with this 20 something year old frame.Rides like a dream, fast, turns really well at any speed. Very Light.

Weaknesses:    Wheels will die before the fame. Hards getting parts to fits at times. IE new fishbone stem had to be machined to fit frame. Front original forks had very tight drop outs!

Bottom Line:   
This is a GREEN 1984 ish bike, Never seen another green supergoose apart from mine and believe me ive searched! Always turns old skool heads, and new skool as well. Love this bike to bit and id kill the person who nicked it if I caught them. Rides like a old skool Pro Burner. Good for trails and such.
