Strengths:    i love this bike. i have had it for about 4 years and it hasnt failed. i have never bought any upgrades for it.

Weaknesses:    the pedals are starting to wear down and the chain and chainwheel are getting rusty. the handlebars and stem are stripped. but i am getting new parts and for everythng it is only going to be 130 bucks. the only weakness that "came" with the bke is thatthe frame is a bit too heavy. but it doesnt really matter too much because idont need to et to much air andit is easier to roll and jut wheelie on practice trails.

Bottom Line:   
buy this bike if you arent that concerned about a little extra weight and are looking fr a sturdy dirt jumpin bike.

Strengths:    The stem won't strip and the brakes work good after you get them dialed in. The frame is pretty good for a target bike, very thin tubing on the frame though.

Weaknesses:    The seat, it's hard plastic, and the crank is a one piece so that's not good. The brakes stink until you get them dialed in too. Also the upper gyro cable snaps open easily.

Bottom Line:   
So-so frame, mostly for beginners as far as parts go, buy a better bike so you don't have to spend a ton of money on up-grades.

Strengths:    This bike is good for the money. Good grip on the pegs. Good Tires. this is a light bike at about 33.5 lbs.

Weaknesses:    The 2002 is better for $20 less even. Pegs are threaded, and the axles bend easily. plastic seat. plastic pedals. the brakes suck. Either Get new brakes or new brake pads atleast.

Bottom Line:   
While this bike costs less then some cranks, I think youd rather have the crank.
