Strengths:    Durable as hell, takes all sorts of beatings. Fast acceleration.

Weaknesses:    Heavy.

Bottom Line:   
This bike kicks around really well, the wheels are better than most, and the components are great. I would think about switching the frame for something lighter in the future, but could keep almost everything else. But hey I got this bike for the cost of a new chain, and then bought some bars from a friend.

Strengths:    The stock wheelsets are complete and absolute brick-houses.

Weaknesses:    First off, the frame is not completely Chromoly. The 3-star is has steel stays. You will understand the downside when lifting it. It is heavy! The brakes will only slow, not stop you (bad geometry?). Chainstays dent easily. Uses an oversized bottom bracket.

Bottom Line:   
I don't really see this as a bike for anyone. A child needing a recreational bike would do better with a trailbike. Any child who is seriously getting into BMX will find this bike too heavy. I am 5'11', 24 yrs, and decently muscular. This bike was a workout. The only person I would recommend this too, is a late teen who needs an inexpensive bike to try out BMXing. The big advantage is that when upgrading to a new frame, you will have almost all the parts you need. Even though I purchased a new frame, I still ride with the same seat, wheels, pegs, and pedals. I can not express how tough these wheels are!

Strengths:    First off I got this bike for my birthday two years ago and this bike has never had a problem. Its frame is great and has never had any trouble plus with the smooth paint this bike looks awsome. I love the weels and the tires are great, but you may have to buy new ones after a while and if you do dirt get dirt tires. One thing I think alot of people dont care about is the seat. What I hate is when I see some spoiled brat complaining on their 700$ Dyno that their @ss hurts. I mean come on already but the Mosh 3 stars seat is great I think. Thats about all.

Weaknesses:    This product with its positivs also has its negatives. First off the brakes suck. If a 300 mile per hour car was coming right at me and I had to use my brakes Id be dead. I think the gyro is whats screwin it up but the gyro is cool so i just left it. The chain guard broke off. You cant get any speed on this bike. Get your hands on a three peice crank because the one piece it comes with wont get you anywhere. Take mosh pegs off. Feel how freekin heavy they are. You dont want those crapbars on your bike. One more slight thing is that the handle bars are a little to long.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a must have for begginers or vets. I think that mosh deserves some credit. would write more but I have to go. This great bike is a must have!!!!

Date Reviewed: September 5, 2001

Weaknesses:    I did replace the cranks, not because they were bad, I just like 3 piece better. I can see the wheels getting bent if you ride hard without keeping enough air in the tires.

Bottom Line:   
This bike flat out rules!!!! I bang all the rails hard and this thing hasn't give an inch! I've bent the dropouts on just about every bike I've had but this one is hanging tough. Plus the Raw finish just looks awesome.
