Strengths:    Great entry level mini BMX bike

Weaknesses:    cranks to long for little riders (why Powerlite went with 165, when they could have just as easily gone with 155 I don't know)

Bottom Line:   
My son learned to ride at four and was interested in BMX racing. I knew from watching other kids racing with 16" bikes that he would lose interest quickly if he wasn't able to compete (most 16" racers seem to lose steam mid track). We test road a few bikes, most were identical, and finally desided on the P-38. The frame looks like it is sized between the mini and Jr. frames. It came with 1 3/8 inch tires instead of 1 1/8. I feel that this little cromoly bike will be able to handle years of abuse with few minor changes (taller handle bars as he grows). He and I are both very happy with it's performance so far.
