Strengths:    the GT parts on the bike

Weaknesses:    its heavy made out of steel, that is chrome plated.

Bottom Line:   
only buy this if you want a neighborhood rider , this is not a light weight frame and is not for race use,its a FAKE ,but looks like a racer thats about it,I've owned em all and it is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to Robby's,its their starter bike i guess

Date Reviewed: February 6, 2007

Strengths:    It's a strong, long lasting bike. I have had it for eight years, and all I've had to replace are tubes, tires, chain, and brake pads. Light-weight for what it's made of. Tektro v-brakes are the best out there. Strong cranks.

Weaknesses:    heavy one-piece crank. The frame is made out of high-tensile steel, which is heavy material. Rims get banged up after vigorous use. Stock freewheel and chainring are only compatible with 1/8" chains. Therefore, the chain is heavy, giving the bike unnecesarry weight.

Bottom Line:   
Great beginner's bike, or for someone who wants a bike that will last forever that will get someone from point A to point B. Not good for serious racing.

Strengths:    Frame is strong and does not flex, the mohawk hubs are also strong , the tektro brakes are also good brakes.

Weaknesses:    the rims they bend if u ride a little hard, cranks are 1-pc and ball bearings popped out so replace em w/3-pc, handle bars are way too long, change grips they hurt seat is ok but bent on a landing

Bottom Line:   
great beginer bike frame has nice geometry and is pretty light for hi-tensile steel so if ur starting out buy it then.
