Strengths:    i like the name, same setup as the fatboys. i actually own the 2000 fatgirl, not the 1999, but i didnt see a space for it.

Weaknesses:    not good for serious abuse.

Bottom Line:   
i used this bike at woodward when i worked there a few years back as a rollerblade camp counseller. this was a big hit with the kids, AND i was great for tooling around woodward. doest really hold up to heavy duty thrashing on ramps and jumps, but if youre a beginner or that isnt your style then the bike is fine. and you almost never see anyone else with one. cute bike, fine for entry level type bmx stuff, which is all i do on a bike that small. dont get this bad girl if you want to go flying!

Strengths:    A very solid frame in every aspect. It feels more nimble than the fatboy frames and definately turns heads when a guy flys by on a powder blue bike. :oP

Weaknesses:    Slight ping in the bottom bracket area.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike, guy or gal, as long as you can deal with the puns... :oP
