Strengths:    great for jumps,fun to ride can hop curbs easy handles urban jumps and obstacles well. Acceleration is quick and is really capable of going really fast.

Weaknesses:    not good for long rides, can be uncomfortable if ridden for long periods of time. not good if you want to take a long ride.

Bottom Line:   
its a good bike if you want to hit jumps or ride around with your friends but if you want to take a long bike ride not so good.

Strengths:    This bike Probably is the best bike I've ever ridden ....i've had for about eight months and not one major problem...the slight problem was since i dirt jump alot i needed some tightening up on the rear end... over all it's pretty light! you can definitely lighten it if you want without losing ANY STRENGTH!!!! VERY GOOD BIKE!!!!

Weaknesses:    THE GRIP END GIVE OUT AFTER ABOUT THREE MONTHS GIVE OR TAKE HOW YOU TREAT YOU PRIZE POSSESSION!!!! also when you ride it totally stock without tuning about after two to three months the back hub will get really tight...there for making really hard to pedal...DO NOT RIDE IT WHEN IT'S LIKE THAT , GETT IT LOOKED RIGHT AWAY!!!

Bottom Line:   
Strength!!!!! fairly light.... around twenty six to twenty seven lbs. GREAT VALUE FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH... ONLY THING BETTER IS THE FUZE 4 BUT FUZE 3 IS AMAZING!!!

Strengths:    pretty much everything. its light 27lbs without the pegs 29lbs with the pegs i took them off. its really strong and can really take a beating. good cranks (3 piece) and gears. brakes are good but need tightened after the first few weeks just like any other new bike.

Weaknesses:    grips can get slick so i recommend getting gloves. the pedals
do not have removable spikes so your feet can slip off sometimes. i dont use pegs so i took them off because my heel would hit them all the time when landing and im 5'6"
so it not like im to big.


Bottom Line:   
i love it. very kick @$$ bike. rides insanely smooth, its light, and it looks sweet mine is a 2008 model and believe me it looks sick. wear gloves, maybe get new grips. take the pegs off.

Strengths:    Tuff as nails, great drive train and gear ratio, not very heavy like alot of the jump bikes. The stock components hold up and are all top notch. The pegs are very nice though a little heavy and have a great integrated anti-twist mechanism. I really like the fact it came with a long seat post, the way to my nearest course is around 2 miles, so I like to sit up a little to get there.

Weaknesses:    none at all for fun! For comps I'd get a lighter set of pegs for both sides, (it comes with a half set), and I'd chop the seat and the bars a little. For fun the pegs will last a long time even for a serious grinder. Front brake was hard to find, if you don't nose stall you won't miss it. I also would have preferred an anti-twist brake assembly for bar spins, but that's me.

Bottom Line:   
Tough responsive and the balance of the bike is spot on. You can pay a bunch for a stree/vert bike but I beat em up, so I go with good and affordable, unless you're Mirra, Hoffman, or Nyquist, you are probably getting as good a bike as you'll ever need.
