Strengths: Great handling frame, nice short rear end means it is easy to manual, hop and wheelie and allows for quick acceleration. I've had mine for over 2 years now and I've had no problems after riding jumps and drops.
Weaknesses: Paint chips a little easily, and the colour scheme may not be to some people's taste. The top tube is quite steep so the frame is probably more orientated toward trials (but it is still spot-on for dirt and slalom).
This is a great value frame for somebody who is starting out in jumping/trials/BSX. Handles great, manuals real nice. Slightly orientated towards trials, but still a great all-rounder.

Strengths: its a great bike for the money, it is strengthened in all the right places i think that the small rear triangle makes it good and ewasyfor manualling and wheelying.
Weaknesses: the paint is a weakness- it looks quite good in certain colours but does occasionally chip off quite easily once you've had a fall etc. and i've had to buy a touch-up kit and it looks as good as new
fantastic bike- dont fall paintwork might chip but doesn't cost alot for a touch- up kit, make sure you have the right set-up for the type of riding you do and im sure you will make the most of your bike. buy it if your the trials rider but not if your a downhiller etc.

Strengths: Some very nice and well thought out details for the price, good geometry and plenty of gussets in the right places and a replaceable dropout. The short rear triangle makes it really easy to wheelie, predictable in the air and gives it good, snappy handling while adding stiffness to the frame. It's solid, not too heavy, well made and versitile.
Weaknesses: The graphics look cheap and nasty, and the paint lacks toughness. The clips supplied on the brake hose guides are best replaced with zip ties.
It's a good honest jump/street/fun bike. With the right spec it could easily be suited to 4X/dual racing. There are some issues with the paint quality but that could be rectified with a respray or simply sticking patches where the cables rub. The frame's quite small so is best suited to a short/medium travel fork about 3-4inch works best with the geometry. It may be a bit short for taller riders but that's what makes the bike so chuckable. It's solid, versitile and excellent value for money. If you do a lot of varied riding, but need to save your money for your downhill rig, then the DDG Shooter will do you proud.

Strengths: Cable stops are very good, altough the plastic clamps tend to break if they get a slight hit. Frame feels very firm and is easy to steer and jump.
Weaknesses: Paint! They really should focus on quality of the paint work. Not that would look bad, not at all, but the paint tends to chip off extremely easy. The top tube is also quite short, so riders +6ft should test-ride the rig before buying it.
Good slalom/dirt/fun bike, altough it's a bit too short for me. Frame work (exept the paint) is exellent comparing to it's price.
Hey folks just wanted to let everyone know that if they haven't gotten their pinal fix time is running short and sixshooter is ripping as good as ever. Still 2-4 trees to climb over depending if you start from the peak or ferndel lot. Check dam is still a ripping hoot. This past weekend 3 of us gave ... Read More »
Quick question. A few of us rode Six Shooter in Globe this weekend, and I'm wondering a few things.
1. When do all those downed logs get removed? is it too early in the season?
2. I think we missed a turn off towards the end as we ended up by a windmill and an uphill dirt road which ... Read More »
