    Great bike for Sreet,Jump,Trials,Light DH,but it depends on what shooter frame you buy,i have had about 12 shooter's yes 12 shooter's and 8 of them were different,i had a carbon fibre shooter once too which i cloked 83mph,it was a crazy shooter could handle anything,

    Strengths:    great starter frame, wicked colours, can take some wicked jumps, lightweight n good lookin. Good handling n good for wheeling n jumping as it is pretty light. Great for jumps and especially gd for slalom n trials.

    Weaknesses:    Paint does tend to come off slightly but tht does depend on weva u are thrasin it every day n night. the cable run along the top of frame rather thn underneath.

    Bottom Line:   
    great frame, defently a must have if ur just startin out. Good for the dosh. Awsome for trials, slalom etc. I LOVE THIS FRAME!!!! and so shud u...!

    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).

    Bottom Line:   
    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

    Bottom Line:   
    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.

    Bottom Line:   
    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:    Small, whippy, has a short rear triangle which makes it better at doing manuals and wheelies (and makes it stiffer)

    Weaknesses:    the paint is easily chipped in fact so bad I had it resprayed over in white because of this and the grafics are not the nicest or the colours for that matter.

    Bottom Line:   
    easy on your wallet (can be found over here for 120 pounds)
    good workmanship on the frame, well designed , but the paint work is appaling.

    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.

    Bottom Line:   
    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.
