    Strengths:    Solid, huge and rigid. It makes for a very stable and diverse traveller.

    Weaknesses:    VERY tall bottom bracket w/26" wheels. Cable guides are on top of the "TopTube"

    Bottom Line:   
    I am very happy to have this as a part of my collection.
    One of only a few in Canada and probably the ONLY ONE in Ontario.

    Strengths:    Badass gusseting, forged chainstay yolk, boxed chainstays, ADS with IS tabs on dropout jaws, solid headtube, great geometry, 24 or 26, not terribly heavy, ISCG, never seen another one, levels out when airborne.

    Weaknesses:    Parts are hard to get; I wanted the 24in specific ADS with 14mm dropouts, but would have had to order through UK, deal with customs, inflated price, etc etc.

    Odd seatpost size

    Headtube angle is really too steep for downhill bombing, you feel like you're gonna go over the bars

    XL's are always unavaliable


    Bottom Line:   
    Badass bike, super solid, probably the best BSX value around. You'll never see another guy on an Identiti other than the P66. The ADS is just sick; I love how I can slam my chainstay on 24's and run SS no problemo, and how the IS brake caliper tabs are one with the dropout jaw, so there's no misalignment of the caliper/rotor. Love how I can add gears if I want and 26's down the line. Cool graphics, truly a unique bike, a real head turner.

    If you're looking at the Sinister DNA, the 24 Bicycles Le Toy 4, or Addict cycles, but don't have $800 lying around, get the Dr. J

    Strengths:    Great geometry for what it is designed for....outstanding on the 4X track, DS track, Dirt jumps, street etc...Pretty light and strong. Sliding vertical dropouts so you can run SS or geared and 24s or 26s. good price

    Weaknesses:    paint looks good but chips too easily, dropouts needed to be filed down so my rear axle would fit in.

    Bottom Line:   
    the bike does exactly what it is made to do, which is rip the 4X/DS tracks and shred the jump lines. i love the geometry except that i got the smaller of the two sizes which is too small for my liking at times. all and all i really like the bike, and it is a reasonable price. i love the sliding vertical dropouts just because of the versitility.

    Strengths:    radical design, nice dropout idea, horny paintjob

    Weaknesses:    sometimes catch ya nads on the cable guides. head angle too steep for downhill.

    Bottom Line:   
    If yam a pu$$y jack off right now cuz this bike dow like to go slow or small! I ride it hard as nails on dirt, street and it fully rocks at skate parks, like fully rocks ya know. The weight and geo make you feel like Stevie H. so you can learn new tricks without putting ya back out. Bottom line is, buy one and ride it like a snoopy's girl on a thursday night. You know what I'm talkin bout, **gga!

    Strengths:    Looks are killer, tough as nails, indestructable, nice paint job, can take 6ft drops easy

    Weaknesses:    the paint scratches easy, but I am pretty tough on my bikes

    Bottom Line:   
    This is one of the best bike frames that I have ever owned and seen. I turns heads on the trail. It is super tough and can handle anything thrown at it. It is much cheaper that 24 bicycles, evil, or other dual salom/jump bikes. It doubles at a xc bike.

    Date Reviewed: May 11, 2002

    Strengths:    Looks good and is very strong, difficult to scratch dent or bend1

    Weaknesses:    Not much rear tyre clearance, no more than 2.1

    Bottom Line:   
    Good Bike but not so cheap at £200.00+ for the frame when the 99-2000 model is exactly the same as the DDG shotter which is around £150.00. They claim the Dr jekyll is stronger but I cant see how when my friend has a Shooter and they are identical apart from the paint job. Crap rear tyre clearance but a strong frame. If your gunna get 1 make sure it is a later model than 2000 or it is a waste of money. 14" frame is also a bit small. All in all it is a great jump, Dual or trials Bike that looks good. (OLDER Dr Jekyll logo is gay trust me) make sure u get the finger print.
