Submitted by crunkenstein a Weekend Warrior from Amherstburg

Date Reviewed: February 27, 2010

Strengths:    the rider

Weaknesses:    weak frame, weak forks, heavy rims, poopy components, k rads ran down quickly, chain skips every km, aluminum drop outs

Bottom Line:   
This bike is hairy ball sack. My frame & forks snapped within the first 3 months of me buying the bike. And that is from only riding parks and dj. No huge gaps or anything. I wouldn`t recommend any khs dj bikes. Don`t let the price fool you, because the bike is pretty much as crappy as a european hooker.

the bike is good but if you want to wait to get a new crank once you ride it you should get it but if you dont like to wait dont get it. i have gone through 1 crank and now i need a new one
