Strengths:    Had this bike as my other bike was stolen (giant trials team)...
and so far its a great bike, just needs a chain tensioner and the wheel moving forward as mine moved forward if i used force on the pedals but apart from that its a strong bike and quite light...also looks good =)

Weaknesses:    back wheel as noted above, use a jugnut as its cheaper and tensions and keeps wheel forward....

Bottom Line:   
worth the money and lots of fun as it can go on the skate ramps fine and get off road... its just a big bmx lots of fun..
