    Strengths:    Very strong, great for urban riding and dirt jumping.

    Weaknesses:    Rear disc mounts move on hard landings.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a great frame for many different uses. I use it for mainly urban/street riding, trails, and dirt jumping, and it does excellent on everything. I would definitely recommend purchasing this frame.

    Strengths:    stong,very stiff, good looks, great geometry,its black

    Weaknesses:    horizontal dropouts

    Bottom Line:   
    this bike doesnt actually belong to me any more, but before it was mine my friend beat on it jumping and he weighs 275 and then i owned it and beat it for another 9 mounths or so and now my other friend owns is and he weighs 190. he is an good rider and when he messes up the frame just takes it like a good bi***. if it hasn't broken by now then it wont. the only reason i wrote this review is because of the disses on it. i was amazed by them. and i dont know what the other guy was meashuring his seat tube with but mine is a 27.2

    Strengths:    Firm enough for jumping,good for cornering.

    Weaknesses:    Quite a weak body.Still alright for a begginer like me.

    Bottom Line:   
    People who like jumping and going to dirt tracks should buy it.People who does great drops must be careful of the strength of the frame.Its a great frame to me as cornering with it is wonderful.

    Strengths:    Long,sloping top tube and fast appearance.

    Weaknesses:    Cracked weld on the chain stay, poor tubing alignment, head tube not milled square, weird seat post size (27.0mm), poor sticker design.

    Bottom Line:   
    Bought this bike to use as a 26 inch bmx cruiser, but when I went to build it up, I found that the head tube was not milled properly. When I took it to the local shop, the employees noticed the cracked weld in the chain stay.

    Called the company and the owner said he would contact me about a new frame. Never did. Piece of junk is hanging in my basement.

    Buy one if you dare.

    Strengths:    Nice as geometry and angles real stiff back end corners real nice and can mount a disk on the rear

    Weaknesses:    the horizontal dropouts suck they keep moving, the trye clearance in the back and it can only take a small chainguide. nothing to great but still a little hassle

    Bottom Line:   
    a rad as little hardtail dual bike rocks on smooth stuff and corners real good has a low as centre of gravity and could carve up anything on the market!!! but a little niggle is the clearance for the trye in the back end and the dropouts would be primo as if had more clearance and had a mount for the rear axle!!! get one they rock on
