Date Reviewed: October 16, 2007

Strengths:    lightweight, handles well, price, strength

Weaknesses:    short top tube

Bottom Line:   
bought the frame for 30 quid off ebay and built the bike around it and what a surprise,
with the 130mm forks on it it leaps forward and begs to be thrashed,
very light and a joy to throw around on the trail, inspiring confidence and idiotic behaviour,
because of its small size it is easy to move around on the bike and get comfortable no matter what you're doing,
i'm 5'6^ and when really pushing up hills my knees only just miss the shifters but longer stem would sort this out.
had a couple of big hits and nothing has broken or fallen of as yet so i'm happy,

you can buy the frame for 80 quid brand new off ebay and build a quality jump/hardcore xc bike for under 500 quid in fact i would have if the wheels hadn't cost 200 quid!!!
in fact the only thing i'd swap it for is an orange msisle!

Date Reviewed: March 22, 2004

Strengths:    I think that the products strenghths are that the frame is really strong and i have the combat isshue which i think looks really nice and for the price i would recomend it 2 any new jump or street riders starting up or even been riding for a long time and want a new frame but with a low budgett for the money i think this is the best frame

Weaknesses:    the weekness has to be the front end where the forks go in i had a crash and that got a bit mashed on mine but nothing 2 bad because it still works and it is all good

Bottom Line:   
The bottom line is that this is a great frame and i recomend it 2 anyone who needs a cheap stong frame to thrash around at there local street or dirt jump spot or even 2 race dual or 4x for any of those things i think it is a great frame and think that if u have a small budett then i highly recomend this frame.

Submitted by Ben Hibberd a Weekend Warrior from Moorside

Date Reviewed: January 1, 2003

Strengths:    Nice and strong, fun too jump with, not too heavy when compared too its rivals. Seriously well priced considering what you get for your money, and comes in loads of cool colour schemes.

Weaknesses:    Needs bigger tyre clearence!, paint chips, and rubs off from the cables after not a very long time,top tube quite short for taller riders, and pretty much all stuff that the aforementioned have said.

Bottom Line:   
Rippin value for a starter jump bike, but not good enough for an expert. Aimed at begginner/intermediate rider.

Strengths:    very light for jump frame...
quite cheap


Weaknesses:    too weak to be a long lasting frame, my headtube is on the way out allready...
the geometry is neither trials nor jump, it is trying to be both and fails at each really....its best as a trials setup though


Bottom Line:   
dont buy the frame...if you want a full setup at a cheap price get it but dont expect it to last more than a year....

Submitted by James a Weekend Warrior from Wimborne, Dorset, England

Date Reviewed: July 7, 2002

Strengths:    excellent price, tuff as hell, short rear end, light, stiff, rules in the air.

Weaknesses:    steerer tube too slack for fork over 100mm, top tube too short for rider 6ft+ nothing major for a short dirt jumper like me, only problem is that because of far east welding stuff like tyre clearance varies with every frame but my mate can fit a 2.25 kujo in so its not all bad

Bottom Line:   
Quality dirt frame, the only way your ever gonna break it is if your really really crap trying really really big stuff. The value more than makes up for any short comings

Date Reviewed: January 7, 2002

Strengths:    Strong and stiff, and cheap to boot, comes in loads of different colours, discmounts, good size for trials and jumping. Rides like a big BMX when i use single speed

Weaknesses:    paint chips easy, but then agaain what doesn't, not much else wrong.

Bottom Line:   
Got this bike just for dirt jumpimg and it has improved my riding to no end the doubles are getting bigger and bigger. the small size suits the jumps very well and i'm 6 foot. Very strong and stiff and with the 24seven cranks the back end has a lot of feel to it, might well change something up front as the set up dont quite feel right.
Bottom line is dont pay top dolla for a more expensive frame that ant gonna do much that this dont, it's good, try it!
