Strengths:    - Great Price
- super strong
- built in cro-mo derailer hanger
- good looks


Weaknesses:    - heavier then your uncle joe after thanksgiving dinner
- The rear of the frame is poorly designed, the tubes behind the seat tube have pitch fork type ends that give you serious bruses if you hit them with your legs.


Bottom Line:   
I would recomend this frame to anyone that abuses there bike regularly. ie: Trials, DJ, Urban and Park riders.
Its a heavy frame at 7.5lbs but, you won't notice it when compared to a aluminum park style frame.
With a built in derailer hanger and next to no flex. It will give you the trust in your equpment that you need for trials/urban riding.

5 terds all around!

Strengths:    strong and stable, nice geomatry for street and park, weight isent a big problem

Weaknesses:    not as "trialsie" as they said on the website

Bottom Line:   
this frame is amazing if you have enough money to buy all the really good componants to put this bike to its potential, my compnants now arent the best, yet the bike still feel good in the skate park. this frame is really good for the price, and the 7lbs weight dosent really matter.

Strengths:    Strength, geometry

Weaknesses:    Weigth

Bottom Line:   
Trials geometry in a cromo form. Frame feels heavy, but complete bike doesn't seem heavy at all. Great geometry (short chainstay). If you put soem big fork on the frame, it's ok. BB is a bit higher, but it doesn't bother at all. Bunyhop and manual are easier. Great funbike.
