Strengths:    This review is for a 2006 panic 1.0 good parts group , easy to get used to, super stiff and strong

Weaknesses:    juicy 5's did make some noise, cheap chain/cassette, seat sucks, first big hit steering got tight due to reducer in headset

Bottom Line:   
Ive had a lot of bikes from bmx to mtn(ht and fs),this bike is the best of both worlds. It jumps like bmx but can climb like mtn. Its got a very short wheelbase so it manuals/endo's great,also handles tight woods great.I love the bike for jumping and beating on it, but for longer xc rides its to cramped and at 32lbs kinda heavy. My first ride i hit a 5 foot drop and bottomed out the fork and steering got tight.Weighing near 180lbs i put 180 in the fork but that didnt cut it so ive got 200 in it now and it feels way better. I dont know why the steering got tight but if you loosen your stem and re adjust it its fine till you have a big hit again.I love the bike for short tech. rides with jumps but longer rides i take my xc bike.This bikes great for bmxers looking for more speed or xc riders looking for more action.

Strengths:    Well balanced, very nice frame geometry

Weaknesses:    I have the SR suntour fork. Its an okay fork, but Im saving up for a better one.

Bottom Line:   
Overall the bike has been pretty solid for me. I have been through 3 bottom brackets and one set of cranks since I bought this bike in 2005. Overall, the bike has held of very well. I'm a fairly heavy guy and have had some major spills, but this bike has taken the punishment well. I have never seen anyone else with this bike, which isn't suprising considering fuji is known for its road bikes, but I definitly recommend giving this bike a try if you looking for a HT urban freeride bike.

Strengths:    This bike is ridiculously nimble and very stiff. The geometry is very much like a SC chameleon and the graphics are dope. It manuals and jumps like a dream.

Weaknesses:    Even with a 20 inch top tube, my feet are still hitting the front tire when in certain positions. I'm going to have to move to a 24" wheelset and longer travel to alleviate this problem.

Bottom Line:   
This bike carries speed exceptionally well and is very responsive. I do a lot of park-type riding and trials (not trails, TRIALS) as well and so far I have no complaints about using this bike for either sort of riding.
