Strengths:    Frame,Bars,Rear Axel,Tires, Grips

Weaknesses:    Rims, Bearings, front axel, CRANKS!

Bottom Line:   
Ok. Its a decient bike. It worked great for a while. Its great for a beginner or someone who just want to ride. It Held up great for a while but now it is getting a little edgy. Rims are bent.. No its not because i am a bad rider. Its because they are a Piece of $#!t. Cranks are dissapointing. and i am counting the days until they finally just snap.
It has a really smooth ride and i love the gearing.

It is terribe for what it is named after... Grinding!
My axels are bent up on one side from grinding.

This bike is fun on dirt because it makes a softer landing and it can take it. but if you plan to take this 2 the skatepark all day, Make some improvements to the setup or bring tools because it will screw up sometime.

ALL I CAN SAY IS ITS AN OK BIKE. BUT I WISH I HAD SPENT MY MONEY ON SOMETHING THAT WORKS IN THE FIRST PLACE. INSTEAD OF SOMETHING I HAVE 2 CUSTOMIZE 2 MAKE IT WORK

Strengths:    frame, fork, bars, rims, hubs, pegs, brakes.

Weaknesses:    spokes, nipples, BB, sprocket, axles, that one-piece crank that likes to flex on hard landings.

Bottom Line:   
good bike for beginners and intermediate bikers but they should had made the bike a little lighter and longer, maybe 20.5 inches instead of 19.5 inches. its still good tho.

Weaknesses:    Get's some dents when rocks throw and it from height
