Strengths:    Basically Everything

Weaknesses:    The only downfalls would be the difficulty of attaching pegs to the front axle. You need to buy a 14mm rear axle in order to attach pegs which makes things a little more expensive.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great, a little heavier for smaller riders (as I found out, 5'3" and 52kg) But otherwise its a great bike all around. As most people have said, chuck on some different tires for whatever you wanna do and ur set.

Strengths:    Tough frame. Good style of brakes. Very light weight. Easy to move around. Very stable.

Weaknesses:    I need stronger rims. Its kinda small going from a Dyno to a Diamondback. No gyro. The front style of brakes.

Bottom Line:   
For the price I paid, it is like a steal. And no it aint a stolen. For 30 dollars i couldnt have gone wrong. The paint is cipped in in very litte spots. The rims are signitly bent. Cant even tell. The seat is a little ripped on the back of it. The only reason I got it for that price is cause the kid i bought it from was 6' 4' and you know what that would look like on that bike. Im really short so it makes up for it anyway.

Strengths:    good brakes and quite light in weight

Weaknesses:    back tyre (buckled 1st day) seat- hard

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a very good bike for begginers, it is very steady and does not woble when you go fast to do a jump.
I would recomend this bike to any one from begginers to pros.
The only people that shouldn't buy it is little kids like 8 years of age because as i said it is quite heavy and i recomend it to teenagers like 13 and so on.

Strengths:    sturdy, lightweight frame, smooth ride, good overall perfomance for racing and jumping.

Weaknesses:    none in my mind (the front brake is fine if you know how to tune it properly)

Bottom Line:   
i've been a freestyle BMXer since i bought this bike and its done nothing but serve my needs. you couldnt find a better, more solid bike for the same price as these are worth. It could very well be the bike that i win tons of money racing and competing on.

Strengths:    Light, sturdy frame. Really Beefy. Can handle any dirt or rocks you throw at it yet quiet and smooth on the road.

Weaknesses:    front breaks suck need new calipers and pads other then that nothing.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is an awesome bike!!!!!!!!! not much left is stock but many of the components were decent for the money. The frame is maddd light and stiff. only real thing you need to upgrade is the front brakes. other then that the bike is fantastic. the frame can support 2.35s on the front and 2.15s on the back. If you want a dirt set up buy this bike and put on dirt tires, if you want a freestyle bike put on street tires and if you want a jumping/racing bike put on some high pressure tires the frame can do it all!!!! If you can stiull find one of these you wount have to pay more then 100 bucks to get it and it is fantastic. Happy riding and send any questions about the bike to me ill be glad to help!!!!!

Date Reviewed: February 16, 2002

Strengths:    i think that the diamond back ignitor bmx is an awsome bike it has a strong fram and is awsome for the big jumps, it also has a v-brake at the back which is good for back manuals.

Weaknesses:    the seat is hard as hell and the front brake is not as good as the back, also i is a little on the heavy side

Bottom Line:   
for its price it is an awsome bike. if you are just starting out like i am this is a great way to do it.
