Strengths:    For sure a solid bike. Perfect for the heavy hitter with more balls then brains. Although the bike is heavy, it has a sweet point of mid balance, perfect for learning big grinds, and pulling of the dreaded flair. This bike has brought me nothing but success..

Weaknesses:    A heavy, bulky bike. Breaks are nothing to write home about but still work decent with a little love. This is a bike for a new thrill seeker newb or pro.

Bottom Line:   
Ive had over 32 bikes in the past 6 years, Ive been riding park/street since I was 14, and this is the only bike that can handle my 185 pounds of 15 feet to flat without a doubt in my mind. I have broke many bones on other bikes due to poor construction. I received this bike in '01 from diamondback to ride for them. I have loved and kept this bike to this day, an absolute must for any bmx enthusiast... Three thumbs up!!!!

Submitted by KingOfSpades007 a Weekend Warrior from Plymouth

Date Reviewed: September 17, 2009

Strengths:    Nice bike overall, durable, stock rims fiarly light*, looks nice (brown '07 model), fairly nimble considering.

Weaknesses:    A tad on the heavy side, managed to bend factory handlebars, chainwheel way too heavy, *stock rims none too sturdy.

Bottom Line:   
I find it a bike that suits me. It's (as I said) nimble when you need it to be, a tad heavy, (when stock).I have a 33/12 gear ratio (same as 44/16?), so it gets off the line quite well. Upgrading the rims and lubing the brake lines helps the breaking problem. If you're a beginner, its a nice but, if you've got more experience, well, I'm sure you're not reading this right now.
