Submitted by Casey Chadwick a Weekend Warrior from Orem, Utah, USA

Date Reviewed: February 9, 2006

Strengths:    This is the lightest bike I ever had. I haven't made it go as fast as it could go, but so far I beat out all the other other BMX racers in town. Strongest frames I ever had. Great brakes.

Weaknesses:    It's not the toughest bike I ever got, but almost. Rims don't take the landings as good as I would like. Had to replace them once. Also had to replace the bottom bracket once (expensive!) after repeated landings off the half-pipe.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a definite must have, if you're a serious BMX stunt racer or bike park chump. The latest bikes don't stand a chance against this one. If you don't own a Nitrus, you bow to the other guy that does!

Strengths:    Its extremely lite, and it has a nice strong frame, really strudy and tough.

Weaknesses:    It has crappy rims and unsealed cranks but they're 3 piece so?

Bottom Line:   
Its a good race bike to buy if you need something to turn heads with and for the weak parts all you needs it a few minor adjustments and you got your self a pro quality race bike.

I would buy this bike all over it is a very fast bike I just can't make it go that fast but if I was good it would fly, it is very very lite,the liter than most $1000 race bikes. If I were you I would give this bike a try you will not be sad. it can race with $1000 bikes. The botton line is try it. did i say it is very lite. Thx for reading my review.
