Strengths:    all round super strong bmx, the 2009 session from diamond back. tested properly at skatepark by myself, and then by my father, step father, step mum and dad's mate. this bike easily handled 10-12 stone of adults doing big air on it for two hours. it is a beast, you could chuck it off a cliff and just pick it up and ride it again. awesome. Purchased this bike as it was chunky frame and forks with wicked welding, my dad said it reminded him of a pk ripper with landing gear forks from the mid 80's.

Weaknesses:    Brake blocks are crap, only lasted 1 month. Had to buy some expensive ones that are long lasting quality. Also was well unimpressed with the satellite mag wheels that came on it, very uncoollooking and highly surprising that diamond back , my favourite bike company thought they could make a blinding bmx and then embarrass kids everywhere with those terrible wheels. Changed them for a set of DB alloys black spokes. Much better looking on the session. Have you seen the 2010 session it looks disgusting and the wheels even worse.

Bottom Line:   
The diamond back session 2009 is a top bmx bike. It will easily stand a lot of brutal riding either on the street, skatepark or just about anywhere. It is a smooth ride and is well worth the money. Choosen above the skindog and joker the session looks cool, and is a beast but comfortable. Don't forget to change the wheels straight away, not that theres anythng wrong with mags, but you want to look good as well.
Big tip for diamond back, put some skyway tuff's on the diamond back session and it will be a faultless piece of riding equipment.

Date Reviewed: November 2, 2002

Strengths:    Very strong frame, nice smooth ride, cheap (cost £200), looks great

Weaknesses:    Wheels aint that strong, but that maybe just 360 and 180's buckling them. Rear hub has just fallen apart for no reason (cones have snapped up).other than that nothing

Bottom Line:   
Very good bike for a begginer, some parts not as strong as the ones on more expensive bikes but wouldnt worry about that if you need a cheap starter bmx, u can always add parts to the frame because its very strong and nice looking and to ride.

2013 Specialized DEMO 8 Carbon OR 2012 Trek Session 9.9?

Hey guys. I wanted to get your opinion on these 2 bikes. I currently ride a 2011 DEMO 8. Owned it for close to 3 years and was never able to get it too feel awesome. The bike just feels dead. It's slack and low, but the suspension platform has no feel. It feels very point and shoot. I can't get any ... Read More »
