Date Reviewed: April 7, 2007

Strengths:    Well something must be good as my cousin nearly got his mugged off him

Weaknesses:    It has the stickers from a freebee in a magazine as standard, looks very dated, my cousins it is but it constantly broke in a few months and looks a wreck since February 2007, too heavy

Bottom Line:   
Yes the bottom line it is. Poor quality in all aspects, overpriced and overrated. I'm sorry but Raleigh must be mad to distribute this pile of crap and they must improve drastically to survive

Date Reviewed: February 2, 2007

Strengths:    Great Bike. I jump with it and do skate parks too. Frame is strong. Forks are amazing. Good for trail or park

Weaknesses:    Back tire is made for street not for dirt. The back tire is skinny too. I would get a Primo dirt Monster tire to help your traction in dirt. Grips are hard. Also the cranks can come loose if you fall hard. EXA:360 turndown with a one handed seat grab X up (laughs)that hurt. also a lil heavy

Bottom Line:   
Anything is posible. Great deal. 11 out of 10. Any beginner should buy this bike, but if you buy it make sure you use it every day so you little ones can get STRONG. If your sponserd you should buy it too just buy new bars new grips new cranks. If your new to BMX read some "Ride BMX" or "BMX Plus" magazines

Hope this helps you.

Date Reviewed: May 15, 2006

Strengths:    smooth ride, looks awesome. great tires and a healthy weight makes it really fast. brakes also are damn good almost as good as disk brakes, in some ways better.

Weaknesses:    grip isn't too good, but can be easily changed, weight takes its toll sometimes going up hill but if you rag it hard enough its ok and like all bmxs- long jouneys makes your back ache.

Bottom Line:   
i love this bike, i have had so much fun on it, i recommend it to anyone who would enjoy racing through woodland dirt trails etc and it is also very good on the streets. its feels very secure too and i havnt riden anything else like it.
