Strengths:    Not much it's pretty much the worst bike I've ever owned. It is lightweight though


Weaknesses:    Cranks are horrible 1 pieces, Stem is always loose, original grips are horrible, Rims are bad, not very good for riding dirt or bowls.

Bottom Line:   
Don't buy this or the 2003 one. Get a real BMX bike.

Submitted by Alex Barry a Weekend Warrior from Javea, Spain

Date Reviewed: February 29, 2004

Strengths:    I think this bike is good for most people. I've just turned 13 and i've been havin a good time riding it and i haven't broken it by doing stuff it couldn't
handle. It has a strong frame.


Weaknesses:    I have changed the tyres on it to maxxis cos the vert tyres were too smooth.

Bottom Line:   
i like this bike and i think it is really good. I hope to get a mountain bike soon though. i think hu ever buys this bike has spent their money well. I go riding with James cruddas hu reviewed the ignitor fx. This bike is almost as light as the ignitor fx but stronger.
