Strengths: it is pretty strong, i have crashed it many times and it has held up pretty well.
Weaknesses: its brake lever is really weak, one crash and it snapped off it also is a little heavy
it is a very good bike for begginners. it is a goos, strong bike. it can take a good amount of abuse. 250 is a good deal for this bike. works well for dirt jumping and some street abuse. not too good for racing though. it will race but not too well.

Strengths: strong frame, nice handlebars, good tires and rims..in a year of rough riding and dirt jumping that came with a bunch of cases and bails i barely bent the wall of the rear rim.
Weaknesses: definately the crank..mines completely bent up..thats why im looking for a new bike.and bad brakes.
in all its a pretty good and durable bike..its a pretty long lasting bike, but i would say you will need a new crank and some new brakes by 6 months if you ride pretty hard.i think its worth the cost though.
Similar Products Used: a razor bike from k-mart was better then this bike, i rode that for a year and it dident creak anywhere

Strengths: Light, strong, good geometry, great frame, cool graphics and just a great overall beginner or intermediate bike. This is my first bike but I'm gonna upgrade it to make it like a pro bike because the frame rocks.
Weaknesses: Crummy pedals, 1 piece cranks(which I bent quickly,) and you can't put pegs on the back axle so you'll have to go out there and get a new one if you want to grind.
A great beginner bike but it will also stand anything a pro can give(with 3 piece cranks.) I suggest that anyone who wants a great bike to get into BMX the DK Eight Pack is the best bike out there.
Bike Setup: The only things I've changed about it so far is the cranks, grips, pedals, axles. Now I have Profile chromo cranks, Primo V-grips, S&M pro platform pedals, and I bought a longer axle.

Strengths: Great frame, cheap, strong yet light
Weaknesses: cheap plastic pedals, cheap crank, the dropouts on back are too short to use pegs, longest handlebars i've ever seen
If you are just getting into bmx this is the bike to get. It has a lot of bang for the buck. The frame is great. you can do anything with it but it dirt jumps best. If you want to grind you need to get a new axle for the rear. The crank is a piece of crap so i replaced it with a primo powerbite and that is working great. Also has plastic wellgo pedals that are crap. I replaced them with S&M Pro Platforms and when i got a new crank I got Primo Super Tenderizors which are also working out very nicely.
