Strengths:    Pretty strong, solid frame. Strong triple wall wheels.

Weaknesses:    Too heavy. Definitely Not recommended for a beginner rider. It is meant for ramp usage, hense the burly frame.

Bottom Line:   
Not recommended for someone who cares about weight.

Strengths:    Super solid, great components.

Weaknesses:    Brake levers, hubs, rims, weight

Bottom Line:   
If you ride heavy and hard, and abuse your bike this is for you. If your a tiny trail rider dont buy this bike. Many people complain that its too heavy. I am 6 feet and weigh 190 pounds and i can bunny hop mine about 3 feet maybe a little more. This is more of a big person bike. Also if you go think its heavy now and decide later to put on a 2 pound chain like i did and super heavy duty parts then you will really be screwed. Otherwise this is a super solid bike that seems like it will never break. I would recomend this for a street or a vert rider that doesnt really care about weight.

Similar Products Used:   I didnt like the wheelset that came on the bike so i upgraded to th Eastern Big Wheels which you can see at www.Easternbikes.com

Bike Setup:   I had the Commando series Hercules. I changed the wheel set to the big wheels which are a different kind of alex triples and some really sweet hubs that spin like butter and are light. They are super nice and i wouldnt ride the bike if I dint have that wheelset. I also put on a profile blackjack sprocket and two dirt harry brake levers. (the left one is upside down)
