If you upgrade it..its not a piece of crap.This guy at the BMX park has a S&M that he spent $1000+ on it and still weighs at 29lbs..which i still laugh till this day, cuz i cheapskate through that expensive BS. Bottom line is that its Nice when you turn a peice a crap bike that you got at a dirty mexican man for $30 because you lie that haro is a unpopular brand and upgrade it into a Replica of a $1000 bike :] "Have a nice dayyy"-Forrest Gump

Strengths: i just want to say that the revo i have is the from the fist year that they came out with it. the forks are the strongest part of the bike i found they havent bent or even dented after a couple years of pretty hard abuse. the frame is also light and smaller then normal frames so its good for those starting out.
Weaknesses: the frame is to small for anyone who is above the 5.7 hieght its not even a 20 inch frame. the pedals lasted 3 days then broke and on my model the one piece cranks bent in a week. you might also want to consider buying a new wheels and stem.
good bike for begginers but not for anyone one the taller side or into doing crazy grinds or big ramps.

Strengths: i ride downhill usually but i snapped my bike so i bought this bmx frame off andy for a fiver coz he bought it off his mate who robbed it but The frame feels great very stiff and responsive takes a lot of abuse i cant comment on the groupset as mines full custom other than the seatpost and seatclamp
Weaknesses: weighs too much
good strong responsive accelerates well and holds its speed well can handle big drops easily and its cheap
Hello, as the title suggest, I have just mounted my dyno hub Exposure Revo Mk1 system to my bike. After installing the wiring, I spun the wheel to see if it lights up. Wasn't working. I checked the wiring where it connects to the hub plug a few times to see that it is making full contact. As far as ... Read More »
I am driving myself nutz on deciding the best way to go with my Giant Anthem X 29er.
Looking for acceleration (snap) and easier hill climbing ( I don't jump...on purpose anyway)
Would the Arch and Revolution spokes OR the Crest with Comps provide the best solution for me?
Or would one of th ... Read More »
I built up my XC race wheelset. Tires are Stans mounted. Just need dry enough weather to try them out. Non race wheelset is Mavic 819, DT comp and Hope XC front, Woodman rear hub. Haven't done final weight yet but expect 2-3lbs drop total.Read More »
My thinking here is that the flex point is a bit mute given the low pressures and compliance our tires give. They are cheaper and lighter than Supercomps. Am I goofy to consider this? I feel like someone has to have some experience here. FWIW, the rims will be a pair of schlick 47's or RD's.Read More »
I think I need to replace my freehub- i can pedal without going anywhere, the cass just spins. I don't have the tools to remove the freehub so can't take a look at the pawls right now.
