Submitted by luke a Weekend Warrior from england

Date Reviewed: April 28, 2004

Strengths:    Really good for street or dirt jumps. Easy to manuel it also rides ramp really well, better than so bikes at twice the price. light, strong, smallish. handles great in the air.

Weaknesses:    Handlebars are pretty sh*t, they bent on on my 3rd day of riding. brakes arent too good but if u play around wid them they will work. 3 piece( but for the price its properly better u get 1 piece rather than some sh*tty 3 piece)

Bottom Line:   
the bike is really good for the price i dont think u wud get much better. it handles street/ramp very well.
looks great,
if u are going to buy this bike, then u shud buy some new handle bars wid it if u want.

Submitted by TeeJay from Franklin MA USA

Date Reviewed: October 11, 2002

Strengths:    Strong frame, takes a beating, good rims, hubs, and fork, tires still aren't bald yet

Weaknesses:    I've had it a year and I have beaten it. First day, my bars stripped, slowly my bars bent downward. Cranks bent (im 15, 115lbs, no big guy) no grip on pedals, wore don the pins, seat ripped in the front, black rims were a no, chrome would be better, headset cracked within maybe 10 - 20 cases,

Bottom Line:   
ITs a great bike for youngens that need a strong mother but dont want to spend money. In the future you will need to upgrade to better parts, ie: cranks, pedals, stem.... But other than thats its a sweet bike that is worth the dollar.
