Strengths:    Love it! heavy rear end makes grinds easy - hardly any damage! few dents here and there! Fitted a profile dj crankset for weight, took off gyro, and front brake. 36 cnc hoffman chainring, and i was away!!!

Weaknesses:    Heavy rear end means bunny hopping is rather hard. brakes werent set-up good, until i got to it! tyres wear out very easily, especially the rear! - too much skidding!

Bottom Line:   
Love it!!!!

Strengths:    It's just plain sweet. It puts the Cha in Cha-Ching.

Weaknesses:    Shut up fool
I'll bust a cap


Bottom Line:   
I'll bust a cap fool! This bike is wicked sweet....buy it! Or I might just have to bust a fricken' cap. So take that. If you want a light-weight bike though, this bike is pretty heavy. It's still wicked sweet though. Buy it and you'll see. Or don't and I'll just have to bust a fricken' cap. Oh yeah.

Submitted by cal williams a Weekend Warrior from england (sheffield)

Date Reviewed: August 21, 2002

Strengths:    good frame and forks ,my wheels are not yet buckled from doing high jumps ,and its got some nice hoffman parts like stem ,seat ,seatpost and pegs which are utra strong.

Weaknesses:    Its got a tacky 1 peace crank but it can easily be replaced wiht a 3pc. The bars might aswell be made of cotton and the headset has caused me so much trouble and iv had to buy 3 new ones

Bottom Line:   
the bike is good for about 3 mounths but then it starts to get broken parts, so if you replace them with good parts you can turn it into a high quality bmx
