Strengths:    Really hot, nice grips,and wheels last awhile.

Weaknesses:    weighs more than the average Haro. Chain snapped in half and the whole thing is all around easy to break.

Bottom Line:   
It is a great bike and it is the best looking bike compared to the rest on my team, but I regret not going with something lighter. If you are a new biker, go with this, it is cheap and it will help you get started. But if you are experienced this thing will break right as soon as you do something complicated.

Strengths:    The frame i probably the only strong thing besides the forks.

Weaknesses:    Handle bars,chain,rims,headset,upper cable, pedles, and sproket.

Bottom Line:   
This bke is perfect when you begin to ride. But when you start to progress you will go through parts pretty fast. I bent my handle bars ,rims,and crack my headset just doing a five stair. I would change the pedles quickly, they dont have a good grip. My upper cable lasted me about 3/4 a year. Forks are pretty strong but my forks grind more than my peg. My dropout in the back is starting to bend, the wheel is barely clearing the frame. Change the one pc. crank it will bend easily. The chain didn't even last while doing sprocket grinds. The sprocket turned all warped. The bike is pretty light at first untile you start to put stronger parts the pounds start to add up. This bike is really good quality for the price.

Strengths:    everything is really good, The frame is well constructed, and it is pretty light compared to some other bikes i have ridden.

Weaknesses:    nothin that i have seen so far is bad about this bike. It could be a little stronger but it is a very decent bike for the amount of money paid for it. I go off of about 4 foot jumps and it holds out pretty well. except for a couple of times i have had to replace parts.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is very good

Strengths:    *Good ride
*Some nice components
*Looks quite good compared to other bikes at this price.

Weaknesses:    *Some bad components
*You will end up replacing stuff quite quickly due to breakage.

Bottom Line:   
This bike rides really sweet on street and ramp, and can cope with a little dirt, but only once you have it set up well. Quite a few of the components are not good, handlebars (easy to bend), plastic pedals (easy to smash), grips (too soft, shred quick), wheels (just useless), brake cables (snap very easily), forks (strong, but the protrude below the peg, so you often end up grinding on the fork, which does not slide like a peg). I would recommend this bike, it is not light or heavy and will serve you very well if you are prepared to spend a little money on it.

Rim width vs rolling resistance.

Would I notice any increase in rolling resistance between a 29", 28mm rim width vs a 29",35mm wide rim both would have a 2.1" tire installed. I know there would be some rotational weight difference since the 35mm wheels are heavier, but what about tire contact surface area is the 35mm the same as th ... Read More »
