Submitted by mn king of dirt a Weekend Warrior from mn

Date Reviewed: October 3, 2009

Strengths:    full cromoly wishbone frame w/ reinforced top and bottom tubes and 8mm dropouts, euro bottom bracket w/ sealed tubular 3 piece crank, sealed headset and hubs w/ 14mm front and rear axles

Weaknesses:    I tweaked my back rim pretty bad and only had the bike for 3 months but im a hardcore dirt jumper

Bottom Line:   
This is one of the best bikes you can get the only weakness is the rims and you can get a descent back rim for 55 bucks. this bike can take whatever you can throw at it and it will ask for more. i wouldnt waste 700 bucks on a custom bike when you can get this one for 500

Strengths:    Frame is strong as a tank though not as quite as heavy, it's not as pretty as the 99-00 model that had a sweet gusset on the head tube. Nice strong dropouts 8mm instead of the usual 6mm PHAT!!!

Weaknesses:    No gusset makes the frame look a little skinny, i don't like GYRO's on my dirt bikes so that had to come off, The bars were well big but once my S&M slams were on it was looking and riding sweet!

Bottom Line:   
The basic set up is above average, great if you're just getting into dirt/trials even street, The frame is superb it can take anything i throw at it and i've snapped a dk frame before so it's be tough, if you are more experienced you may want to customise the set up a bit.
Free agent have outdone themselves once more (still not sure why they got rid of the head tube gusset though?)

Strengths:    great frame, so far has took anything i can throw at it, wheels are great dubble walls havnt bent yet, overall great bike, i've put it though 5ft jumps nd its fine.

Weaknesses:    its got bad pedals, the crank is forged,needs to get rid of the gryo, freewheel aint that great, chainwheel could be thicker.

Bottom Line:   
its a great bike, it can handle anything you can dish out, the best bike I ever had. I have a feeling I wont be needing a new bike anytime soon. anyone who needs a new bike that can handle dirt nd street should get this.

Hellcat / Minnar and mallet interference

After blowing through a pair of pearl Izumi xalp elites in roughly six months, I decided the minnars were the ticket for durability. I pretty much always run the metal beater blockers, now know as the shoe blockers on the CB site. That generally takes care of the shim/shoe tread issues. Not in this ... Read More »

Does any have 510 Hellcat/Minaar and NOT use SPD

Looking into getting some 510s, really like the way the Hellcat and Minaar look, and also that they have the velcro strap at the top. I know they are SPD shoes but would it be all that wrong to run them with flats? They have a piece that plugs the SPD whole, it screws it like they could be meant to ... Read More »

5.10 Impact vs Hellcat

I'm just getting into biking and am looking to pick up a bike specific shoe. My bike has platform pedals that I'm probably going to be using for a while, although I would like to go clipless in the future. In searching the forum I've seen that Impacts come highly recommended, I was going to pick som ... Read More »

Five Ten Hellcat SPD shoe with flats?

I'm going to give flats a try after years of clipless. I know Five Ten Impacts are really popular with flats, but I tried on a pair, and they felt overly puffy to me. Is anyone running the [URL=""]Hellcat SPD[/URL] with flats?Read More »
