Strengths:    Value in this bikes frame alone. Same meat n' potatoes as the Crown (big head set), less a few component upgrades which you can make for yourself later at your own discression, and, it's a bit lighter. Great for the bigger rider.

Weaknesses:    Although not REALLY a weakness, I would have liked a sealed crank to have come stock, but ehh....wutever. The stock FA brake could be a bit tighter, but again, an easy $45.00 upgrade. My main(and only real)complaint was the missing side mounts on the fork. The center pivot should not have been allowed on a bike of this calibre. The cheap alternative to a pricey fork replacement though, get yourself some clamp-on brackets for that better break response.

Bottom Line:   
You just can't go wrong with this bike. It's a phat ride for the money and a great frame to add to if you so choose. No pansy pastel colours here either, just a simple variation of a black/red/white color scheme. It's a solid choice for the intermediate-to-advanced rider looking to upgrade. Bottom line, I've named mine already...

I know in its day they were awesome do anything super tough frames. I am considering selling it, but i ... Read More »

Recent Weyerbacher "Berwers Reserve" Release and Imperial Pumpkin Tasting

Not a huge "to-do", but Weyerbacher released their most recent Brewers Reserve NATO series brew this past Friday, and I was able to sneak away to attend. Unlike a lot of their seasonal/one-off releases, this was pretty lack-luster. Which is fine with me, the less crowds the better. The current ... Read More »

My first day as an Imperial Stormtrooper

Hi all....long time lurker, first time poster. I just got stationed here on Tatooine and am looking to ride with fellow Stormtroopers. I gotta say, my first ride out here was a blast on my speeder.
