Strengths:    It has one of the fastest best gearing ratios I have ever rode.It has great take off from when you take that first hard pedal.Precision tight smooth turning.Great weight extremely light.Soars threw the air perfectly.I highly recommend it.If you take good care of it then it will last a long time.

Weaknesses:    It really doesn't have that many weaknesses.But the fact that the bearings in the wheels get worn out every now and then all you have to do is grease them.Take very good care of it.

Bottom Line:   
Is that it is a great racing bike and has awesome race factors.

Strengths:    Strong 7005 Aluminum Alloy Frame, solid trail tires (good for dirt tracks). Stock is still rock solid, yet still light.

Weaknesses:    Stock drive system is a bit touchy, my sprocket rounded off at the spindle and I skinned my knees several times, so I replaced it with an FBM Race 44t Sprocket, PoVerty 180mm Chrome Euro crankset, with a 3/4 spindle. SRAM Alloy 8 speed chain. And my favorite part, custom gold spike schraeder (spelling?) valve caps.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a solid racebike, it got me 2nd place in my class for Maryland State Champion, though I recommend highly replacing the drive system soon after you get the bike. It will only run you about $200, I was like $198ish. I don't plan on getting rid of this bike anytime soon. A good buy for $350. It's light and quick and I recomment a 44:15 gear ratio, if you race, you know what I mean when I say it shoots you out of the gate.

Strengths:    Nice bike, everything on it is good as it comes from the dealer.

Weaknesses:    After 1 month: - pedals, chain, tires, fork, crank system, ...

Bottom Line:   
At first, I was stocked when my new bike arrived. But what I noticed that the bars are really, really large. I cut them 3/4 on each side the first day. After 1 week my crank stystem broke. The front tirer is way to large. Bad grips, i placed lizard grips on it. Chain broke 2 times.

The point is, 375 $ isn't much money for a bmx bike, and it is race ready when you buy it. But i you race a lot like me, don't buy this bike, spent a bit more money and buy something GOOD! It isn't a bad bike, i recommend it for beginners but for better riders, get something better.
