Submitted by Austin guckenberg a Weekend Warrior from Forks, wa

Date Reviewed: April 5, 2011

Strengths:    Handle bars , grips , fork , alienation rims, everything really.

Weaknesses:    Crank, kenda tires

Bottom Line:   
This ble was really good and I still have it today and proboly will not ever get rid of it because it didn't have any major problems but the kenda tires that came with it wore out real fast to the threads and the crank broke to pieces. And the crank squeaks now but only after a few hours of hard core riding.

Strengths:    rims , stem , bars, though a lil short . all cromo good stcok tires


Weaknesses:    pretty heavy , but if u get a new fork , i stripped mine , is should b pretty light , get rid of stock pedels , no grip bearings in the cranks were UNSEALED so dirt gets in and the grease dries up so get SEALED BEARINGS

Bottom Line:   
good BOMB PROOF bike , heavy but vey capable although i would have not paid 350 4 a new 1 , 100 bucks was a steal ,
if you see 1 in a yard sale , snatch it

Strengths:    This is the 2007 bump. You will not find a better complete bike for the price. Decent weight. VERY STRONG. I've let go of mine from 10 feet up on more than one occasion. Great adult bike for dirt and the park.

Weaknesses:    Other reviews are spot on. I too broke the crank where it meets the sprocket. Front fork is a bit heavy. I also locked up the back freewheel but Performance replaced it at no cost! The freewheel was my fault though... gnarly wreck.

Bottom Line:   
Most of the names I grew up with in BMX now put out Walmart crap. This is good for independent companies, but not good for the consumer cost. I commend GT for constantly adapting their models based on reviews. Your kid is safe jumping this bike in your back yard, because all 200 lbs. of me has been safe on this bike for 2 years of riding it harder than any other I've had before. The way GT has been going, I doubt new models will even share the same weaknesses I listed. Thank you GT and Performance Bicycle.

Submitted by Tim a Racer from Lakehurst

Date Reviewed: March 28, 2005

Strengths:    It is a good jumping bike, and great for the park,the frame and forks are very strong, and the bike itself can take a pretty good beating.

Weaknesses:    Not for racing, although GT makes good race bikes this is not one of them it is very very much a street and park bike.

Bottom Line:   
Ride this bike if you want to ride alot of street and park, but all in all it is a great bike for the price that it is listed at. if you are a beginner it is a great bike to start on and learn on.
