Strengths:    nice handling and sturdy build, ok ride.

Weaknesses:    sadly frame isn't all cromo, neither is the crank, like a run the mill bmx bike.

Bottom Line:   
bottom line bike is to heavy for trick standards period. i'd hate to say it but it's a truck. Beginners don't need a heavier bike...lol. Go for lighter product. 100% cromo. i had an old Redline, superlite that was so easy to lift, superhigh bunny hops.

Strengths:    Very Light. Brakes work good. Strong frame, very flickable. Comes with great Kenda tires. Reasonable price.

Weaknesses:    Brakes work good at first, but once you bend the rim just a tad, they fade hardcore. Cranks are terrible. I've had mine for a little over a year, and it split where the built-in pinhead is. Wish the wheels were double-wall, not stock singles.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike, but needs better aftermarket components.

Strengths:    Really nice brakes, they stop the bike immediately. Rather light, and a very strong frame and forks.

Weaknesses:    I'd always like to see a lighter bike.

Bottom Line:   
This is a beast of a bike. It feels like your in total control when your jumping on anything.

Strengths:    Strong frame and front end

Weaknesses:    Wheels, cranks, bearings, brakes, heavy

Bottom Line:   
It's heavy, and all of the bearings are going to crap. The brakes are pretty much useless after the first year or so, even with new pads. I bent the rim bad from one impact. Feels kinda small now that I'm 5'10

Date Reviewed: August 20, 2004

Strengths:    The bike is decent for a beginner. It sucks balls after you learn the bunny hop because the rims bend, the grips wear down in a week if your lucky, its heavy as ballz. The stem and forks are decent because there non-threaded 1 1/8. The tires are nice, and pegs are fine.

Weaknesses:    This bike is terrible, i wish i bought the performer. It is so heavy to learn bunny hops with. The seat sux, it has sucky padding so when u learn bar spins your knees get sore. The pedals are heavy, and grind down in no time, it has a 1- pc crank that snaps in no time. The sprocket is 3/32 so it bends after grinding on it. The rims are singlewalled. This bike over all sucks get a haro or something

Bottom Line:   
Bike is horrible, buy the performer

Dia Compe 985, 986, or 987's?

So I am putting together a new build, and I have the opportunity to use my choice of Dia Compe brakes. 985, 986, or 987. I prefer the 986’s. I think they are the simplest, easiest to adjust, and most attractive. And most importantly I think they have the best “brake feel”. Just curious if anyon ... Read More »
