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 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.
Bike Setup: gryo, steel pegs, front and rear braking system, maximum strip.

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.
Great bike, but needs better aftermarket components.
Weaknesses: a little heavy. should go a bit faster.
i recomend the bike i mostly just free ride on it i dont race or anything ive tried racing twice and i won the bike is good i strongly recomend it. try taking the pegs off because it might be lighter. the bike is perfect for freestyle 360 handlebar spin.
Bike Setup: kenda kiniption c303 xrims. tektro sst oryg brakes. 4130 cr-mo down tube.

Strengths: Strong frame and front end
Weaknesses: Wheels, cranks, bearings, brakes, heavy
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
Bike Setup: Primo balance wheels, GT pro crank, khe bar,khe seat,khe front axle and khe premium tyres, odyssey rotor, odyssey seatpost and odyssey rear axle...

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

Strengths: thick axils great for high jumps and can stand a crap load of presher and lightweight good bike to do tricks on.
this bike is awsome its light weight and can stand crap loads of pressure the moneys worth it for this bike. If you race bikes this bike is not for you but if u like doing tricks this bike is defanetly for you.
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 »
On my fsr specialised stumpjumper on rear wheel one of the spokes come off. Is it bad? Do I need new wheel? Its not been abused or ridden like mad. I just leaned something on the wheel which poked one of the spokes out...
What should I do? thanksRead More »
HI! There < I'm still in the process of upgrading my 97 Specialized S.J. And for now just wondering if my Dia-compe PC-7N Brake levers will work with Avid BB7 disc set up :confused: ??? I will upgrade later , i will be replacing the cables . ThanksRead More »
I'm building up a cyclocross/ commuter bike and already have the 287V levers on road style drop bars. I want to run disc drakes and to my understanding the mountain version of Avid BB7s would be compatible. I just want to confirm that my information is accurate!
Thanks!Read More »
Hey guys anyone have a pair of messed up Suntour XC-Compe pedals? I need the aluminum body for one. But also interested in a complete pair. The XC-Compe pedals are double sided and have a regular pedal size like XC-Pro pedals. These are not the same as Beartrap XC-II pedals.
these are the pedals: ... Read More »
