Strengths:    stiff, but what freestyle bike isnt

Weaknesses:    all

Bottom Line:   
This bike series is horrible. I bought the joey garcia team model, First the brochure promised me a 36 14 gear ratio It came with 36 16 ... then when bought the 14t freewheel it didnt fit on the hub so in the end i had to buy a 44t front sprocket to get the correct ratio. Next, no matter how clean or how much locktite i put on the stem bolts they would not keep my head set tight and the ugly aluminum locking nut does nothing. 3rd after a week the tapered bearings in the cranks schwinn was so proud of, they suck the outer casings on those broke. and if thats not enough I just noticed the cranks are different lengths. I hate swchinn, I will never buy anything from them again.
