Strengths:    Great Frame-thick dropouts-

Steel Rims-sometimes what you need-aluminum will bend easeir than steel, so this is a good thing. It doesn't make much of a difference in the weight of the bike.

Nothing has bent, warped, or broken yet and I've ridden it for 5 1/2 months now...
Its got Quality from grips to hub bearings, all the way around-especailly for the price.

Weaknesses:    None as of yet.
Treat your bike correctly and keep your bike tuned and it will last forever-like my GT I had for 7 years -still to this day.

Bottom Line:   

Actually, it's my younger brother's bike. I own a REDLINE Cruiser ( read my review(: ), yet I still ride it, which is why I can write this report. It's a great bike-yet it has a *_*SMALL FRAME*_*.I'm 5'11 so it's definetly small for me. If your're short, 4'something, it would be a good bike for you.
Like the others have said, It has bad acceleration, yet good top speed- the reason being the gear. The factory gear it comes with is like that. I like it becuase I have strong legs, not fast legs.If you want good acceleration (or easier pedeling from the get-go), buy a smaller gear.
A great bike from DIAMONDBACK-pay $150 for it than spending $80 on a WAL-MART bike, it's worth it. If you want a larger frame, I'd say get a NITRUS.
But Anyways, This bike is a good bike, but don't get it if you're tall.

Strengths:    Good top speed, sturdy, easy to maneuver.

Weaknesses:    No pegs, slow acceleration.

Bottom Line:   
Great overall BMX for a decent price, not easy to break, and speaking of brakes, good stopping power. So if your a beginner for BMX's (like me) or juust looking for something to get around on I recommend this bike.
