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.

Yakima Viper compatibility question

I have an older model Yakima fork mount bike rack. Since my disc brakes make it a really snug fit (too snug to fit correctly), does anybody know if a replacement Yakima viper head unit would fit? It seems like it would, but I'm not sure how to find out for sure. FYI--I have a Surly Karate Monkey f ... Read More »

Fork Mount roof rack: Yakima Viper or Rocky Mounts Pitchfork?

Trying to decide between these two. I've had Vipers in the past, and in spite of some of the negative reviews out there, mine were fine. Some reviewers on mtbr stated that their disc brake calipers rubbed, and they had to dremel the rack. I don't want to have to modify a brand new rack. Anyone h ... Read More »
