Date Reviewed: June 29, 2010

Strengths:    Good bike. Not much needs replaced.
Only got new parts to make it lighter.
Lands jumps nicely.


Weaknesses:    28.4Lbs.
Brakes hit my thumb.
Brakes suck.


Bottom Line:   
I was expecting a 600$ bike because that's how much I was spending. Got this and could afford tons of parts to make it even better. I didn't need the parts I bought but since it was so cheap I could afford them. I love this bike and I've had some really good bikes this is probably my favorite.
5 Out of 5.. no, 7 out of 5!

Date Reviewed: February 20, 2008

Strengths:    Strong frame, good crank, fast.

Weaknesses:    Only the weight. Its nearly 30 pounds.

Bottom Line:   
I've ridden this bike so many miles over a year and a half, and have hopped it hundreds of times. The weights a little bit of a drawback, but i can still get an easy 12 inch hop. Every now and then i have to take out the sprocket for cleaning, but other than that this bike has held together extremely well for an everyday rider. I'd buy this bike again if lost or stolen for sure.

Strengths:    Really reliable and robust. Takes a beating like a man.

Weaknesses:    Brakes wear down fast. Heavy. Hard to get same parts as most other BMX bikes.

Bottom Line:   
Rocking cool bike. Throw it around, it gets back up and will take more. Rain, dirt, mud you name it, it'll take it and eat it up. I'd recommend it to all who like to tool around and doing what ever. Probably an low intermediate bike. I own one and it is doing real well, I love it.

I built It up using parts I had laying around in my backyard, but the build raised some questions. First off, this thing is SLACK. Like to the point that it's hard to hold the bike straight. jus ...
