Date Reviewed: October 1, 2007

Strengths:    has a great strong frame and is pretty light. i have jumped the crap out of this thing and nothing has broke. I've even crashed pretty bad and the bike looks and rides brand new.

Weaknesses:    the chain wheel and free wheel suck somthin feirce. the size's are all wrong i went with a 25t instead of the original 39t and a 10t free wheel my bike flys now but thats the only down part the bike is great for the money

Bottom Line:   
the bike is great for the money and the only down part is the chain wheel and freewheel if you fix that your general lee will be an outstanding bike to do dirt or street. i personly prefer street but then again i dont race so what ever your personal preferance is

Weaknesses:    needs 4130 chromoly frame, 3 piece tubular cranks, and taller bars

Bottom Line:   
this bike is awesome,if you like dirt jumps buy it

Date Reviewed: October 11, 2004

Strengths:    great name. great looks. fairly strong frame and also arguably light compared to others.

Weaknesses:    not sure about the rims. dont't seem too strong we'll see. some parts of the bike such as some of the bolts are very week. I was assembling the bike and i broke one of the bolts on the stem. the bolt was made out of thin aluminum and wasn't very impressive to me.

Bottom Line:   
the bikes pretty good and has a strong frame. What i'm not imprested with is some of the parts on the bike. I'v been riding it for about 3 weeks. I live in the city so going dirtjumping at the local spot isn't too entertaining since the jumps are so small. I haven't really had the chance to go big with the bike yet but hopefully after a trip to sand hill ranch, I'll be able to test the true strength of the bike. I'll probably end up upgrading the rims to sun ryno lites if i can.

Date Reviewed: August 1, 2004

Strengths:    the tire are wicked and the handle bars are 2. the seat is nice it dosent tear at ease 3 piece crank is good with new crank arms.14 millmeter alexs

Weaknesses:    3 peice crank bent the 2nd month i had it the frame cracked on the main tube and the allumnim rims bent my first race i had it in.the fork is pretty weak

Bottom Line:   
the bike needs a lot of adjustments and upgrades and it will be fine i race i dont hit big jumps and it falls a part dont buy it unless you ride and dont pull tricks. if you buy it you need a lot of spare money for better parts.

Anybody running a General Lee 40T cassette in 2x10?

I'm interested in the General Lee 40T cassette adapter to run it with my 24x38 XT crank. Technically, that would match the derailleur 43t max capacity, and would give me that super low gearing when running out of fitness (which happens to me often...). Anybody tried it?Read More »

Announcing The General Lee (and 5 hours of fun on Mount Diablo)
