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
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

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.
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.

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
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.

They didn't tell me what we were doing - but it ended up being big. 32 miles and 5,500 in climbing.
We hit lots of lesser known sections of trail and had ... Read More »
If I've already posted pictures of this I apologize, I have short term memory. I just have to make sure I share photos of this bike I have. Dave aka "Cooter" at Redstone built it up and then I added the extra cycle.
Call Dave at Redstone if you need a bike from Hazzard County.

A few years ago his buddy powder coated in Orange (Duke Boy Orange that is). One day about two years ago I asked him if he would sell it ... Read More »
A while back there was a post about The DK General Lee and putting a fork on it.
I'm too lazy to search or it so I figured I would start another.
