Date Reviewed: March 16, 2006

Strengths:    Really strong and solid feel to It, I feel confident throwing anything on this rig...not that I can mind you ;) Very smooth In riding too, from dirt to street.

Weaknesses:    Ermmm, the pedals are kinda poor In the wet...can get slippy fast, not to mention painful. Also the bottom bracket ain't the strongest. I have to check and tighten mine every couple of sessions.

Bottom Line:   
Idea for beginners and upwards I'd say, certainly gives you a lot of confidence to ride and try new tricks. Just keep your eye on the bottom bracket...though not while riding! ;) Superb, I love It

Date Reviewed: December 3, 2005

Strengths:    Very Lightweight if you remove pegs, front brakes, cut the handlebars and seat post. Very strong and durable

Weaknesses:    CRANK! the crank on this bike could use some work... I haveto tighten mine up everytime I ride. Snapped a brake cable last week doing tire taps, but other than that, no other weaknesses

Bottom Line:   
Great Bike for the price... I only paid 150 but noticed that other people paid more.. Just wish the crank was more durable.

Submitted by Jay Brenn a Cross Country Rider from australia, NSW, newicastle

Date Reviewed: October 28, 2005

Strengths:    Great strong bike. Can take nearly anything. Easy to pedal on and climb hills. Great for freestyle riding, dirt jumping or just simply cruising around your hood.

Weaknesses:    The only real floor in this marvel is the weight of the bike. although its a very solid bike it does hav sum weight. i would suggest removing the peggs if your doing dirt jumping just to lighten it up a bit. the pegs add about an extra 1.2 kilograms. And sometimes the screws in the cranks come loose so you have to tighten them up every so often

Bottom Line:   
It is a great bike for me and it would be to many others. Littler riders may have more trouble getting it off the ground though. Very sturdy bike. Highly recomeded.

Dia Compe 985, 986, or 987's?

So I am putting together a new build, and I have the opportunity to use my choice of Dia Compe brakes. 985, 986, or 987. I prefer the 986’s. I think they are the simplest, easiest to adjust, and most attractive. And most importantly I think they have the best “brake feel”. Just curious if anyon ... Read More »
