Strengths: Tough. I've put this through quite a bit.
The 08 model I have looks mint.
Weaknesses: HEAVY. More than my 26 inch MTB!
Kenda Tyres are useless. #flats in 6 months.
BB is loose and won't tighten
Good for beginners because its cheap and the weight teaches you how to bunny hop well.
Has lasted what I've thrown at it
It will be reduced to a thrash bike in 1 month when i get a good bike. Won't sell it cas it looks Mad Core as.
Beginners bike only.
Useless to anyone good.
The tires only hold 65psi, making it hard to really flatland,... blew them up in about 2 weeks of having them over inflated to 100psi, the brakes just sucked, they couldn't hold the wheel im place so I removed them, the rims were cheap and got bent up within a week of use. The Oryg seemed to get caught up when I was working on whiplashes, and anything with a bar spin involved. The cranks always came loose after 2+ hours of hard riding, and the bottom bracket seemed to make a crunching noise while I was riding. The bike is a "freestyle" bike but doesn't come with freecoaster hubs, so "freestyling" kind of sucks unless you like pedaling backwards. In general, the bike setup needs a lot of work, but the frame and bars are nice and solid.

Strengths: This bike is overall a well bike.Good frame handle bars are a little to long but can be cut down to your size. good crank set i moddified mine with a primo 3 piace.
I would say myself as a exparianced rider that this bike would be good for new people that want to try the sport, it has a small from witch is really good for fast corners and also for bunny-hops witch is the hardest trick to learn for the new guy
Similar Products Used: None this is a good bike overall.

Strengths: Good brakes,tires and gears
Weaknesses: A bit small(not sutable for adults)
It is a great bike because its light and a bit small.You can edo,whellie AND bunny hop very easy.(espeacially bunny hop,because thats the hardest begginers tricks of all).You should rally buy this bike cause the parts dont break easy and you dont have to pay alot of money for them.Take it from me because i always crash and nothing ever breaks!
My last few rides have been really good - I feel like I'm just dialed into the trail and am "in the zone". I'm seeing lines & obstacles really well, finding new, more fun and creative lines, my timing is is on, cornering feels smooth, and I'm just having a ton of fun. It's almost like I'm seeing t ...

My seatpost/saddle "disappeared" (I left it behind when packing up at a trailhead and when I returned it was no where to be found). I never noticed what the post diameter is (I haven't had the bike very long) and now that I need another I need that info. 31.6 would have been my guess, but when I m ... Read More »
