Date Reviewed: December 14, 2008

Strengths:    Tough. I've put this through quite a bit.
The 08 model I have looks mint.
Good Geometry

Weaknesses:    HEAVY. More than my 26 inch MTB!
Kenda Tyres are useless. #flats in 6 months.
BB is loose and won't tighten

Bottom Line:   
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.

Date Reviewed: September 21, 2007

Strengths:    Light weight

Weaknesses:    Tires, brakes, rims, Oryg, cranks, bottom bracket

Bottom Line:   
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.

Weaknesses:    grips,Rims

Bottom Line:   
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

Getting "in the zone" during a ride

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 ...

Seatpost diameter for 2012 Rift Zone 29er

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 »
