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.

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.

The song remains the same when your in this zone...

Over the years and on many rides I have had a consistent playlist of songs that pop into my head at certain times of the MTB sufferfest. On steep long hills the disco classic "Disco Inferno" is on my mind and I can hear myself singing to myself the classic chorus of "burn, baby, burn, :madmax:Disco ... Read More »

Heart Rate Zone Training

I was told to use a heart rate monitor for training. I read up on the zones. It begins to make sense. It seems the key is to always train in one particular zone. I think that once there is improvement, you can then train in another zone. But, here is where I am confused: Whai if I just want to go fo ... Read More »
