Date Reviewed: March 7, 2009

Strengths:    Light, Colors, Takes abuse nicely

Weaknesses:    no gyro, no front brake, pedals arent the best for grip, handle bar grips are not the best but not bad, stock tires are not the best for carving bowls,verts at parks. None of these bother me at all, just weaknesses that come to mind.

Bottom Line:   
Love the bike, friends like it, you can tell its not your average wal mart, shopko kind of bike. Its great for all around riding. You can always change out parts if what i listed doesnt suit your needs. Pry my favorite bike that i have owned.

Date Reviewed: May 7, 2007

Strengths:    light frame, sprocket, cranks, rims are decent + tires

Weaknesses:    handelbars are too tiny and crappy. pedals as everyone has mentioned, and the gyro, and breaks suck

Bottom Line:   
This is my first real BMX bike, and it is awesome, loved it from day one. Learned everything on this bike. I'm a hard crasher, and this bike still it holding up for over 3 years, so I'm, happy. It's also good for all kinds of terrain. I used to ride dirt and the bike ripped, and when i started doing vert the bike held up equally as good on vert. Get some new brakes and your all set. Good all around sturdy bike!!
