Strengths:    rims and frame are both very strong and reliable

It is a very strong bike, but very heavy. Good bike but there are soooo many other bikes at the same price which are much better. DONE MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID!

Strengths:    nice rims,hubs,seat and treads. I love the grips. The peadles have alot of pins i kinda like that.

Weaknesses:    stem breakes realy easy. I craked it in four spots in one month. Forkes to heavy. the seat post is to big i need to replace it and the only way i can is to order one off of specialized and thats to much work.

Bottom Line:   
this bike is over rated not as good as others made to beleve there are alot of better bikes for the same price or cheaper.

Weaknesses:    Crank arms, pedals.

Bottom Line:   
I didnt do anything crazy with it yet when I was riding it under normal condtitions, the left crank arm popped right off. Overall it's a dope bike. Rides smooth, feels good to ride. I would get this bike, make sure everythings tighened REAL good, and go kick some ass.

Date Reviewed: August 9, 2006

Strengths:    I own the 2007 seven model, and i'll tell you, its one sick bike. Nice looking paint job, leather seat, great grips and pedals. It's as lite as most racing bikes. The components are top of the line too.

Weaknesses:    The 2007 model doesn't come with a gyro, or atleast mine didn't, and the grips get your hands sweaty pretty fast.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is the best around. You can't possibly get more bang for your buck anywhere else.

Bottom Line:   
It is a good all around bike. People who want to ride dirtjumps or skateparks will feel comfortable on this bike. Anyone can adjust to the feeling of this bike pretty fast. Basically the best bike you can by without changing any parts if any.

Date Reviewed: August 12, 2004

Strengths:    Everything on the bike is good no noises at all except for the cassette this bike is awesome.

Weaknesses:    It has bad grips and you might have to cut the bars down.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is the best out there and by the way I have the 2005 fuse 4 and not the 2004.But if I was you I would get it chop down the bars andput new grips on and ride and do alot of dirt jumping on it because that is what it is basically built for.I would buy it only if you do freestyle becuase it is not meant for racing.this bike has everthing you need and it is stock.It has chain tensioners,a flip flop cassette,light as heck,hub guard, and a 25t sprocket.

Submitted by Colby a Downhiller from Amarillo,TX USA

Date Reviewed: March 16, 2004

Strengths:    The bike must be the best bike I have erver had so far. The strengh to weight ratio is better than any jumper I've seen or rode, It would take a high end race bike to get as light as this thing is. A double butted minpulated frame, 36 Big Citys on sealed hollow axle l&R drive cassette hub,
a Luftalarm aftermarket crank and sprocket($235), CNC'ed stem 7.75 rise bars, 125psi tires w/ dual tread compound and casing w/dual casing. euro bottom bracket.


Weaknesses:    Cant find none yet.

Bottom Line:   
If you can aford it it is way better than 99% of even they custom bike frame builds. It's problly lighter and stronger than what your riding right now.
