Strength:

Strong Frame, Great geometry, looks like it can take a beating, price.

Weakness:

Too heavy for a flatland specific bike, the brake plates are ugly, freecoaster is total crap, only 1 pc cranks.

It is only 300 for after market new which is really cheap. It is a great bike for the price. My only serious complaint is the rear hub. I soon will buy a new one like a suntour, so buy it if you want a strong bike to support a big body, or if you are on a tight budget.

Strength:

stong frame. the guy that said that the freecoster was total crap is just plain full of crap.

Weakness:

well i pretty much like everything about this bike it's just plain sweet.

it's just a sweet bike all around in my book and if you are a flatlander go buy it because it reallllllly kick's butt.

Strength:

100% 4130 Chromoly Frame, 990s mounts on the seatstays, Gusseted headtube for front wheel clearance.

This is one of the best flatland bikes you can buy. I ride mine every day in the parking lots around town learning new tricks and practising learned ones. This bike has sweet geometry for tricks like steamrollers, deathtrucks and hang-5's. For the price I paid (300US) I am -very- pleased with it's 100% chromo frame, 990s front and back etc. I haven't even had problems with the Taska Freecoaster on the back if you can believe it. Overall a sweet frame suped up with amazing parts right outta the box. I only added the Odyssey 99er seat because it's kevlar, the Hoffman Easy-Chair supplied works great also. And the reason I switched to Standard Strip bars is just personal preference; the Hoffman Lowdrag handlebars work great too. Buy this bike if you like to ride BMX flatland and a little street.

Strength:

100% chromoly frame/fork, strong handlebars, nice 'n sticky grips, pegs that grip well to shoes, 990's front and back. It's not heavy, but it's not so light that you loop out while doing manuals or catwalks/wheelies.

Weakness:

This isn't really a weakness but i just don't like the brake plates. They're no problem to me. I don't know why everyone hates em so much. Oh yeah , i just didn't like the plastic pedals, they felt cheesy so i switched them with wellgo pedals for only $6.00 :-)

BUY THIS BIKE! It is perfect for riding flatland. It's nice and short so it can whip around REALLY fast. The first time i got a full tailwhip on this bike, the frame flew around and knocked me off! It was only 370 so that's a really good price for it. Oh and by the way, i haven't had any problems with the freecoaster. All you need to do is get the chain nice a tight so it won't skip. I don't know about everyone else but it worked for me!
HOFFMAN BIKES ALL THE WAY!!!

Strength:

Long for tall people and very strong frame.

Weakness:

Heavy-light depending on how you customize it.

I love my Jamie Bestwick Pro bike because if you customize it you can do almost anything. For example I do flatland, street, and vert. You got to buy this bike!
