Forks, pedals,

Bought bike new in 96' , still have it. It does not have coaster brakes nor did it come with them. This bike has outlasted all the bikes my friends had at the time and is still going strong. The only part that has been replaced due to defect is the forks. They bent on a high jump.

Strength:

Bike is 4 years old and it really rocks! I put this bike through some tough bumps and spills and it is still holding up really well. No coaster brakes contrary to previous reviewer's comment.

Weakness:

Had to replace seat.

This is my first real bike (got it for Xmas in 1996). I have many miles on it and I plan to add plenty more. I would highly recommend this bike to my peer group (9 yrs).

tom   Weekend Warrior [Jan 20, 2001]
Strength:

light weight, brakes, colours, short frame

Weakness:

wheels, no giro, grips, only pegs on the back.....so far

i think it is sh*t hot bike (good........in other words!)
very crisp and easy to hop, jump, grind and do a little flat landing on.
easy to learn on and pick up new s**t.
new forks will be nice along with head set, for pegs on the front!
this bike is always getting complimented, and so far have had no problems yet. a good starter bike that will do with some mods (about £120 worth ($180)).
apart from the teething problems, get the b**ch!
