Strength:

this is a really strong and light bike. im a racer so i take some pretty good spills and the bike is holding up good.

Weakness:

the rims are weak, i bent them after jumping for 2 weeks.

this is a great raceing or dirtjumping bike. i would not recomend this for pros unles you make some upgrages. great bike for the money, strong, really lite. recoment for intermidate racers, jumpers.

Strength:

It is rather strong. I haven't had any problems with the frame yet, and it has taken some pretty good spills. I'm not sure how long it would last with a pro though.

Weakness:

Like i said the frame is pretty good and pretty light, but the fork is cheap. It lasted one spill on a jump. The factory rims are rather cheap. All the other parts one the bike seem okay.

Great bike for the money. A little on the smaller size, but im 6'6" and i dont have anyproblems riding it. I would recomend this bike for beginers or intermiadte riders. i just wouldn't trust the rims or the fork to last too long. it your a jumper at least

Strength:

Great frame, good looks, old school design, best gift I got from stepdad at 9 when it was new.

Weakness:

wheels are way too weak, for weight reasons, replaced the rear wheel and front still holds up.

I'll keep this thing 'til I die! Its my prized possesion.

Similar Products Used: Too many cheap store boughtcheap piles.
