Strength:

the suspension on my o8 stp1 is fab and the brakes are lethal (in other words the really good and really sharp)

Weakness:

the inner tubes have popped 18 times between the front of rear and the grips rub of straight away and are pathetic

a good quality bike but some of the minor parts will need upgrading and also try and upgrade the tryes as they arnt very grippy jump tracks... but if you are thinking about getting a dj bike you must go for this bike the stp1 08

Strength:

The frame! It's a great lasting starter setup that allows you to upgrade components slowly over time as things wear. This bike will take anything you throw at it. I may be biased but this is the one of the best feeling aluminum framed dirt jumpers on the market.

Weakness:

maybe some of the components, but those are upgradeable and they have done a great job for me for a long while so no worries.

You will think about riding all the time when you aren't on it, and you will forget about everything when you are on it!
