Strength:

Strong, light frame, great geometry, good value for money

Weakness:

paper thin chainrings, cranks, rear hub, front fork.

Great bike for the money, and I have it pretty much stock except for the Maxxis Holy Roller 2.4" tires front & rear. Out back the 2.4 is too wide and I need to go back to a 2.2 as the front derr rubs on the tire when trying to get into the small chainring. I use this bike for light trials riding but mostly urban streetriding. It's done everything I've asked of it, but I would recommend a better front fork, and definitely new crankset & chainrings. If I rode it as hard as I used to ride when I was younger I would have destroyed the cranks by now. Great entry level urban street bike for the budget-minded. The frame is a great base and the rest can be easily upgraded down the road.

Strength:

good for a beginner jumper, strong frame, good fork, brakes

Weakness:

cranks, tires grips!!!

this is a good beginner as i said. i was a little low on money at that time and i needed a bike. if i had one more month i would've got the stp2. this is good for moderate jumping. DO NOT JUMP BIG!!!!! i blew the stock rear tire(it was at 55 psi (reg)) and my cranks are so bent i had to remove the front derailler. it has awesome brakes!! stoppies are so easy you wouldnt believe. my brakes haven't faded yet. im getting discs because my rims always go out of true so im getting a good wheelset. bottem line if you know you wont makeit dont do it with this bike. if you have any questions email me at antman3249@yahoo.com

Strength:

Versatile, durable, and has a clean look.

Weakness:

None so far.

I bought this bike for use around campus. As the name suggests, it's made for sreet/trail/park. It serves its purpose for the streets and parks, but not for trails...well not for trails around here. Trails or streets that have jagged gravel will cut into the tires, however, I haven't had a flat, yet. As mentioned in the "bike setup" I plan on upgrading some parts on the bike. All in all, it's not a bad bike. It's great for a starter bike.

Strength:

stromg frame, very easy to ride, comfortable on the trail as well as on the street sessions

Weakness:

cranks sucked, slight creak, but it comes and goes.

i LOVE to ride this bike it's a blast, allows me to ride anywhere i want to. if you have a budget like i do it's really worth looking into. it's worth every bit i paid for it and plan on up grading as i go.
