Strength:

Basically Everything

Weakness:

The only downfalls would be the difficulty of attaching pegs to the front axle. You need to buy a 14mm rear axle in order to attach pegs which makes things a little more expensive.

This bike is great, a little heavier for smaller riders (as I found out, 5'3" and 52kg) But otherwise its a great bike all around. As most people have said, chuck on some different tires for whatever you wanna do and ur set.

Taylor J   Cross Country Rider [Mar 20, 2006]
Strength:

Tough frame. Good style of brakes. Very light weight. Easy to move around. Very stable.

Weakness:

I need stronger rims. Its kinda small going from a Dyno to a Diamondback. No gyro. The front style of brakes.

For the price I paid, it is like a steal. And no it aint a stolen. For 30 dollars i couldnt have gone wrong. The paint is cipped in in very litte spots. The rims are signitly bent. Cant even tell. The seat is a little ripped on the back of it. The only reason I got it for that price is cause the kid i bought it from was 6' 4'' and you know what that would look like on that bike. Im really short so it makes up for it anyway.

Similar Products Used: The most similiar item I would say that I have used is a Gt Dyno Zone. I really like that bike alot.

ben pierce   Weekend Warrior [Feb 16, 2002]
Strength:

i think that the diamond back ignitor bmx is an awsome bike it has a strong fram and is awsome for the big jumps, it also has a v-brake at the back which is good for back manuals.

Weakness:

the seat is hard as hell and the front brake is not as good as the back, also i is a little on the heavy side

for its price it is an awsome bike. if you are just starting out like i am this is a great way to do it.

josh thomas   Weekend Warrior [Jul 28, 2005]
Strength:

good brakes and quite light in weight

Weakness:

back tyre (buckled 1st day) seat- hard

This bike is a very good bike for begginers, it is very steady and does not woble when you go fast to do a jump.
I would recomend this bike to any one from begginers to pros.
The only people that shouldn't buy it is little kids like 8 years of age because as i said it is quite heavy and i recomend it to teenagers like 13 and so on.

Strength:

lightweight,fast for cornering,strong frame,can fit a maxxis 2.25 tire on,great for jump,easy to manual........

Weakness:

uncomfortable seat,pedalsand when bought has a well small back tire. But all can be changed easily

This is a hell of a light bike and good for the money,i have got maxxis tyres fishbone bite me pedals,diamond back fat daddy pegs and onoff grips. having these makes it a bit heavier but a hell of a lot better

Matt Jensen   Racer [Nov 19, 2004]
Strength:

sturdy, lightweight frame, smooth ride, good overall perfomance for racing and jumping.

Weakness:

none in my mind (the front brake is fine if you know how to tune it properly)

i've been a freestyle BMXer since i bought this bike and its done nothing but serve my needs. you couldnt find a better, more solid bike for the same price as these are worth. It could very well be the bike that i win tons of money racing and competing on.
