Strength:

Great Strength. Gyro, 3 Peice Crank

Weakness:

This isnt a weakness if you know anything about dirt jumping, but 33llb. The grips are a little rough, nothing some gloves wont fix.

This bike is such a great value. This is an amazing Dirt jumping bike for anyone, begginer to pro, i would highly reccomend this, as long as you dont care about the 33llb, which you shouldnt.

Similar Products Used: Mountain Bike, so i guess not similar.

Strength:

Great Bike. I jump with it and do skate parks too. Frame is strong. Forks are amazing. Good for trail or park

Weakness:

Back tire is made for street not for dirt. The back tire is skinny too. I would get a Primo dirt Monster tire to help your traction in dirt. Grips are hard. Also the cranks can come loose if you fall hard. EXA:360 turndown with a one handed seat grab X up (laughs)that hurt. also a lil heavy

Anything is posible. Great deal. 11 out of 10. Any beginner should buy this bike, but if you buy it make sure you use it every day so you little ones can get STRONG. If your sponserd you should buy it too just buy new bars new grips new cranks. If your new to BMX read some "Ride BMX" or "BMX Plus" magazines

Hope this helps you.

Strength:

Well something must be good as my cousin nearly got his mugged off him

Weakness:

It has the stickers from a freebee in a magazine as standard, looks very dated, my cousins it is but it constantly broke in a few months and looks a wreck since February 2007, too heavy

Yes the bottom line it is. Poor quality in all aspects, overpriced and overrated. I'm sorry but Raleigh must be mad to distribute this pile of crap and they must improve drastically to survive

weavy G   Weekend Warrior [Sep 07, 2006]
Strength:

Nice frame and its kinda heavy but still nice overall very good bike

Weakness:

the CRANKS CAME LOOSE just pop on some primos and the handel bars got bent just change them out and your good to go

Just put some new cranks and bars on and you got a nice bike! Get ready for some serious diamondbacing
without changing parts still pretty good
