Strength:

good beginner bike

Weakness:

its way to heavy for tricks once you've become into freestyle

its a good bike to learn how to ride over jumps but if you actually want to catch air and speed i suggest a lighter bike such as Fit or Fly

don't have one   Weekend Warrior [Apr 23, 2009]
Strength:

It has a pretty tought frame and forks, not like those mongoose pieces of crap.

Weakness:

The bike is a bit too heavy and the brakes suck. I've also had some problems with the cranks and wheels. It's not too great for dirt jumping.

If you're a beginner this is an amazing bike, since you won't be getting much air anyway. When you get some more experience you could buy a more expensive and lighter bike.

Strength:

speed, versatility, turning, size (small bike but its great). i would recommend the bike to lots of people. great for racing.

Weakness:

its a great bike to learn on and the speed that you can gain is superb, great for going on jumps and stuff.

dm zigler   Weekend Warrior [Aug 29, 2003]
Strength:

Looks Cool, Low maintanence

Weakness:

Heavy, General- department store quaity (low quality). The bike looks as if it could handle abuse thrown at it due to its weight and thick tube frame design. I have had to replace many parts on this baby because it just isnt Heavy duty enough for what the average bmxer has to throw at it. The crank/pedal snapped in two on one landing when i jumped down a flight of stairs.

This isnt really a good bike for anyone except if your on a budget. Its designed for freestyling, but its way to heavy, almsot like a jumping frame. As said elswhere, the brakes aren't powerful enough to stop quickly, I would advise upgrading them. A good bike for a beginner who has no money.

*Also, I felt Dicks had bad customer support. The general lack of knowledge on their product was a downer. The mechanics didn't even know how to tighten the seat.

Phillip   Weekend Warrior [May 03, 2007]
Strength:

The Bike is over all really strong. The Crank Has went through some crazy stuff and still work great. I have no problems with the headset. It is a pretty good bike for dirt and a little bit of vert.

Weakness:

The rims, and Hubs suck to a high degree. If you buy the bike I strongly suggest to buy some eastern hubs and rims from Dans Comp. The brakes suck really bad. I would also buy some We the People brakes from Dans Comp. It is quite heavy for the looks.

If I were you I would buy the bike but make sure you have some money to buy brakes, rims, and hubs if your hardware go wrong. Also I would make sure to look into Dans Comp.

justin cassel   Weekend Warrior [Jun 09, 2007]
Strength:

it is heavy duty. is good at wheelies, rails, dirt trails, has excelent balance.

Weakness:

heavy, brake system fails constantly, rip it out when you get it and instal another one.

buy the bike if you want a easy rider, that packs a punch when you need it

Ben   Downhiller [Jan 25, 2006]
Strength:

Easily manuverable, great for downhill because of its heaviness... holds up VERY well and a desent bike for flatland at your local park or something

Weakness:

Probably it's weight! Definatly not the bike for you if you're into racing or freestyle... You cant get a lot of air, but its still desent air... i've jumped staircases with it that have 9 steps...

If you looking for "big" air... then this is not the bike for you, but if your looking for an amazingly fun time at your local park or downhill (like me) than this is your DREAM BIKE!!! Trust me, i've looked for this kind of bike for years, i'll never pick any other kind of bike as long as i live!
