Strength:

The fram is a beast. i could withstand anything i put it trough.

Weakness:

Rims. They suck. They bend very easily. Also the bottom bracket gets wobbly and squeaks alot.

This bike has alot of pros, but has alot of cons. if i were to redesign this bike i would change the crank, the rims and the brackets.

Strength:

Geometry, its a fast bike, full chromo frame and fork

Weakness:

cranks(any pinch bolts suck), rims(bent rear broken spokes)

cheap wheels and cranks like almost any complete you'd buy, replace them when they break and have a way fun bike!

Strength:

This is a very strong bike and is very cheap. throw on some 3 piece cranks, mtb stem and bars and a 4 to 5 inch fork and u are golden. this bike is sick and has the greatest feel not only that nobody has it. its rare i guess

Weakness:

The front wheel is 12mm so you have to change the axle to the regualr size if u want it to fit on an mtb fork

great bike and very cheap if u build it up like i said ull love it so much. ull do better next year

laurence pound   Weekend Warrior [Dec 02, 2006]
Strength:

the frame is geometry is perfect for jumping and street and its rock solid, the bars are just the right height and width, and the gear is good for accelerating quick as well as long journeys, if you adjust the brakes right there amazing for caliper brakes

Weakness:

the rims completly suck ! there not alex rims there made by
'alex' and are crappy and buckled when they are new.
the stem has to be tightened RIGHT up before it doesnt slip when you land.
the bottom bracket is awfull its tight and smooth for about a week then it becomes really wobbly and it squeeks when riding

its a great bike, but all the work has gone into the frame [which is perfecly balanced and super tough]so apart from the forks and bars, the components are cheep and will need replacing within months
although its allready cost me more money i dont regret buying it because i know once i upgrade the parts it will be amazing!

Paul Martin   Weekend Warrior [Dec 28, 2002]
Strength:

this bike has all the makings of an extreme street machine.
frame is very strong and is made to suit the every day hard rider. the front forks that come with the bike ( rigid ) give the rider the ability to practise manuals and build on their bunnyhop's, after a short time on the bike i have felt that a change in fork to a 4" or 5" fork gives the rider more freedom and the ability to face bigger things, so i woul strongly recommend that you take this into account. wheels- front wheel is partly unstable i felt and also my rideing friends, so i recommend you have a change of wheel ready or buy one soon after buying the bike, though the back wheel to my suprise happened to be one of the best wheels i have ever had on my bike, it rides very stable and can be your best friend under certain times. handlebars are very strong and are possibly the best positioned bars for a street rider. cranks are the second most strongest part of the bike from the frame, they are very secure and are built to a high standard, they have took alot of abuse from me so far and yet i am still to see a mark on them.

Weakness:

the front wheel has seemed to be the main weeknesses for me, it seems to feel as if it will fold at any given free moment but doesnt but it is a threat to the rider if he is unable to trust his front wheel. this is not a weekness of such but forks hold back the more extreme rider, the rider who likes the odd stair jump/gap, i personally recommend 4 or 5 inch forks as they fit the bike well and are just the perfect fit for a street rider.

this bike is the best bike for street ever, all my fellow riders have street bikes, BMX's and downhill bikes when i should have done that but i had the chance of getting my dream downhill bikes. for anyone who thinks about getting this bike, please do, you will be very happy and if you take my tips on what to replace you'll be wanting to shake my hand

Similar Products Used: not ridden any similar products, i have a 2003 Wade Simmons RM7 , 2003 Stinky Nine and a 2003 Norco A-Line and i have the Super 8 frame, felt it was time to get a bike to fit my street days.

scotto   Weekend Warrior [Aug 17, 2003]
Strength:

frame is really nice and a good size, good wheels

Weakness:

the one piece cranks, gone as soon as it got here

its a very nice street bike, already feel more comfortable on it than on the DMR with 2000 Z1 5"
the rigid fork really helps with jumps and manuals a little bit
