Strength:

Frame feels very balanced and smooth, although it's a little heavy. I've had hoffs and dragonflies before, and got this secondhand when my last bike was stolen and I was poor. I've never replaced it because I love the ride. The original BB was badly adjusted and wouldn't stay adjusted when I sorted it, until I used loctite on the threads of the lockring. The rear hub failed after a while, but at this pricepoint it was alright given the hammering it got. I kept the rim though, and it's a bit battered but still going strong. 4130 tubing, inc forks. Forks have brake bosses so no useless centre pull caliper!

Weakness:

BB was a self adjusting itself loose model, but other than that very little wrong with this bike for the price.

I'm surprised by just how well this bike rode with the original kit. Not sexy, but there wasn't much need to upgrade until bits failed because it worked well. Wasn't quite so worried about getting it stolen like the expensive one I had before - think I've found a keeper.

Strength:

Tubeuler 3pc Cranks. Double Wall rims with eyelets. Platform pedals. bestwick design 4pc handlebars. Aluminum bar ends. Soft seat. Chain tensioner.Brakes (NOT BRAKE PADS)Weight is good about 18kg/40lbs. Air bag tyres rule You can pump em up to 100 but it is very bumpey.

Weakness:

Brake Pads are crap. Loose type bb's. Grips wear out. Black paint on rims. Seals on rims for bb's are fully crap.

I would have given it a higher rating but to give it 5 chillies a bike should cum wit the top parts and should hardley ever root up but hey when u ride em hard they stuff up every so often. great bike but see if you can assemble the bike yourself as the shop never tightens anything up. Value for money is 5 chillies as a hoffmen or haro with these parts is worth about $700. sum parts should also be changed if u are a serious rider. great bike gt rules.

Strength:

Strong frame, smooth riding, nice strong rims.

Weakness:

Crank

A bit heavy, but seems very well built, I did have problems with my crank loosing up, but this appears to be fixed now, I think it was assembeled poorly. Brakes are okay, the front is better than the back. Rides great though, smooth and effortless. For the price it was a good deal it seems.

Strength:

its all good, could not find anything wrong with it
had to tighten up chain after about a days riding but i guess new chains stretch

Weakness:

brakes could be better

its a wicked bike, goes hard the only stock things are frame rims and seat because i like to buy everything as good as it can get its colour is red red primo (the wall) tires, red hangers, red seat clamp and i cant remember what else.
umm its got some bling globe shoes ring thingy is on my hangers, a few half shoelaces around the joint, shoe laces in hubs.

this bike suits just about every1 ive been riding for about 3-4 years now and since ive gotten this bike its been so much better

suits park, street and dirt more than anything else

Fantastic bike reccoment to anyone!
