Strength:

Really strong and well balanced frame and very very strong rims

Weakness:

Weights a bit to much (36 lbs)

I like this bike alot! Its a strong and well balanced bike and it might be a bit hard to learn how to control the weight at first but after some training its just as easy as with any other bike

Strength:

This is one of the most solid frames I have ever ridden. The geometry is perfect for wheelies (I'm up to 300 feet). The extra gussets not only make it look cool but it strengthens that much more. Plus the fact that it is full cromo. The frame is a definante plus because I can get a bit sketchy sometimes.

Weakness:

As with any stock bike some parts are crap. This goes with the cables, gyro, pedals and brakes. A couple weeks ago i broke my back brake cables, later replaced with Odyssey slic cables. The gyro is kinda finiky, its hard not to get it to tilt and keep it that way. Even thought these brakes still stop, they don't have that nice and firm feel. This is because the arms are thin and the cables suck. These pedals may not be the best on the market, but they get the job done. But at the end of the day they still suck. And the weight, holy crap (36lbs). The paint scratches real easy.

This bike is excellent for the begginer or the person thats been around the block more than once. I've been bmxing for 6 or 7 years so I know how to push it. I've had some pretty nasty crashes one including a dirt bike, but this bike just comes back. This is one of those bikes that feels so strong you think you can take on any jump. I'ts fun to go flying by on a wheelie by friends. This bike is FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Strength:

the rims on this bike are surprisly strong en the cranks are also strong the frame itself is a verry strong design, the brake system is also verry good only the stock setup wont work i had to replace the brakepads and the fork is one heavy duty unit i think it will last forever i did so many abuse on it.. no any problem only the paint is scratched..

Weakness:

the frame is a good and strong design only there is only one weak point and thats where the rear end is welled under the seatclamp thats the spot it will break how i know that? becouse ik broke it there after one year but the lifetime garuntee is nice:) i got new frame for free:P:D but dont worry it will last good and the 2005 model had that problem solved (my friend has it).. you will also break the handlebar at least i did and my friend to becouse it is made out of steel so i purchased an Flybikes Pantera bar:)

This bike is verry cool it kics ass it rides verry good i can bunnyhop verry high with it the frame is verry good balanced but heavy but thats not a problem for me you can easly spin the bike in the air 360s and 180 are not a big deal the frame geometry is nice:) i love it i have an other version of the frame becouse i broke the other one an there is the top tube 20.25" instead of 20.75" and the rear and is a bit shortend (this features is also in the new 2005 model) but my first frame was far much the same but new frame kicks ass:).. the brakes on the bike needs a bit of tweaking when you buy it mine did not work well.. now it does:P and you will find out that the handlebar will bend and break becouse it is made out of steel.. but the rest of the bmx is good en works well its a worth of money for me:)

Strength:

Very strong frame. pretty light. wheels take forever to wear out (about 4-5 months).

Weakness:

the pegs that come with the bike are horible. if you dont gring, get new ones, if you dont take them off, through them away.

A good buy.Go for it. Good for all skill levels, but made for about a standard BMXer (1-3 years). NEVER USE THE PEGS!!!

Strength:

Durable frame with dual cable rear brake, factory gyro and great crank and forks... not to mention pretty strong rims... oh yeah and it comes with chain tensioners...

Weakness:

Heavy as hell and the pedals sort of suck...

I got this bike on clearence, seeing as how its nearly a 300$ bike I couldnt pass it up brand new for 100$. not to mention it;s stock equip alone is worth more... I am just learning to ride freestyle as oppose to race but I feel like this is the perfect bike to learn on with its sturdy frame and equip.
