Strength:

light and easy to control, good in the air and tricks, easy to hop and the grab pad under the seat is useful too

Weakness:

paint chipped, forks scratched and the wheels are a bit bent(but that's to be expected)

this bike of mine is great for downhill, jumps and stunts, it is a jump bike though but has been used on high-stress trails and all day mountain tracks, good for street and off-road and handles well on hardpack dirt.

Strength:

- Frame strength; Steal (fully sick maaate)
- Geometry
- Looks sweet

Weakness:

Paint could be a little better quality

This is one seriously good product folks:

The geometry is absolutely spot on; you can use it for a trailbike or a dirt jumper (Some say its a good street bike too but the geometry isnt quite there i reckon). The bike is really comfortable in the air, and its very manouverable having very short chainstay's.

The frame material is (steal) chromoly; steal has much more flex than aluminium and when leaving a jump you can spring it into the air. Its also smooth over the rough sh$t. But its also a seriously strong frame too.

And also, the bike looks sweet; nice graphics and stuff.

Overall, buy it...you wont be dissapointed. Pitty about the paint, not that i really care though..

Bent the rear triangle on a drop, rust prone.
