Good frame, parts wear out though.

Rating:

The Good: Great frame, no complaints. This is a great option if you plan on customizing it afterwards.

The Bad: Most of the parts break after a few months, first thing that went for me was the back wheel, the sprocket is trash, and the cranks should be replaced also, right now I'm riding on bent ones.

Overall:

It's worth the money if you plan on upgrading to better parts as you progress in bmx.

If you want a complete that you don't need to work on, this isn't for you.

No, they're stock 6.5''. I another person with the radia and they're the same size.

They're only 6.5, I've measured them and compared them to other bars.

I've mesured them, they might be 8 from the bottom of the stem, but its only 6.5 rise.

Thanks, I appreciate the help.

Yup, lower bars would also make manuals more difficult, right? Not balancing, but pulling up.

Money is also an issue, so if bigger bars would be the most effective change then thats what I want to get. I can't buy a new frame.

I'm only 5'7-5'8 but the bars are only 6.5 rise and 26 wide I think

I have a 20.5 inch top tube (2010 Verde Radia) and I was thinking getting bigger bars would help the feeling of the bike being small. I've ridden 20 inch TT with bigger bars and it felt larger then my bike. Just wanted to make sure that it would probably ... more ยป

as long as your leaning back, just throw the bars, catch em, and ride away. Don't take your feet off the pedals. lol

This just proves its not the bike, its the rider. He's riding a mostly stock bike and still killing it!
