“Nice Bmx newcomer”

The Good: Weight, Feel, Ride, Durable, colors.

The Bad: none so far

Overall Review:

I have been riding many Bmx bikes over the years, Eastern , Stolen, Gt Fit Eastern

and this one stacks up well, newcomer with great price and great features

I riden alot and wasted alot of money but this BMX is definitly no waste of money

put it through the paces and you wont be dissapointed, but you may be if you opt to buy a more expensive bike and pay for a name instead of the quality.I give this BMXa sickest ever rating, good on ya Academy.

“Awsome Awsome Awsome”

The Good: Great Bmx , I bought the Aspire by Acedemy a month ago. Its the Orange Color. I have had this through its trials and it is way better than the nameless other Brand of BMX which I hasd that snapped in half, and I did same stuff on it. great weight, easy to handle and ride, awsome control feel. Wicked wicked wicked for the price you pay. I am stuck on Academy now cant wait to see what they will produce in the future.

The Bad: No Bad, this BMX is F&%*king awsome

Overall Review:

Awsome awsome Awsome, did I mention its AWSOME.

“One of my favorite bikes”

The Good: its solid, light, great looking in Matt black and durable

The Bad: the brake pads faded the paint on my rim in the first two days but some clear pads fixed that up!

Overall Review: I would recommend this bike to all beginners to intermediate riders it is definitely worth the money I rate it 4.5 star
