    “Good for a few months”

    The Good:

    LIght bike, i took all my breaks off and added pegs, and it stood at about 25lbs. Most parts are light

    The Bad:

    No gyro, but who uses breaks?lol. But the bearings are really easy to break, i ended up needing a new back rim. My front rim bent pretty fast too, overall weak rims/bearings. The chain is durable, but in the past 2 weeks ive broke 4 links.

    Overall Review:

    I do most beginner tricks, Nose manuals, hops, hop 180s,360s, footjam pogos, jam whips g turns ect. the front of the bike is durable, but the insides, not so much. I havent had any problems with the frame forks or handlebars. The pedals were broken within a month of riding. If i were to recommend it, i would say get the bike for your first 1-3 months of bmx. as you get more advanced, it'll start not holding up. Today, i snapped a link on my chain and all i did was hop over a 14 inch stack of wood twice!

    “Great Beginner bike”

    The Good:

    very light, I took my breaks and misc off that most people do and my bike was only 24 pounds. Seems pretty sturdy.

    The Bad:

    no gyro, I have heard bad things about Mechanik parts but I have never had any trouble with them.

    Overall Review:

    I do 360's, footjam tailwhips, 180's, G turns, ect, and haven't had any trouble out of the forks and such so I would reccomend this bike to a beginner level rider.
