    “Alright bike”

    The Good:

    It's great for those who want an affordable bike to mess around on. Great for dirt riding and lightweight.

    The Bad:

    Not very durable or dependable, would not recommend for experienced riders. Front tire barrings aren't sealed, grips tear very easily, seat is not pivot and is very cheap. Bars are not dependable! Bottom bracket also not very dependable. Break cable is weak, snapped 2nd month of riding.

    Overall Review:

    I owned the bike for 4 month and the first week I needed new grips be cause mine tore apart,l. The 3rd week I had to put a new front wheel due to the grease leaking out and not tightening. DO NOT JUMP DOWN STAIR SETS WITH THIS BIKE!! The first moth I owned the bike I jumped down a 7 stair set and cracked my bars on the right weld, got lucky they didn't snap. Also the bottom bracket got jacked up after doing a flat 180. I landed smooth but once I got back to pedaling I can heard and feel a cracking and popping in the crank. DO NOT USE FOR STREET OR GRINDING! My rear non drive side of the frame is pitching so I can't get my rear wheel out unless I use a Read More »

DO NOT USE FOR STREET OR GRINDING! My rear non drive side of the frame is pitching so I can't get my rear wheel out unless I use a rubber mallet to hit it out. Get for dirt riding strictly, not street or flatland. Aside the negatives it is very light weight and I put it through some beatings and it still holding up fairly well. The 3 piece crank is very easy to tighten and maintain. Here I stand 4 month in the bike, I now have new forks, bars, grips, and steam. Some stock parts aren't the best. Great for dirt riding and hitting a dirt track. But I do not recommend for any street
