    “Worst bike I owned”

    The Good:

    Not a walmart bike, cheap, frame is still good after 3 years

    The Bad:

    Hi ten steel, heavy (it is a racing bike), not attractive (down tube is big), rims are single walled and back rim bent on me. worst bike owned, have had a walmart mongoose.

    Overall Review:

    Okay for cruising around your town, dont take it on too big of jumps.

    “It's okay...”

    The Good:

    It is a pretty comfy ride and it isn't too heavy.

    The Bad:

    Probably not good for hard riding, steel frame, 1-piece cranks, etc.

    Overall Review:

    My pal got it for 50$ at a used sporting goods store, and I think he pick up a great cruising bike for a killer deal. I'd pay 100$ max for a bike like this and transform it into a custom as parts gradually broke.. Ran it brakeless, pretty fun ride.

    “This bike sucks”

    The Good:

    I dont really like anything on this bike.

    The Bad:

    Bars, frame, rims, tire, grips, and everything else. the 1 piece crank bend and came loose within a month

    Overall Review:

    Before this bike i had a Next, walmart bike and it was better than this. This bike is what i started trying tricks on so im used to it but everything is bent. I'm getting a We The People Crysis 2010 this week.
