Bad dont get it

Rating:
The Good:

It's affordable

The Bad:

The forks bend in about3 months the bottom brackets are crap the grips don't ever get soft pedals r medal cranks loosen every 5 min the hubs loosen every day

Overall Review:

I wouldn't get it.if u r really set on it have it only as a begginer bike but when u move to tricks even slightly hard like 360 get a new bike or ur only other option is to build it up slowly so eventually the bike is actually good so if u want a bike without spending 400$... Tough shit!! U will have to put so much work into it and replace so many parts u will propably spend way over 400$ anyway so just get more money to buy a bike that's good

Not recomended

Rating:
The Good:

The pedals are metal which are pretty good

The Bad:

Chain sucks just like the handle bars and the grips

Overall Review:

I would not even consider this a good bmx. It is for beginners. Or a simple ten year old. My friend has this bike and it is horrible. The chain has started to rust in less then a year and the handle bars are horrific. Simply this bike is for a ten year old. The grips slide off easily! The stem russets in less then 6 months. This bike is not recomended

Decent bike

Rating:
The Good:

Frame Forks Seat Clamp

The Bad:

I bought a frame fork and seatclamp combo all are great!

Overall Review:

I got a frame, fork, and seat clamp combo off of ebay for 20$. Whatta deal! To the people who are complaining about breaking this frame, yours must have been messed up, I do 8 sets all the time. This is my spare bike but its still decent. Its still hi-ten steel sh*t, but I'd say its pretty strong. the forks are decent, but i bent the right dropout when i got pissed and aaron rossed (lol) my bike. I later beat the shit out of it with a hammer and fixed it tho and has been fine eversince. the seatclamp is a seatclamp its hard to f*ck up a seatclamp, it works fine and looks cool.

From the parts I got, I'd have to rate it a 5.

An OK Bike

Rating:
The Good:

it holds up well, the wheels are good, the grips last a while, its not too heavy.

The Bad:

the seat is plastic and not pivitol, You hear a loud clank noise coming from the cranks idk what thats about. the tires pop easily. The grips do not feel good.

Overall Review:

So i bought this bike about 3 months ago and its holding pretty well. I changed the pedals to animal hamilton pc pedals i didnt have to the pedals were just a bit small for my feet. The grips are pretty grippy not the best grips but they last. So overall this bike is ok for beginners if youre a hard rider then this bike will break easily.
