“A bad bike do not reccomend”

The Good: Solid, light

The Bad: even though it chromoly, its thin chromoly. breaks and bends easily. Fork dropout bend, Bars bend, rear rim bent, Spokes bent, Stem is crap and it slips, grips slip and suck, pedals wore out the first week, the whole break system is a piece of crap, the crank bent, the sit is uncomfortable, and the pegs that come with it are super heavy and hard on your wrist.

Overall Review: its a good bike for beginners who dont really do tricks. it is not for people who fall alot (breaks alot). Definitaly not for trail riding. Its a piece of crap. But you know, for its price i guess its alright.

“Great mid skill level bike”

The Good: Color schemes, frame, most parts. Light.

The Bad: Stem cant hold bars, but nothing a little thread-lock won't fix temporarily if you can't afford a good stem.

Overall Review: Great overall bike for a great overall price!

“Friggin good bike”

The Good: Its solid, the frames chromoly, everythings sealed,

The Bad: crappy brakes that streaked my rim (took them off), crapy front axle ( i broke the stock one and then i got another hollow one and bent it) small bars and frame (im 5'9") hard seat, 65 psi tires, non removable break mounts, crappy forks that i bent.

Overall Review: i love this bike now that i upgraded some parts. I recommend it

“decent beginner to advanced bike”

The Good: it's a pretty solid bike,had it for almost a year and everything is good,everything is sealed, it's a mission back hub and it rolls and sounds real nice. a year later still rolling nice as the first day i got it and i also have a profile back hub so i know what a good hub is.

The Bad: depends how stronge u are bcus it's a little on the heavy side but for me it wasnt an issue, especially when u throw the pegs on. then it weighs about 27 lbs. yea only thing that i can complain about is out the box the stem was crap.slipped on my first bunny hop or jump. but thats it. just the stem problem

Overall Review: great bike lasted me a year no issues i ride street hard all day and i ride almost everyday for hours.so to sum it all up great bike for the money cant find anything better and it's all sealed what else do u expect for $400. cant expect to get anything better for the price.

“BEST BIKE EVER”

The Good: light, very sturdy, great parts other than the stem. its defenitly purchasable.

The Bad: The stem bolts are rubbish. they strip out in an instant...but thats not kinks fault its mission components,

Overall Review: if your looking for a six to seven hundred dollar bike get this one its amazing and everything on it is solid except like i said the stem
