i own this bike, if u get the right shit, its mint. mine now is 24 pounds. havent had a problem yet and i have had the bike for about a year. it is a good bike FOR A BEGINNER. it seems like half these reviews are breaking the forks and bending them. i have not had a problem with the forks. if you little kids want a bike that can whithstand a f***ing ghost ride down a hill, get a sunday complete and get your ass kicked just like the rest of the kids in my town. lol
the bad, well the bad is that this information is incorrect. the bottom bracket is american and it IS NOT sealed. although, i sealed mine. and if you do not seal, the bottom bracket will eventually begin to make a creaking noise. re-greasing the bearings will only stall the noise. it always came back. the bike is a bit heavier in the back than in the front but if you get the right parts it evens out.
i love my bike and if you get the right things it is a perfect beginner bike. i have been riding for about a year now. i sealed my bottom bracket and got animal hyrone bars. which are about 1 pound which evens out the weight distribution in my bike. overall even though this is my first bmx bike i love mine and with the right parts, it is perfect.
