Overall a great starter bike, but not perfect.

The Good:

This bike never intended on being a beginners bike, it's retail price is steep, but now that the price has dropped, I managed to purchase this bike for 300 bucks. The cassete hub is really loud and all around the bearings handle abuse quite well. The tires are nice, but wear pretty quickly. My crankset and sprocket were done up really tight, and feel good. I got a weird bike though, no pegs, and instead of the components pictured above I got super soft blue grips (longnecks with aftermarket bar ends) and incredible pedals in baby blue. The bike was light and responsive, and the 20.6 inch top tube fitted me (at 5 foot 8) very well, but as I'll go into later, it wasn't perfect. The rims also look nice, however they are quite weak.

The Bad:

The front rim is useless! It's a single walled Alienation PBR, and it really is not strong enough for what it has to do, I buckled it only one week while attempting to learn a full-cab. The rear rim is a bit better, but I still think an upgrade is needed. The detangler was hard to set up, and makes the brakes hard to operate at times. After virtually 2 days, I damaged the brake lever, and the brakes don't really work anymore, they just loosened up, and I'll have to adjust them again soon. In addition, the bars are too wide for the top tube length, and make barspins really awkward. The seat also hurts parts that I rather wouldn't hurt, probably not a problem for most, but I have a weak core, so I'll often sit down. I had to replace it with the seat from my first "BMX" a Raleigh Burner 20 Streetstyle to avoid further... erm injury.

Overall Review:

All in all, a good beginners bike, just avoid if you are new to the geometry of a bmx bike, as it is very low and very uncomfortable to ride on the seat. For an utter novice, I'd recommend a Haro 300.2. I'd definitely recommend if you like Daniel Dhers though, as this is his signature bike.
