Excellent Complete Bike

Rating:
The Good:

All the good that you already know by reading the specs. Built tough.

The Bad:

- Rear Dropouts are 14mm, but the female hub bolt is 3/8ths. With no spacer/collar (Empire BMX sells "Axle adapters") the rear wheel has a lot of shake and movement to it, especially if you ride four pegs. Once I put the Kink Driver Hub Guard on, it was difficult to get the wheel to sit straight. It was always pulling to the left. - Fork length is tight, making Toe-jams sketchy

Overall Review:

This bike is light and clean out of the box. You can put it together and go ride it without the addition of any extra parts. It handles like a dream and it is built tough.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
