“Alright bike”

The Good:

Light, strong, nice colours, holds up well, pivotal seat and odyssey grips. Even though the rims are single wall, they arn't bad.

The Bad:

Hi-ten, non intergrated headset. Sprocket bent and stock tyres wear fast and puncture alot.

Overall Review:

Ive had this bike almost a year and only changed the bars (because they were too small) and sprocket because it bent after one 360.I replaced it with a salt plus manta sprocket and its been good ever since. Also the tyres wore down in about 2 weeks and got a couple of punctures, so i changed them and the bike has beenperfect.I may get a mongoose chamber 2012 as im getting too good for the culture. I would recommend this for beginners to intermediate riders as It's very light andextremely good value forthe bike as i got it for 200.
