Overall Review:

I only recommend this bike to young kids (12 and below), beginners, and people that don't do tricks. I bought this bike because I was looking for a cheap bike to start BMX. The bike is great for its price and is very light. At the time, I was able to hop up 3 stairs, wheelie, 180, and fakie with the bike. After about 4 months the bike started breaking down. The fork, axle, bearings, brakes, cranks, and sprocket broke. Even though the bike is completely destroyed, I do not regret buying it because it is very inexpensive.
