My 6 y/o picked put this bike and I was weary... I was proved wrong quickly though! He puts a lot of stress on bicycles with ramps and bmx riding. This is not just an eye catcher, but rides very good and doesn't slow him at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by egonz0313 The perfect gift for my teen
Somewhat shocked when my 13 year old daughter chose this style of bike, however, after she took it around the store for a test drive and after seeing that big smile on her face, how could I not purchase it? She rides it practically everyday around the neighborhood, breaking for runners, walkers, dogs, and cars all while enjoying a comfortable ride. It's stylish and manageable, a good product and the perfect gift for my teen. Thanks to the store clerks for all their help and also for allowing us to ride the bike around the store. That really made a difference!

This bike is perfect the dirt jumps course to the race track. The only problem is that if you take a hard impact the handle bars move.

Rated 4 out of 5 by that kid who causes chaos Great for dirt jumping, decent for street riding
I have to say that i judged this thing pretty harsh, since the first BMX bike i rode was a pro bike. But for the price, this thing is awesome.
Im 15 and needed a bike for exercising, and i sorta wanted to get back into BMX- wouldn't get on a bike if it couldn't handle anything "fun" :). Anyways, the frame of the bike is a bit heavy, making street tricks harder, but it's really durable for offroad and dirt jumping. i took it dirt jumping and offroading right off the bat, and the bike's performance was awesome. The handlebars, however, would keep rotating forward after every hard impact i took- i don't know if this was because of my size, since apparently the bike is meant for smaller/younger kids (i think the size guidelines they have are for all types of bikes, since 20-inch BMX bikes like this one are fine for adults) or i may have just not tightened the handlebars enough. Either way, getting them back at the right angle was a pain. (GET A SET OF HEX KEYS, and repairs are easy).
Man, this thing can fly. Put a little strength in when peddling, and it's great for racing-stable, too. Although, one of my brake pads is rubbing up against the rim, but it's still an easy fix (but i suggest going and letting a pro fix brake issues, since one wrong move with those things and you've got yourself death on wheels).
Repairs on the bike are simple, since there aren't any gear mechanisms to mess with. Most all parts on the bike are adjusted by hex keys and phillips head screwdrivers, but i suggest getting that, a ratchet, and pliers (these are more for messing with the grind rails on the side of the wheels)- that's all i've seemed to need for the bike. Oh,and get an air pump, of course.
All in all, this is a great bike for beginners or anyone who wants more than the road as their riding area. I really should give it five stars, but i'm just critical like that. haha

Rated 2 out of 5 by MarkG Somewhat poor quality
The handle bars were tightened down as far as they would go and still moved. Had to take it back after one week for repairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jc22 Great Bike, Great Price
I got this bike for my son on sale for christmas. Very satisfied with the delivery time and assembly of the bike for free at Dick' Sporting. I have had bikes assembled at other stores and have problems with the brakes. They were very helpful with the ordering process and checkout. The only problem is this bike did not come with a kickstand, other than that this was a great buy overall.
