it is a pretty good bike. the frame is wide and not that heavy, which is a little weird to me, you will get used to it. the bars are a little wide, and i would like to have a little more stopping power in the back. hayes discs

well, its a one peice crank, and those arent as strong as a 3 peice set... one peice cranks are also harder to work on.

I know you said dirt but if you are planning on doing any grinding you might want a new sprocket ...thats common sense for a sprocket grind but doing feebles theres usually a chance of slipping up and bangin your sprocket
