    yeah the stickers are awful.

    i was leaving them on so that if you guys said the whole bike sucked so bad i shouldn't even bother, i was going to sell it.

    but if you guys think it's ridable, and it's not going to break in half, then i'll peel the stickers and ride it. i'll just upgrade stuff if it breaks. hopefully that's not soon.

    Ya, it seems like a good complete.

    Now you can start BMXing and not "urban mountian biking."

    sick game, but it's kind of corny with all the stickers on the bike.

    For a GTA bike, you almost expect it to come brakeless... (although it is illegal, but hey, so is stealing cars and killing cops)

    It's not illegal in canada. My local shop sells a few completes that come stock brakeless. I think as long as they have mounts, or a hole for a caliper then it's okay.

    Not in the great U.S. of A. You can buy frames without brake mounts, but you can not buy a frame unless it has atleast one brake.

    Better than what I started riding on. 3 piece cranks are good. Too bad they are unsealed. First thing I would change are those handlebars. Gross. But for free, it's great.

    The old Edwin frames had those holes in the seatstay (i want to say) bridge thing where you could throw on calipers...

    I dont think the new ones do...

    Will you hurt yourself. Yes. If you ride hard and push yourself. If you're not pushing your limits you're not progressing. Nowt wrong with that. I have not progressed much in years. I'm too old for these 20" ers but I can't help myself.

    That bike is easyly better then a Poverty buck 99. I'd say you could get $150 - $200 for it. But it's not bad, I'd just keep it.
