24" cruser question...

i reacently purchased a 24" Haro backtrail 24X. its a 2002 nyquist model. what do you all think of this bike? my initial opinion is that it needs a diet-its a little heavy. the crank arms alone wiegh a ton, but are unbendable im sure. i just want anybody who has an opinion to chime in with info; good, bad, or ugly. thank you - i appreciate it.

pure curiousity ... why'd u get a cruiser... unless ur hella tall...but then a 21 fits fine...i am 6'2" and well.... i gota 21 and it fits i dunno its heavy cuz its a lower model ... they dont put as much into the frame as they would for what ever the top one is...heavy cranks = cheaper but strong.... expensive cranks = stong and light...sometimes. i guess if u like it u like it ... ive always kinda wanted to take a 24" dirt jumping...wouldnt buy one for it...but try.
