I've been riding for over a decade now, and I've never heard of that company.

They're a trusted mountain bike manufacturer, with some nice full-suspension ones, but I didn't know they did BMX bikes.

They are clueless about bmx though:
https://www.jamisbikes.com/bikes/05_lurch2.html

Not 100% chromoly, stupid gussets that a properly designed frame wouldn't need, what is UP with the rake on the fork? Oversized dropouts are 2 years out of date. Crappy aluminum rims - they aren't even BLACK, let alone chrome plated. 44/16 gearing... well, I guess if the bike came from WalMart.

I think the most redeeming thing about the bike is the longer top tube. Dumb luck instead of brains at use I think.

Really, I hope you enjoy it and it really isn't garbage, but others should be aware that there are much better bikes out there for the money.
