Tank = Broken parts all over the place.

Alot of people have broken them in like 3 days, some broke freewheels in thier first day.....man, quality control issues, or just crap, LOL. Prolly the latter of the two, LOL.

I would avoid it, people complain about broken forks, frames, freewheels, cranks, pedals, hubs....damn...that's like all the important parts. And all these people were just learning, not even going big....

you could get the piece of shit tank for $200, or invest in my echo es4r frame for $175 and build it up with some nice parts and actually have yourself a trials bike that will last.

What happens exactly?

All bikes are broken in all cases is a generalisation.

It would be mor worth to know details like how wight was the rider, what has he done exact and which part was broken.

Possibly the bike is usefull for childs < 11 to start with trial.

The brisa responsibles must have any idear about this product. I gues they must give some waranty, or not?

All I have heard about tanks is they fall apart. I've never read anything good about them...I guess they suck? :rolleyes:

In all cases, it was a guy named 'Bob' who works as a truck driver, that broke the frame.

I don't like to see an < 11 years old kid get hurt. I'm care for 30 of them in a german trial club. I would not give them a real battle proved bike.

But in our german news group in cases like this, the people posts pictures from the broken parts. Wether if it is a frame, a chain or anything else.

I read the thread pointed by rush. I agree with the opinion from the first entry. But there is not only one real case in the whole thread. Allways I heard from anybody.

This frame is from brisa. And brisa is not a unknown incompetent manufacturer or dealer in this field like univega and others. Thats why I'm wonder and why Im asking.

Making big noice and yell around is not so helpfull as beeing accurate.
