i changed my chain from a normal mtb chain to this BMX chain. The length is the same, which was surprising. I've had my MTB chain for about a year now, it was making squeky noises, so i thought that it needed a change.
I recommend this product!
I like:value for money, easy to fit yourself, strong

They fitted my ShockWave. it also fits ShockWave, Apollo and X-rated Bikes. My origanal pads had been through a lot. I bought these pads to replace my old ones and i basically started where i left off. There wasn't a major differnce, i guess it just got rid of all the dirt in my old pads.
No, I do not recommend this product.
I like:cheap, fit most halfords products.
I don't like as much:hard to fit yourself

putting this on my hardtail was fine. Its strong (aluminium). It will survive jumps, e.g 200 table tops. its shape is good and allows you to ride with ease. i recommend also buying a decent alloy stem. This is avaliable from the halfords website. i guess what im trying to say is BUY IT!
I recommend this product!
I like:strong, worth while, strong - aluminium, great shape, has grip markings
I don't like as much:weighs more than my old ones.

its a good product and all but i'm now starting to ask myself why i bought it. I know that the Headset Cover is designed for keeping dust and water out of the headset, but it attaches via velcro. This means it easily comes off. Although it has got a cool design
No, I do not recommend this product.
I like:very cheap, got a cool design
I don't like as much:velcro

Can a my 16yr old pick up the Bike? And Does it cost extra to have a longer axle fitted?

yes, your 16 year old can pick up the bike. Aslong as you order the axle and ring the store to make arrangements, they should do it for you.
