Nice bike friend used to have one...quite beefy by todays standards but good geometry,long considering he's such a short bloke

Would love to find an old Challenger that Bennett used to run circa 1996 for trails :D

The Bennett was a nice frame, mate used to abuse his and it took it in it's stride.

TBH I don't have a great deal of faith in BMX products these days...companies really seem to be pushing the envelope to get things light as that's what the kids are after more and more at the moment. TBH I'd rather not have my headtube come off!

Does anybody remember the old King frames, especially the Liberty that Jerry Galley used to ride.,?...now that was one strong frame!
