      Im with cody,I have the old yx8500.Iv'e had it 3 years,it needed a sprocket upgrade,and the rearshock works good scince I drilled and tapped the end and put some greese in.My brother liked it and bought one to.I have bent a few axels,but the frame is still perfect with no play in the swingarm pivot.I weigh 280lbs.Even though its perfect i'm going today to get a mongoose xr1100 at wallmart because it has more suspension,And its on clearence for 370.00.I haven't found any info on it.

        Dude, I wouldnt waste my time buying any bike from wal mart. They arent worth it. the mongooses are made by brunswick, which is the same company that makes roadmaster, and we all know how crappy THEY are! If you want a good cheap bike, pacifics are the way to go.

            gee, rem.788...i have been reading the things you are tapping out about the pacific brand cycle...you really have a hard on for them, don't you? Why don't you take your bike shop bike and go ride...get out from in front of your computer...and go away...geez, you give anal retentive a new meaning...get over yourself...Let me tell you , i have been riding bike since i was 4 years old...my first was the Evel Kenevil huffy....i have had dyno's, gt's, royce union, old brand mongoose(from their hey day, like 13 years ago)...i liked the 'goose the best...but they all rode well...I have been looking at getting a new MTB, i looked at a new giant hardtail with front shocks...the price was about 395.00...not bad, for a steel alloy anchor...I also looked at a pacific....for 230.00 i can get this bike with an allum. frame(with a LIFETIME warranty...i bust it , they give me a new one...no ?? asked) the giant...well there will be a few fees involved....The guy at the bike shop...didn't even want me to take it out onto the parking lot for a quick spin, without talking end price...and wanting to know how do i wanna' pay for it??? give me a break...Yea, hot shot, i went to toys r us...the dept head over the bikes was very knowledgeable about the product he sold...let me tour the shop area where he builds the bikes...even let me take my potencial bike out for a run to get a feel of it....no questions asked..."bring it to me when you are done." was all he said...it rode well...was lighter than the giant...by weight and cost...and i got less pressure and more knowledge from toys r us than from the bike shop.......oh, by the way rem.788...i have never seen a walmart carry a pacific...they carry that companies other brand...mongoose and roadmaster...conflict of interest to sell to many brands at the same place...get off your high horse and go ride your bike.....oh and one more thing...i bought my 5 year old a Next brand dirt bike...he loves it, and that is all that matters.....quit giving everyone your negative opinions about things you don't have true knowledge of.......what kind of 34 year old give crap to kids about their pride and joy....GROW UP

              OK! I am going to respond to you here as well. Yuo do not live here where I am, hence you do not see what is in any Wal-Mart or anywhere else for that matter. I ride EVERY DAY, I put more miles in the dirt than a "weekend warrior". I could care less what you have rode or how long. Have you ever raced? Have you raced for a team? If not then drop your pathetic little ignorant rant!
              If you do no tlike reading what I post I have two suggestions.
              1. STOP READING THEM
              2. COME ON DOWN AND STOP ME BIG BOY!
              Instead of typing all this absurd and ignorant rants, why not take your own advice SHUT UP AND RIDE!
              Why you are at it go and slap your grade school teachers for not teaching you good grammar. If you still want to run your mouth then come on down. You can do one of two things. Bring your piece of crap bike and follow me, or back up your big mouth, you decide. I am tired of wimps like you who hide behind their computer. Either put up or shut up!

                Hey , why do you down what you don;t know about ,just because you are a team rider does ;nt mean a thing , does that make you an expert ?. If so why does Pacific sell more bikes than any other brand... Just because they do not cost $xxxx does;nt mean they are junk, s, and if you are really a serious rider why do you need to to make a statement like the one above
