Crash & Learn
Like: 24 gear ratio.
Modified(didn't like): Tires, Pedals, Handlebars, Seat.
Unconvinced: V - Brakes.
#1 concern: Gooseneck/Suspension Fork combination - The Stem Bolt (located on the top of the section of the gooseneck that rises vertically from the frame) is arguably not capable of withstanding the pressure that it must to maintain the perpendicular relationship between the handlebars and the front wheel.
In the event that a rider is traveling downhill and turning under brakes, stem bolt failure will see the handle bars and front wheel adopt a parallel relationship, most noticeable by the front wheel direction being side-on to the direction of travel. You may notice this as you are concurrently being catapulted over the handlebars or if you manage to retain consciousness, when you return to the bike and find that a quick "Nothing Happened Here" get away is awkward.
Several brake failure since May 2014. Last one happen in busy fast moving traffic, came very close to rear ending a car by millimetres. Wheels are only single wall and do not take much to buckle. I when down a gutter last week broke 3 spokes and badly buckled destroyed the rear wheel. Tyers had to be replaced after only 3 months. I have had to also replace the rear derailure. Seat is very uncomfortable. Pedals have cracked and been replaced. Front forks vibrate severly under braking. I have stopped riding this bike because it is a death trap. Should have brought from my local bike shop, I have now spent enough in repairs.
Looks goods and cheap.
Made cheap and dangerous component failure.
This is perfect! Can't live without it.
This bike is fantastic. All parts are working well, with nothing broken at all. Had this bike for more than 2 years and still in great condition. I don't regret buying this one bit. This bike is great for outdoor purposes and I recommend this bike for ages 13+. This bike climbs so well, it may even be better than a Giant defty 3 Road Bike ($800). This bike is also cheap for it's price ($198).
Everything about it. Reliable bike, great price with lifetime warranty.
