    “Dorado Complete.”

    The Good:

    I got it for 300$ as a X-mas sale. Full chromo everything , sealed everything , dope build. Frame is like a custom one. Decent parts even though Amber/Ezra are kind of budget parts. I mean for 300$ you can't go wrong. Most parts lasted awhile , frame, bars , seat and front wheel I'm still running !

    The Bad:

    It's actually like 700$ now and they don't even make this model anymore LOL. The stem is pretty garbage ; slipped and stripped all the time. I even BENT it. Rode my headset loose because I didnt know how to maintain a bike then , and my steerer tube ovalized. The back wheel was good but I ran my chain TIGHT and it blew the bearings .

    Overall Review:

    I got a great deal. I wouldn't mind another Amber complete . It lasted a fair bit of abuse and half the parts I still have and are fine. The deal I got was soooo good it was stupid. I'd get it , if you can find one. but at 700$ you can pick up a whole complete for around 400$ more. So a fair bit but fully custom so take that in mind.
