    “Great bike and rides excellent.”

    The Good:

    Light, looks great, rides good.

    The Bad:

    Brakes, rust

    Overall Review:

    So far it is doing great! I bought it used and it had barely been ridden. I have done a lot of beginner/intermediate concrete park and some light street riding.

I get a lot of good feedback on the look of the bike with the flat black and gold wheels. I was a little worried about the Eastern parts due to some reviews online but everything is holding up very well and I ride several times a week. Not to mention I am fairly heavy and have crashed plenty.

    The brakes did not perform well at all. I am getting light rust on the bolts for the pedals and bolts on the crank arms but I carry it with me daily in my truck and it has seen some rain.
