“Fable, a good story for the price”

The Good: This bike looks good and it rides pretty good too. I haven't rode a bmx bike in 15 years and I was really wanting something I could get to ride around for fun . So far the Fable has fit the bill. Almost all the components seem to be good quality nothing has broken or blown out yet . I had to upgrade the seat and post ( I like riding high )

The Bad: The pedals could use an upgrade, I am 6ft 350lbs and I feel like I'm going to break them . The handlebars were a bit of a nagging issue .The rough section on the bars where the stem is supposed to grip was really coated with paint . It took a few tries to get the stem to grip the bars hard . But besides that I haven't had any problems

Overall Review:

I think this bike is the best in its price bracket.
