    Overall Review:

    Bought this bike earlier this spring. I ride maybe 2-3 times a week and I have broken the stock forks, along with a set of stock Eastern forks. Both in the steer tube. Also, both seat stays are cracked around the seat tube and I have another crack on the chain stay right behind the sprocket. Good bike for the price, but not a superb street machine.
