The Good: Frame, Forks, Handlebars, Cranks, Sprocket

The Bad: Hubs, Rims, Spokes, Stem

Overall Review:

The bike is 100% Chromoly, and considering that its a great deal. What Kink basically did was give you a great frame and great handlebars and forks that you could build off of, but to keep the price low they made they rest of the bike kinda cheap. As long as you aren't chucking your bike around when you get mad, it'll hold up, but you need to be willing to spend money on new parts if you're a serious rider. A lot of people say the stem sucks, but as long as you tighten it enough, you'll be OK, although you'll still need a new one eventually. The hubs are sealed, but they aren't the greatest (especially the front one) and the spokes are PATHETIC (but they wont bend too bad unless you repeatedly land flat on them). The bike doesn't have any cable guides, but it does have a caliper brake mount for in the back. When you order the bike, it should come with a caliper brake, since they have to provide one due to legal issues, but PLEASE NOTE that the actual brake doesn't fit! The lever and brake cable are fine, but the actual brake is really heavy and does not even fit close enough to the tire! The best thing to do if you want to ride with brakes would be to buy a 990 brake plate, which will allow you to instal U-Brakes. Overall, the bike is pretty good, and it's a great choice if you want a complete that you can build off of.
