Good bike mainly for beginner riders

Rating:
The Good:

No parts have broken or got messed up except for the stem.

The Bad:

Weak stem, not the best brake system, no gussets anywhere on the frame.

Overall Review:

I bought this bike about a year ago in 2013 and started immediately changing out parts. I didn't like the brakes at all. I tried every way possible to get a stronger pull in response, but to no avail. I tried new pads, adjusting cables, but nothing worked. These are the Mission Halt brakes, but they don't bring you to a halt at all. Next, the stem. The Mission Converge stem kept slipping on me until one day I made them as tight as they could possibly be. They slipped once until this review about a month ago. Finally, there are NO gussets to provide the extra weld strength, which is a bummer because I love the dimensions of the frame. Today this bike Read More »

Today this bike in far from stock with almost a completely new setup except the frame. Thanks for reading!

Kink whip 2013

Rating:
The Good:

Cheep durable decent

The Bad:

some stock mission kinda heavy might be weighted weird for your preference

Overall Review:

Ive had this bike for about a year and I can honestly say its near perfect for beginers. All the parts are kinda cheep but there perfectly durable for beginers. Once the bike starts going through higher drops and harder hits the stock parts might start to fail. The bike is kinda weighted front heavy. It might feel weird to most riders but its all personal preference. The frame is very durable. Overall a decent bike and a really good bike for beginers.
