The Good: Lasted me a long time, good low park and trails frame. Comes with great stem, headset, grips, pedals, seat, sprocket, frame, front wheel and tires. The Oddy lever and Eclat brakes are a great value as well, will definitely have those for some time to come and put them on other frames down the road.
The Bad: Back wheel bearing blew up on me in just a few months. Could be my fault though because I didn't check if the locknut stayed tight, so thats prolly my bad, lesson learned. The cranks are not the best, but they will do till you break them or get new ones, I broke the spindle bolt, but again, it could of been rider error... MAKE SURE BOLTS AND NUTS ARE TIGHTENED. I can do without the bars, forks, rear wheel and cranks.
I had this bike since late winter/early spring of 2010. One by one, I replaced my parts for new ones and all I have left is the frame now. The frame finally gave way on me and is slightly bent on the chainstays, thats what you get for letting other people ride your bike... it wouldn't of happened if I was riding it. However, the bars did bend on me when I crashed in to a bank, but any bar will do that. I had Fly Montana 2 bars that bent the first day I got them.
Anyway, its a overall great bike and I give it 5 stars out of five. Its a bike that will get you started and will take what you dish out. It really is a tough bike, over time any part will bend or break so you just have to expect that. The parts that bended and broke on me, did so within reasonable time so thats why I highly recommend this bike and rate it 5 stars.
