Full chromoly, sealed hubs, 48 spline cranks, for only $735??? Think it'd be a good bike? I was looking at the United KL40 Pro but I think this is better!

Most bikes you buy for $735 will automatically have full chromoly, sealed hubs, and 48 spline cranks. Look at the smaller things. I ride Colony parts and had United and both are good. Mind you, most Colony part on completes are REPLICA'S. So you're not getting the actual part, just identical ones.

You can pretty much have the same stuff a part of 48 spline for like 400-500 bucks.
But yeah that's a pretty dope bike.

Well if they're identical why does it matter? They'd be the same quality right?

the replicas are machined quicker, made faster. less time = less $$$ so they can make em cheap

Idk it seems alright to me. You're from Canada, a custom would be expensive. But if you got. The cash …… why not. But the colony is pretty dope.

Why does it have the standard KMC chain? Shouldn't it at least have something better than that for 700?

According to his logic if you buy a 1000 dollar complete you should get a gold plated chain.

That bike was 3 tubes of chromoly depending on the year, came with forged cranks and a bunch of junk looseball parts.

A buddy of mine had one, hi-tensile steel for almost everything on it.

Actually, the completes now are lighter and stocked with better parts than they used to be. Older bikes lasted so long because of how much material was used, ultimately making them heavier. A seven pound frame is unnecessary.

I'm just saying, it would make sense that they would put a higher quality chain.

If all the chains are the same, why would anyone have reviews on chains? I'm just trying to learn here.
