Great for beginners on a budget!

Rating:
The Good:

Price. Weight. Sturdiness. Looks cool. Rides exceptionally well for an entry level bike. The bars are high and wide enough for a six foot two inch tall rider. Chain tensioner is dope! Double wall rear wheel and loud cassette hub. For a beginner on a budget, I could not ask for more. Around 400 euros when it was new. I got mine for 30 euros. It was ridden for a couple years by a 14 year old who lost interest. It then sat for a couple years until the father decided to sell it. All I had to do was replace the grips, give it a lube, and tighten her up.

The Bad:

The frame makes a strange whistling sound in the wind. My foot sometimes clips the rear peg and pulls off my shoe, but this would happen on any bike with a similar length chainstay. The seat is like sitting on a block of wood, but since I have it slammed I don't sit much at 6'2".The orange pedals eventually bleach out to a flamingo pink, but will likely be replaced before this happens if you ride hard.

Overall Review:

I've had this bike for a month now and I love it. I bought it used. It's 2018 now so the bike is 5 or 6 years old. It rides fine. Appears that a kid who didn't ride too hard owned it before me. It was taken care of fairly well, but had spent some time outside as evinced my the minor rust in a few places. Listing new at around 400 euros, it's a low to mid priced complete. Of course the "German Engineering" factor cannot be ignored. They give you the most bike for the money. I've seen a video where a Bro broke the top tube welds doing big airs at a park, I think, but I am not yet at that skill level.
I am a couple months sort of my 46th birthday. I rode BMX until I was 14 when my bike was stolen. I then rode skateboards for the next 30 years, but caught the bug again now that I have a 4 year

This bike will allow me to master the basic fundamental tricks such as hops, manuals, fakie, 180s, and airing out. That's all I need. By the time I am ready for 360's I'll be looking to upgrade my set up piece by piece.
If you can get one used for under 100, do it! If you are looking for an inexpensive complete to get started, KHE might have what you need.
