this bike was just begging me to ride it when i first laid eyes on it. becuase there weren't many good thorough reviews about this bike, i was a bit skeptical. though i must say, that so far this bike rides like a charm.
PROS:though the package was small for this bike, it was packaged well and neatly. the suspensions really works and it gave me a smooth ride on rough terrain. the craftsmanship on the bike is good; i don't see any sloppy work on it and the yellow/black paint really makes this bike special! the bike comes partially preassembled with everything except the front wheel, the saddle(seat#, paddles, and the handle bars. the brakes works flawlessly. just a fun bike to ride!
CONS: the only problems i had with the bike #not the bikes fault# was that the bikes' frame is just a bit too big for me #i'm 5'8" 200lb## but it's not enough for me to return it for a refund; it's manageable# this bike also took me 2 hours to assemble, but that was because i'm a novice when it comes to bikes# if you know what you're doing, it should take you less than 20 minutes to get it assembled# even after it's all assembled, i highly reccommend having the bike fine tuned at your local bike shop# professionals can adjust everything to perfection so that everything runs smoothly #such as your shifting gear## another thing too, dual/full suspension bikes are not good nor are they meant for uphills# paddling up will wear you out so avoid uphills when possible#
VERDICT: money well spent! this bike is a MUST HAVE for those who are on a budget, though i prefer you to NOT get this bike because i want to be unique =P the bike is sturdy and i think it'll last a very long time if you constantly maintenaince it# even though there are a few cheap parts, you have to consider that this is a budget bike# the good thing is, you can upgrade those cheap parts when you have the money# i hope this review was helpful =)
