I read all the reviews on this product before making the purchase, I knew to expect some of the components not to be of the quality I was looking for and was ready to upgrade them as they failed.
I ride my bikes up mountains and free ride back down, and always make sure to take on some of the more technical trails, so far only the threads on the stem shredded off, I replaces with a Q2 stem at $40. and next I will be upgrading the forks, they look good, but only 60MM travel and are not solid, they have survived some hard runs, steep declines, and caught a little air time, but this item needs to be replaces for my safety.
So far no other problems, great performance for the money, expect to replace some components, excellent frame geometry, performs good at high speeds down hill, make sure to adjust the tire pressure according to the train you ride in, the rims are holding better than I expected, if the bike gets muddy it clears up from the derailleurs after it picks up some speed and bumps in the road. The brakes are average, but they do work when you need them to.
The only thing I could not take off were the stickers, I tried the blow dryer with WD40, only the stickers on the rim come off, not the ones on the frame, I guess I have to paint over them.
This bike met more than my expectations, so far.....
