I've owned this bike for a few weeks and have mixed feelings about it, but mostly positive. I received mine in the box, which is the way I wanted. Pulled the parts from the box with no problems. the packaging was well done and secure.
The paint and parts look great. I had no problems putting it together with basic tools: adjustable wrench, allen wrench, and phillips screwdirver. The rims are slightly off true but nothing noticeable while riding. The brakes are solid and not spongy at all but remember to adjust the brake pads to properly contact the rim on front and back. The ride is smooth comfortable. I don't hear any vibrations or noises while riding over bumpy roads except for the chain guard occasionally. I just put a piece of Velcro above the chain to deaden the sound, quick fix. Also, one of the peddles was clicking. Found out the peddle spindle was slightly bent but not un-rideable just annoying.
So now that I'm happy with what I have directly from the store. Here's what I did. Replaced the peddles with larger ones, took off the chaingaurd, removed the sprocket guard, changed the handlbars and stem with a lighter set, and replaced the fat tires with small road bike tires, makes a big difference in speed. I also striped the decals off to give it a clean look, use Goo-Off to get the sticky residue off the frame. With my changes made I really love riding this bike around town. Now it's a clean lean riding machine.
