ordered the bike online and walmart delivered on time, and packaging was good, no damage or scratches on the bike. i got the mongoose beast and hitch already, and weightwise, this dolomite is the heaviest. same frame shape as the beast but with the added disc brakes and gears. the hitch is lighter coz of tapered fork shape and drilled out rims. but because of the 7 speed shimano drivetrain, with twist shifters, this bike rides light and could easily take some uphill trails. its still got steel frames so definitely heavier than more expensive aluminum fat bikes. what sets this bike apart is its iconic color, when you see this bike at the trail from a distance, dark blue body and red rims, you'll know its a dolomite. both front and rear disc brakes work great after proper alignments and adjustments. worth to note, the tires on this new batch of dolomites are the same as the ones on the hitch, which feature larger knobs. and still, i would not recommend for use on very rough mountain terrain as the hubs may not absorb the abuse. light off road and sand it could take easily. i take it to mostly limestone trails here in IL. the bike has a solid ride feel to it, and as usual, with TLC (good maintenance), dolomite is goin to give you years of riding fun. so just enjoy and ride safely guys.
