Pros

  • Stylish

Cons

  • cheap components

Best Uses

  • urban biking / commuting

Comments:

purchased this for daily commuting and city urban adventure riding. steel is real! solid steel frame and fork absorbs much road vibration. i replaced the wheelset, crankset, bottom bracket and brakes with quality manufacturers. be reasonable people, you cannot buy a quality bike for $300. know what you are buying!!! I purchased this bike mainly for the frame due to the purpose I was using it for. I already knew I had to replace the components. the positioning is perfect for city bike riding & fenders can be added as well. the bike in stock form is perfect for someone who wants to be introduced to urban/city bike riding.

Cheap bike, used as an alternative to public transportation travel. Biked an hour to and from work each day (approx 11 miles each way) for about 6 months, little to no wear and tear noticeable. This bike has done me well!

I purchased this bike because I could no longer afford to put gas in my tank. It is perfect to get around town. Im not a fan of the coaster hub (pedal backwards to brake), but I fixed that. At [...], this is a steal.

Comments:

The frame will not clear for bar spins, bottom bracket is too low, fork snapped, ended up replacing the rims, bars are too long, it is responsive though, and its bad geometry. I would NOT recommend this bike. Th fork snapped while i was making a relatively sharp turn at about 15mph and sent my face to the concrete. I bought it because it appeared to be barspinable, which its not, I ended up buying a 650c front rim then the pedals hit the ground and broke, so after that i had to but a new bottom bracket, new cranks and pedals. I am happy with it now but I already put around $300 in it. When replaced the forks I purchased straight threadless forks, and am much happier with the headset and stem now.
