    “Great bang for your buck!”

    The Good:

    Light frame makes it easy to handle Low cost Looks Great Solid construction

    The Bad:

    Low end parts mechanical brakes (just my opinion)

    Overall Review:

    This bike is great for its cost. Not the best bike money can buy but its a great place to start with plenty of room for upgrades and customizing. Although the parts are low end, it is still a solid bike and will do just about everything you need it to. MSRP is $765 but I picked mine up for $600 so just keep your eyes open. Great fun bike.
