PROS and CONS

Rating:
The Good:

comfortable ride, looks pretty good, smooth gear shifting, great tyres

The Bad:

the fork and rear suspension makes undesirable sounds, heavy, rear suspension rebound adjust feels dodgy when adjusting.

Overall Review:

OVERALL, an OKAY bike, but if you had $2.5K buy another bike with less cons
