    “PROS and CONS”

    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
