The bike comes partially assembled, and though I was able to assemble it the rest of the way without an issue, I ended up taking it to my lbs to do the final tune and throw slime tubes in the tires so as to avoid flats (living in NM, goatheads are prevalent). I also put a new seat on the bike, as the one that comes with it sucks. But to be fair, the seat that came on my $4k Gary Fisher mountain bike sucked too. Bike manufacturers almost never give you a good seat. So, after taking it to my lbs for the final tune and buying the seat, I'm in $600. I would say that for what you get, this bike is comparable to a lot of bikes that are in the $700-900 range (and you'll still have to put a new seat on those as well), so it's a decent little deal. It's a very nice looking bike, with the logo very understated. The bike is very fast, very smooth to ride.
The wheels came relatively true, and my lbs said I needed to ride it for a while and then bring it back to get them trued.
One particular issue? The crank kinda sucks, and the large gear ring on my particular crank came bent. Not much, but you can see it, and it's just an example of the poor build quality of the crank. But to be fair, at this level, the crank you'll get on any bike is going to be basically crap. And even though the crank is bent, it's not bent enough that it really affects anything as far as the ride, and my lbs was able to dial things in so nothing rubs with relative ease.Read more ›
Things that should be thrown out before your first ride - The saddle is probably the most uncomfortable that ive ever sat in, but doubling up on my gel cycling shorts made it tolerable. Brakes suck, they stop, but you really have to squeeze'm. I didnt even look at the pedals, just thru them out and replace with some Shimano SPD clipless pedals off my old bike.
All in all, im VERY satisfied with this purchase. Great bike, great price. :D
