Great Bike, With little to none issues
January 18, 2017
I wanted to ride this bike for at least 2 months before writing my personal review and experience.
Well here it is:
So far the riding has been good, the bike is very light and response well both in concrete (local green line) and off road.
Love the hydrolic brakes! These work really good. Derailleur / Cassette / shifter is smooth and responsive; (after a $15 tune up at the bike shop).
The seat is somewhat uncomfortable, kind of expected in this type of bikes, (still getting use to it).
In general a great bike with maybe cheap components at some level.
I did had an issue with the derailleur, (but the seller quickly took care of replacement parts), again shifting was not all that in tune, until I paid additional at the shop.
So far my experiences off road has been good, with great response from the full suspension. (I might make some adjustments - looking to set the bike to my own customized configuration).
One current issue i just came across (03/19/17) changing the cheap "Walmart" pedals, while unscrewing the right pedal from the crank arm the tread of the crank arm seem to have been already worn out, making it impossible to security tie the new pedals in place.
I sent an email to seller in an attempt to get this part under warranty. I will see if customer service stays on top on this one!
Update! After just a few hours since I contacted the seller, they are sending me a new crank arm, no questions asked! Well this makes me very happy!
I WILL STILL RECOMMEND THIS BIKE TO ANY ONE LOOKING TO UP THEIR GAME, AND WANTING TO OWN A GOOD CARBON BIKE AT A REASONABLE AND UNBEATABLE PRICE TAG.
