The Hitch arrived in packaging without any damage. It was shipped within its own box that was enclosed in another box. After assembling it for about 15 minutes, I weighed the whole rig( with stock pedals and seat), which came to roughly 44 lbs. The seat post requires some force in tightening it around the seat but was secure afterwards (don't forget to grease your seat post).
After calibrating the brakes, I found that the front rotor was not totally "trued" (thus 1 star subtracted) and still had some scraping sounds during the front wheels' rotation. After riding it for two miles, the scraping sound was gone and the brake pads were seated well.
Of course, being a steel bike, the Hitch is heavier than the more expensive aluminum ones. However, the ride quality is stable and almost bouncy and the braking power is adequate provided you've calibrated the brakes well. I still have to test it in the trails but have ridden it in snow and ice (streets of Ottawa ON) with 10 PSI on front and back tires. The tires were grippy and surefooted. The 7 speed transmission may be a limiter for those (including me) who are not super fit, but then again, I am mostly going to be using this on flat to moderately rolling trails, not extreme technical routes. I figure the extra 25 lbs (compared to my aluminum frame CAAD10) will hopefully translate into stronger legs and lungs. At $249, with drilled out rims and disc brakes, you can hardly go wrong with this choice and can gain quick entry into the fun world of fat biking.
