Nice frame. seems strong and is real stiff.
gets out of the gate realy nice

components suck. cheep one piece crank
some generic brack that had to be filed to get the cable to release, wheels were advertised as sealed berring but were only a contact seal. Also a bit on the heavy side

Bottom Line:   
This would be a good bike in the $300 to $350 range but not worth the $450 they want for it

Bottom Line:   

I actually have Opie's big brother the 24 Lush Rush Cruiser. I bought the 24 model for mountain bike cross training. There's an indoor bmx track up here so I thought this would keep me busy during the cold/snowy winter months and improve my bike handling skills at the same time. Out-of-the-box this bike is spec'd out very nicely for the price: Bontrager parts package including Bruiser rims. Some downfalls of this bike are (1) weight, it seems heavy to me but I guess I'll take a little extra weight if that means better durability; (2) crank, before you even take the bike home have the dealer swap out the shitty one-piece crank for a three-piece model (they're more rigid and work with mountain bike pedals); (3) poor chain clearance. I didn't notice this until I swapped the 44-tooth sprocket for a 40-tooth. Due to the frame design, the chain is very close to hitting the frame. Mine actually hits the frame a little when the going gets rough. I guess this isn't that big of a deal but you would think Gary Fischer would have noticed this when designing the frame and allowed for a little more chain clearance in his frame design. Overall its a nice ride, but only worth 4-chilis due to the chain clearance flaw.
