Date Reviewed: January 30, 2005

Strengths:    Great sizing for kids, low gearing 22/32/44, realistic price. Easy to use controls.

Weaknesses:    Already replaced the 1)BB with a sealed unit- bent race from new 2) seat clamp with alloy unit- cheap steel unit wouldn't hold the seat! 3)lubed & adjusted the hubs/headset etc-little or no grease & over tight! 4) trued the rear wheel 3X - weak spokes! may get replace the whole wheel 5) reach adjustment on brake levers kept tightening in- fixed with red loctite!

Bottom Line:   
Offers a lot but falls well short on the quality of some components. I did the repairs/updates myself so the local bike shop didn't get any money. When I called the supplier about the issues- comment back "no we just put them together don't check the problem areas you have, besides we make money on all the repairs etc."
Still a great bike but get it checked by a mechanic you trust before handing over the money.
