    Strengths:    Good value for money, and fine operation.

    Weaknesses:    When you scratch it, it looks not so good.

    Bottom Line:   
    The PC-38 chain works fine.
    The 5.0 brake levers are from plastic, work quite good, but sometimes it feels not so strong. I replaced it with Avid SD levers, they feels better.
    The 5.0 gripshift operates fast, smooth, and precious, much better than a Revoshift from Shimano. Only the rubbers are worn a littlebit and the surface of the top is worn and scratched when I turned the bike to its handlebars.
    The 5.0 Freewheel operates fine, after more than 1000 miles, a little wear is visible.
    The X-gen FD works superb.
