    Comments:

    I use this bike for transportation in My City. As a heavy rider (280-290, 6'7") I was at first apprehensive as I have broken bikes when I was lighter. The frame is aluminum, so it is lighter than steel, but still exceptionally beefy. It is a hard frame, so you do need to stand up while riding over bumpy terrain. Since I am such a large human, and I tend to ride pretty hard in town (EG hopping curbs, quick acceleration and deceleration, leaning hard into corners, crashing a few times, riding 30 miles in the rain and mud, and generally causing a ruckus in my town) but it keeps holding up to me, my abuse, and my riding style. Word of warning: If you are a larger person like me, please replace the pedals as they are cheaply made and susceptible to cracking or breaking while riding. Also, take my cons with a grain of salt. If you are at or under 200 lbs, the pedals and wheels should last you for a long time under many stresses.

    I would love this bike if I didn't have to replace rear spokes every month - six busted spokes since I bought it five months ago. The Bike Doctor did me a solid and replaced the last two on short notice but said this is not generally a warranty item. Another just went "ping" as I was riding along flat payment with no pannier load so I will have to spend more time tearing the rear hub apart. Not happy.
