Now the positives; Bike paint looks great, not a single scratch. Packaging was well done. After some work the bike rides smoothly, no mechanical noises.
The petals are plastic but I'm starting to really like them. They're light, provide great grip, don't hurt too bad if they hit your shin, and cheap to replace if they break or wear. They're also not sealed and don't spin easily which I think is actually a good thing when you wanna throw down a tailwhip, superman, or any other little diddy. Everything else on the bike is sealed.
Not sure what else to say other than this bike makes me not miss the bike I built from he ground up and spent over a grand on. It's better than what I once had as a whole and it's from a brand of bike I've always respected and trusted. You won't be disappointed.
