you know what? i'm not going to sugarcoat this or nothin'- i hate this bike. with every bone in my body, i desipise it so much. why? because it's design is SO TERRIBLE it makes my eyes bleed. cole and bijan are awesome riders and i have nothing bad to say about them (luh you guys). but these bikes are so terrible.
well, why don't you like them jmik? well i'll tell you.
right off the bat- this thing has 14mm axles. you're going "well yeah, a rear should be 14mm". i'll respond by saying "it's plural..." YES THIS THING HAS 14MM AXLES FRONT AND REAR. so if you wanted to swap out the front with a well built wheel, you pretty much cant because the fork takes a 14mm axle. wanna sell the front wheel? can't because NO ONE RUNS A 14MM AXLED WHEEL IN THE FRONT.
(the front setup, not the 14mm axle)
then there's the stupid seat tube that looks like it's too long and has a really terrible looking seat clamp. it's reversed too so it looks like
the rear triangle is way too long. with a 2.2 and the axle slammed, there's still a
the components are decent enough. i guess.
here's the last thing, and i'm going to tell you though anecdote. so some kid was selling one of these on a facebook forum claiming it was a 26" 14 bike co. i couldn't have that. i told him straight up what it was, and for a while he was seriously trying to fight my allegations. alas, i convinced him that he had been screwed. the worst part of this bike is the crap they're pulling off another company's look and setting the seatstays lower.
this whole bike sucks and it's competing against the pfix and the SE primetime. what a waste of decent 4130- it just comes to show that some people just want to see the world burn.
