Rated2out of5byuneek78fromChange of HeartI purchased this bike about a month ago. Initially when I reviewed it I didn't have much to compare it against since I was a new rider. I have rode once or twice a weekend since I purchased this bike. I've been riding with other people. I've noticed I'm the only one having mechanical problems. I ride singletrack. My chain has fallen off several times. Also, it appears my 3rd, 2nd, and possibly 1st gears are no longer working correctly.

Rated4out of5byuneek78fromLovin' it!Loving my bike! This is my first bike and this past weekend I gave it the most abuse I have since I've owned it. I just recently had clip-in pedals put on and I was falling all over the place. The bike made some pretty hard falls. Nothing broken. It's covered in dirt, but in one piece.
