As long as it isn't a conversion thats a pretty good deal. And yeah, I like it. I get compliments on it all the time. The geometry is a bit stiff for street riding but its an aluminum bike so thats to be expected.

right now my bottom bracket is a 110.5, if i buy new cranks that require 107 bottom bracket will it fit on my frame?

why wouldn't it be fit on your bike? in my opinion, those crank will just fit fine.

There isn't a single reason to have a heavy frame. Aluminum versus steel is totally different though.

No... what a waste of money, rename that shit aeroJOKE

A well laced wheel is good for a "big" person, if you are sketched out ride 48 spokes, that shit is bombproof

I'm moving to new york to be a student and i definitely dont wanna take the subway. I'm planning on going to my nearest bike shop to check it out. I know i want something lightweight, like a track bike and brakes etc. is there anything else i should know?
May 13, 2010 @ 17:26
How much is your budget? If it's low, try to get a SE or Mercier or Windsor. They are light weight and track bikes.
May 13, 2010 @ 17:55
@EKANS Why are SE bikes horrible? What is better? Mercier? Windsor? Motobecane?
May 13, 2010 @ 18:25
i always recommend the mercier.
the frameset was great, but the rest of the components are iffy.

get one off of bikesdirect, throw on a new pedal setup, maybe some new handlebars, and youre good to go.

steel vs. aluminum? and does it matter which pedals or handlebars i get as long as its what i want or can afford? or should i avoid certain companies?
May 14, 2010 @ 00:17
I'd say steel its more stronger and you don't really need a feather light bike. Go with what you can afford but for cranks I would get sugino messangers. Oh yeah avoid getting ourys. Worst grips ever. I'd just get bmx grips.

AND THE HIPPOS WERE BOILED IN THEIR TANKS...
