I bought the bike for my son back in Nov. 2014. He crashed the bike and bent his forks. I ordered new forks and had a bike shop put them on and align the bike. The bike has never been the same. I'm disappointed that so much was damaged after one crash, plus our bike shop reminds me that these are not good bikes overall. I allowed my son to do his own research and he decided on a Pure Fix. I believe he went with a brand because of good marketing not quality.
