The crankarm broke after 65 miles (2 weeks) of commuting. not a terrible problem for most people, but it was very inconvenient and stressful given that I bike to work everyday. Because of this, I feel like the frame is fine, but the components are mediocre in my experience. I have a constant clunking noise when I pedal, as if a drum line is marching me home from work. As does my friend who reccommended your bikes to me. For the price, I would recommend this bike to someone who doesn't commute to work and doesn't depend on their bicycle for transportation. I don't think spending the money on a complete bicycle kit should require the owner to replace componants after two weeks.
