- Myriads of owners reported a level of saddle discomfort that bordered on abusive.
- The kickstand was apparently flimsy and bent easily under the bike’s weight.
- At just shy of 40lb, this obese eagle is grounded.
- A surprising number of buyers received untrue front wheels. One cracked after brief use.
- Factory-direct damage included bent frames and forks, ripped saddles, scratches and a busted front derailleur.
- It seems that the Alpine Eagle is incredibly fast, at rusting.
- The front ‘suspension’ fork hit rock-bottom easily. One broke after two weeks use.
- More than one owner complained of a loose and wobbly cassette.

- The rear derailleur was sometimes dragged into the rear wheel, crushing riders’ dreams.
- Safety was threatened by a handlebar that many owners found impossible to tighten.
- For two riders, the chain broke on their first ride. One never made it out of the driveway.
- The instruction manual was renowned for its lack of clarity.
- In pictures, the Alpine Eagle has mounts for a bottle cage! In reality, it doesn’t.
- The seatpole was a nuisance for users, as it persistently loosened.

- Tuning gears was a real grind, as was accessing the entire range.
