5 reasons not to buy
- The rear disc brake received a fair amount of criticism; as being undersized, underpowered and difficult to calibrate.
- A few owners received scratched frames.
- Pedals were sometimes considered cheap, resulting in an undesirable level of flex and an audible creak.
- The gear ratio was too low for some users, who desired a larger chainring and a more challenging ride.
- The crankset seemed to be replaced often. It was described as being solid and reliable, but unnecessarily heavy. One owner knocked 2lbs off the bike by upgrading to an alloy crank.
