Bottom line

This is an unreliable bike that led many riders to regret their purchase. Components and tires are cheap and weak. There are no complaints about the durability of the frame but it is almost unbelievably weighty for full aluminum. It was described as being too heavy and inconvenient for city riding. Numerous owners warned prospective buyers, asking that they ‘do not buy’ the RMX.
