Bought this last week. Love it! I replaced the stock tires with Bontrager 2.2 Hanks. The LBS tried to talk me out of them but I think they're great! I ride this on the streets/campus just for fun. It is a second bike that I keep in my office so I can ride at lunch. The Avid BB-5's stop with awesome power but they squeal/grind with a horrible noise. I've read that lots of others have had this same problem with the BB-5's. The rear derailleur works great. The front works sloooooooooooow! Paint scheme is tops! I think it is a great value in it's price range.
