stock spokes WILL BREAK!
know, or learn to do hub/crank re-greasing/repair &get the spokes upgraded to 12g. ss! then have fun!
go ahead and ruin 2good pairs of chucks before you worry bout the brakes!!!! HHHHAHA!
...oh, and bring a tape measure!!!! one store will carry bikes from several sources as long as they ship from the same warehouse,central location! I.E:CHECK THE CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE SEAT TUBE & HEAD TUBE!, THE SEAT TUBE & INNERMOST POINT OF REAR FRAME BRACKET (OR SEAT TUBE & TIRE IF PRE-INSTALLED) THE MORE ROOM EITHER DIRECTION, YOU'RE HAVIN A GOOD DAY!
hope this helps...
