Most are simply drunk on the s,ell of their own cork and I firmly believe that this hatred of all things Chinese stems from a strong case of Chinese penis envy as much as an inability to accept the fact that America simply does not produce the quality goods she used to
In these links are fellers the crap shoot went badly..
When I first tried my very first H.T. I went with a KMart Special. I am familiar with cheap junk what is good and that was not a good bike for me. While it lasted well enough to learn about the motor and all the quirks. I prefer High End stuff like real hubs, spokes ,rims, brakes for one.
The flanges on some of these lower end hubs for one are known for breaking spokes because they are too thin.

Not all of these bike frames come with thick walled tubing ether. Just because the metal says alloy is not enough. The cranny has thinner walled tubing. Something to consider here I think.
Some fellows don't know the limitations of their parts. I think this should have real clarity.
