My sprained wrist, torn ligaments, road rash and cuts say DONT GET THE 700C THRUSTER! Oh and both tires are busted too... If I had landed differently and hit my head thatd been it for me. The brakes are garbage.. The tires are narrow and overall the only motorized bicycle worthy thing is the frame which was easily mounted onto.
