Re: Newbie is this kit any good?
Bikeberry has LOUSY customer service and a reputation for messing things up and refusing to fix it.
I'd suggest ebay.
Here is my vendor. (23 kits and counting...with NO lemons.)
or rose326 (same people)
Last kit was $140bucks shipped to my door.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
