I have 2 kits and this is about bicycles and my experience. I have 1 bike I bought from Dicks sporting goods for almost 200$ and I have a bike I bought for 102$ off the net trying to save a few bucks. In my opinion the 200$ BIKE IS 5 TIMES THE RIDE AS THE CHEAP ONE!. iF i can help 1 person in this endeavor its worth my saying. The brakes and frame were vry much more satisfactory on the 200$ mongoose then the cheaper steel frame bike............any way my point is to newbies and it does make a difference on the bicycle you choose............good luck.
