    Yes, Beerman, I realized there are a lot of forums about the Cleveland, but none of them discuss the weaknesses of the bike.

    Clevelands are really good bikes for the money.

    I'm not a fan of the cranks, but for the price you can't get anything better from any other brands. What I don't like about the cranks is that they have loose ball BBs and are kinda heavy and unsofisticated. The BBs can come loose often if you ride lots - one of the reasons sealed BBs are so much better. Oh, i think the sprocket is a bit of a weak point - the iron crosses look great but if you hit them in the wrong spot they dent kind of easily. Oh, and the bearings in the rear wheel are not available at bearing shops - only through DK and DK dealers - so keep an eye on the bearings so you can order some as soon as you see/hear signs of wear.

    I personally think the Cleveland is one of the best deals (if not the best) for a good quality cheap bike. Am I biased towards them because I sell them? No, more like I sell them because they're good.

    Thanks, yes, I did think think the Cleveland was a pretty good bike for the money too. It was a tossup between the Fit Pro, and the Cleveland, but the Cleveland looks like a much better buy for the money. Do you know anyone that has had any problems with it?

    true...but it only is one pound heavier.and one pound would hardly matter. get a six pack as it is better and is not much more....if that u think that one pound hinders ur performance that much then u are simply just not good enough.
