It's a solid starter bike that's made by Stolen. Look into a Premium Duo and a Kink Transition.

It's an alright bike, but the frame isn't full chomoly. The more chromoly the better.

Go for the Kink Transition. I have that bike. It is great, the best bike easily for the price. The geometry is perfect, nice components, it's a perfect bike.
