Watch out for that splined crank shaft. It, improperly assembled and adjusted, can cause problems.
For the most part, the Chiordas that I have found have been entry level, at best. Be careful with the fork - it is extremely fragile and bends quite easily. Other than that, another Italian offering designed to meet the needs of the entry level enthusiast.
