Hey, I had one of those bikes way back when. It was a great bike ... for about a month. Then it started rapidly falling apart. I couldn't seem to put it back together. The bike shops wouldn't touch it and yelled at me for trying to bring it into there stores. I continued to ride it for another 3 years or so. Then there was an intervention and they took it away from me.
