Looks interesting. Looks like they are basing it on some bikecross designs. Past visuals I can't say. I don't know the company at all.

Save your money. That thing will fold like a house of cards.

That thing would break down faster than the rules of grammar in your post.
Plus it's ugly...you would get beaten up in my neighborhood if you got caught riding that.

As did every country with a leader with at least half a brain.

Enjoy your freedom fries.

Ditto on the save your money advice from Raiyn.
Ditto on advice of gastrocnemius, especially the rules of grammer.
A $139.00 bike would NOT last 1 week. I can tell by your post what kind of rider you are and this bike is not for you. It would be okay for riding to 7-11 and getting your ICEE. But please save your money for a more substantial ride.

It's a POS, no one wants it, no one needs it. And you don't. So go out there and buy a <insert good bike name here>.
