I've bought one in Nov., have replaced seat, installed front brake and since put a good 1+k miles on it, it's holding up well, longest ride has to be abut 50 miles (ouch). I'm having a blast riding it, a good user and since it's cheap I don't mind beating the **** out of it! Plus when locked up I don't think a second about it while having a pint, try doing that with a Keirin frame.
For the price it's a great bike, a lot people check out the bike and think it's worth something.
Components are still holding up but the frame is the best part and worth upgrading components from time to time. Stock tires gets flats easily. Not sure bikes available anymore. + Don't hold breath with Bikes direct warranty.
