    getting fixed

    Alright this isn't an article about my cat! haha

    I know there is a search feature but, I'm looking into a Windsor The Hour and I know its not a high-end bike. But I'm used to riding heavy cheap mountain bikes haha. So I'm kinda a rec. rider, but a serious one no the less, I really do love riding more then your avarage joeblow on a bike. My top speed I've done on a bike is only like 25-26mph, but not bad for a 16 year old on a cheap mountain bike lol

    So I would like to know if "The Hour" would be a safe small town neighberhood cruiser, well not really crusier haha. But I don't want to wreck because of a crappy bike.

    noob....

    ESPECIALLY on this subject, you're best off using the search feature. It has been discussed AT LENGTH many times.

    So wait. you know there is a search feature yet you choose to ignore the fact that it exists and ask a question that has been asked 40 times? How does that compute?

    Here is the deal. Its a low end but not terrible bike. Some parts are decent(frame cranks) some are total crap (wheels hubs cogs) Youre better off shelling out another 200$ for an iro (www.irocycles.com) or somthing similar. Because after upgrading the crappy parts youre at the same price.

    Edit: Also those list prices are total bs and bike direct has some pretty shady marketing practices.
