    No, it is horrible. No matter how fast you spin your legs, you won't do well.
    Just keep pedaling.

    but if you do get one than you need to go small, like a 48 if you would normally go with a 55, its alright for allycats but magnas are way better

    "The only reasons anyone should ever ride in the rain is because a) you’ve had your license to operate a motor vehicle suspended by the state. b) you’re in a bike race in which case you’re not allowed to use fenders anyway. c) you’re from Portland- in which case my main problem is with your neck beard- not your bicycle...If you need to train when it’s pissing rain- buy a trainer or one of those cheap charter flights to Mallorca."

    oh thanks! real answers appreciated. I have a question though—are those shocks? do they make the bike heavier or do I really need them? how much does that run?

    Considering the failure rate of Magnas, you will be doing quite a bit of running/walking.

    165, you may be telling the truth about the gearing, but you don't fool me—that magna is women's specific... that much I know.

    and you call yourself a mod—you should be ashamed.

    You have to use hydrochloric acid to remove the stickers.
    They always lose every race. Stay away from them.
