How are you reading even the smallest amount of "rudeness" in what I said? I feel my post was rather respectful.
It's not like I posted a pic of me with my pants down and told you to kiss my ass!
Also, I checked the FAQ and they claim the batteries can be replaced on those lights, but they don't say how just yet. I'd really want to try to put a brighter LED in there, though.

Have at it!! I know most people hate the aerospokes so I am sure that will be the number one thing. I also saw where a lot people had been having problems with the aventon forks breaking so I went to my lbs and grabbed a carbon fiber fork that was a pull off for $50 until I decide on what fork I want for sure.
That fork actually blends in nicely with the overall color scheme of the bike. I like the red cranks, red wheel, sort of big circle, little circle.
But since this is about what I don't like; well, I don't like the seat post. The white logo on it accentuates its smaller diameter compared to the bikes' massive seat tube. Maybe if it was flat black?
I would go with compact drops and have less rise on the stem, but it looks pretty good. You could have focused in on the bike a bit more in the photo.
I really don't get that style of bike. It looks clunky, unattractive and uncomfortable ... and that's before you start thinking about using the thing. Still, lots of people like them so I guess they must have some virtues - if everyone agreed with me, who'd I have to argue with?
I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it
I really haven't had too many comfort issues for rides up to 30ish miles.
The most uncomfortable thing, for me, is carrying a bag around when I commute to work. But if I'm just riding around, it's not uncomfortable.
I don't think I'll be doing a ton of centuries on the thing though.
Its use is in rapid acceleration and short bursts of speed. This can be useful if you are a commuter in a city trying to make stop-lights or if you are trying to win a track race but it is even more useful if you like the sensation of going fast.

^^Don't forget street cred points, sw8 skidz, and the fact that it matches my attire.
The "pro's" are almost endless.
I made some adjustments in the fit and I'm way more comfortable on the bike. I think what I disliked the most were those stupid diagonal foot straps, impossible to get into. I put on some clipless pedals and it's way better. Also, had some time yesterday to finally put on my headbadge that I had made (family crest more or less). I am starting to enjoy this bike more than I originally thought after the first ride.
I'm not a fan of the brake levers or position.
