Their frames are pretty solid... literally.

Have a friend who has an x mart rigid hybrid and this Al frame is a boat anchor with the worst ride quality I have ever experienced regardless of the tyres we have put under it.

He wants to upgrade it with new wheels and a better crank and a bunch of other bits and my advice was to get himself to the LBS and for a little more than what he planned to spend, can get himself a decent entry level hybrid with a good warranty and way nicer parts.

Suggested he keeps the x-mart bike as his B bike.
