Not bad, but how much is it? You can probably get a bike with a cassette for the same price. Depending on the price, I would go with a Stolen.

yep i was deciding between that and the dk six pack, but i figured this one has better rims, a front load stem (not top load), i can change the gyro to straight if i want because it converts to single cable after the gyro anyway and better bars and grips. i think when i buy the bike im getting a pryme helmet, probably a 30 tooth chainwheel and just dial it in from then

If you get a 30 tooth chainwheel, you should chain your back hub so you can get an appropriate gearing.

it should be alrte because rite now on my bike im running a 35-16 and with the 30-13 that would be like me running a 27-13 on my current bike. so i will be 3 teeth up on the front (or 1 on the back you can say) which will be alrite because it is fairly low gearing that im running now.

on my bike at the moment i run 35-16. so if i run a 30-13 that would be an extra 3 teeth on the front which would give me more top speed. so that would be cool because atm i am pedaling really fast

If you lower your gear ratio, you have less teeth meaning less speed but faster acceleration.

That's not a bad price in Oz. As far as how it will hold up, that depends on the rider, and maintenance.

There's a bit of difference between AU$500, and AU$570. $570 is no bargain, that's what they sell for.
