You're looking here at a typical low-end heavy bike. Perhaps this bike would be good for a beginner, a kid, or as a beater or commuter.

Claris is 8 speed. Tourney is 7. The specs are confusing. Regardless, I would go for at least Acera for a mtn bike, preferably Deore. Anything below a middle of the road group set and frame will leave you wanting. As a basic short distance commuter or grocery getter it would be fine.

Internet Bike from the Philippines?

What could go wrong?

The OP is likely a marketing effort. This "brand" is heavily internet and social media marketed, a recent entrant. Recommend that everyone buys one and runs it down a mountain to see what happens. Report back.

Good sleuthing. Thread smelled fishy from the start. Can you even edit a thread title once it's posted?

At 132 bucks USD, it fits squarely in BSO category.
