Many ask why our bikes are so cost effective. The answer is simple, we design, import, distribute, and retail our own bikes. These efficiencies save our customers 50-70% over comparable quality bikes.

The Downtube FS was designed with safety and ease of use in mind. High quality components and design was a premium goal with this bike. Some of the quality parts include:

- Aluminum frame with aluminum swingarm (FS Model)

- Front suspension fork by Zoom with transarch and preload adjustment.

- 9sp Sunrace M93 drivetrain

- 48T front chainring.

- 11-12-14-16-18-21-24-28-32 SunRace cassette. A cassette is a huge upgrade from our competitors 7sp freewheel bikes. Freewheels are a "cheaper" type of cassette. Cassettes shift MUCH better than Freewheels

- Oversized 1 1/8" headset, for increased durability and performance.

- Quality V-brakes.

- Double wall 24/28H front/rear 20" alloy rims.

- Quality front and rear Kenda 20" tires.

All buyers should get their bike checked by a professional after receipt just to be safe. Normally the brakes may be a bit off center, which is easy to fix, the shifting will almost always be out. Read our derailleur adjustment instructions. The crank bolts should be tightened. Fitting a bike to your body is just as important than buying the right bike. Please use our fitting instructions to fit the bike to your body.
