    Weird sizing, efficient machine

    This bike is a machine. It glides smoothly and feels solid.

    However, the stock saddle is a piece of shit, so I upgraded that. Also, this bike has odd geometry. I ordered a 62cm and it literally looks like a 58cm to the naked eye. Everyone at the bike shop said it looked small for a 62cm, so we measured, and it is definitely 62cm. We compared to other 62s in the shop, and they were bigger. My last bike was a 62, and it was bigger. I ended up buying a riser stem and now the fit is much better, although not like my last bike. I've only had it for a few days, so I am still deciding if I want to sell this or not.

    Also, the crank fell off on my first ride! Not sure who's fault, but I wasn't even mashing that hard. Luckily I live in Manhattan where there are plenty of bike shops. Good thing I wasn't trying to skid...

    Lastly, I asked for a 46:16 gear ratio, and they gave me 48:16 without notifying me. I only know because I asked the bike shop employee. I'm fine with this, but it may be problematic for others.

    TL;DR: Decent bike, weird sizing, mediocre service. I was skeptical of buying online, and this is why.
