        Awesome...Sram 1x11,Stan's No Tubes...New favorite ride!

        Missing quality

        For the price tag I was expecting much more than a nice paint job. After ~200miles rear hub already needs to be greased. Brakes are hard to adjust as well. Replaced saddle immediately because of how uncomfortable it was. The crank is constantly coming undone and I've needed to tighten it 3 times already.

        This bike Rocks!

        I got my thunderbird as a Christmas present from my husband last year. Since then I have thrown everything at this bike from Singletracks, gravel grinders, and just cruising the city streets. This bike can do it all very happy with the Thunderbird!

        Blazing Saddles

        After riding fixed for awhile, I decided to try something new and venture into the world of cyclocross. The Thunderbird is an amazing build and is quickly becoming my ride or die. It is very light comparatively to other cyclocross bikes on the market and its awesome build allows for some massive speed. The only things I changed after purchasing were the saddle and the gear ratio as the factory cog was a little slow for what I wanted. Also in vain, I may add that the style is superbly slick and makes me extremely approachable to all the puppies in Tempe Beach Park. All around, an awesome bike that I would 110% recommend for anyone looking for speed and agility in a decently priced bike. Also, thank you to the awesome crew at the warehouse and the shop for the assembly and after market customizations.

        solid commuter

        purchased as winter commuter in new england on moderate hills and city streets. for the price its a decently configured bike. I switched out the rear cog to a 14T, upgraded the chain, replaced saddle and pedals, and it works great for me on big hills and rough city streets. its a fun ride, and its comfortable. I'm curious to see how the bottom bracket bolts will hold over time. on that note, the eccentric bottom bracket is pretty good and easy to adjust. I might extend its use beyond winter commuting. if i do, the wheels, hubs and brakes would all likely be upgraded. maybe would switch out the bottom bracket too, who knows. I expect it will suit my needs fine for terrible winter weather commuting.the color is kinda fun too.

        Holy Awesome, Batman!

        Become the coolest kid on the block with the Thunderbird. It has the looks, confidence inspiring set up, and your wallet won't hate you. Your new favorite activity will be seeing how many 'Pros' you can pass during race season, gears and carbon wheels not needed.
        Would recommend to a friend.

        Thunderbird Review

        This bike is pretty rad. Out of the box I was pretty satisfied with the product. I've owned a lot of track and road bikes and randomly I decided to go with a state sscx. I use this bike to commute on a college campus, and I take it for rides up Logan and Green Canyon (gravel/rocky trails). This bike is definitely durable. I have upgraded my cockpit to thomson, and now planning on changing the sscx to a 1x10 build. I already love it at sscx but if there are gears I can now take it on roadie rides. If you already have all your custom parts, I would definitely suggest buying just the frameset too. Also the customer service is great. I love how I can message an agent that will respond within the minute. There the agent can answer questions about anything like the size of the seatpost clamp and what they recommend if you want to run a 1x10 setup. I love my bike!

        Rockin race machine straight out of the box!

        I am new to cross, but this bike rocks! I have been racing other disciplines for 10 year and just this year I decided to try out cross. I wanted a bike that wouldn't break the bank but I could still race and would look good. And this bike delivered! I was able to race this bike with no modifications (except putting on my pedals). I am having a blast, now I just need to work on my skills!
