bought this last year. Add a few bell and whistles for practical use. It kinda on the cheap side. The disk brake is not hydraulic. I'm fine with the old brake really. This disk brake is a bit fancy for my liking. Guess i'm used to cheap bicycles. They might not ride fast but they work great. While this one it's fancy. The more fancy the more costly and costly to maintain. But my old bicycle was getting tooooo old.
