This was my first build on a super tight budget. I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out on my limited funds.

That ride looks kind of like it would rattle going over cracks in the pavement. Hate to say it but those BigShot bikes belong in the garbage. My advice, start with something solid then build from there...putting money into a jankmobile isn't generally advisable.


Well I didn't ask for anybodys advice. This was my first build for around 65 with decent parts for hard riding and it is still ridden hard. It's not a weekend warrior bike and I am not someone that spends thousands of dollars on their bike. I don't know how the hell anybody can look at a pic and say it looks like it will rattle??


Lots of experience in bikebuilding gives one the ability to ascertain within a certain degree of accuracy whether or not a particular steed is likely to be a rattletrap.

And FYI...posting your bike on Velospace IS an invitation for comments. That's what this place is.
