first thing you will need when it breaks are the unsealed hubs so be on the look out for a wheelset when those hubs get thrashed a while down the road.

handlebars. you don't need huge handlebars to be like all the trendy kids, but those sound tiny!

then it's all cool.. It's your bike.. just ride until something breaks.. I always keep checking mail order websites and when they have something I really like, I'll buy it. Even though that part isnt really broken..
Buy shit that you like or if you dont have much money often, you can save up and replace partst that break.. Unsealed hubs will probably break soon..

Yeah, well some of those post's made me think it's junk or something IDK, I didn't ask if it was a pro level bike. I just wanted to know some of the weak links on this bike so I can be prepared to upgrade to better parts...

That's all...

Rebman, first off, don't pay much attention to half the idiots on this site. If you're happy with the bike, then ride it. When you get better and learn more about bikes, components, and how they are built, then you'll upgrade to a new ride.

As for your bike, it's a decent entry level bike. I'm assuming you are an entry level rider, so you don't need a pro level bike just yet. Ride your bike, be happy, and upgrade if and when you want to. There's a ton of good bikes out there, even by Mirraco. There LTD bikes are some of the best completes around, if you wanna lay down $2000 for a bike. Everyone has different tastes, follow different trends, whatever. Do what you want, set up your bike how you want it, and just ride. Like I said, the more you ride and hang out with other riders, the more you'll learn and know what you want in your next bike.
