My golly gosh, this bike is a fine work of art made to fit in both on the track an in the city. Matte black scheme makes it look classy but also full of some potential for swapping parts out for a black/chrome finish or keeping up with the fads of today. I got some wide bars to put on it and its lookin good with those or the drops. It rides real smooth and stiff but not uncomfortable stiff.
Getting my bike was a bit scary because Aventon changed my shipping code without telling me, but within 2 minutes of talking with someone on their website i had my new code. Speaking of shipping it came within 3 days of ordering.
I'd say the one drawback for someone that likes a clean bike is that it scratches very easily, but slap a clear coat on it or something and it'll be fine. I personally don't like to baby things around so its just gonna have some battle scars.
I love it, I personally would change out the wheelset if anything first.
