    Well, the photo is fuzzy but it has an oil brake, a carbon fiber spacer and a golden chain. Sorry, not familiar with Sh1mano components. Can't say.

    No name everything and (potentially) knock-off parts and tires.

    I'd stay well away from it.

    Find a bike with a reputation. Donít go by BS reviews on the website selling said crap bike.

    If you canít find any legitimate reviews from actual established websites...:it most likely a crap bike. This includes most New Bikes on eBay under $500.

    One review said "Today I just hit my balls while riding it".

    I would steer clear.
