    I do have one thing to add the only complaint that I had about the department store bike was weight in the 300 miles I put on it?

    300 miles is pretty good for a department store build. Usually nothing will remain in tune that long on a 'Mart bike. Usually can't keep a gear after 300 miles, rims areout of true so far they are rubbing the brakes that no longer stop effectively, etc. And that's providing nothings broken, fallen off, etc.
