I went to Roadlink to check out the Heist 5 & came across this (SC2). The SC2 retails for $640 but is currently having a CNY promo - you get some rodalink cash vouchers. As it was raining, I couldn't do test run. Probably will go back later.
Any suggestions/ feedback from folks who have used SC2? How does it compare to Heist 5?
it depends if u are using it for commuter everyday ride or a weekend warrior ride.
fairfax is a commuter bike for everyday ride. hassle free v-brakes, 8 speed internal nexus hub are more or less requires little maintenance. it also does away the dead weight of the non-mtb suspension fork, replacing them with light rigid aluminum fork
