New cotic full susser is all steel.

The machining on the rocker on these is so impressive.

I agree coomber, its build quality has far exceeded my expectations. You can see where they had to cut corners to keep the price down. But under all the low rent kit is a fantastic bike waiting to come out, which is my plan. My boss that just dropped 2k on a new cannondale was more than impressed with it. Infact I think he was a little bit shocked with how good it rides compared to his.
