I bought the mountain bike below 5 months ago. So far I have broken:
Saddle in two places
Knocked both wheels out of true
Just yesterday, I bent the front wheel beyond repair, and tore the saddle right down the middle.
I’m thinking I should have gone with a nicer bike, but I’m not sure that the nicer bikes are any “tougher”. In all fairness I do things like dirt jumps and parking lot wheelies, I also crash slightly more often than the guys I ride with.
I’d like to ride more and fix less.
