Anyone ride one at all? I saw their was one review and was hoping for a little more feedback on it. Like the price and looking for a cheap frame to build up. Is it a waste of money or should i wait for a used gem on ebay? Thanks for your responses

What is it with this frame? You would think for the price it would be all over this board!
This is the $249 aluminum frame/carbon fork model from SuperGo. I was actually thinking of ordering one myself, but wanted to see it in person first. I'm out of state (they're in SoCal) and if I didn't like it, I'd have to pay $20 shipping both ways to return it. I did see one at a local ride, good looking frame, basic looking decals, decent finish on welds--by that I mean I didn't notice that it looked like some cheapo Frankenbike. I asked the rider what he thought and his comments were:
"For the price, you can't beat it"
"The frame is light and stiff"
"The fork is okay, not the best but certainly rideable"
Keep in mind this is second hand information, but since no one else replied, I thought I would share....also, if you do pick one of these up or if you live in SoCal and stop by to see one in person, can you post your comments?

Yeah people are always talking about Leader frames but those are even creeping up in cost. I may get just for sh!ts and grins. I'll post if i do,
