This bike is fast and handles well in experienced hands. It is, however, fully capable of allowing you to maim yourself if you don't know what you're doing. I've ridden bikes off and on for 20+ years, and managed to spit myself off the back of it. Also, if it's still sporting the stock handle bars, chain, and sprockets, they will need replaced pretty much upon picking it up.
