This is my 2nd build, & my 2nd Favorite Bike. the bike shop where i bought this bike said it was better than a schwinn. i have a Schwinn Delmar that is yet to be put together. the only difference is that the Torker does have bigger spokes, however the Schwinn Delmar has better fenders, & they are more securely fastened. this bike has the same trailer hitch as my other bike.
