Most of these bikes are rebranded frames or siblings of the higher tier with lackluster specs. Very few of those bikes are worthwhile…My first impressions of the bike were coy. It looked like another half-baked frame just to serve a particular market, but my initial impressions changed once I put my leg over the bike and took it on a real ride.

The first thing I noticed about the Alpinestars kit was how comfortable the material.
