Don't recommend bikes because essentially you get what you pay for and the way the bike works depends on the retailer you bought it from more than what is painted on the down tube,

I will make a comment on your selection. It is absolutely typical of a lot of bikes from the big makers in that it is a right old mish mash of components. A bit of SRAM, a bit of Shimano of different specs, A bit of Hayes, odd hubs (one shimano, one not), probably a cheap bottom bracket. It is a very good example of a bike that has been specified to look good to the average bike buyer yet meet a price target. It is not a bad bike but it is nowhere near what it pretends to be.
