Yes I ordered from Bikes Direct, the “Night Train Fat Bike.” The Novatec rear hub free wheel broke in less than 200 miles. Spins forward and backwards. So I u-tubed it and low and behold junk. However, I was not expecting Crank Brother’s for that price. The other scary thing is you wonder if their legit, waiting wondering if your bikes gonna show cause they have already taken your money. You won’t have the support of your local bike shop but how good is that? Most correspondence is emailing back and forth no face to face. I found it interesting that the warranty resolution was to replace it with someone else’s hub. I’m at a place in my life where saving a few bucks does’nt matter to me probably spend the extra money and have the dealer deal with it if you can find a dealer that’s worth a hoot. High turn over and lack of concern for quality of work and personal integrity is a little lean everywhere. But if you don’t mind doing some or a lot of your own work I’m enjoying the Night Train once I get it going. You will need more than one bike to ride you will be ok.
