Not strong enough

I got this bike from Santa Clara Summit Bike store, and it wasn't like a month, that the bike started to have some noise when I hit the pedal. I took it to the store and they fixed it for me, turns out the issue was loose spokes ( yes this was just within a month). After that I used to take the bike for frequent long road trips ( ~20-30miles ), and now today ( after a month of the latest repair and after only 2 such trips ), the bike's gears have started to malfunction, even the pedalling shaft slips while pedaling, which even caused me an injury when I was pedaling too fast and it gave a jerk and my foot slipped :( Now again the bike is making the same weird noise ( as it was when I first took it to the repair ), and this time it has the gear issue added on top of it. I had got this bike as it was economical and seemed value for money, but it seems I made a wrong decision, as the overall bike now proves to be a badly made bike with cheap parts, which cannot sustain a casual bike usage. I am really disappointed, and I wish the Summit guys give me a replacement or else I am never going to buy a bike from them, or even recommend anyone at all from buying it.

I love this bike! I have had a mountain bike for years and never realized what I was missing out on. Riding this bike has motivated me to hit the streets and get some great exercise! The ride is so smooth and much easier than using a mountain bike for city riding! The bike is well manufactured and makes a great ride for a reasonable price!
