That's painting with a very broad brush. REI bikes can be very good value for money; some are not. The same can be said of every other bike line.

I set up my long distance machines 3 x 7 but there's a lot to be said for the closer spacing you get with more gears in the rear.

Nice bike. The Alpinas are nice bikes. I like the suntour stuff as well but the indexing was hit or miss. I wouldn't sweat the damage to the chainstay; just touch it up and ride it.
