Thank you for your help
The trouble is freewheels, tourney derailleurs made of plastic, single wall rims (if it has those) are quite lightweight compared to an entry level freehub/cassette drivetrain and stronger double wall wheels. It may be a cheap bike in components but its not really in retail price. Anyway best of luck with your purchase whatever model you decide.
