Bike looks amazing. Retro curvy frame with huge cream tyres. Handle bars are fab and the tan saddle and grips are ace. Great for gentle cruising and coasting. Got some really cool looks from passers by as I coasted past them. Bought this for fun just for weekends tootling about only. Main bike is a full carbon commuter bike which is rapid. I knew by buying this I was not going to set any personal bests or do any long distance rides which is fine as I didn't buy it for those reasons. My problem is the choice of components they've used. I realise it's all budgetary and they need to make profit but a few of the parts are so cheap. I'd gladly pay an extra £30/50 if they upgraded a few items - mainly the brakes. My brakes don't work. They're so soft and only one brake pad moves towards the rim when you apply the brake handle. The other pad just sits there without moving. Also, when I tightened the saddle nut a couple of pieces of paint flaked off and fell on the floor. Now there's a couple of marks which go down to the bare metal. I had to take the stand off as the leg of the stand was rubbing on the tyre. I just thought the bike was noisy until I twigged that the stand was ill fitting. Now it's off there's no noisy rubbing going on. I'm still in love with the bike after all this as it's so cool and laid back. Can't wait to cycle the pub in summer. I got 34% off the RRP. I feel sorry for anyone who paid RRP price. Even with 34% off I'm thinking with the non-existent brakes and flakey paint I think maybe that 34 should be 45 as that would be a fair price for the kit received. You do get what you pay for - the wow factor of looks but remember that you really need to calculate your stopping distances and heaven forbid that you need to make an emergency stop. I'm still excited to take it for a spin in the summer though so don't let the above rant put you off. The tyres are amazing and so deep.
