Looked like a great value bike but the first one arrived, set it up and the front wheel seemed out of alignment with the brakes which were constantly rubbing. Sent it back, got the 2nd one professionally set up, the guys mentioned a problem with the gears slipping but they had done the best they could. After a couple of rides I found the gears where indeed slipping, they tried to alter them again, but gave up. The seat was uncomfortable too, but not a problem with the many gel pads out there...would be nice if the seat was comfortable in the first place though, to avoid incurring extra expense.
I don't doubt this is a good value bike, and for most people who buy it, they are pleased. I obviously had a couple of bad ones, so don't want anyone to be put off trying it.
