The Ortler Lindau has a quality aluminium frame and good spec for the price range. The gripshift transmission is smooth and the v-brakes, once correctly aligned are more than sufficient for stopping quickly and safely. My wife complained that the saddle was not particularly comfortable, and I felt the pedals were on the cheap side for this price range of bike as they were basic and plastic. Both of these items I am sure we will upgrade and are of a personal taste so do not detract from the overall bike.
It is worth noting that the brakes are setup continental style, with the left brake lever operating the front brake rather than the rear. This again can be changed by swapping over the cables, likely a 10 minute job and will require some fresh cable ends and a good cable cutter.
The Lindau comes with front and rear dynamo lights. This works with a mechanism that has a roller which when placed against the tyre works off the friction of the tyre and the plastic wheel. The mechanism to operate the dynamo can be engaged and disengaged easily by hand. The rear light stores kinetic energy, so when you stop at lights the rear light will remain on. The front light operates only under movement of the cycle, and the faster the bike is traveling the brighter it becomes until it reaches its peak. The front light will definitely have you seen by other road users, but does not create a lot of lumens, so if you travel down unlit roads, you may consider an additional front light.
Quick release seatpin to adjust saddle height and bolt tightened wheels with regular axels. Comes with bell, kick-stand, rear pannier rack and pump.
