I have recently got back into bike riding again after about 6 years, the last bike I had was a 20'' wheel Raleigh Max, which I involuntary stopped riding & basically playing out altogether when I was 10 due to bullies. My old Raleigh looks very small these days & obviously I have greatly outgrown it, so after looking at a number of bikes, a visit to a bike shop & some joint thinking I convinced my parents to get me this one, top marks for the aesthetics, the frame, the frame design & colour are to die for, the tyres and suspension also merit this bike, I consider myself a 'hybrid' cyclist therefore I needed a bike that could deliver in nearly all area's and this one gives a smooth ride as well as being truly fantastic over rough/bumpy terrain. It was easy to assemble & I have experienced no problems with the twist grip gears & the breaks are also great, not to mention the quirky mudguard. Prior to it's arrival I was a bit anxious about getting this bike as I am 16 but have always been slim & petite, I am only 5'2 and for my age & gender are unlikely to grow much taller. After a few seat and handlebar adjustments I found this bike to be a great fit, I enjoy riding around on it & am overall very happy with my choice.
