Bike is just as in the picture: girly and beautiful, but too heavy (I have to carry the bike in and out the house everyday) and therefor also slower. Self-assembling is not a good idea if you have no idea how to do it.
Since new it makes a very annoying noise when switching above the 3rd gear. I even took it to a bike shop and they couldn't figure out what it was (I thought it was the assembling, but they adjusted everything and still couldn't get rid of the noise. After 5-6 months the plastic piece that holds the front mudguard into place broke.
I also learned front baskets are not practical. When you load it you lose a bit of control.
On the other hand it's very comfortable and pretty and apart from the above I haven't had any issues with the bike. I guess I'd go for a lighter/faster bike now, but if you just want it for week-end rides or short city rides it's ok.
