On the whole I'm very pleased with the bike, its exactly what I wanted in terms of style and upright riding position. The little basket is excellent for transporting all your stuff and the design of the bike means you can ride in normal clothing, good for those using it for commuting as I do. It is however, heavy. I wouldn't recommend it for any rough terrain or steep inclines or anywhere you might need to lift or carry it any distance. But on the road it's great. And don't be put off by the comments that its hard to assemble. Admittedly the instructions are not the best (actually the ones I got were for a completely different bike!) but its fairly obvious how to assemble it, it can be done with the 2 tools provided and I managed it unassisted in about 30 minutes(and I'm a girl)
I bought this bike for my daughter who had just started her college back in September. She already has other bikes (X-country, BMX) but was rather reluctant to be seen on them when going to college. Unless it is too icy to ride on the road, she now proudly rides to her college on a daily basis. She is specially fond of her front basket and loves shows off her folders. As you probably guessed, these days she always volunteers to pop to the local shop to pick a pint of milk or weekend papers.
The bike itself feels a bit heavier than I had expected, however, 6 gears are sufficient for short leasurely commutes or shopping trips. The saddle height is easily adjustable to fit inside leg heights from 26" to 32". It is too early to comment on the reliability and durability of the parts. However, the bike feels strong and stable for general riding. The paint work looks very well done and is very easy to clean. Only small defect I found was that the front mud guard began to lean towards left and started to rub against the wheel after few weeks. It was easily fixed after adjusting the retaining bolts and screws.
I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is looking for a pretty looking, comfortable, short-commute or leasure bike. It has worked magic for my young adult daughter to encourage cycling again.
I ordered this bike for getting to and from work , chose this bike because I liked the look of it , just had my first go on it and it rides like a dream. Very very happy no problems with changing gears seat comfortable . I would highly recommend this bike . I have always shopped at Amazon with no problems apart from one and they dealt with it promptly by reimbursing me my money back .
made up with my new bike instructions not to clear but got there in the end thanks so much quick service really polite when they ran to arrange my arrival I'm in a bike club i know when they see mine they will want one thank you xxx
The vacuum cleaner does exactly what I wanted. I do find it heavy to lift though and to store. The bags are super and hold loads and are so easy to change. I do feel that it is not the easiest vacuum for older people thandle. It is the only vac to handlle cold ash from my fire. I have tried purpose made ash vacs and they are useless. Henry makes no fuss so long as the ash is not too large.
