      Considering it is my first bike, I managed to put it together and am happily riding it on towpaths and some road rides.
      However, when it arrived, it had neither a packing list nor the instuction on how to put it together. And, as the box was broken, i was not sure that i had everything.
    • Decent bike for the price

      I wanted a bike to potter around on - i have a road bike as well but cant carry bags when on that! This is comfy, good suspension, and does the job - all for a good price. The lights are great - love the dynamo.
    • Good quality bike for not to bad a price

      Brought this bike for my daughter who is at Oxford University and she has only given me good feedback when asked how is she getting on with the bike and the added bonus of not having to take the lights off every time she parks it up.
    • Poor quality components

      Used for 7 to 12 months
      I purchased the bike because I required a low crossbar I have had numerous problems with the gear change. The rear mudguard is to short at front and direct mud onto change cable. the sadle constantly comes loose. several other minor problems am very disappointed.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Ted,

      I'm sorry to hear about the issues you've had with this bike. I will pass these on to the product manager for the bike. In the mean time I would recommend you call your local store to let them know about the issues you have to see when is best for you to take this bike in and to see what can be fixed for you under warranty such as the saddle coming loose.
