Very light bike and good wheels
Gears are terrible. Within a day of arrival I had to take it to a bike shop for service, the gears are still not working properly. I was told it is not good to use both big cogs at the same time, it puts too much strain on the chain! It's like buying a Bentley and the mechanic tells you not to use 3rd gear!
