    • Good bike, terrible tires

      Cláudio (United Kingdom)
      Used for 3 to 6 months
      This bike is overall very good! It needs some proper fine tuning in the first month of use but after that, it holds well.
      I use it for work/home commute.
      The only major complain to be made is about the tires.
      I feel that, for a touring bike, the tires that come with this bike are terrible: they quickly show fissures with the temperature changes (that are normal in Oxford); and they are simply not suitable to drive over broken glass (which is also common in Oxford)
      As a result, in the 4 months I've used the bike, I've had to repair a puncture tire 3 times now.
      And don't even think that this is caused by the same piece of glass that got stuck in the tire the first time. Both the front and bike tires have had punctures, and these have not occurred in quick succession.
      I'm now going to buy some anti puncture strips in the hope that I don't have to throw these tires to the trash.
      My advice to someone with more money and less patience: buy a good pair of tires (ones that are actually city worthy, and puncture resistant) when buying this bike.

      Bought for canal cycles and commuting. Not an experienced cyclist but much better than my last bike. Suits me and enjoy cycling on it.

    • Love my bike

      Karen (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I love my bike, it is solid and sturdy and a joy to ride. The ability to adjust the handlebars means I'm not bent over so I avoid a sore neck. It is a good compromise between a mountain bike and a Dutch bike, comfortable to ride but with the gear range available to enable steep hills with ease. Very pleased with my purchase.
    • Cycle touring holidays since 2008. V happy.
