The rear luggage rack of the 51 cm does not allow securing of the rear light with two nuts. There is not enough room to secure both nuts. The rear rack of the 51cm is different then that of the 41 cm bike. I did not have that problem on the 45cm bike. I traded the 45cm in for a 51cm. Identical bikes except for the rear luggage rack. I had to replace the stock 9" 27mm seat post with a 14" 27mm stem. I purchased the 14" stem thru Walmart for about $10 with sh. If you have no problem with one screw and nut supporting the rear light to the luggage rack, and the stock 9" seat post, you will be very happy with the the TOUR DE FRANCE ADVANTAGE PRO 51CM TREKKING BIKE.
I was looking for a 700c bike with fenders I could ride to work and for the unexpected bad weather and puddles on the rail trail. I believe this bike will do the job. One of the fenders was damaged during fedex shipping but I called distributed and they said they would send replacement parts right out. Bike has a good manual for assembly and adjusting all parts except rack and lights. They were easy to put on though. Frame is aluminum and very light. Gears are not high quality and don't always change crisply like my Trek. However, for a third of the price I'm satisfied with the initial quality and response from distributer. By the way, the manual was all English and no other language. Go USA!
