I've had this bike for a few weeks, and already I (no joke), get stopped by people who ask if they can check out my bike. They love the look, find it pretty light, and often guess that i spent well over $800 on the bike. Nope! Looks aside, the bike rides really well. It's light enough for me to carry up and down several sets of stairs (hello 4th floor walkup), and i go through NYC streets feeling good about the ride. Things to note:
- The seat is surprisingly not too bad (for a 10-20 mile bike ride. If you're looking to do more... perhaps a cushier seat might be better.)
- As a 5'3"'er, I did have to get a new stem for the handlebars which rest pretty low, to make it higher and more reachable, which cost around $60 bucks at a local bike shop
- The frame is shaped differently than a standard bike, so lock holders were too small to fit. I carry my lock in a bag while riding.
- The pedals are super sharp (and very stabby!) thinking of switching them out so my legs don't look like i've been beaten Other than those little things, i love that people assume i spent a pretty penny, while i'm very happy with the purchase and the ride!
