  1. hi it my first road bike has any one now if any thing go wrong with them so i can an eye on it :grin:

  2. I hear they are terminally slow.
  3. Their sweet spot is doing around 80km/h, they cruise at that speed.

    Going up to 100km/h starts to make it whine.

    Cruising around the streets is also good, tends to get a little hot in start stop traffic, but its quite narrow so can filter comfortably (I haven't filtered yet, working up to it)

    It gets pushed around a bit on windy gusty days, but that can be counteracted with leaning into the wind

    Haven't had anything gone wrong with it so far (only had it for 4 weeks and 1000km on the clock)

    Loving my bike =D
  4. seconded.

    Its a little slow bike, but as far as i know, so far i haven't heard of one having any catastrophic failure, you could pbly ask a british website because they have had them for years
