  • Inner tube size for this bike?

    Ram (United Kingdom)
    Used for 7 to 12 months
    Hi! what is the inner tube size for this bike. I need to buy the inner tube and I am from the UK.

  • Comfortable ride

    Andrew (United Kingdom)
    Used for 7 to 12 months
    This is a really practical and comfortable bicycle. It has everything for the easy ride around town or out on trails. The only negative is the rear light is flimsy. Mine has never worked so I have added a light for safety.
  • Disappointing

    Pedro (United Kingdom)
    Used for 1 week or less
    Lights stopped working within 3 days as the cables become easily loose. Also had a flat tyre in less than a week. Overpriced and poor quality overall

  • 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.

    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    Bought for canal cycles and commuting. Not an experienced cyclist but much better than my last bike. Suits me and enjoy cycling on it.
