I'm sure it will be, hear a lot of good things about their bikes, this is the "problem" I got caught out in the rain a few weeks back, just wanted too keep the bike dry... Weren't worried about myself- but I will prob use it in the winter too, what harm can it do ??

Fingers crossed for Monday maybe the weather will change, I'd rather keep it dry but I'm sure it will be fine as long as I dry it on my return

I'd ask for a discount or some freebies for dicking you about, or you'll take your money elsewhere. Wink

Took it out for a blast today only to find out I couldn't get the full range of gears, so I'm taking it back for them to sort but the time in the saddle I had was very enjoyable and so much faster than the mtb I all so felt confident clipped in!

A little set back but I will not be put off
