I bought this little greeny as a commuter, just top do 36 miles to work and back again all weather.. I never looked at it in the metal, it was bought new and cheap and has never ever let me down. I starts first time, the seat is more comfortable than i expercted, I have used it through the snow and its been great to be fair. It is what it is, cheap reliable no rust on it, (its garaged every night) and I have change the oil n plug my self 3 times in the year. £7.50 to fill it up... lasts me a fortnight for work commute. I 100% agree with your review MCN, it does need more power, I once saw 65 mph and a normal plod at 50 is ok on the back roads. dual carriageways... forget it.. no guts at all and you do feel very vulnerable due to its small stature. so, if you want a reliable go all day bike, cheap, easy to maintain and you are on the small side and don't need speed. this is a good start. i made a youtube video when i got it new ill make a new one tomorrow 1yr on.
