I have so far ridden for just a couple of miles to the local bike shop to get the brakes adjusted. I like the sturdy feel of the ride and the range of gearing, although changing up requires rather too much effort. I dread having to take off the rear wheel though - and the local bike shop doesn't have any experience in hub gears and doesn't want to learn. The fold is quick and easy, although not particularly small. Nevertheless, the bike appears to be well made and built to last, so I am looking forward to many years of fun.
