Received bike 2 days ago, unboxed, unfolded, inflated tires, everything in good condition, easy to unfold & assemble. One minor glitch, front plastic reflector broken so contacted Yan who is sending a new one to me. Next day went over bike to finish checking tightness, adjusted one brake pad a bit to line up better with wheel rim, went for a short ride. Took bike for a better ride today, just over 12 miles. I'm currently in the Florida keys so yes it is flat. I'm 66 about 175 lbs, have not ridden a 2 wheeler in quite some time, previously had a couple of tricycles I used down here (over a year ago), rode an Azub mostly. The obvious, I've got to get used to the seat on the 2 wheeler vs. the comfort of the trike. Initial ride today was at least as fast as my usual on the trike, about 10-11 mph. I should be able to improve that a bit as I get in better biking form. So far I'm very pleased as the bike was easy and quick to get going. The components look to be of good quality, the brakes work well and it shifts easily. I've added to bottle cages, have a seat gel pad coming to see how that works. Don't see how it could have been any easier to unbox and adjust. Excellent value for the money when compared to the competition (recognizing that my info is from research onthe internet and reviews as there are no actual bikes or dealers in this area). Bottom line, I'm very satisfied.
