Brakes function well during bad weather.
Sturdy and reliable bike.
Requires very little maintenance when riden for commuting daily (10+ miles).
There are very few competent people who can service the gears. After 15 months I had some water penetration and had to replace the gear hub at £110.
Eight gear sometimes does not give you enough speed for the effort applied.
A good value bike for someone looking to use it for commuting but do not be surprised if other commuters leave you behind!!!
