    No reviews? Sun Atlas (not cargo, not trike)

    Trying to figure out if one of these might be a good replacement for my lemon Giant, but I can't find any reviews.
    Right now I have a Giant Simple 3, but the dropouts are soft aluminum and forward and flat with the ground; the thing started pulling out of the dropouts inside of the first month and have defied all reasonable attempts to correct it, as well as snapping through spokes like mad. I ended up having to use a bolted on steel retaining plate and one of the Worksman moped wheels - which immediately rusted to the point that it now eats tubes. The LBS I go to now is moving to a larger shop and planned to order something like this or this. I can't find anything on it beyond the catalog entry though; the reviews are for the LWB cargo version. Does anyone have any experience with these?

    Hi there,
    I own the regular Sun Atlas Cruiser, not the X-Frame. I can tell you that it is the smoothest riding bike. The crank action when pedaling
    feels so nice. It is a Heavy bike. Very comfortable to ride and durable. Thick 12 Guage Spokes.

    What sort of gearing, and is there any maintenance quirks?

    The single speed gearing is a 42 tooth front chain ring and 19 tooth rear sprocket.
    It's been maintenance free, other than oiling the chain every six months.
