So I spent my tax return on a SOHO S because i wanted to start commuting to work. This was kind of foolish because I hadn't ridden a bike in a long time but the ride hasn't been hard and the gearing ends up being just fine.
However, I was very disappointed in the construction of the bike. The handlebars keep slipping, i've had to take them off and re-tighten them twice already. My rear rack is only 1/2 connected because the brakes have been placed in just such a way that you can't screw anything into the left side mount point. The bike already rattles too (and its not the rack). Also, because of my sillyness in buying a single speed I'm not inclined to ever make a long trip.
In short, I plan to keep bike commuting, but I want to unload this Soho asap to put towards getting something more practical and hopefully a little more sturdy.
