I wanted to try a 'bent - one of those things on those awful "bucket lists" SO -
I got it for $350. I rode it quite easily - no problem woth balance. Even though I (used to be) 6' tall, I have very short legs, and even with the seat all the way forward I stretch quite a bit. I can pedal, but my leg is at full extension. Don't know if that is a problem or correctable - or perhaps that is normal.
In any event, it is quite usable, and I will enjoy learning on it. I figure I won't have any trouble with a reasale for about what I purchased it for, so I will be out very little if I don't like it.
Now - tubes, chain care - do they wear out fast? etc.!! I will try and find a manual online.
