I own/have owned many Novara bikes. My Safari has prolly close to 10k miles and has been through every kind of weather,hauled heavy grocery loads,and did time getting abused as a polo bike. It has been absolutely stone ax reliable. I would put them up against any other brand. My one and only complaint with the company has been their use of straight blade alloy forks on some models which give a terrible ride,but I ride crap roads and have mild carpel tunnel so YMMV.
