So today I collected my new bike. I'm sure it's not an amazing bike in comparison to the pro bikes that some people here certainly have. But I really like it so far. I think it's what you'd call a hybrid bike.
I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this bike, has an opinion on it, etc.
I'm in Japan, so I'm not certain if this model is specific to Japan or is just generally available everywhere. When I Google search the bike the results all seem to be on Japanese websites or in some way Japan related.
Anyway. I've just broken it in and had a quick seven mile ride home from the shop, it felt great. Very smooth gear changes, light frame, great brakes and generally very solid feeling.
It comes only with a bell, so I bought lights and had a rack put on it. I bought a nice set of waterproof ortlieb panniers and a waterproof iPhone holder for the handlebars. I really enjoyed the ride home.
So does anyone have any thoughts on the bike?
