"Awesome! For a modest upgrade you might avoid the broken frames/spokes. Could prove less expensive over time."
Am looking into it at the moment. Tired of repairs :-) I must admit however Magna bikes has been great - they have a lifetime warranty on their frames so haven't paid for anything and they send a new bike
Actually only two frames as I think through the sequence. Probably partly my fault, I have to have the seat fairly high and it puts more stress on things I think due to the angle when up that high. Going to give them a break (pun not intended) this time and buy a replacement before this one breaks.
"Gone over to electric bikes." that is a winner, but I do it for exercise and don't think the effort/benefit would pencil out.
