I'm a 54 year old male and I got a new bike last october. Although I do not bike in the winter, I'm well on the way of making biking a way of life, weather permitting.
Currently I use the bike to go to work, in total 20 km a day. I'm using a Linus Roadster Sport large frame, olive color. It's a pretty good bike, fully equiped and good value for the money. The Shimano 3 internal hub is very good and smooth, yet when climbing it's best to stop pedaling on speed change to avoid a rough stepdown. I've had back to back broken spokes on the rear wheel which also punctured the tubes, three times in one month. The seller agreed to replace the wheel and spokes for sturdy ones for the cost of labour only.
