    New guy from Montreal

    Hi all,

    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.

    See you later!

    Welcome to Bike Forums!

    It sounds like your seller backs up their equipment, which is very nice.

    Thank you!

    I'm getting the bike tomorrow or wednesday. Taking the bus today was so "depressing" it's so painfully long... I'll let you know if the wheel update was worth it.
