Excel Vader?

Hi i'd like to know your opinion about this bike and if anyone of you have owned it, seen it before how good is it?

Cheers

I hope you're ready for a bidding war! That's one of the most sought-after bikes on the market!

...Sam. Don't confuse the newbies. That was a jerk move.

Chrishas, I have no idea what that bike is, but it sort of looks like a POS. I'm sorry. If it's not too late, I'd try to explain you were misled online and try to get out of it.

Well I went to see it and drove it around, didn't seem to have any probs and 35 pounds for commuting to uni is not really a lot of money, i'm not gonna use it for downhill or anything extreme btw. what's a POS bike?

To be honest, I was expecting someone--anyone--else to come in & set this guy straight, but it sounds like it suits his needs so I'll continue to repress my guilt.

Chrishas, a POS bike is a bike that doesn't make you happy. If you're happy with your buy, it's not a POS.
