Nothing wrong with the frame design, they serve a purpose.

A couple of years ago on a holiday trip, there was nothing else available at a bike rental shop, so that's what we rented. We needed the bikes for our local transport (groceries, sightseeing, getting to the beach etc). They were not very well maintained bikes, pretty much everything needed adjusting (3-speed gears, bottle generators etc). But they got us where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go. Our longest day trip was in the 50 km range.

Riding position is usually a bit too upright to my taste, for 30km round trip daily commuting. But I admit I haven't looked into them closely enough to see if they could be adjusted for a better fit.
