Had a friend who bought one of those. We were young teens at the time and we thought "Panasonic? .... They make electronics, they're not a bike company." But it seemed to be a solid machine and he liked it.

Interesting. The resistance tests seem rather unscientific, but the overall review wasn't a bad read, and was informative.

I do have to wonder about the apparently German brakes he refers to.
In search of what to search for.
