Novara Safari

Sorry if this is a question asked way too much but I'm just about to buy this bike and wanted some personal opinions. It seems like a good deal at $600 US.

I've been happy with mine. I've had it about 18 months and have been using it as a commuter bike (~9.5 miles RT). I've only done "weekend" type tours so far. It's a tad bit heavy for a commuter bike but it's sturdy (which was what I was looking for).

have mine since august. good price for the components. I have had 3 flats in 4 weeks so I changed the tires out. everything else is good, also added a kickstand.
don't see it online right now, are you able to pick up at a store? new models will be 700c.
