Good range of functions, once set up easy to use, can be placed on stem or handlebars.
Back-light is very good, you can also set it to cycle through all the functions giving you regularly updated info every few seconds.
Instructions could be clearer, you will need to read them 2 or 3 times with the item in front of you.
Don't be put off by negative reviews once set up it is excellent
I recommend this product!
I like:cycle thru function, easy to use once set up
I don't like as much:instructions could be clearer

Well made alloy pannier, black (not glossy) easily fitted although you may need to bend brackets, find other fixings but you cant have every fixing for every bike supplied.
Mine is fitted to hybrid with 700c wheels, plenty of clearance from wheels, mud guards & brakes. Lights, reflectors etc can easily be fitted to the rack.
Bags with velcro straps are easily attached on the top of the rack
I recommend this product!
I like:well made

Having researched various bikes for a couple of weeks both physically in shops & on the web I reached the conclusion that this was the bike for me.
I was looking for a hybrid that was well made & sturdy which is what I have found this bike to be, although it’s an alloy frame I felt confident it was strong & could take some stick, I weigh 118kg.
I have found the saddle to be very comfortable and along with the rest of the bike set up to my liking the ride is very good. Gears & brakes are easy to use & very effective.
The bike also comes with full size mud guards, big plus.
Overall I am very pleased
I recommend this product!
I like:well equipped, fitted mud guards
I don't like as much:none so far

I am looking at puchasing this bike, for riding about 5 miles a day(commuting for work).

I am also looking at a low maintenance bike. Does this bike fit that purpose.

Also can a panier rack be part of this bike.
Like any bike maintenance is a must although I have not found this cycle to need to much, parts are readily available & inexpensive.

I have a BikeHut alloy pannier rack fitted a good match, easily fitted
