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.
I'd say go for it as similar user. Maintenence- no suspension forks and straightforward components
Had a Bikehut rack (floating) fitted on purchase - fine so far for a single pannier, including riding on relatively poor surfaces on Milton Keynes redways (cycle paths)
