I went on my first test ride at the weekend. All seemed to be working well apart from some problems with the front mech. I think I should be able to sort this out though, I don’t think that it is mounted on the frame low enough.
The bike rode very nicely and smoothly. I had it loaded with the four panniers and it did feel pretty heavy, mainly into the wind and up hills but it didn’t feel ungamely if there is such a word!
well that’s it from the first test ride.
