Positives
+ Good value for money
+ Tiagra / 105 combo is smooth and reliable


Negatives
- Online store, I should have gone up to the next frame size up (my fault not cellbikes)
- Stock tyres ok but got multiple punctures in 400kms


Additional notes
From stock all I have changed is the tyres from the paper thin tyres to Serfas Survivor S & the saddle to a WTB Pure V.

Reccomendation
Overall I am very happy with the bike, having now completed over 1000kms on it in 7 weeks I am very happy.
My next bike will likely be a cellbikes dropbar with Ultergra .. but I'll make sure I get the right sized frame. 8)
