Are you really really really sure?I mean REALLY sure. Cos it looks like most of us . Well.Most of us are just a tiny bit.No ,make that a hell of a lot unsure.We are sure. But not in the same way.I would give it time before buying. A long time. If you are very lucky it will pass with no harm done. Sorry!

Isn't it just a standard sized bike with 24in wheels? So arguably less bike for the money.

I remember this configuration being all the rage with hipster riders not too long ago

I suppose it would make an ideal bike if you single speeded it and rode behind a derny!

Or into a skip, delete as appropriate :roll:
