it is good, apart from a really loud squeaky front brake its all good :)

the dogs got cuts and bite wounds all over but shes getting there, other dog was possibly an illegal breed and was a loose "guard dog" from a local shop, he just walked out the shop and attacked my dog, police wont do anything, dog wardens paying a visit later to check our dog then going to talk to the other dog owner, see what happens :(

just trying to get used to not slamming the brakes on and scraping my feet down the toad to stop and having so many gears is quite weird too.

i have the same bike, had it from new.

bit of a bargain at £50, to make them handle better i switched to a shorter stem, wider bars and some lighter forks.

stem and bars will get changed soon but forks are staying, deffinately a bargain at £50 could break it and sell all the bits for double what I paid, you had any issues with the rear mech hanger?
got told that they were rubbish quality and snap easily?
