As long as it's old skool and you enjoy riding it the that's all that matters. It is at the entry end so you know it has limitations but it is a bike....2 wheels, pedals and it goes and if it works for you and puts a smile on ya mush then why not
Don't worry about the elitist snobbery that happens a lot in here.... Even the most up themselves label snobs can be very helpfull
Its the bike we're criticising here not the members.
These are the sort of bikes that give cycling a bad name as a whole, cheap nasty BSOs that can still be found today in supermarkets, cheap, plain bad facsimiles of better models.
Its only just now that the tide is slowly, and I mean slowly turning against these sort of bikes - people are finally realising that you have to spend money to get a decent bike.
Even in the Retrobike world, a bad bike is still a bad bike even if it is still shiny - that bike is made using the bare minimum to pass any safety standard of the day and to generate as much profit as possible. It probably only survives because, as with many bikes like this, it was ridden a few times and the owner though 'gawd, this is awful' and left it in the garage.
Its not elitism or snobbery, there are many halfway decent bikes to be had, even for the 30 quid you spent on this.
Its a shame these bikes ever existed as they give such a bad reputation to cycling as a whole.
