New Rear cassette and chain
3 new spokes
In the time I have had it the wheels have remained true. Have come off the bike 3 times and the bike received no major damage, couple of scuffs.
In all this bike is exemplary for commuting and would recommend it, it is quick handles well and is good value for a commuting bike. The only detractors I have is that it does not need the bar ends as a commuting bike and they have been removed on the new model. Also the brakes are not the most easily adjustable and have replaced the back one for a better version. Front one still to do.
Other than this excellent bike.
Well let me tell you about my Hybrid Comp so far.
I've had it for 9 months and so far have had to replace -
- faulty gear lever changer
- bottom bracket
- rear cassette
- rear hub
- several spokes
This bike might go like a Ferrari, but the components wear out very quickly and it is so finely tuned that it can all go out of kilter very easily without expert maintenance.
So beware - a great bike when it works, but not at all hard wearing and very high maintenance.
