Vaughany - if you want to look ally at university, getting a green bike isn't a good way.
A mate of mine had one - it was a poor design, overly heavy, badly made, poor, outdated components. In fact I've just had another look at their website - barely a Halfords Â£129.99 special as far as componentry goes - you could get a good bike for the Â£700 they want!
