Pros: everything!
Cons: worrying someone will steal my treasure!
" I bought this to replace my ancient and very worn out ladies cycle. Couldn't afford to buy another from that particular manufacturer, and until I win the lottery I doubt I could justify the money!
I've had the Real Classic for about 6 months now and I've ridden it many times, including on several 20 - 25 mile rides with no problems. I can't believe how lucky I am to be the owner of this excellent bike.
Its good looking, comfortable, sturdy and performs very well on the road, bowling along so lightly. I only wanted a 3 speed bike and am quite happy with the gentle cycling I do - not into lycra yet! My Pashley was 3-speed, and a hybrid bike I bought (big mistake - I only kept it a couple of months) had 18 gears which were more trouble than they were worth. I spent more time sitting on the side of the road trying to untangle them than actually riding the bike! The Real Classic 3 speed gears are nice and chunky and so far in the 6 months and many happy miles covered, I've not had to fiddle with them once.
I like the back carrier, one of the sturdiest I've ever seen and have a top box on it which carries everything I need to take on a morning's cycle ride out into the country.
Nice saddle, so much more comfortable than those crippling modern things, nice chunky bell, nice uncomplicated bike overall.
It puts a smile on my face every time I ride it and I find myself smiling and saying hello to everyone I meet - who'd have thought a simple bike could do that?
Great bike, very pleased with it. "

Pros: a solid straightforward machine
Cons: very upright riding position
" This bike is absolutely fine. You honestly get what you pay for. My old shopping bike was crushed in an accident by a careless car driver and this is a perfect replacement. I use it for shopping and short trips around town. I would not use it for longer trips as it is quite low geared so takes a while to get anywhere compared to my ancient 12 speed racing bike. But as an everyday mount that you just grab and go it is fine. I had it delivered to my home and assembly was straightforward but I needed to use my own tools as the ones supplied are insufficient. Probably best to get it built in store if you are not confident. It came covered in cardboard and plastic but was still a bit scratched so not quite immaculate. The riding position is very upright. This is a real 'sit up and beg' machine and it takes a little getting used to as the steering feels very light. My teenage son struggles with it whereas he used to happily use my old shopper for his paper round. But I think it is comfortable and very pleasant to ride. The build quality is just what you would expect for the price, nothing exceptional but it all works and, if looked after, should last pretty well. For people who use or remember Sturmey Archer gears the gear change is a disappointing plastic affair but it works fine and the hub quality is great with very easy shifting between ratios. "
