1) This is large Bicycle, 28 inches. 2) This is very light, much lighter than expected, Electra Dutch Royal 6061-aluminum. 3) Rear hub: Shimano Nexus 3-speed: This is what makes this bike so very cool, unlike the proverbial "Ten Speed" which requires you to remember to down shift (If you can) before stopping, or take off in the gear you stopped with. The Nexus 3-speed allows you to shift up or down smoothly, even when you are stopped. You come to a relaxed stop, Click, Click and take off in first. Since it is built into the hub, maintenance, and chain oil are minimal. If you have the Dinaro, it comes in 5,8. and 11 speeds. Three is all I need though. 4) It looks much better than the images in person, the seat, and handle grips are very nice, and giving the bike a classic look. 5) The back wheel brake is inside the Nexus 3-speed, so the back brake is old school where you back pedal, much smoother, safer, and really takes the stress of the bike as rear hand can get out of line and shake the bike, or weather can render them useless. So........ If you would rather ride without your stuck up in the air, and want a high quality looking, crafted, and painted bike for exercise, or just groove'n around, this is a very good choice.
I love the placement of the pedals and the seat. I also enjoy the unique accessories.
