What a bike!

The bike was recommended by staff and I'm so glad I took the advice and went ahead with it. It was a M/L and I'm 5' 11 - 6ft tall with a 32" inside leg and it's perfect. The bike feels so comfortable and once tweaked a bit perfect for my commute. It's light and I'm getting some of my quickest rides on it. It flys up the hills, feels great out the saddle and I'm totally happy with it. The spec is great, from the 105 gears to the giant wheels etc I can't fault anything and plus it's got the capability to fit mudguards. Everything was set up well and all I did was greased the usual bits and straightened the bars. I must say the service received from tredz was brilliant, from the advice, cycle to work and the delivery. I couldn't fault them.
