Hi all Don't get me wrong here.I love that bike but like most others who have commented on it would have some reservations about its reliability.The obvious component being the cranks.The one that stood out to me though was the dropouts.If you look at the picture there is a hole drilled beside the adjuster screw and must intersect it.This hole is only on the outside of the dropout but would surely weaken it substantially.I have ridden a frame with drilled out dropouts but the holes didn't go anywhere near the adjusters and I never felt unsafe.I am not sure how I would feel about this.Comments anyone, Geoff Duke in damp Melbourne Australia
