Really smooth ride. Classic design. I get lots of compliments. On the downside, it’s a bit heavier than some. Wish the step through was lower, too. I’m older, and have to angle the bike down toward the pavement to mount. But all in all, I’m really happy with this purchase.
Love this bike, but I had to wait for months to order it and even then the color I wanted wasn’t available. Assembly was a little more difficult than it needed to be, but in the end I’m really looking forward to riding this cute bike.
Received my new bike, husband assembled it and everything looks great.. been riding her for couple weeks and just this evening ride I heard noise coming from gears. Husband said he will look into it. Probably just needs tightening. Hopefully nothing serious. I get a lot of compliments. This bike gives me comfortable ride. Thanks Retrospec!!!
I absolutely love my new bike! I got the Venus 7 step thru city bike in eggshell, 42cm and it is exactly what I was looking for. I am 5'2" and it fits me perfectly. I like that it is very adjustable so the handlebars and seat can be positioned for my short legs and arms! It rides very nicely and has the right amount of gears for me as I only tend to ride around town and on mostly flat bike paths. It looks lovely as well! I have had so many compliments. Very happy that I went with this one:-)
The bike is very nice looking and there are a lot of features to choose from. The fenders need to be precisely adjusted and tightened so that they do not rub the tires. The light seems to be a delicate plastic. I did not install it. Smooth ride. Nice brakes. Smooth shifting.
