    Looks like a pretty ok package. Seems to be $850 USD ATM https://www.cemoto.com/shop/.

    Pete MFQ seemed to drop the ball and didn’t do any measurements on their specifications page. Can you add in a rough seatpost low to high and from seatpost to handle bar measure when you do part 2?

    Thanks Pete. Love the blog keep up the good work.

    I have this bike in a mens and a womens. Two years now. You can`t beat this bike for the price. I use it allot off road and love it. I put a different freewheel on the back with a 34 low gear and that helps with larger hills. A good buy.
