Hi all. Just taken my Kathmandu for its first ride. First impressions are great. Found it harder work on the flats than I thought it would as I was cycling at 17 odd mph. Felt it as I am an unfit 17 stone 57 year old . Had two 11% hills on the route which the bike absolutely blitzed. Brakes obviously need bedding in as no great bite yet. Jumps gears on the bottom two gears which I presume would be an easy adjustment. Oh and bell not not supplied. All in all very impressed.
