Stan, my Solomo road bike will be sold shortly as l am due to relocate to somewhere between Penang and Bali, depending on where l find work. The front break continues to malfunction. It stays on and the bike is the worst free wheeler l have ever had. The front brake has been replaced once already, when they sent me the wrong type, and has been adjusted multiple times. It is okay for a few days after that, but then after the next rain it starts to stick on again. l will replace it one more time, but just to sell it. I can't get another brake from Solomo as they no longer build this model. l will get another bike at some stage in the future, but l want to build my own now, to get what l want, the way l want it.
Just don't buy Chinese "rip-off" junk. Sorry to say it that way, but Solomo, VISP etc just make junk.
There are some very reputable chinese frame makers, but better sourcing these direct from a known brand. Eg Giant etc.
