Just a reminder , if you didn’t already know, the pedals are 1/2” unless you order some adapters to use 9/16” .

Yes thanks for the heads up on the peddle size I thought that might be the case but I wasn’t sure.

That's like the bike that I had before getting my Roll. It was a good ride and you will like it. I sold it to my neighbor two doors down, so I'll still get to see it every once in a while.
