Why? If you're asking yourself why, then you probably haven't read from
the beginning, long term sufferers probably realise that I have some
kind of strange addiction to bikes from what you might call the cheaper
end of the spectrum. I really have no idea what draws me to the cheaper
end, but something does! As you probably know, this isn't my first Daewoo Genius, I've looked at them before when I've seen them out and about, and always thought that I'd quite like one, I think that it's the frame that draws me in.
It looks pretty similar to my previous encounter with a Daewoo Genius, except for the colour, some of the parts, and I don't remember this little sticker on the last one. I find myself wondering if the previous one was an earlier model, and perhaps not built to quite the same standard? Who knows, and frankly who cares as long as it rides well enough, and stays together under my lardy arse! Like before, I don't think that it's a bad bike, but like so many bikes that are cheaply produced its a heavy bike, but as you know I kinda like bikes like that.
I bought this bike for a little project that I have been trying to keep at the back of my mind for far too long now. However upon starting the project I soon came to realise that this particular bike, or to be more precise, the frame, was not suitable for what I had in mind. So another bike, the Peugeot Swan 20 was purchased to take its place as it was found to be more suitable. I thought about putting this straight back on fleabay, but the thing is that all in all I'm quite happy with the Daewoo Genius, Although I think that some fettling may be required.
Yep, you've got to hand it to them, somewhere at Daewoo, some genius thought this was a great name for a bike! A different kind of bicycle company? That'll be the Daewoo!
