I have been driving a Dew for 4 years and it is still running great. ONly needed new brake pads. The issue I have is that as a commuter bike it is not suitable for road imperfections. Every pot hole I hit sends a jolt thru my body. For speed though, this bike really takes you past other people on the street in the regular mountain bikes with larger tires. I am looking to upgrade my Kona for these reasons, but overall a Great bike.
