The looks of the bike are great.

I didn't want to spend a lot of money and I figured I could slowly upgrade the parts as time and money permitted.

I used to be a really avid cyclist and still own a couple of very expensive bikes that were pretty good 20 years ago. I decided to get back into cycling but wanted a simpler approach to cut down on maintenance and to really get back to the basics of cycling with a coaster bike. The whole idea of less fiddling around with the bike, and spending more time riding was what drew me to this type of bike.

I started looking at cruisers but wanted something more agile. I didn't want to spend a lot of money and I figured I could slowly upgrade the parts as time and money permitted. So I started looking online at bikes in the $150-$200 range but most of them came with hand brakes that I would just take off anyway. So I decided on the Retrospec Siddhartha because even though it was a little more money, it looked good, had just the type of features I was looking for, and the components seemed like they might be a little better quality and maybe I wouldn't have to start upgrading parts right away.

So the box arrives and it has a few punctures in it. The bike and parts are well wrapped and zip tied together, but then they're just left to flop around in the box. So the holes in the box were from the contents slamming against the sides in transit. Not from being impaled by something else. Remarkably, the parts were in good shape once I removed everything from the box. I bought the large frame in black, and everything looked pretty sharp. But what's up with the "leather" handgrips and seat? I wasn't really expecting real leather on a $300 bike, but why lie about it? Call it what it is, Fake simulated leather, faux leather, or leather-like. The seat didn't look too bad, but the grips look like something off of some toddlers Wild-West themed tricycle. Those gotta go.

I ordered the Siddhartha from Amazon in Chrome, in large (57cm), and am pretty happy with the purchase. I am 5'10", with longish arms and legs, and it fits me pretty well. It is fun to ride, and looks very sharp in chrome.

It arrived wihtout directions, but it was mostly assembled, so you don't really need instructions to put on the front wheel, seat, pedals, and handlebars. It arrived in good shape, with no scratches or dings, and the wheels were pretty much in true.

I really enjoy riding it, as it is relatively light for being hi-ten, and has a nice gear ratio that permits me to ride fairly fast around town, but I am still able to handle the few small hills nhear me out of the saddle without loosing much speed.

As mentioned, it looks very nice in chrome, and the white rims and crank add a little more visual interest, as do the fake leather seat and handles. Personally, I think this is a really special bike for the price if you go with the chrome, but if you are considering it in a painted color finish, then the Windsor Essex over at bikesdirect.com is a better value IMHO, since they are similarly featured, but the Essex is Chromo instead of Hi-Ten, and only costs $229 with free shipping. However, the gearing on the Siddhartha is a little more aggressive than the Essex, which is another reason I went with the Siddhartha -- that, and the chrome finish.

The only mods I will be doing out of the gate are replacing the handgrips with better quality grips., The cheap stock grips are really spongy and the fake leather covering is pretty thin, so I think they will get thrashed pretty quickly. I may eventually change out the seat as well, and perhaps replace the stock upright bars with something more interesting and fun.

One of the first things that persuaded me to buy this bike was the Free Amazon Prime 2-day shipping. It was convenient and I wanted it as fast as possible. It is very easy to assemble with the proper tools (a set of assorted allen keys, pedal wrench, and air pump which you can buy at a local bike shop) However, when I pumped the tires and was riding out on the street I noticed that the front tire bulged and there was a little wobble. I think it might have happened during shipping since it was a pretty large package it would be susceptible to anything. I called customer service which is listed in their website [...] and it was picked up on the second ring. I described to them what happened and they were very apologetic and had asked me to email them photos to confirm the damage. After I had sent them the photos they had sent replacement parts later that day. The service was prompt and they were very helpful. This is the real deal. All the other reviews are only saying oh this is really great bike and such but I was really impressed with with how they handled this situation.

Another thing too. Just to note that this is a back pedal break (That means that in order to break you have to pedal backwards). Just as a caution to those used to having back and front wheel breaks. I might possibly add front wheel break as an extra safety. I am still getting used to using my weight to break.

Overall simple and elegant chrome bike. Love the brown saddle and handlebars. Love the deep v white rims. Now the next challenge is to keep it locked nicely so no one steals this.
