I've got a Tyax Super bought in November. Done a few thousand k's since then with no problems.

The back tyre sidewall split open a while back and I've replaced the back brake pads but other than that really good.


Tyax Sport is slightly lower spec but seems to be similar except for derailers (I have x5) and hydraulic discs
