Just picked up the Christiania from Landry's on Comm Ave.
Initial impressions are very good - they gave it a general once-over, replaced the worn rear tire, and overhauled the hub.
Also a new chain and cog to make the hills easier.
For $150 all in, it certainly came in much cheaper than i'd expected!
One issue seems to have persisted: the noise from the coaster brake. I noticed it almost immediately andcalled the shop. They told me it should go away after a couple days . I hope so - neither the girls nor I could tolerate it!
Overall, though, Landry's was great to deal with; everyone in the service dept was really helpful and friendly - which is an unfortunate rarity.
When I picked it up, one mechanic piped up wih "that bike has captured the hearts and imaginations of everyone here!" Nice.
