Why did I buy this bike?

Very simple really: for the money you can’t get a better one!

Of course you have to look after it yourself, so you have to be prepared and able to do the maintenance and servicing yourself, but if you have a bit of knowledge about mechanics and bikes, this is not so difficult.

If you look at the spec and the price you won’t find a better bike.

Apart from the price / quality comparison, the Nerve is a really good all rounder. A central position gives excellent uphill and downhill stability combined with superb handling.
