I've got an used "Cyco" bicycle, orignally sold by the discounter in 2006; that the label sounds like psycho reveals either humor or ignorance . . . anyway.

It hasn't been hardly used, so it looks brand new.

It is an overcomplicated city-bike, with a lot of nifty details but aren't done really with the required care. It is like a cheap or low-cost immitate of a high end city-bike.

In particular I personaly dislike the gear change handles, you have to push multiple times to change multiple gear, there is no way to make quick changes - one button to push up one gear, another button to push down one gear. This maybe was once hype, but for me way too tricky and cumbersome - rather prefere a gear changer mounted direct at the steering bar operational with one finger.


  • cheap price
  • front hub dynamo
  • full suspension
  • double chamber wheels
  • several minutes standby white LED light at the front


  • brakes and gear changer mounted at lower part of steering bar
  • gear changer complicate and slow
  • too many points of failure (overely complicate setup)


Things were added afterward, by me or the previous owner:
  • mirror
  • toolset at the seat
  • seat cover
  • airpump


  • , supposed the manufacturer of 'Cyco' bicycles
