As stated, does anyone know of any new NE-5's available? I live in Jacksonville, Fl. (northeast Fl) and am looking for a 24 inch bike in either yellow or green. I am willing to travel 3-4 hundred miles to pick it up. After reading about some of the issues with the Ambassador and the possibility of the same issues with the new NE-R, I may just go ahead with the NE-5. Any opinions or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, George Oller.
