Maintenance is something to also take into consideration. Make sure to have some chain lube and WD-40 for cleaning the chain and lubing moving parts on your bike.
The overall cost of the bike + extra equipment (Front and back lights, tyre-pump, lock cell-phone holder and a small bell was around 130 EUR which is still an amazing price. But without the extras and buying just the pump and the lights would still be UNDER 100 EUR.
