      Purchased this bike a month ago and put 300 miles on it so far. I tried other brands from Specilized and Jamis but this one seemed the best value. It handles both paved and gravel roads well. The carbon fork makes a big difference in comfort and increasing road smoothness. I did not think that that the 27 speeds would make a difference over a 24 speed, but the different gear ratios are huge on the 27 speed, increasing speed and climbing ease. I'm an old man but still average 13-15 mph on my 15 mile rides.

      Very, Very Good

      About Me

      Comments:

      I bought this bike and ended up having to knock off 14 miles on it. I rarely cycle and when I do we're talking maybe 4 miles round trip. Bike was a life saver, seat, handlebars and speed were all good. I even went "cross country" on it trying to shorten my trip. I'm still pretty amazed by the bike, thus this review.

        This bike is a workhorse. I am a big guy (250lbs) and my bike needs to be able to take a beating. This bike accelerates quickly, handles climbs well, and is still fairly lightweight for a bike at this price. I don't see myself needing another commuter/exercise bike for a very long time. I would have given it 5 stars, but my breaks started to squeal after about 100 miles and my local bike shop couldn't stop it so they replaced the whole break. Other than that one issue, I feel like I found a steal with this bike.

          I GOT THIS BIKE LAST WEEK I WAS ONLY ABLE TO TAKE A SHORT 4 MILE RIDE BUT I LOVED IT. RIDES SMOOTHER AND A LOT FASTER THAN MY MTN BIKE.

            Just got the bike last weekend. Total joy to ride. Smooth and very responsive. I was able to go much further and faster than my old bike. Highly recommended.

              Comfortable but quick. Quality but not expensive. Big range of gears, strong brakes. It's alot of bike for the money.
