Great bike for casual riding with the family. Smooth gear shifting for hills and the shocks work great for light dirt riding. Perfect for one who likes to ride and want comfort over the street. I had a GT dirt bike and it was very stiff. It was great in the dirt but I ride more on city streets. I got this bike and really enjoy the front shocks in the spring seat post. Its really a comfortable ride and is fast but flexible. For the price, this is really a good city bike.

I am 58 and have degenerative disc disease. I can't bend over and must sit up-right. This bike is great. I have been on a lot of paved bike trails as well as the Orlando Wetlands Center, many State Parks, and the Merritt Island Wildlife Drive with absolutely no discomfort. The front shocks and large seat make for a wonderful ride. I added a rear carrier for my 12 lb. photo tripod, and use the bike to get to photo locations that I would otherwise have to hike to. The bike fits perfectly in my small Focus Station Wagon and has added so much fun and adventure back into my life. [...]
