Price: $369

This bike was my introductory bike to riding and at $369 with the intent of using it for local paved trail riding for simple recreation it has well exceeded the type of riding it was intended to do.

I used this bike for over 3 years and put thousands of miles on her. Although the components are low end and its crankset and chain are in need of replacement, this bike still carries me with ease over the steepest of hills shifting like a charm. I would highly recommend this bike to anyone who likes to do recreational riding and even long distance tours. I would not recommend it to a racer or someone who is looking for speed. Although I got great speed and comfort from the bike it simply is not designed for racing and multi-day tours so at the end of these rides the body knows a road bike would have been more appropriate. The bike is extremely comfortable. Has 3 rings in the front for those extra granny gears and adjusts with ease with a quick seat release, and flex-bar for the perfect fit for its rider. Great beginner bike for someone just not sure how far they want to go with their riding.
