Strengths:    Comfort, adjustability, speed

Weaknesses:    Limited manual, seat

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike! I've already put over 200 miles on it, commuting and recreational, and it's been solid and comfortable. Nice blend of comfort, speed, and style. It even handles admirably off-road, but stay out of the mud. Derailers will need adjustment after a few short rides (dont expect to find out how in the manual, though), but they'll be good for the longterm after that. Theyre cheap, but reliable. Also, after ten or so continuous miles you start feeling the seat, but it may just be me. I'll probably upgrade it. Overall, if you're you are shopping for a hybrid, this is the one.

Submitted by EZRider a Recreational Rider from Forest Hills, New York

Date Reviewed: May 7, 2000

Strengths:    Well constructed, nice steel ride, very comfortable seat, cool arched tubes, nice paint job

Weaknesses:    Acera drivetrain components

Bottom Line:   
Although the Acera drivetrain components are the cheapest of the cheap from Shimano, the bike properly set up rides very smoothly and shifts reasonably well during commuter riding and very light off road riding. The ride feel is excellent for a bike in this price category. In short, an excellent bike for what it is designed for -- casual, recreational use.
