Strengths:    easy come easy go- I say never love a bike especially if it is an urban relationship.
The most important thing in city riding is riding. This bike if stolen is just going to open the way for a new affair.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I rode this bike only once after finding it with my wife driving around at the beginning of a new year, early spring cleaning. We grabbed it, took it home and pumped up the tires. This bike from the get go was awesome. Here was the perfect city bike, after sitting in the garage since probably the early 90's every gear engaged perfectly across 24 speeds. When I got back from my short ride my partner said, "thanks for tuning it up."

Strengths:    Comfortable seat and handlebars, Grip shifters easy to use, 700C smoooth tires work fine on pavement and gravel. Looks cool.

Weaknesses:    Weight becomes noticeable during climbs. Suspension doesn't seem to do a whole lot. Over/under shifts on the rear wheel sprocket are common when using the smallest front sprocket.

Bottom Line:   
Good bike for casual riding on paved and smooth unpaved trails. Very comfortable, looks cool. Not the bike for serious riding in terms of speed or difficulty of terrain.

Suggestions for Training Camp Location near Blue Ridge Parkway

Every year, our New England-based team holds a training camp in early April. Typically we stay in Bedford, VA. However, there is not a large range of accommodations there. Typically, there are 12-16 of us, and we rent two houses for a week. One idea I had was Wintergreen, which has a ski resort, ... Read More »

Fast Blue Ridge Parkway Ride

Wasn't sure whether to put this here or in touring, but thought this would be the better crowd. It has always been a dream to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway end to end. I work a job that makes it very tough to take time off, and I am getting married next year. That essentially means I have to do it ... Read More »
