Strengths:    Like when you were a kid, and a bike was a bike - not a road or mountain or whatever bike! Go for a ride, sit up and have a look around. Nice to have a good rack that fits. Disc and drum brakes mean no gritty pads chewing up the rims.

Weaknesses:    Bit heavy, and rear wheel removal is a challenge (internal-gear hub.)

Bottom Line:   
A great, quality bike for climbing on and RIDING. Handles well, nice gear range. No cleats or lycra required - just enjoy the ride. This is what I ride almost all the time now.

Favorite Ride:   With the kids

Price Paid:    $1050.00

Purchased At:   Ajo Bike

Similar Products Used:   Road, mountain, recumbent, etc. etc. bikes.

Bike Setup:   I added a computer (and a Ti bottle cage just for laughs.) Rack trunk and kick stand - too bad they're not cool, they're super useful. One of these days I'll add mudguards (ditto).

Strengths:    Great frame and great detail, the folks at Burley are also wonderful if you have questions or need help.

Weaknesses:    A little heavy and a little slow up hills going into a head wind, but that could just be me?

Bottom Line:   
Wow, I looked all over the place for a standard communter type bike, I found some really great bikes, but Way outside my price randge, the Burley fit the bill, and, I like the look of single speed bikes, and the Burley has a great look, because of the rear hub is an internal 7 speed.
