Strengths:    Flawless operation, great shifting, what else can I say.

Weaknesses:    None as of yet.

Bottom Line:   
I am writing this as a follow up to my last review. It is the end of the season here, and I have 1102 miles on the bike. It preformed flawless! I can not say enough about the bike, or the people at Cycle Sales in Boardman, Ohio. I added a lot of extras to the bike, to make my riding better. I am replacing the Nashbar Rodeo pedals with something that will work for me, and I am going to put new tires on it (300 lbs will ware out anything in a hurry), but that is all I plan on doing to the bike except for maintenance. I am very confident every time I get on the bike.

Strengths:    Comfortable. Versatile. Does great even or dirt or gravel roads.

Weaknesses:    A little heavy. Does not do well at tight maneuvering.

Bottom Line:   
I was mainly looking for a bike to run errands around town (save gas). This bike is perfect for that. It does great on the rough city streets. It is comfortable and fun to ride.

Strengths:    Shifts positive, handles well, feels good on the road. I can’t say enough about this bike, or Boardman Cycle Sales.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
What a great bike! I looked at a bunch of bikes before I found this one. It is a 21 speed, with a great low climbing gear. I am mostly a recreational rider, so go fast, go far is not a big deal with me. I have over 450 miles on it now, with the longest sustained ride of 40 miles. Works like a dream. No problems what so ever.

Replaced the suspension seat post, and seat, but this was a personal preference
I replaced the pedals with Nashbar Rodeo pedals (not the best choice, but they are ok for now)
I added just about every toy you could to a bike (handlebar bag, cyclometer, 2 water bottle racks, saddle tool bag, emergency pump, LED front and rear lights, and a “T” bar that I mounted on my stem to hold the light under the bag, clip in pedals.

Paradise/Tiburon loop

Does anyone know if the road is opened back up on the paradise/tiburon loop? It used to be closed but you could still ride through it, but last time I tried it (about a week ago) it was really closed - with a sign that said 'no bikes' and everything...Read More »
