Strengths:    Well built bike. Won't find the quality at Wallmarts. The Sram Dual Drive is excellant and will let you shift while sitting still. Great when caught at light in a high gear. Front suspension and shock in seat post. Kenda 195/26" tires are flatproof, and after 6 years and over 6000 miles still look new and never a flat.

Weaknesses:    As a comfort bike it is great, limited top speed. Can still climb steep hills sitting down. Geared low enough to do wheelie in lowest gear sitting on bike.

Bottom Line:   
bike is built as comfort bike, top gear ratio only nets 3.74:1 ratio. Not fast, sits too upright for my style of riding. Gear ratios are two far apart. Many components come from mountain bikes and are too heavy, handlebar, stem and crank set. Have replaced all of them 46T biopace sprocket, changed to 9 speed chain and sprockets (can only fit 8 sprockets on exist carrier. Bike is light and comfortable to ride. Get more use out of it now. Added Topeak mpx rack and large bag. Can haul 2 liters on rack with the rubber cables built into rack. And a weeks worth of groceries in the bag.
