Novara Jaunt XX Women's Bike - 2013is rated5.0out of5by4.
Rated5out of5byLauraborealisfromLove my bike!I love this bike! I recently left a city that was extremely unfriendly to bikes, and thus had not ridden a bike in 6+ years, so I was a little nervous about hopping back on one again. I was specifically looking for something that would make me feel stable and safe on the road, and this bike is great. I'm a graduate student so I ride my bike to and from campus on a six-mile round trip. It's mostly flat around here so I haven't had to use all of my gears but shifting is easy, although sometimes it's a little clunky (maybe because I do it so rarely), and I really like the extra stability that the upright posture and fatter tires give me. Also it's pretty!

Rated5out of5byBaltimore SarahfromBest Bike!I love this bike! It's exactly what I was looking for: easy riding for short trips around the city. It's not the lightest bike out there but it's not heavy - it feels like a good weight for what you're getting. It's comfortable and I feel stable on it. All I need is a basket!

Rated5out of5byZriderfromSturdy ComfortBest bike ever! After trying other brand bikes - as soon as test rode this bike I knew it was the one.
Very comfortable bike. You sit up instead of leaning forward toward the handlebars. I use the bike on pavement, gravel, a little off road trails and hills and the bike performs perfectly.
The bike has a sturdy feel to it. You feel completely confident on it.
