After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.

Rated4out of5byAmyRHfromGreat BikeI use this bike for fun rides on the weekend, but mostly for commuting to work on a paved bike path. I really like how it handles and its comfort. I am new to bike commuting, but this bike has been great. The only thing I don't like is that I don't seem to be able to attach panniers (at least easily for my beginner skills). I just wear a backpack with my things for work.

Rated4out of5byDr JSalfromGreat bike, rough gear-changesLove the bike, but even after initial test drive, bike was tuned for smoother gear changing, yet continue to have worsening problems with gears, sticking, noisy, and unresponsive (or slow to respond). Otherwise, it is a very smooth, fast ride; lightweight and dynamic.

Rated5out of5bymdjperezfromIncredible bikeThis is my first road bike. I've had two mountain bikes and one hybrid and love this bike the most out of all my bikes. I have been riding these other bikes for years but wanted something light weight and faster and this fit the bill. I love that it's a beginner road bike so it's giving me the experience I need without fully committing to the sport. I highly recommend it.
