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.
Scott bikes purchased on REI.com must be shipped to REI and picked up at stores which are authorized Scott dealers. The bikes are fully assembled and the shipping is free!
We cannot ship Scott bikes to your home or other addresses.
Comments about Scott Metrix 40 Women's Bike - 2012:
This is the first bike I've bought and so far it's been great. Before a year ago, I had not been on a bike in close to 20 years. It took some getting used to, but once it was fitted correctly, it's been quite a comfortable, enjoyable ride. It does great on beat up streets, up hills, and even gravel trails. Initially I had some issues with my wrists or knee hurting, but chocked that up to adjusting the seat up, forward, tilting, etc, and now it's been fine. I may consider different handle bars since I'm more leisurely than the bike is designed for, but overall a great buy!
