Rated5out of5bySP01fromGreat bike for MY needsI use this bike on paved trails with light user traffic. I wanted something that could handle workouts days and provide handling on community friendly greenways and this bike does not disappoint. The only changes I made were to the pedals, but I was going to do that no matter what bike I purchased. I tried to find something not great about it to have a balance review, but after 500+ miles on the bike I can't find any. I really enjoy this bike.

Rated5out of5byKelseyfromA joy to ride to work and around town!I ride about 24 miles return to/from work and weekend rides around town- this bike is perfect for my commuter riding and keeping up with the roadies too!
I'm so happy with my bike purchase- the Tachyon is GT's road bike modified to suit the commuter. Super light (@23lbs); raised stem; compact- quick to maneuver tight turns; wider handle bars and uber cushion hand rests... and did I mention how light it is!
I was a little apprehensive given the lack of REI reviews, but after comparing to Cannondale Quick 4 components (and discussing with knowledgeable staff at REI Santa Barbara) I was sold.
The only thing I intend on changing is the strap pedals to clip.
