Rated5out of5byThisIsBenSilverfromAn Unparalleled ValueI did a lot of research and came up with the Tachyon.
It's sleek and it's light and it feels great.
My only complaint is really with the seat, it's a bit thin and a bit hard.
Everything else has been smooth and enjoyable

Rated5out of5byvanayfromperfect commuter/road bikebuying this bike came after a lot of research and testing out bikes. I couldn't be happier with my decision! I wanted something sturdy and comfortable enough to handle daily commuting, as well as fast enough to keep up with my husband's (waaay more expensive) trek road bike....This Tachyon is the perfect mix. And so light weight!
