Rated4out of5byfromOverstock bike, great urban cruiserI've been off bike riding since 2006. I've also put on some weight in that time. In my effort to lose about 100 pounds I decided to add bike riding as part of that plan as it's something I used to do regularly and enjoy so it can be fit back into my life easy enough. When I rode regulalry I had 3 bikes: Rocky Mountain Sol geared up for more urban pursuits but able to hit Forest Park when needed, Electra all steel cruiser, "The Hawthorne Night Out" single speed (built of various parts). I ride this bike mainly for exercise with my wife and kid. We mix exercise with running local errands (2-3 miles per jaunt) and such. I ride it 3-4 times per week. I am working myself up to commuting the 16 miles round trip to work and back on it. This bike is great on those little jaunts of 2-3 miles. I have added a rack that I can use my old Ortleib panniers with. I am a 300 pound man. This bike, tires fully inflated, holds me up just fine. The frame is light since it is aluminum but is responsive as I can feel the road under me. I am not used to the more upright position this bike puts you in but I am training into that. There are 7 speeds on this. You have 2 thumb triggers that you shift with. It works good and is smooth. I know some basic bike mechanics from back in the day and the deraileur and such look easy enough to maintain. Caliper brakes. I like those better for "non-performance" brakes. Perfect for the errand running/short commute rider. Frame is drilled and set for add ons like fenders, racks, and such. One with a tad of tool skill an install these things themselves. All in all, I paid under $300 for mine as it was on sale and I had some store credit. Good buy and nice little bike if you want an urban cruiser that'll get you to the comicbook store and back. The newer (2013) version comes wiht a rack and fender I believe but is way more costly.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat value, great commuter bike!After looking everywhere for a lightweight step-through bike that fit my 5' 10" height, I finally gave up and focused on finding an affordable, lightweight bike that would fit me period. This is a standard frame bike from a solid company (Marin has a great reputation/reviews) that is easy to get up and down the stairs at my apartment building and fast/easy enough to ride to and from work and errands daily. The frame/seat combo don't have much give so it can be a little rough if you are riding over a lot of broken asphault, but otherwise this is a solid bike and I'm glad I made the investment. I don't know that I would ride it for 20-50 miles, but 2-5 miles at a time for errands and the like have been no problem. Great choice for me.
