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.

Bike commuting to work is a concept I have been throwing around for several years and decided to finally pull the trigger. To appease the wife, I needed to find a bike that wouldn't break the bank but could still perform. The Sub 30 has been great. I have two weeks of commuting (20 miles round trip) on it under the belt and I have no complaints.
I'm 6'2" w/ long legs and the X-large is a great fit. The feel is a little cramped (due to design not size) but it is not a road bike so I kind of expected this. The bike is very nimble and makes riding in traffic downtown a breeze. The 700c wheels roll very well and the drive train gets you up to speed quickly.
If vanity is your thing, I have also received several complements on the bike's aesthetics.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
