Rated5out of5byducksfromLove this bike!I could not be more pleased with this bike. It is very easy to handle, and not too heavy to lift on the bike rack. The gears shift very easily and the seat is comfortable.

Rated4out of5bymid-seniorfromBack in the saddle againFirst of all, the service by the young lady sales associate was awesome in the bike department. It was her suggestion to consider the Mia. I have not ridden a bicycle for over 20 years and needed to start cycling due to medical advice for knee problems. I was sized properly and was shown how to shift, take off the front wheel and how to get the chain back on if it fell off. I managed to shift wrong on my maiden ride causing the chain to come off but I was to get it back on and continue with my ride. The bicycle is fun to ride, I may need to change the seat for a wider spring seat due to my lower body needs. Overall I am so happy with the bicycle that I look forward to going for a ride.

Rated5out of5byPauliefromGreat bike for a growing teenagerIt was time to buy my growing 13-year old daughter a new bike. We saw couple of Treks at a local bike sore; all had the boring black/grey frame colors. My daughter saw this bike at the REI Denver Flagship and instantly fell in love. Now I can't get her off the bike. She rides it to school almost every day and she can finally keep up with me on my rode bike.

Rated5out of5byserinafromGlides comfortablyI searched for a quality step through bike here on Oahu at several different bicycle suppliers, to include department stores and was not successful, so I looked to REI based on several reviews of bicycles I found on different sites on-line, comparing prices versus needs, economic value, and quality. I bought this bike with the intention of using it for running errands, taking my son for rides (he's 9 months old), commuting, recreation, and exercise. When I first jumped on the bike, I had to get used to my foot hitting the front wheel while turning, because for many years, I have been using either a mountain bike or a racing bike. Both ride differently and handle differently. As soon as I got the bike going, it was surprisingly lightweight and fast. I tried several gears. At home, I have to conquer mid-sized hills, so I wanted a bike that would allow me to ride uphill with some effort, but not too much effort. I test rode my bike on a 7 mile stretch. I loved the ride. I feel confident that I will be able to attach the infant bike seat and tote my son safely around my neighborhood. This is another qulaity product purchased from REI. Also, there is a bell and a kickstand already attached to the bike. The bell rings nicely. It is a lot of fun to ride!
