by fromJust plain fun I have a road bike that I use to commute and to compete in triathlons. I wanted something to just hop on, ride around the neighborhood, pull a trailer bike, and for casual rides with the family. So far, this bike fits the bill perfectly. It's comfortable, the gears shift easily,and it's truly a pleasure just to be on it.

by fromNo more back pain After ten years with my hybrid I finally decided to go for comfort and upright riding. The Jaunt have a very smooth and noiseless ride. The frame is made to last and the components are name brands. So far I am very happy with the performance and I know it will provide years are great riding.

by fromNice Bike. My wife and I purchased matching Jaunts and so far we are very happy with them. We were ready to transition to something more comfortable; with a more upright riding position and the Jaunts have filled that need. We considered the Townie but were concerned about the complaints of their chains coming off due to the long span between front and rear chainrings. In fact, the chain actually came off of the one we were test riding in our local REI store. The Jaunt's "foot forward" position is not as pronounced as the Townie's but IMO just enough to get the effect. Be warned however, the foot forward design will give your thighs a good work out.
