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.

Rated3out of5byJohn the weekend bikerfromNot sure if I got value for the moneyNot sure if this is the bike's fault, but I have had two flats within a month of purchase. Was not due to rough terrain.
Question the quality of the tires/tubes.
Some creaking noises during "break-in" period.

Rated5out of5bySSgtJohnfromFast FunI use this bike to get back and fourth to work. (4.5 miles) It has really good brakes and gears. I have clocked it at 28 mph down the hill. So far I have only had it on the trails once, but it held up well.
