  • Large 700c wheels with plush, semislick tires cruise along easily for a swift, sporty ride
  • Frame eyelets accept fenders or a rear rack (sold separately); replaceable rear derailleur hanger helps extend usable life of the frame

All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance.

by fromThis is a great bike My first ride on this bike was 23.2 miles. Perhaps a little too much for the first ride for this man. But, loved it. This bike is comfortable, shifts effortlessly and is attractive. I am actually a medium by height, but after driving between stores to ride a large and a medium, felt like a better fit with the large. Good decision. Would have had to ride with the seat way up on the medium to feel comfortable. I have had this bike up to 28 miles/hour with my planet bike apparatus. Would have made it to 30, except for a car pulled out in front of me!! This bike is fast and would compete with many more pricey bikes. I love the front suspension. I live in an area where the roads are not the best and love the "cushion" of the front suspension. Even rode this bike in a duathlon-run, bike, run and cruised to first place in my age group! I have had this bike on the asphalt, on dirt roads and it performs great, despite the rider!
