by AOakleyfromAwesome bike!!Solid bike! I read reviews on so many different models before deciding on this one for my daughter. She and I both love it! I do wish the electric model was available and that there were more color options since I want one of my own. The fact you can't purchase them and have them shipped to your home is a definite drawback. This company could be doing significantly more business allowing folks to purchase via the web. They produce a genuinely solid, quality product that will last for many years.

by CarmenrevistafromCoolest bike ever!This bike turns heads! Honestly, I get at least two compliments from bystanders whenever I take it out. Color is bright, easy to spot, I love matching the bike.
On the serious side, this is an easy to ride and handle bicycle, and as someone who has not ridden a bike for over 40 years, this is of paramount importance. It is a bit heavy, more than my previous ten speed, but I had much younger muscles then. It is, however, way more sturdy. I decided to retrofit with a variable speed motor, and it really helps with the hills, but mostly dont use it, even though it adds some weight. I just wanted to keep riding, and not let the bicycle weight, or the occasional hill discourage me.
I am now an enthusiastic rider and couldnt be happier.

by MhenryfromPerfect for Comfortable RideMy wife selected this bike after trying out a few in-store. Very comfortable and the flat-foot design provides for a secure feel while on the bike. We wanted to go with the 21 speed to allow for a bit of climbing on hills. It's a Townie, so it's not meant to be the lightest bike out there, but that seat sure is comfortable. Be sure to get a cross bar (Yakima makes one) if you intend to transport on a rear bike rack. Bought along with a Quick 4 for myself and REI did a great job on delivery and even helped us out to the car.
