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. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me now! Several years ago, I sold my pickup truck and gave my mountain bike to our son who lived in Colorado. We recently moved close to Lake Las Vegas and I wanted to bike more (bad knees are stopping my running habit). I did not want to purchase a bike rack for my Honda CR-V. Did some research on folding "commuter" bikes, and they sounded like a good fit. I could not find a dealer in Las Vegas area, then discovered REI had a couple in stock. Took a brief test ride and was sold. No, it doesn't have full suspension for Moab and trails in the mountains. Henderson has developed an extensive network of paved bike trails and this works just perfectly. I value having a dealer to service it as well! I am very pleased with my purchase!
