TELL YOUR FRIENDS
If you like to maintain an anonymous profile on your daily commute then this bike may not be for you, as it will surely get you lots of compliments. It is an extremely comfortable ride, you can tell a lot of time and consideration has been put into this bike’s frame geometry. It rides more cruiser style than aggressive commuter, which is great for those that like to sit up and enjoy the ride. The matte frame is very stylish and comes in some great color options as well. The included accessories and components (internal hub, Brooks saddle, rear rack, etc.) are a bargain, the bike comes completely set up and gorgeous for reasonable price.
I had some issues with the fenders of the particular model I tested. The metal details on the fenders became quite loose and it became quite loud with lots of rattles.
This is a stylish, comfortable and well thought-out city bike. Its upright riding position and frame geometry provides for an extremely smooth ride. This bike rides like a cruiser, so it’s not the right ride for fast commuters, but if you like to enjoy a slow ride than this bike could definitely be for you.
