My sister and I decided to buy bikes for spring to help us get more active and lose some weight, and this has been the best purchase I've made in awhile. I'm 14 and about 5'8 and a little over 200 lbs. so I needed what would be considered an adult bike. When I first went in store to find a bike, I was actually really upset because I didn't like any of the bikes and my sister had gotten her Schwinn Legacy an hour earlier at another store, then I saw these bikes. I had first decided to get the blue, but I hated the decals, and I was a little offset by the purple so I went with the blue. As soon as I got out to the car my dad immediately told me I needed a 26 inch instead of a 24 as tall as I am. I went in to be initially disappointed that they only had a 26 in the purple, so I at the time settled for it. Also, just an FYI, I HIGHLY ADVISE you buy the bike in store and have somebody come with you who knows a bit about bikes, because my family knows from experience that buying bikes in the box often leads to wrong or bent parts from shipping. Anyhow, I started falling in love with the bike as soon as I put it in the car, another FYI this bike won't fit in a normal car, even one with a very large cab or trunk, unless possibly your seats fold down. Anyhow, the day I got it I rode 7-8 miles in the country with it with no problem. There are spring/shocks under the seat that REALLY come in handy if you're on a bumpy road or one with holes in it. I adore it and it's a smooth enough ride to be able to take my camera and get some decent shots while cruising along. Only thing, if you live in an area with high inclines I wouldn't advise getting this kind of cruiser unless you're willing to get in shape enough to be able to deal with peddling hard up the hills. It's also absolutely gorgeous and my bike actually costed less than my sisters who has basically the exact same bike model, just with a slight difference in the bend of the bar to the seat bar, and without the basket holder thingy. Can't wait to accessorize it and take it all around town and to the local parks!
