I picked the bike up assembled, and stopped at a bike shop on the way home to have it lubed and adjusted, derailleurs tweaked, wheels trued, etc.
Picked it up 2 days later, and have been having a BlAsT riding it. The 7 gears give an adequate range for use on rail trails, (where I do 90 % of my riding) where they can get you up to a good speed on a decline but gear down enough for the climb back. ;-)
The Bike almost feels too big the first time on it, BUT, it is the first bike I have owned that I can adjust the seat to where I need it without having to get an extended post. (I am 6' 1 1/2")
The larger tires give it a smoother ride of small bumps, and are wide enough to handle pea gravel and dirt.
All in all I spend $250.00 by the time you factor in the tune-up, and in my opinion, it was worth every penny and then some.
I ride currently 40 - 50 miles a week, and am working my way up to longer rides. If you are a tall and/or long legged person, this bike rocks, even for this 52 yo out of shape Dad!
