Strengths:    Looks nice, nice grips....uh, it's basically ok. I wouldn't pay MSRP of $359. But it was worth the 199 I paid.

Weaknesses:    Selle Royal look-in seat is pure garbage and was off the bike after one ride. The suspension seat post is low quality and totally unecessary. The front fork is pretty junky.....I'd kill to just have a rigid fork. Why do companies put suspension forks on hybrids?? It's just idiotic. Oh yeah, not real fond of the Aqua tread tires either.

Bottom Line:   
Good bike if you can get it for the low 200's. The suspension fork and seatpost are junk and not at all necessary in a hybrid. loose the junk seat instantly. I was luke warm to this bike when I first rode it but we are starting to bond.

Strengths:    Handsome, comfortable cruising machine. Frame is very sturdy and stiff. Upright riding position means you can take in more of the scenery.

Weaknesses:    Fork isnt adjustable, suspension seatpost unnecessary, fairly heavy.

Bottom Line:   
If your looking for a comfortable bike path crusier, this bike fits the bill! It featured components found on higher-end offerings of other companies, with a beautiful, attractive frame. And with rack mounting points, it is inspiring to the urban/bike path adventurer! Five roasted sacks

Strengths:    Cheap. Hybrid of a hybrid that has mtb parts (not larger wheels etc) & hence easily interchangeable. Comfortable riding position for WWarrior with a dodgy back.

Weaknesses:    Not suitable for racing with slightly reclined riding position & high handlebars. Heavier than serious mtb's. Pedals slippery when wet (I'll change mine).

Bottom Line:   
Great value for what I want it for i.e. tootling around the local streets but with the ability to get up & down gutters, stairs & basic tracks without worrying about nimble wheels & components (like on my road racer).
