Date Reviewed: May 18, 2010

Strengths:    Steel - 19.5 lbs from factory, fast, nice equipment from Ritchey

Weaknesses:    no shock front or rear, hands can fatigue

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike and ride it on highways mostly for conditioning. I am not a daredevil and I am getting older. I need to put faster road tires on it for more speed. I have strong quads and think I could compete with roadies a little better with streamlined tires.
Shocks might be nice but I have never had any so I do not know what I am missing - advice is welcome. Klisco

Date Reviewed: March 18, 2008

Strengths:    It's a Breezer, need I say more?

Weaknesses:    It's getting up there in the years so it will need a new paint job. (the paint was always a pain on these). My oldest daughter took over this bike. So I had to set it up for her & don't get to ride it anymore.

Bottom Line:   
I picked it up as a backup to my Jet Stream(I love my Jet Stream). With the front suspension (My Jet Stream is a 95 so its ridged)and the little heavier steel for the frame I thought I could retire my ProFlex Beast from the rought stuff. But my daughter took it over. So now it's father & daughter both riding Breezers.

Strengths:    Light weight, but built to last.

Weaknesses:    None-techno weinnies won't like this bike.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is light, climbs with ease, and handles well downhill. Everything seems correct on this bike. When you are ready to ride for the sake of riding, there aren't many bikes better than a Breezer. No fads here, just a great bike.

Looking for a Thunder Burt Update.....

......Wondering if anyone has been running a Thunder Burt over the summer as a rear race tire. Thoughts? Durability (snakeskin version)? Comparison to an Ikon? ThanksRead More »

Anyone using the Ardent Race as a rear here? Thunder Burt? Trying to decide.

Like to have some actual experience with either tire. They're not exactly in the same class, i.e. 2.1 vs 2.25 and almost 200 g difference, but the rolling resistance may not be that different. :???:Read More »
