After 20 years of not riding, I decided on this bike and haven't regretted it. I ride on the dikes in Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam, on the road (some parts are questionable) and greenways into Vancouver, to Tsawwassen, Fort Langley (basically everywhere in the lower mainland) from home in Maple Ridge. I have used this bike cycle camping to Cloverdale, Tsawwassen, Salt Spring Island and the Pender Islands and really enjoy it. I have paired it with a Burley Travoy trailer and am now car-free. This is my bike for everything - camping, touring, exercise, shopping or just because I want to get out and enjoy the weather. I have ridden it many many times in the rain and even in the snow and on some mountain bike type trails, but it's not really meant for that. I love that it's for women and that I can sit upright if I choose or slightly forward. I bought the bike at my LBS and have to say that I am not disappointed. My bike is one year old tomorrow and has just over 2,500 kms on it and still looks brand new. The blue colour rocks!!
Bought this slightly used in prestine condition. From the first block I rode I had to have it. I am a chick and influenced by my dad who had the 7.4 FX- talk about SMOOTH! I wish I could have bought his after his accident. It's definantly worth the money both models. The 7.2 Is perfect for me and my size. I want another one and don't even need it. It's just so much fun and addictive so get you one! BTW-I lost 20lbs in 4 months riding 5-7/x a week. Never felt better. 1 year later I'm down 35lbs.
This bike is my go-to for commuting, errands, and general recreation (about 8-10 miles on the hike-and-bike trail on my lunch hour daily, more for weekends and social rides).I bought this four and a half months ago and have ridden it every single day, minus one out-of-town trip where I couldn't bring it along, ever since. I got two free tune-ups to use within one year after purchase and have used one so far, though it wasn't really needed yet.It isn't as light as my road bike, but it's an intensely practical vehicle for commuting and errands. Climbing is no problem, and the ride is very comfortable. It isn't designed for rocky trails, but it will function on them - just not comfortably.I recommend giving the saddle some time. When I bought the bike, I thought the first upgrade would be a new saddle - I hated it. After a week, I'd changed my mind, and eventually shopped to find a similar one for my road bike. Obviously the saddle is a very personal choice for anyone - but the Bontrager saddle that comes standard, though not soft or cushy, turns out to be really well moulded for my own personal butt and girly bits, and may be for yours as well once you get used to it!There was a little fishtailing on the crushed gravel trail with the stock tires, though they're great on pavement. I changed them out for knobbier ones and it does better. I had one flat with the original tires.To be honest, I really don't like the powder blue at ALL. I wish the bike shop where I bought it had the dark berry color - I would have liked that a lot better. However, that's the only thing I don't like about this bike, and I do get lots of compliments from others on its looks. Maybe I'll spring for a paint job one day. This is [...], okay? I was shallow and weird BEFORE it was cool.Nice, pretty, fun, good quality and workmanship, very enjoyable and very practical bike!
I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I ride more than ever and have been using it to commute to work. It is really fast and turns on a dime. It is really lightweight so it is easy for me to maneuver. The seat does take some getting used to but I find it satisfactory. I changed the hand-grips out for some ergonomic ones which really helped. My favorite part is how versatile it is. I can take it on long rides with lots of hills but when I am riding around downtown I can't help but sneak a peek at my reflection in the shop windows because my baby blue bike is so pretty.
When my old Schwinn Mesa Runner was stolen I needed a new bike. Found this in a beautiful Robin's Egg Blue at [...] in [...]! I needed something I could use to commute, race and just ride for fun and I could only afford one bike. This bike fits my needs perfectly. I haven't done a triathlon on it yet, but I know its faster than my beloved Schwinn.
