Great bike for Beginners, I am 6' 1 and 205lbs. Responds and shifts great. Ordered a Delta Cycle Alloy Bicycle Stem Raiser for it and one for my wife's bike for long rides. It is last years model but got a good deal on it.

I was going to get a different model, but then I looked at this one more closely and decided it could take a beating much better. I was hoping for more color options, but it wasn't a deal-breaker. I've ridden through town on it couple times, and I'm quite happy with my purchase.
