Let's start off by stating that I'm 6'1 and 225lbs. With that said, the angle of the frame and the way which I lean over for the handle bars is extremely well engineered. I can't imagine finding another bike that seats me in such a comfortable riding position. Once I was done with the ride, I had no back or shoulder fatigue what-so-ever. The seat, which is very narrow seemed like it would be a killer an the behind at first glance but I'm in complete shock on how comfortable it is for it's size. I definitely won't need to replace it like I thought.
Gear changes are smooth as silk and the brakes are phenomenal at bringing a total of ~260lbs to a dead stop. The tires handle very well on the road and gravel equally and because they're not an aggressive tread it makes riding much easier due to the lack of road resistance.
Overall review for this bike is 5 STARS on every level possible. This bike fulfilled all my expectations and then some. If your unsure about spending the money, think twice because this is going to be money that's very well spent.
