    For an older, heavier casual male rider like me, this is a perfect bike. The seat and front shocks make it extra comfortable and the riding position doesn't strain my arms, shoulders, or hands even on long rides. The eight gears are more than adequate for all the terrain I ride, including moderate dirt roads and trails/paths. The rack accommodates larger panniers so light shopping is easy. If this is your kind of riding, my three years on it says this is your bike.
