Thanks for the feedback!
Mrs. Zoxe and I ride 8-12mi on 6d a week weather permitting, mostly through subdivisions and on bike paths. The main problem with the Revive is that's a) HEAVY and b) is capped at 7 speeds. I ride a Giant Cypress, and we're looking for something that will better match my speed (I'm no speed demon but would like to ride around 12-14mph instead of the 8-10 the Revive is built for).
We're hoping the 21 speed Townie is able to keep something like the Revive's geometry (which is very comfy) while allowing her to spin a 700c wheel and have a bigger chainring when she needs it.
We have yet to test ride anything yet. I want to get her on a Specialized Carmel 700, and there's a Day6 dealer in town as well. She finds a standard bike geometry very uncomfortable, otherwise I'd be trying to get us on a pair of Long Haul Truckers.
