Novara Buzz FlyBy vs. FlyBy Shuttle?
I'm considering buying the Novara Buzz FlyBy while the REI 20% off promotion is on, and noticed that they also sell a similar-looking model called the FlyBy Shuttle. I've searched extensively and haven't been able to find out any information on this bike beyond what's on the REI page. REI customer service couldn't even tell me how much it weighs!
The product page link is http://www.rei.com/product/784058
Does anyone know anything about the FlyBy Shuttle or what the pros/cons of buying it vs. the Buzz FlyBy might be? My intended use is a ~7 mile commute in NYC.
Thanks for your help.
