Anyone have this bike or comments about it? I am looking for a commuter/road bike. I go to and from work and do a lot of paved bike trails (up to 20 miles total). I think road bikes are too fragile for me and my riding. I am looking for a very fast bike with wider tires. I am 260 lbs so i think i want a hybrid and this one caught my eye. What do you guys think? How fast is it? Is it a good bike?
I am looking for no suspension, fast bike that can handle some urban abuse. Max $650. Could a trek 1000 handle this? Thanks
