What a load that was. It seems like it's a hybrid/comfort bike type of deal. Probably just as offroad worthy as the bikes from Wal-Mart or something. What they had people saying made me laugh out loud too. They had one person say they had to stop in order to shift ha ha ha. So many people were saying they no longer have to look down to shift anymore. I rarely if at all look down to shift. May look to see what gear I'm in but that's all. The worse part was they had editors from some bike magazines complimenting the bike. What made it even worse was it is a $500 bike! My bike didn't cost that much and is much more offroad worthy than that thing is. They need to cut the price but $200 or more to put it in the price range it needs to be in. I believe there was post about this thing before, but I had to bring it up after seeing it. Oh it also can be upgraded to a Shimano front deraileur. Which of course really means nothing, since my $150 Mongoose which came from a sporting goods store had SHimano too. Of course I don't use that bike anymore. Thought I'd share, have a good day all.
