why not just get a MTN bike itll be better than a hybrid off-road, and not all that much worse on the road. Get a bike thats actualy good at atleast one thing instead of halfassed at both

I've owned a Versailles for more than a year. Very comfortable ride and it handles well. No issues that I am aware of.

I don't have a Versailles, but I do ride an '05 Buenos Aires that has been very comfortable for over 7000 miles. I is my first true road bike and I've been happy with the choice. Of course, now I'm looking for ANOTHER bike...
