Little help with a spec...

I'm looking at this bike:

What do they mean by Shimano 9s? Also, is this a good bike for $1K? I know there isn't a lot of detail there but...

You're right. There is NO detail there.

Have a look at the Giant, Specialized, and Trek web pages for their hybrid/fitness bikes. Lots of detail, and solid bikes in the $750 (and below) range.

Good pedigree and here in Austin is sold by one of our higher end bike shops. It`s a nice lookin` bike and would be well worth a look if you can find a dealer. And like monogodo said, it`s a 9 speed rear cassette.

Finding a dealer is no problem, I live in Canada!

I was hoping somebody had one...
