    Yes, it's a very decent bike, for the money. You would be hard pressed to find a better beginner bike.

    I would recommend it. Very nice for the price, and excellent starter bike. This is the bike that I'm telling my friend about. She's going to pick this up as her second bike pretty soon.

    It would also be an excellent "college bike."
