    This is the Walmart Mongoose Paver that I lightly modified a couple of years ago for fitness riding. It took me from 245+ lbs to 180, whereupon I built my carbon roadie. I still ride the Paver around town for errands or when I'm unsure of the road conditions or think I may want to do a bit of light off-roading... you know... hybrid stuff.

    It made me think about it.
    It made me. Think about it.

    Hey VoyagerAl, I have that exact same bike, the Trek 730 Multitrack. I bought it in 1997, and I love it. It has such a smooth comfortable ride.

    My new Roam 1

    I just took delivery of this yesterday. I have a Soma Stanyan for road riding but my wife and I think we are missing out by not having a bike that is comfortable on dirt and stone rail trails and state park dirt roads and trails. No one local had the W model in stock so I am waiting until next week for my wife's bike to come in from a CA dealer that the Giant rep talked into letting go of one. Here's mine. I took it for a ride with her on her Bianchi road bike and I definitely got a work out. I took a quick ride on a dirt road on the way home and it was definitely in its element there. A fun bike. Shifts better than I thought it would with low end stuff on it and I like the disk brakes. The fake water bottle on the seat tube is a zippered case that has a spare tube and tools in it. I am 6 0 with long legs and arms so my dealer thought an XL would be appropriate. I am looking forward to doing some riding much less car traffic.

    Very nice Giant. I liked last years white but now that black color speaks to me as well. How do you find the fit? 6 foot with an XL frame? Does that work for you? What's the standover height? Is there enough room for comfort?

    It's a single speed, it's able to coast.

    Well, it's not just about height. I have pretty long legs for a 6 footer and long arms as well. He had me ride a large and it looked/felt a little small. My road bike frame is a 60cm which is about the same as this one. Giant spec's the standover height at 33.1 inches. My pants inseam is 34. The actual height in front of the seat is around 34. I measured my cycling inseam once but I can't remember it but it has to be 2 or 3 inches more. I can stand over it and lift the front wheel around 3 inches off the ground before it starts getting "snug". Most 6 footers would be riding a smaller frame in both of mine. I guess I could have gotten a smaller frame and put a longer stem on it but I am over 50 and I am more comfortable with the handlebars and saddle close to the same height. Small frames have more seat post out and my butt jacked further above the bars. The is only a little over an inch of standover and a half inch of top tube length between the L and the XL. I probably could have been OK on either one but the shop owner thought the XL fit me better and I demurred to his great experience.

    Fantastic. How's the stem length?
    I got a very short stem with riser bar for my wife because she prefers a more upright pos.
    If your daughter needs this combo, I can recommend this stem. It's perfect. (Tioga)
