Definitely one of the coolest hybrid/utility bikes ever. Should post it in the Utility Forum.

I live in Southern California which is hard to beat for year round riding weather. I was in Vegas when it was 115 for a bachelor party and it felt like a sauna walking outside. Some friends went golfing in that heat and looked like death warmed over when they got back. Mid 90's is about the limit of what I'll ride in the southwest and I'm pretty miserable riding in those temps. I guess if you can get up into the mountain elevations the temps are much more reasonable. I think 3 degrees lower per 1000ft if my aviation training serves me right.

I've been in Vegas in January when it's still in the 30's at 9am. But in the summer it never really cools off below the 80's at night in Phoenix or Las Vegas IME. I make it to both places several times a year for work.

Do you just come to this web site to tell people why you are right and everybody else is wrong. That's all I see in any of your post.

Man you need to lighten up...Is it really that hard to understand that some of us would melt riding in the summer heat of Vegas? That's all I was saying really...

I sold it... : ( it was an 18" and a little to small

BUT REPLACED IT WITH THIS ... Large GT



Shimano Deore LX Brakes, and Shift Levers, Deore XT rear DR, Alivio Front, S2K Saddle, Shimano Nexave Crank, Formula Hubs, Front and Rear, Ritchy SpeedMax Cross Tires, Lizard Skin Grips. Might be missing the Mavic wheels, and a little better Fork. But really like the Ritchey SpeedMax Tires and the awesome brakes, the overall bike feels much tighter.. and fits better! LOL

I envy you!....I really do!

I just wish my wife would be understanding enough to allow me to buy and sell bikes as fast as you do!

That's a great hobby, and I wish I could get away with it! LOL!
