    Ridgeback Velocity vs Claud Butler Odyssey

    I have seen second hand of both brands - I haven't felt big difference , Ridgebacl Velocity maybe is slightly better , but more expensive , almost new but . Commuting in town -3-4 miles3-4 times during the day,some uphill .. prefer lighter if possibler , sturdiest and stable drive .
