Has anyone noticed the Trek Softride?
It seems like they copied the seat concept from the Revive. This bike probably weights about 26 - 29 lbs compared to the Revive which is almost 40 lbs! I think Trek can sell a lot of bikes and it seems like the geometry is very similar to the Revive. The Trek is probably more efficient since it uses 26 inch wheels. The only problem with the bike is the lack of gears as it only comes in 3 and 7 speeds. The other thing wrong with the bike is the lack of a suspension seat post. Since you're going to be sitting straight back on the saddle, you'll feel every rut, bump and pothole! The Revive to it's credit has a suspension built into the frame.
In my opinion, it's a good first try but needs more work.
