Anyone have experience with these two models? The wife is looking for a new ride and she likes the comfort style. These two models fit the bill. Would like to hear pros and cons of these bikes from anyone who owns either or has any experience with them. I know both models come in three sub models. We would most likely go with the middle bike, Citizen 2 and the Vital 2. Thanks in advance for any and all advice offered.
We got my wife a Diamondback Vital 2 on sale from Dick's and she loves it. It's got a nice cushy ride from the spring in the seatpost as well as a well-padded seat. The handlebars sit high, providing a comfortable ride position. The front suspension also absorbs the bumps very well. It's just a bit heavy, but she's able to keep up with me on my Trek Mendota, while I pull my 2 kids 6 and 3 in the trailer. On the trails I'm going around 15 MPH, and she's able to keep up fine. Hope this helps.
