I have ridden the Fusion, as well as the Giant and Vision bikes of this type. (but what to call them) It's a very well built bike, handling is sold. First thing that came to mind when riding it was "chopper" it was all I could do not to make motor sounds
The Fusion should have much better performance then a Bike-E, The Bike-E has never been know as a fast bike. But bike performance has more to do with the rider then the bike.
"When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking." - Arthur Conan Doyle
