I still love my 2011 soho dlx! I have over 3,000 miles on it. I have had to change a couple of flats. I don't think it is a big deal if you have all the right tools. I could probably do it in 15...

Too funny, it seems to be a Florida thing (on shore and off shore flow). I get the same thing everyday in Fort Lauderdale. I repeat to myself, that which doesn't kill me, only makes me stronger...

I can't speak to the Office Bag, but I have the Downtown and love it. It is easy to take on and off. It is very water resistant. I keep all my stuff in it, and on the days I have to drive, I carry...

I actually had my first flat this morning. It took about 25 minutes to change. To me, it seemed pretty straight forward. I did not have to re-tension the belt. Since having done it once, i think I...

I love mine for commuting. It rains every day here this time of year. It has made my maintenance so much easier. I have put 2,000 miles on it already this year.

I sprung for the GT Ruckus DX. I have been keeping my eye out for a decent priced mountain bike. I love it so far. My wife is now wondering when I will be building ramps in the back yard ; )

I put about 14,000 miles on the 4300 disc I had and it never gave me a problem other than an occasional flat. It is a bit heavy, but about the same weight as the SOHO DLX I am riding now. I...

I have been commuting on my 2011 soho dlx since December. So far I love it. My commute is 7.5 miles each way. Florida is flat as a pancake, so not much in the way of hills. So far, it has been pretty...

Mine seems to be centered very close to exact. I have a pretty good eye and if it is off, I can't see it.

I don't have a lot of reference points regarding disc breaks. The only other disc brakes that I have used were on my Trek 4300 and they were also mechanical. I would say they are as good, or...
