I've been considering something like this as well to be able to tag along with my 4-year old daughter who's learning to ride her bike.

I'd probably just go with a single speed though. Anything...

I just bought a Giant Rapid 3, and I am very happy with it.

I wanted the road gearing for more speed, plus the flat handlebars for more maneuverability. I don't have any Trek dealers nearby so I...

It's going to be easier to go faster on the Giant but it's also less of a "do-it-all" bike.

So is the regular SRAM x4 okay? (for lower end componentry that is)

My Hardrock Sport came with the SRAM x4 shifters and RD, and so far, I've been very happy with it.

How often do you find new routes to ride?

Just curious, do you tend to ride the same routes week in, week out?

Or do you find new places to ride much more often?
