    That's cool. Both my first and second-born are in college right now. They cost me plenty every month. I'd be happy to swap them for a nice bike.:D

    It's really, really hard to do a...

    Funny you should mention that. The owner of the LBS where I bought my Felt (they also carry Specialized and a couple of the lesser-known brands) thought that was on the horizon as well.

    I'd suggest spending just a bit more and getting a Giant, Specialized or Trek hybrid. Any of them will give you better long-term service than the cheaper brands.

    I paid about $300 for a Giant...

    Since you're almost certainly getting the 60cm Opal, I really don't think that you'll find it to be overly stiff. The complaints of harshness I've heard have been from those with the smaller sizes....

    Since a decent cyclocomputer only costs about $30-35 (i.e., Sigma BC1600 w/ cadence on eBay), why worry about it? Go buy one.:D

    Responsive? - Heck Yes.

    Harsh? - Not.
