    A 2013 Kona Dew Plus. Love it, I really do. Like the Quick CX, it has a pretty short TT and made a world of difference in my comfort. Kona offers more frame sizes for Dew series (6 instead of...

    If they both fit you well, get the CX4. Nothing wrong with picking a bike that looks better to you, just means it'll put a smile on your face each time you look at it.

    I've ridden a CX4, it's a...

    Hey chaadster, what kind of trailer is that blue one in your photos?

    Rigid fork ought to be fine.

    Some brands I'd look for are Giant, Trek, Specialized, Fuji, Raleigh, Kona, Marin, etc.

    Basically, look for nice bikes that sold for more than $300 new, but weren't...

    $300 max per bike is pretty low for a decent quality bike, you might want to look at used bikes so you can picke from a better brand than Diamondback. Raleigh makes a good bike for the money. $400...

    Here's my advice. When you get the bike, make sure it fits. If it does and you like it and feel good about your purchase, don't come back to this forum for a while. Enjoy your bike.

    This is one of my favorite parts of being a dad, taking care of all the bikes in the garage. I get the kids to help pump up the tires, oil the chains, and do the general pre ride brake checks. The...

    Not really answering your question, but I pulled a 2 kid trailer attached to a trail a bike, which attached to the seat post of my mountain bike. It worked for me and was honestly easier to pull...

    I have an Atlus front derailleur and a Deore rear derailleur on my 2013 kona. At first I was really concerned that the Atlus was going to be junky and that I should have the shop swap it out for a...

    Not only should you take them for another spin, you should try another brand that has a frame around 21". WIth the amount of FX bikes Trek sells, it's shameful they don't offer the frames in more...

    The 19" will probably fit fine, I'm 5'9" with a ~31" inseam and the 17" Muirwoods was the size I would've chosen.

    The handlebars are super wide. You can cut them down yourself if REI won't, it's...

    I got the 2013 Dew Plus. I'd be fine with the 2014 too, if they were available when I bought mine.

    I wouldn't worry about the Deore/Alivio downgrade. The new Alivio is definitely redesigned and...

    Sounds like you are on the same journey I was in picking a bike and looking for the same things. I'll just throw 2 more models at you that you might consider. Raleigh Misceo 2.0/3.0 and the bike I...

    Edited my reply because I just realized you were looking at the Quick CX 4, not the non-CX models. Both the muirwoods and CX are great bikes. The Muirwoods feels a lot longer than the CX and it's...

    I have a kickstand and use it all the time. When I recently upgraded bikes, one of the factors I used in choosing my new bike was the ability to use a good quality kickstand that mounts onto a...

    Definitely 2013 Dew Plus, as long as it fits. I recommend this as a 2013 Dew Plus owner who debated over the same choices you are (plus two more more: Raleigh Miseco & Marin Muirwoods). Giant...

    Enjoy it, $400 is a great deal and the Misceo 2.0 is a nice bike (IMO). I would leave it as is and just ride it. I thought the 38 tires were nice, made it ride like a mountain bike that was...

    Good choice, I just bought a 2013 Kona Dew Plus myself. :) I love it, I test rode a lot of bikes and the Dew Plus really stood out for me. The only bike that was close was the 2013 Cannondale...

    Definitely pay attention to the Miseco recommendation, those frames are a little longer than other hybrids in the same size range. That might work in your favor.

    Seems like the Kona has slightly better components, and the shifters are better on it (by far).

    I'd buy the Kona, but that's just me. Buy the one you like riding the best and also think you'll...

    The misceo runs a little long, it does stretch you out more than some of the others on the list. However, a 31.5 inseam might have the saddle near the seatpost limit, which might put a lot of weight...
