It can go zero to zoom with a few strokes! The geometry is really comfortable . The best thing about the cycle is that you can add front and rear racks and it has 3 slots on the frame for bottle cages/bags . The brakes work really fine and the gears shift instantly without any hassle . There are some minor scratches on the one I received though and the brakes were rubbing . It has a really slick paintjob. Just go for it.
