This is a very comfortable and easy to ride bike it is a 21 speed sure-stopping cantilever brakes and has a host of extras ranging from pump pegs to braze on mounts for racks and waterbottles. It is not a racing or mountain bike it is not made for that! if you want a bike to get on and just cruise for miles and miles with all 21 gears to get you over the hills and through the woods this is the bike for you. And you have a pro trainer so you can get started right now in front of the T.V.!!
