      This bike rules, I needed to update my cannondale mountain bike I rode for the last 15 years. I wanted something more comfortable and easier on my wrist and back. I mostly ride in the city, sometimes paved trail or gravel trails and this bike just want to go and go's fast! I've done a minor thing or two off trail and its fine but thats the kind of riding im into. I love this bike, so smooth and comfortable.

        Bought bike for fitness and to ride on paved bike paths. Very happy with bike and its comfort. Needed a bike that would make me want to ride and the Adventure accomplished this. Have been riding 12-15 miles each Sat and Sunday.

          Comments:

          I fell in love with this bike as soon as I put my feet on the pedals. The cockpit is "open" and allows my chest and shoulders to open up. It's anything but cramped and feels completely natural. I felt like a kid again riding this bike! It's so easy to dial in a proper fit on this bike due to it's adjustable stem. I compared it to a Trek 7500 ([$] more), but in all fairness the Trek frame was too small. I have a Trek Mnt. bike which I love, but I bought my Adventure 3 to replace my Trek 1200 road bike which I had to sell. I needed a very comfortable bike which would be easy on my spine and shoulders (arthritis), yet be fast and a blast to ride without causing joint fatigue. The Sram twist shifters work flawlessly. I actually prefer them to the rapid fire + shifters I have on my mountain bike; they work better. Fun! The frame (& stem) is bomb-proof (you'll just have to trust me on this one...the story is just too embarrassing). I intend to use this bike for every ride except true off road trails, using it for grocery shopping for example. I outfitted it with bar-ends, a rear rack, front mud fender and wireless computer (of course), toe clips & straps. It looks great in the black/grey all decked out like I have it.
