Summary:

I am in love with this bike, it's my baby!!

Faults:

As someone who has this bike, I can't say enough about it!

As far as this bike keeping up with traffic, it keeps up great, and I have been on the road with heavy traffic, and have as a matter of fact rode side by side with big trucks, and have out run them.

If you really want a bike that is all that and more, this bike is for you.

General Comments:

I agree got one and love it big time. The only thing, and just one thing is I find the seat up a little too close. Could be back a bit. I'm only 5-4, not too tall, just right for me, but a beauty of a bike.

Do you have arms the size of your legs or what man, I am 6ft 2in and have a reach of 74. The seat is perfect just where it is, I can't see how anyone under say... 5ft 10in would complain about that!
