What's more, it boasts easy-rolling 700c wheels and a Shimano 24-speed drivetrain with all the right gears for the road's ups and downs.

I bought this on Labor day. Figured I could use a bike to commute around the area and get a good workout. I didn't know how fast it was going to be but this thing is zippy. I'm not saying it's road bike caliber. Don't get this if that's what you're expecting. But if you're expecting something with a bit of "ooomph" and some comfort, this is the way to go. Even when I hit the biggest bumps by mistake, it doesn't feel that bad. I didn't see a huge difference between this and the carbon model fork (quick 4). I tried them both extensively, but besides the quick 4 being a little lighter, I didn't feel the difference in tires really made it a better buy. While I see people with road bikes flying by me at the park, what I don't see is many road bikes when I'm strolling through the neighborhoods. So here's my point, if you want something that's reminds you of a road bike, but was born as a hybrid, this would be the way to go.
