Like most performance bikes, the disc brakes may need to be adjusted by a professional. Wheels seem a bit heavier than similar bikes.

A few reports of bikes arriving with faulty parts.
An excellent choice for riding in traffic, as the 21-speed drive train offers seamless shifting. Flat handlebars; responsive wheels. Priced on the lower end of the spectrum.
Challenging to assemble, and even if you do it yourself, the brakes may need to be tweaked by a professional. Seat is hard and not very comfortable.
Ideal for ladies who like to carry gear on their rides, as it comes with a handy rack. Attractive styling; rugged yet lightweight; easy to ride on trails and city streets.
Only offers 7 speeds, but this won't concern everyone. Difficult to assemble. Seat is uncomfortable, and shock absorption could be better.

Women’s performance bikes provide a wide range of use cases. Performance bikes have quite a few features aimed at making them comfortable to ride. The frame on a women’s performance bike will be engineered to fit women. This means the handlebars will be closer to the seat than on a men’s bike. Female riders won’t have to feel like they’re stretching to reach the handlebars. The gap between the handlebars on women’s performance bikes will be narrower, too. These bikes may have an extra low gear that simplifies hill climbing for less experienced riders. Performance bikes for women tend to allow the rider to sit more upright than other bike styles. This makes the bicycle comfortable to ride, while giving you good visibility. You’ll love riding these bikes for speed or distance, as they are especially smooth on paved roads.
