Anonymous - Awesome   February 13, 2013

I love this bike! I was looking for something that would help me get back into shape and enjoy riding with my kids. I can attach a Burley to the back with my two kids inside and it doesn't feel like I'm pulling a semi-truck. I road it more than any other bike I've ever owned this past summer and have even purchased an indoor trainer for the winter and cooler days so that I can stay in shape. I'm hoping to get some longer distances on it this next riding season!!

TCGirl - Good Starter   January 31, 2013

I got last years version of the Vita because I signed up for a triathlon and wanted something better. SOOO MUCH faster than my old schwinn. I gave it 4 stars because now I really want a road bike with the drop bars for longer distances. I love biking!

Anonymous - Great bike!   January 22, 2013

I'm not a racer, so I was overwhelmed the first time I came into a bike shop and saw all the expensive road bikes. I like to ride around the lakes and get a good workout in the summer. The Vita fit my budget and is very easy to ride. I also put a rack on it so I can commute to work when the weather is nice. It's been a great bike.
