I test rode the “women’s” version (mixte) of the Cityglide. This bike has a partial chaincase, fenders and rim brakes. This bike does not come with a rack.
I did not like how this bike handled and it was not comfortable for me – I felt quite stretched out like the handlebars were too far away. It also didn’t seem like it would be a good bike for commuting on – probably a good bike for occasional weekend rides, but definitely not a ride-everyday-kind-of-bike.
I would not recommend this bike to anyone – if they were looking for a casual weekend bike, they could get something similar for cheaper and if they were looking for a commuter, I don’t think it would be suitable for that.
Stay tuned for my next post with my impressions of the Brodie Section.
