      Comments:

      This was a bike my wife picked out after trying a marin and specialized as my family got into mountain biking. We have done various rail trails and some easier singletrack. I explained to my wife the importance of a good bike and a good frame for enjoyable riding experience. At first she didnt believe me, but the best comment she gave on one of our first rides was the bike seemed to want to go over roots and rocks with little effort or trouble. All the signs of a good bike. Now this isnt a XC racing machine, but it is a great bike and the frame is solid. The parts can be replaced over time but the riding mechanics cannot. A good solid bike for what it is definity 5 stars.

          I tried many bikes, including hybrids. This bike is versatile, you can go off road or in town. I like that the shocks can locked off. Great fit for woman's body. I had no back pain or soreness after first long ride. I had the bike store put a little smoother and narrower tire on it, than the one the manufacturer put on the bike, this made the road riding great!

          Haven't had a new bike since '97 so this was a real treat. The fit is excellent for women with superb comfort. Haven't done much riding yet, but can tell I'll be having better performance rides on the trails with the Skye SL.

            I went to some stores just to take a look at a new bike... In fact, after trying at least 4 models of other brands, at the moment I tried this bike I decided to take it with me. It is great, and best of all, it is sooooo comfortable, fitting my body and not the contrary. I use it everyday since the day I bought it, riding along my neighborhood and at the park to burn some calories and let the stress behind.

              I thought I'd never find the perfect fit for me, but from the moment I got on, I was totally hooked. This is such a great ride, it has inspired me to reach even further. I actually can't wait to ride it everyday.

                best bike I have ever ridden. I have tried women specific bikes before and I am glad they finally came out with the larger sizes.
