I got this bike as a graduation gift, and I love it! Although I occasionally use it for short rides on the road, I usually use it for recreational use in state parks. I've found that it handles very well both off-road and on-road. When I'm on the road or on paved trails, I can barely feel the gears shift. Off-road, I can feel the shift, but only a little. Even on the trails, the gear shifting is fluid and effortless as long as I keep the chain lubricated. The hydraulic brakes are great! The mechanisms are very smooth, and they make it much easier to stay in control going downhill. They were definitely worth the extra money since I use the bike for off-road riding. I love the way this bike handles; it's just pleasant to ride. Another reviewer mentioned that the bike is heavy, but I don't find it to be an issue for me at all. My main issue is that the tires don't provide optimal traction in some conditions. On really rough trails, they have a tendency to slide a little when I brake. This may have to do with the fact that I'm off-balance, but it does slow me down. However, as it is, these tires don't slow me down too much on the road, so it's a good thing for now since I'm using it for that purpose. Another issue is the fork, which isn't of the best quality possible considering the price I paid for the bike. I'll probably end up replacing it eventually, but it serves its purpose for now. Despite these details, I'm very satisfied with my purchase. It's a comfortable bike; I can ride all day without getting my butt getting sore the next day, which is one thing I've never experienced before. It's a great recreational bicycle, and I'm sure it's one I'll have for quite awhile.
