regular.

Just a note for anyone buying this, it's a size medium (17.5 inch) frame. The ad says it's for 5'8-6'3 in height which is definitely incorrect.

I would say it's more for 5'8 to 5'10 tops.

I'm 6'0 even and typically ride a 19 inch mountain bike frame/

I'm looking to upgrade my Giant Roam 3. Although this is not it, the price is really good given the components. The only thing I will tell you is that if you're going to do most of your riding on roads and regular trails (beaten paths, crushed limestone etc) you will NOT need a suspension and it will only add unnecessary weight. This one is 33lbs which is on the heavy side as far as newer bikes go.

Do they sell the ladies' version? My wife is 5', so I assume this is out of the question for her? Thanks

The link mentions 33 pounds. Hard so to say if that includes packing material.

Is this a good bike?

CT sells a Schwinn that they say is regular 600+ hybrid for 399 and the reviews are good.

And yes, I know CT exaggerates on their prices.

Is this company better?

I’m 6’. Would this be horrendously uncomfortable for casual use? 349 is the right price :( the xc00 would be a lot more

is it just me or does the handlebar look really low? I just want a normal bike so I can bike with my son, so casual street use.

This bike is on 29" tires not the traditional 26" so that adds 3" to the height. If you have a store nearby I'd pop in to check for comfort. Could be the 17.5" frame height sizing is accurate with the larger rims.

Low end wire-bead tires on these bikes only cost $15-$20.

Tires start costing $50-$100 when you get into dual/triple compound Kevlar tires.
