Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: no suspension
I brought this particular bike for two main reasons. 1) My friend had had a Trek which I borrowed before it was stolen (that's how popular they are) and it was the easiest bike to ride. 2) I wanted something that was effortless to use, slick, well built - to use for short-medium journeys instead of the car. This Trek lived up to previous experience and my intentions. It's lightwight, beautifully designed, and the black colour doesn't allow it to stand out too much among other bikes, so it becomes less of a target (a big problem with new/expensive bikes).
I rode the bike home from Brighton to Worthing in high winds without the need to stop, it glided, even into the wind! A far comparison from my previous bike. But despite being an ease to ride, it still gives a good workout on the legs that can be felt afterwards - not uncomfortable but noticeable.
If i have to critisise it for anything, it would be that it doesn't have any suspension. I wish I'd checked this beforehand but it's not a big problem. My friends Trek had saddle suspension which really took the bump off. Alternatively the saddle is comfortable and the frame is very strong to bare the brunt.

While at Uni, had to buy a new bike due to old one breaking. Decided to spend a bit more than usual. Best decision I've made. Such a quick, light bike. Couldn't recommend it more

Fast, light and very agile

I have had this bike for just under a month now and I have to say I love it. It was my first step up into serious bikes and I immediately found myself soaring through the streets with a lot less effort than my previous bike meaning that my cycle range has more than tripled.
However I did have a few problems with the bike at first, starting with the handlebars coming off whilst I was cycling. I'm not sure if this was the bike's fault or the person who assembled it but luckily I didn't crash. The next day I found that the front wheel was very loose, which also would have caused a serious accident. Soon after that, the seat dislodged and became very un comfortable.
All these problems were quickly resolved and I havent had any issues in the last few weeks. I'm not a very gentle rider but This bike seems to put up with me nicely. There's no suspension so you feel ever little bump in the road but soon you don't really notice it. I take it on the roads, pavements and it even seems to cope with dirt tracks and rocky country off road paths.
I definatly recommend it for first time buyers, commuters and amateur cyclists everywhere.
