Anyone got one of these? My local bike shop was trying to convince me to purchase on of these. He recommended it. But can't seem to find a review of it.

I do have one of these. Having done a few hundred miles on it now, I have to say that I really like it - BUT - the wheels are really crap. They are way too narrow in section for the tyres, and mine both lost spoke tension on the first ride. I now have a Mavic Crossone on the back, and will be putting another on the front as soon as I can afford to. I should perhaps point out that I do at least half my mileage off road, and I'm not exactly a racing snake. Apart from the wheels, the bike is great, and I'd have no hesitation in recommending it if you can solve the wheel issue.
