I'm 53 years old and had bought a Schwinn bike (it had a reputation as one of the best bike the last time I bought a bike) to ride for pleasure and errands to save on rising fuel prices. It was a poor ride, the gears were inconsistent and the chain kept falling off while riding it. So I blamed 3 falls on the bike, chucked it and bought the Raleigh Comfort Bike on a recommendation. It's a little pricey but well worth every penny. It's easy to maneuver and the suspension makes it a smooth ride. It's not about high performance but the gears, which are tabbed and mounted on the handlebars and easily changed, make uneven terrain a breeze. The only negative is the homogenous manual so specific model variables are not addressed. Sometimes it's a guessing game as to whether the manual applies to your bike or not. Highly recommend the bike.
