These are really fun bikes. I just passed 46,125 miles on mine. I have had minimal work done on it. These are very reliable bikes. I use mine a lot around town since it is so nimble, hops curbs, goes through ditches, flooded roads and anything else thrown at it. I have a couple of street bikes for longer distances but this one is a blast for the short commutes or some trail riding. I'm sure you'll love one when you get it for those fire roads.I had a feeling that might be the answer I would get. I will start moving up the line looking at larger bikes until I find something that fits my body and needs. Thanks again for your reply. If a TW 200 pops up on Craigslist I may just get one for local fire roads.
