DS Series is the ultimate hybrid: part refined city bike, part adventurous trail ride. Fast 700c wheels, capable suspension, and a light, strong frame make DS the go-anywhere choice.
Why choose between road and trail? DS is built for adventure on or off the road, ready to take you from week to weekend and back in comfortable, confident style.
- Strong, light aluminum frame is road quick, trail tough
- DuoTrap S compatible: track your fitness, map your miles
- Road/trail versatility plus rack/fender compatibility
- Dual sport geometry is fast, sporty, and all-day comfortable
My favorite thing is the ability to add stuff onto the bike, the weight, and the handle bars. I'm suprised more bikes don't use these for comfort and to take pressure off the wrists. I've never owned a bike with suspension before and this feature excites me for when I'm riding on trails and unpaved roads. I have town it around the neighborhood and to a friend's house over 5 miles away... the ride is smooth. The seat is good, it doesn't pinch me anywhere unkind like others out there and plenty of cushion.
The only thing I do wish it had were more options for mounting fixed accessories. For my daily use, I'd like a spot on the left or right side of the frame near the fork (out of the way of my legs) so I can mount a holster for my carry weapon so it doesn't print through my shirt while I'm riding.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
