Bikes not actually in my hands yet but just got notice from UPS it's out for delivery :giggle: I haven't been on two wheels since 2010 when I crashed my Harley and probably been since the mid 90's that I have rode a traditional peddle bike.. I'm super stoked too get back out there!
 
50 miles logged and this bike is far exceeding all my expectations! I'm traversing trails with sections that I had to walk my old MTB 30 years ago and now doing them with ease at 60 years old!

Thanks for the suggestion Rick, I almost opted for that exact post because of it's budget pricing but ultimately ordered the suntour NCX.. First thing I did was change seats (however the factory seat was surprisingly comfortable) to a Giant city connect and honestly probably didn't need anything else, did 10 miles down a gas line right of way today and felt zero discomfort, little "choppy" at times so hopefully the seat suspension will smooth that out a bit, it should be here Saturday. Still tweeking my front suspension and tire pressure for best ride so a little more room for improvement there also.

I have the Cloud 9 seat and the zoom seat post. So much better than the stock ride.
Good luck with the bike and be safe out there!

Thanks so much! The Cloud9 was on my short list as I hear it's a really great seat. I was at my local bike shop looking for a new lock and the owner recommended the Giant city connect seats, he told me if I wasn't completely blown away to just bring it back for a full refund.. the seat is simply amazing, super stiff but so comfortable.
