Sue from PA submitted this review on February 23rd 2005 at 08:08 PM. Sue is an end user who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Wonderful piece of equipment, fast, smooth, love the seating position for it enables the rider to use the abdominal muscles so it puts less strain on the elbows and wrists--a plus for sure!! The first time out on the bike the reduction of stress on the elbows and wrists for me was obvious. Having ridden an XLT for four years, I upgraded to the Gold last August--2004. It is a much easier bike to ride but does take come adjustment to the new seating and cranking position. It has adjustable foot rests but the new user needs to be aware that if he/she shortens them they may have to be cut. The design requires the cut or the length of the tube will prevent the rider from turning the bike.
Weaknesses:Top End needs to upgrade their chain rings to ramped and pinned ones that would enable the STI shifters to do their job. Shifting is awkward, one has to overshift and shift back down. The current chain rings force the chain to move itself and puts additional stress on the derailleur. New chain rings are being made for mine. Left brake cable needs some "tweaking" to keep it from becoming tangled in the hand cranks! Without that "tweaking" it makes for some unexpected and sudden stops!!!!
Comments:It's a great product and with the recommended upgrades it would be an almost perfect piece of machinery!! I ride 50-100 miles a week and the Gold definitely flies faster and further with less effort. It also handles steep grades with greater ease.
