Totally love this bike. A gentleman rides a black one through town (Prescott Valley, AZ) and looks smashing and cool. I've ridden a women's and loved it, but ended up with a Giant Suede instead because of the cranks/pedals forward. Still love the Simple 7 though.

I love my simple 7!!! Mine's a couple of years old, and an amazing metallic blue. It has served me well so far, is an easy ride (even for a person as lazy as me!) Great for trips around town, and looks very sassy!

My Simple Seven is the coolest bike on the block. It's about four years old, I ride it every day, and it gets tons of compliments. It's a women's bike in red with a front basket and I wouldn't trade it for anything!

My wife bought one back before we were together as a reward for losing weight. She loved it. Then it sat in the basement. I came along with other bikes and we went for rides. The 7sp mega-range setup might be great for around town, but in rural hills, not so good. She didn't like the jump from 2nd to 1st gear, and the bike was not geared low enough to use the other 6 gears in the hills. So I modded it a bit with Soma sparrow bars, a front triple chainring setup (different cranks), a rack and fenders. Much better now--useful as a commuter and grocery getter.
