              Outstanding riding position, love the tires and brakes. Excellent handling on and off road. I did change the seat for a bit more cushion. Took the bike back to the shop for minor adjustments within the first 30 days as recommended by the dealer. Just a solid ride and value.

                    I am 70 andride 80-100 miles a week on gravel and paved bike paths and roads. I love the front shock. Mine (XL) weighs 30.5# so I get a good workout. I am going to get the Carbon Quick 2 for longer road rides.

                          This website is misleading and inaccurate. So many parts are listed wrong compared to their 2013 catalog.

                                This is an awesome bike, this is my second year riding and I've push myself past every goal I've set. It's light wieght and handling makes it easy to become more confident no matter if I'm on the streets or an light trail. The Quick cx 3 is a great way to get back into riding, love the disc breaks.

                                      At 55 and getting back into bicycling after 35 years, this is the perfect bike. It is capable of going anywhere, in comfort, with handling and style. I go on rides with the local bike club and rides with just my wife, the rides are usually 10 to 35 miles in length . Not a lightweight road bike or all out mountain bike, but don't sell it short, it's the real deal Dual Sport bike. I have no problem keeping up with the other riders with their road specific bikes, 12-15 mph avg. When the paved roads gets rough I just reach down and unlock the forks and it's all smooth again, the other riders are suffering. I ordered the orange one, couldn't be happier, I've gotten a lot of compliments from other riders. I'm planning on buying a full-on road bike in the spring for more spirited rides, but I have a feeling this CX3 will be my go to bike for many years to come.
