Its lightweight aluminum frame boasts an upright, easy pedaling riding position that allows you to put your feet on the ground for easy starts and stops.

To keep you rolling, the Expedition's 26-inch rims spin free and easy, while the 21-speed Shimano drivetrain provides plenty of gear range to climb the hills. Other fine touches include a riser handlebar, flat-resistant tires and a luxuriously comfortable Specialized saddle.

    I am a fifty eight year old male who enjoys riding bicycles. I ride five miles in the morning after breakfast and five miles in the evening after dinner. I purchased a expedition sport thirty days ago and have been putting the bike to the test. I have gone to bicycle trails and have gone on every bike route I could find. ihave rode all over town looking for rough roads so I could give a honest review. I enjoy the front suspension it works great and the adjustable upright handle bars keep you in a upright postion so your arms and shoulders do not get sore,my hands have not fallen asleep, like most mountain bikes.it has a big compspsfortable seat with springs under it and the seat post has a dampener in it. the twenty one speed shimano and twist grips work flawlessly and the brakes actually stop you. the tires are puncture resistant.i think this is a best buy in comfort bikes for the

      I am fifty eight and have been riding mountain bikes for the last ten years,only to receive sore shoulders and wrists and a sore lower back, after going to the bicycle shop and looking at all the new types of bikes,I purchased a new expedition sport and have been riding it now for the last thirty days putting it to the test on all the local bike trails. the sales person told me that this bike had a five star rating and was very popular with people in the forty five to sixty five age bracket, but I recommend it to any body looking for a good comfortable ride. I believe it is the best bike for the buck in comfort bikes, great front suspension and seat and with the angle of the handle bars you sit upright so there is no lower back pain after a good five mile ride. the brakes work great to. I would recommend this bike to anyone looking for a all purpose bike.

        This bike is SO comfortable, it eliminates the need to go to the gym and sit on the exercise bike. The only thing is the break release is really difficult to attach after you put the front bike tire back on. I hope it gets easier, but it made my back ached because it took so long to connect it. Make sure you try that out a couple of times first at the shop.

          Bought this bike to replace a 2002 Cannondale Road Warrior. It was half the price, and for my specific purpose, twice the bike. I've been on the Rock Island Trail several times with this bike and it feels like it was custom built for the purpose. The fat tires can handle any gravel, mud, mulch the trail serves up, but you can still get respectable speed on paved surfaces. Fun and easy to ride. The closest I have ever been as a middle aged adult to capturing the fun and freedom of my childhood bike. The riding position is very comfortable, but you'll probably want additional padding for longer rides (> 20 miles)

          A friend let me take his out and within the first 100 feet it convinced me this was the bike! I have a vintage Raleigh from college & a Cannondale mountain bike. They are work to ride and your hands go numb, your butt and scrotum hurt and you get a kink in your neck from the position you have to hold. The SE Sport is like riding an air bike and 15 miles is like nothing. Hills on roads or treks on paths in the woods are great. The 21 speed let's you change gears and it works smoothly, seamlessly and flawlessly. I still have a blast on this bike after a year of riding it and get a smile when I know I'm getting ready to take it out...like that sports car in the garage waiting for you. I wanted the silver with tan seat and tan grips from last year and had to do a nationwide search to find this specific one...This is one that I will ride as long as my legs work. I'm in N.C. & this bike is in Kansas. I'm going to get it in a few weeks...I feel like I'm going to get a puppy. Can hardly wait...that's how good this bike is!

            I love this bike, I picked up the Blue one and all i get is positive compliments on the looks and the comfort(when I allow them to test it). Bike is easy to ride, I purchased the bike after testing trek,Giant,Jamis,DB,Haro... I purchased a Globe for my wife and its very similar to this bike.. I ride mostly to get back in shape after having major leg surgery and this bike is so easy to operate that I can ride for miles from the first day...

              This bike is a great way to get yourself moving! If you get off the road and into a little sand, you can peddle right through it. With my back and neck injuries, I have been able to cycle again.

              Able to ride with my kids, and don't get tired doing so. Seat squeaks, and front brake pads squeeze the rims a bit uneven. Gears shift nicely.....nice suspension to handle bumps, etc. When the gears are in "high", i.e. 3/7, I can really get a lot out of each leg pump. Seat could be a drop more comfortable.

                It's been many years since I owned a bike. I'm a big guy (290+ lbs.) and have a bad back. This upright bike really takes the pressure off my back & is very comfortable for my size. The seat is very easy to adjust and gives the bike a nice ride. I have no excuses to not exercise with such a nice riding bike.
