From comfortable cruising to commuting and riding for fitness, Specialized's Expedition Sport ensures you'll have a great ride. 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. Up front, a plush SR SunTour suspension fork smooths out all the bumps for maximum comfort and control. 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.

My wife and I bought matching 2013 Expeditions: hers a step-through and mine not. The ride on each is very comfortable with the front suspension and the seat suspension and cushioned seat. The ability to put one's feet one the ground while still seated is a plus for the over-50 age that we are at. Mechanically very sound, no major issues with the set-up or the ride.The Revo shifters are easy to use, especially for me with the touch of arthritis that I have. The v brakes are a bit tricky to get just right, especially if there is even the slightest wobble in either wheel. The rear wheel drive train on this bike is a freewheel-style, not a cassette. One needs to know that should you ever want to make any modifications yourself. The mega-range freewheel by Shimano works quite well: all the shifts are crisp and smooth, and the 34t gear is a real plus when going up a steep incline. The chainrings are setup for a mountain bike-type use, not for an on-the-road-all-the-time usage. I find I use the 24t chainring very little. Top speed on this bike is about 20 mph (I have a bicycle computer on mine), so keep that in mind when considering. All in all both of us are very happy with the choice we made in purchasing the Expedition Sport, and we would certainly recommend.
I rode a mountain bike for years but after I turned 40, I couldn't ride it anymore. My neck, back, and wrists would hurt after less than 30 minutes. I tried a beach cruiser for a while but that didn't help much. I quit riding for a few years thinking my bike riding days were over. Then I tried this bike and I was totally amazed at the difference this bike makes. It puts you in a perfect upright riding position. I can ride this thing all day and not get tired or have muscle pains. I look forward to riding every day now and when I'm on this thing, I don't want to get off of it. This is the most effortless bike I ever rode. It practically makes itself go. You don't even think about exercise when you ride this bike. It's just fun and enjoyable and that's all you think about when you're riding it. Of all the bikes I've owned in all my years, this is my favorite. If I ever wear this thing out, I'm getting another one for sure. There's only one more thing I'd like to see on a comfort bike and that's rear suspension. Why doesn't anybody make comfort bikes with rear suspension? The suspension seat and suspension seat post on this bike does work great though.
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)
