WE TRIED IT: Diamondback's Serene Citi

Confession: I want to be the girl who pedals to the farmer’s market (in a cute skirt, natch!) to buy fresh-cut flowers for my Nana. But in reality, I’m more the kind of girl who’s like, OMG! I need a new workout…maybe I should get a bicycle.
That’s why I was excited to check out Diamondback’s Serene Citi, which is made for the girl who wants to ride easy trails or to zip around town. It can go the distance but still looks girly and retro. When I took it for a spin, the ride was totally smooth, even though I hadn’t been on a bike in ages. The brakes were responsive (key in my city neighborhood) and the seat was cushy. Fab for doing more than a couple miles.
The bike is pretty reasonably priced (for, you know, a bicycle), though the accessories add up. I needed to buy a lock, a helmet and, yeah, I’m saving pennies for a basket. It’s a little heavy, so if you’re a triathlon girl, it might not be your best bet. But if you just wanna cruise around and ride with your BFFs, the Serene Citi might be a fab pick.
