The Coda Sport has a few nice upgrades from the base model that help you make longer rides efficient--the lightweight chro-moly steel frame is designed to put you in a slightly more forward position, letting you distribute your weight over the whole bike while still keeping that head up to see traffic! Comes stocked with more gears, stronger rims, and puncture-resistant tires.
