I have had my eye on Civilian bikes for awile. I have always admired the style and simplicity. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the price for the Ramble at Competitive Cyclist. I jumped on the opportunity and I could not be happier. Pictures don't do the bike justice. It is a work of art. Super clean lines, great aesthetics, high quality finishes and hardware, and it rides like a dream. Snappy out of the saddle but sill compliant and comfortable. It's no rocket but it's a great utility bike with style. Perfect for commuting, errands, or cruising the 'hood. The only negative I can think of is the chain guide is a bit flimsy but the bike looks a lot better without it anyway, so its a minor point for me.
