TL/DR Sun Bicycles' North Bay is a hybrid bike with 21 speeds and 700x38 tires.
It takes bumps in the sidewalk well, and the comfort saddle helps you feel them less.
So this is a hybrid bike that was created for pleasure rides or getting around town. It seems to me that it would be great for either. The up right geometry is comfy and allows for looking around on your cruise through Black Hand Gorge. And the frame feels sturdy even when you hit some decently sized bumps in the sidewalk.
It's equipped to handle hills with plenty of gears, and the saddle keeps you from feeling jolted when taking bumps. Overall, I think it's a solid bike.
