There are few things that we can do as a family that everyone loves because our kids are 10 years apart so they share few interests. Riding bikes on the trail near our house is one thing we all love and definitely something we plan on doing more of once these 90 degree summer days come to an end.

My husband has had the same bike for years. It’s been his go-to mountain bike and he even recently spent another $60 upgrading the seat to make it more comfortable. But recently, he made a huge upgrade to the Kent Northwoods Springdale Men’s 21-Speed Hybrid bike and he’s not looked back.

Kent Northwood men's bike

The Kent Northwoods Springdale 21 Speed Hybrid bike for men is a recreational bike that allows for a more comfortable upright riding position. First, let’s talk about that seat. Remember how my husband spent money trying to make his bike more comfortable? Within the first moments of riding his new Kent bike, he said “This is the most comfortable seat I’ve ever ridden on!” That’s a huge statement considering the cash we dropped on his old bike.

How cool is that rear rack? This bike is awesome for riding, but the look of it is pretty cool, too!

Kent Northwood Springdale bike has a classic look and a comfy ride

I, and more importantly my husband, loves the classic look of the Kent Northwoods Springdale Men’s 21- Speed Hybrid bike. Besides having that fantastic rear rack, it has front and back fenders that give it an old-style look. It actually is perfect for around-town commuting because it features hand-crafted lightweight aluminum framing and 700c tires that, along with that seat, create a comfortable ride.

It’s equipped with Shimano components including a Shimano Tourney rear derailleur. This is what moves the chain from cog to cog on the rear of the bike, and Shimano makes some of the best! The Northwoods Springdale offers 21 speeds for easy adjustability up and down hills and has linear pull brakes for confident stopping power.

Northwoods Springdale bike review

It’s a pretty perfect bike for him overall and I’m a little jealous! I may have to check out the Northwood Springdale Women’s version, especially considering they’re both so affordable. Most of the assembly was already done when it was shipped to us, and it has a kickstand. We’ve found that many bikes, especially ones that the kids have, don’t have kickstands.

If you’re looking for a comfortable bike with a smooth ride, definitely check out the Kent Northwood Springdale 21-speed hybrid bikes! Be sure to follow Kent Bicycles on Twitter, too!
