2009 Gary Fisher Simple City 3W : Quick Review

Recently going out on a limb I pulled in a Gary Fisher Simple City 3W into our Trek Concept store in Charlotte, NC. We have been selling a lot of life style hybrids, cruisers and comfort bikes. I thought the Simple City really fit that niche and added character that the other bikes could have, but had to be purchased and added on.

When the bike arrived I quickly took it out of the box and built it up. The 3W is a 3 speed, and like it’s big sister the 8W, is internal geared bike. That means the bikes gears are inside the rear wheel or hub to be exact. This means no derailleur hanging off the back of the bike. Less maintenance and a cleaner, simpler look. It also means you can shift at anytime, even without pedaling. Less thinking, more riding.

Simple City 3W spring on forkThe 3W doesn’t come with the front basket that many people know the Simple for. The bike was designed as a front loader, to carry most the weight of errands up front. To accommodate and help control the bike with weight on the front end there is a spring that connects the fork to the bike frame so the front end steers very straight, and turning is very controlled.

The follow up is that the bike had a great response in the store and turned a lot of heads.  The color is much brighter than it shows up in photos, very unique.  It sold within a few days to a woman that walked in and had to have it.
