She was pretty much full-grown so I thought I'd get her something a little better then the kids bikes, but not as expensive as my Cannondale or my wife's Gary Fischer.

I went to 3 stores trying different bikes and this bike was by far the most comfortable and fit best with my posture.

I went to 3 stores trying different bikes and this bike was by far the most comfortable and fit best with my posture. With most bikes I am always hunched over and most of my weight would go to my wrists and then my neck and shoulders would be pinched, but not with this bike, most of my weight is upright on the seat. I ended up buying the bike at Sports Authority so I did not have any problems with putting it together or missing parts.

I bought a Vital-2 2 years ago for my then 13 year old daughter. She was pretty much full-grown so I thought I'd get her something a little better then the kids bikes, but not as expensive as my Cannondale or my wife's Gary Fischer. She tried out about 20 bikes over the course of a month, including some pretty expensive models. But she kept coming back to this odd looking Vital 2. She just said it was more comfortable, more upright and easier to ride. Given the relatively low price for a bike, I didn't really hesitate to buy it.
Her bike came with Shimano Altus shifters and Tektro brakes. These are good manufacturers, although you have to realize that they make dozens of levels and styles of parts. The point is that these parts are certainly better than any no-name brand you might see on a cheap department store bike. The only issue I've ever had with the bike is that because of the unique frame design, it is not a particularly easy bike to hang on a trailer-hitch style bike rack. We use one of those removable top-bars to make the job easier.
As I mentioned, the ride of this bike is very upright and the wheel base is a little shorter than most other girls bikes. That upright cruiser-style position is what she likes so much about it. No crunched back or tingling palms at the end of a long ride. The trade-off is that this bike is not rocket fast...well, perhaps more accurately, the rider's position prevents one from going rocket fast.
Maybe a different way to put it is like this. My sister has a couple of pretty high-end bikes. But when she needs to exercize one of her giant dogs, she breaks out her 40+ year old Schwinn 3-speed. Why? Because it is upright enough for her to be able to ride it with one hand while handling a dog or two with the other.

Color Name: Metal PurpleSize Name: Small/15-Inch Frame
I absolutely love this bike. I have had it for 3 years (bought at a massive chain store aka Sports Authority), and just this weekend, both my front and back wheels were stolen off the bike locked among about ten other bikes in a card access building in University Housing. Since these are 700-40c, replacements are horribly expensive and ridiculously hard to come by... Also, I have only found one bike shop that did not have to special order tubes, including before mentioned chain store.

I have found this to be an excellent bike for commuting long and short distance, but be aware of the difficulty in getting even minor parts, such as tubes!
