From the manufacturer
Get out, enjoy some fresh air, and gain some fitness on the Vital 2. Sport Hybrid Geometry provides a comfortable, stable ride, and the step-through design makes it easy to ride in street clothes. An adjustable stem lets you customize the height and angle of the handlebars to get a perfect fit. The HL Zoom suspension fork works with the KindShock suspension seatpost to gently smooth out bumps in the road. Three gears up front and seven in the back provide ample gears to get up and down the hills. Wide 700x40c Kenda tires roll efficiently on the pavement and have cornering treads for good grip on gravel paths. The Vital 2 is a low-maintenance bike path companion that's always ready to roll.

-very comfortable to ride (the high handle bar and low step bar is fabulous)
-easy to change gears
-people frequently comment that it’s a nice looking bike, which being in a city I worry about (I think the lavender stands out, it’s new, and the peddles and gear box look well made).
-should not have the opinion to assemble yourself. I tried with my boyfriend who is very mechanically skilled, and we still ended up with one break pad upside down (3 hrs later). Our bike shop said they don’t think anyone but pros should put together a bike. It takes them (pros with the equiptment) 30 min, and they know how to balance the breaks, tune the gears, screw in screws with the right amount of friction. Doing it yourself could be dangerous and bad for the bike. Only have someone put it together in person because a lot of the things get unbalanced in transit apparently.
-the gears don’t work well in 6th or 7th + middle speed.
-The shifters are opposite on each side (on the right, the bottom one shifts down, but in the left the bottom one shifts up - unsure if this is normal)
-Accessories add up (kickstand, water bottle holder, lights, bell, splash guards, etc)
Overall, it’s such good value for money (even with extra $150+ for assembly and accessories), I still gave it a 5 star rating.
I will update this review after some time has passed and I have some miles under my belt.
