Sixthreezero EVRYJourney Full Review
More often than not, when thinking about bikes, we focus on carbon parts, marginal gains, high performance, and so on. Don’t get us wrong; we think all of these things are important. However, that often makes us forget one of the main aspects of cycling — it should be fun!
This was one of the main motivations at Sixthreezero when their engineers were building the EVRYjourney model. Their goal was to make a bike whose main characteristics would be comfort, fun, versatility, and attractive looks. By looking at the finished product, we can say that they have achieved all their goals!
One Bike for EVRYJourney
EVRYjourney is a mix between a hybrid bike and a beach cruiser with a comfy, laid-back geometry, that puts your body in an upright position.
It’s perfect both for short and tall riders since the pedals are positioned in front of the saddle; therefore, you can lower your saddle significantly and still stretch your legs fully when pedaling.
On top of that, it comes in four different colors: Teal, Navy, Cream, and Mint Green. You can also change the color of the saddle by choosing between brown, white, and black. Therefore, if you’re a woman, you can easily customize it to suit your unique personal style. For men, only the black frame is available.
What We Liked
Sixthreezero EVRYjourney does not try hard to be likable like many other brands and models do. It just tries to serve its purpose well and be your best friend when you need to get from point A to point B in a leisurely manner. That’s the first thing that we liked about it, which is reflected in the frame that this bike has.
It combines both retro and modern visual and building elements, the result of which is a one-size-fits-all frame. No need to go through the painful process of bike fitting, which is especially hard if you have an awkward build.
All you need to do is go to the Sixthreezero website, type in your height and weight, click a button, and you’ll get an answer whether this bike fits you or not. It’s as simple as that!
Several Speed Variations
Depending on what you need this bike for and where you live, you can get this bike with different speed combinations. The drivetrain is available as a 1-, 3-, 7-, and 21-speed.
If you live in a flat area or you plan to ride along the beach only, the 1-speed model will make things easy and simple for you and do the job well.
Single-speed bikes are also known to be pretty much maintenance-free since there are no derailleurs! Another great thing about it is that there’s a backpedal rear brake
Characteristics. Single-speed bikes also have no slack from the chain as there’s no derailleur on the rear. Those features make the single-speed a great choice when you really want to push the bike to its limits!
But, if you need to battle more hills or you want to be able to go a bit faster, consider one of the other three models with gears.
- 3-SPEED is also a great choice as you only have three sprockets in the rear and one in the front. Three gears is another great all-rounder set-up that’s widely used among cruisers. The main advantage is the best value&versatility combination.
- 7-SPEED cruisers are often picked by cyclists who have some biking background, and they simply know that they need the variation of gears. Seven-speed derailleur on a cruiser is great for both hilly and flat areas, going fast or cruising at slower speeds. A great choice for commuters who take their bikes out regularly.
- 21-SPEED allows you to max out the bike in its versatility. After all, they are perfect as laid-back commuter bikes, why not get the best of what’s there to offer!
One of the first things that you’ll notice when you look at this bike is the retro handlebar. It’s smooth and sexy, with recognizable old-fashioned lines. However, apart from looking amazing, a handlebar shaped like this has other purposes as well — it will make your rides a lot more comfortable and more relaxed by keeping your hands close to your body and putting you in an upright position.
This way, you will also have a good view of the traffic and your surroundings, which is vital for a city bike. Primarily as it is intended to be ridden in areas with a lot of people and traffic.
This Sixthreezero EvryJourney has incredible looks and style, but it performs really well on the road as well. Its frame is built of aluminum, whereas the fork is made of steel, so the weight of the bike is pretty low.
The frame is also equipped with a strong rear rack, where you can fit a child seat or use it to carry your groceries. It comes with semi-slick 26″x1.95″ tires that are great both for riding on the hot city asphalt and some hard-packed trails. This way, EVRYjourney justifies its name, as it is able to take you almost anywhere.
Finally, this bike comes with low-end Shimano derailleurs (either one or two, depending on the speed setup you choose) and V-brakes which are the best choice for the type of ride it is intended to do. Therefore, overall, the engineers at Sixthreezero did a thoughtful job, as every part on this bike is a piece of a puzzle that fit really well together in the end.
Are There Any Setbacks?
The first thing that we need to mention in this section before talking about any setbacks is that this bike usually costs between $350 and $600.
For that amount of money, you get everything that you expect, and EVRYjourney even surpasses some expectations. However, this Sixthreezero bike does not come without some considerations. For example, the one-size-fits-all principle is fantastic because of how easy it is to determine whether you can ride the bike or not. But, at the same time, there is a chance that you will not get the perfect fit in the end.
However, this rarely happens since you can change the geometry significantly by tinkering with the saddle and the handlebar. You should also remember that this is not a high-end performance bike. It has lower-end Shimano components that do an excellent job on leisurely rides and moderate daily commutes. If you need a bike to ride 20+ miles every day, you should look for a hybrid model.
But, all in all, we wouldn’t say that Sixtreezero EVRYjourney has some significant setbacks or any dealbreakers. If you want a fun bike to commute on or ride every day with your family, we say — go for it!
One Size Fits All!
After all, the bike is built for light cruising mainly with the capability to use as your everyday bike, too. I have personally owned a single-speed cruiser bike as a second runner alongside the road bike, and I seriously had no complaints after pretty rough and long use during the 10month-period.
I was surprised by how comfortable they really are, and indeed they have a lot to offer when it comes to enjoying your bike rides!
There’s literally no other bike type as comfortable as the cruiser bike, and SixThreeZero’s main focus is on cruiser/hybrid bikes. You simply can’t go wrong with it, when you are looking to have fun and good times!
