    The breezer inversion is a similar bike as well. I saw both at a local performance bike. They look competent but are most certainly not light, however light, cheap, strong, pick any 2. It looks like if definitely falls into the strong category. I have been debating getting the nicassio RC for the seattle bike commute. IGH, fenders, and looks great! Nice bikes in general.

    What does the Breezer weigh?

    Looks like the team is around 22lbs, the pro is a little more. I bet the marin's are comparable. I was playing around with a 4 corners at performance and it was not a light bike (https://www.marinbikes.com/bikes/family/4-corners) looked really capable and I do see people on them here (seattle) commuting so there is definitely people buying them. Nice and competent bikes in general.

    The Breezer is weird with a flat mount front brake and a IS rear brake. Kinda disfunctional in that respect. Like they had a frame and they got a fork and were like "whoops, oh well let's just put 2 different brakes on these, no one will notice. "
