Ride quality was par for the course, given the aluminum frame and fork. The 700 x 35c tires are a good size for this application, but ride quality and grip are sacrificed for durability. We found it an equitable trade given that we had several flats on the Wabash with grippier, more supple tires, and no flats to speak of on the Urban Rush. Geometry is identical to the Wabash, with a bias toward stability that makes it less nimble than other road frames. On the plus side, Yamaha again used a full complement of 32 standard J-bend spokes with brass nipples front and rear—it’s not sexy, but it makes for a strong wheel that is easy to maintain and repair.
