Is Sixthreezero EVRYjourney a good bike?
Sixthreezero EVRYJourney is one of the most comfortable bikes you can buy right now. It’s a bike people buy to stay in shape, riding leisurely in the park or the neighborhood. But is this bike better than the other models of this brand? Let’s find out.
We already mentioned in another article that Sixthreezero Around the Block is a very comfortable bike as well. And to be frank, both bikes look very similar to most people. But there are a few important differences in the geometry of the frame. We will dive into more details within the article below.

EVRYjourney vs. Around the Block: Notable Differences
Sixthreezero EVRYjourney and Around the Block are two very similar bikes in terms of components and build. They have one big difference, though – the frame design.
EVRYjourney has a forward peddling design and Around the Block has totally upright seated position. The seat tube of Around the Block goes straight into the pedals, and you’re not forward peddling at all. What this means, in a nutshell, is that on Around the Block, you’re going to pedal directly below your hips, right in line with the seat and the pedals. And with EVRYjourney, you’re peddling about three inches in front of your hips.
With this small but at the same time significant difference, the EVRYjourney puts you in an even more relaxed position and kicks your hips forward a little bit. As a result, the seat will be in a bit lower position, and you can put your feet easily on the ground when you stop.
On Around the Block, you generate more power in comparison to EVRYjourney, but you get even better comfort with the EVRYjourney.
Another thing you need to consider is that with EVRYjourney, you might find it difficult to stand and ride uphills because of this geometry. This bike is really made for casual riding on flat terrains.
|EVRYjourney||Around the Block|
|Easier on the joints||+||–|
|Riding on a paved trail||+||–|
|Riding on a bumpy trail||–||+|
Another notable difference between the two models is that they use different tires. The Around the Block has slightly wider tires than the EVRYjourney so that the EVRYjourney will roll faster and smoother on well-paved trails. On the other hand, the Around the Block is better at absorbing bumps a little bit better.
The seat of the EVRYjourney is also a bit better than the one on the Around the Block. They’re both excellent comfortable saddles made of foam, but the one EVRYjourney is fitted with better materials ( more dense foam ) and stitching.
Other Features and Components
Sixthreezero EVRYjourney comes equipped with fenders and a rear rack for optional baskets as standard, which is a nice feature for a bike in this price range.
Just like most other Sixthreezero models, this one is available in many different color and speed options. The men’s version is available in three colors ( matte black, matte grey, and steel blue ), and the women’s version is available in three other colors ( cream, navy, teal, and mint green ).
Both men’s and women’s bikes are available in four different speed options, just like the Around the Block: 1-Speed, 3-Speed, 7-Speed, and 21-Speed. As always, single-speed bikes are good for simple riding on relatively flat terrains, and the multi-gear versions are better for climbing hills.
And just like the other models of this bike brand, the shifting is provided by entry-level Shimano components. The shifters are Shimano Index Revo Shifter, and the derailleurs are Shimano Tourney. Nothing to complain about here, you get a decent shifting experience, but you can’t compare it to a second or third-tier Shimano shifting hierarchy, which is much smoother and quieter.
When we talk about braking, the single-speed version comes with coaster brakes on the back and a handbrake ( V-brake ) on the front. The multi-speed versions come with front and rear V-brakes as standard.
Comfortable Seat and Handlebar Grips
This bike features a very similar seat and handlebar as the Around the Block. The seat is a wide, cushy one made of packed foam and provides serious softness. The same could be said about the handlebar grips. They’re made of black synthetic leather and are extremely easy to hold even for prolonged periods of time.
EVRYjourney is Customizable
This bike comes with a preinstalled rear rack which means mounting different accessories on top of the bike. There is a wide variety of nice accessories to buy.
You can customize your new EVRYjourney with some very cool accessories. You can put a baby seat, a basket, a cup holder, and other available accessories on the frame.
Different EVRYjourney Models
This $799.99 version comes with 26-inch wheels and 7-speed Shimano internal gear. It’s a great option for anyone who needs a maintenance-free ride for every possible scenario. It also comes with front and rears V-brakes and high gloss chrome components. The front and rear fenders match the color of the frame. It’s available in men’s and women’s specific frames.
This $2399.99 electric bike is a relatively new model and has a lot to offer. It comes with a 500 Watt Rear Hub Drive Motor and 4-inch semi-slick FAT tires. It’s a capable e-bike with a very comfortable frame, just like the other EVRYjourney models.
You might be surprised, but this bike is also available in the tricycle version. Yes, tricycles still exist today, and they even sell quite well among seniors and people with disabilities. This model is a bit pricey, at $799.99, but it’s one of the best tricycles available right now. It’s equipped with the same good components as all other EVRYjourney models.
The Bottom Line
In conclusion, Sixthreezero EVRYjourney is an excellent cruiser-style bicycle for easy casual riding for the joints. EVRYjourney has a huge fanbase, especially among women in the coastal areas of the states. We recommend it for anybody who wants to get in shape or commute short to medium distances, especially for people with low budgets ( below $500 ), who need a light cruising bike.
