Editing required

Needs editing: Instead, they’re their interests are piqued by the newer, more comfortable models broadly referred to as “lifestyle” bikes.

Surprises: I'm a member of several online writing and editing networks, and it's always shocking (or maybe surprising) when a network member makes an almost illiterate post on the network. It happened this morning, and it amazes me that this person is in the newspaper business. Or saddens me.
