    Bought this bike 3 weeks ago and have since put 114 miles on it. First off let me address the issues pigeonpigeon brought up in his bad review. There are NO nuts and/or washers for the front axle of this bike as it’s a quick release front wheel. He said the front fork was backwards, this is for packaging, the fork is turned inward to take up less space in the box, simple fix, turn it outward before installing the handlebars like the instructions point out. As for the front axle being too short, rotate the quick release arm counter clockwise (simply loosen it) and it goes right on. All of this was covered in the instructions. Moving on. I was looking for a decent entry level road bike, after years of mountain biking I had a clear understanding of what to look for in a quality bike. Not knowing if I wanted to go all out with road cycling I set aside a small budget and I knew doing this put me into a lower level of quality and I was okay with that as I know my way around bikes to work with what I got. Yet what I got with this bike was more than I expected. Very well built, rides very smooth, and the comfort was much more than I expected. For those of you that are new to the idea of getting a road bike be sure to budget for a good set of cycling shorts with the padding built in, as road bike saddles (seat) are built for a totally different purpose than any other bike seat. There is a great pair on amazon for $30 and it makes road biking MUCH more rewarding and enjoyable. Yet I will say this saddle is very well built, and more comfortable than some of my friends’ $100 saddles. Also I don’t mean to sound like your mom here, but a comfortable helmet should be a must as well. Had a few close calls with drivers finding it more important to respond to a text than to look out for people on bikes. Cheap insurance for a worst case scenario. I am 5’ 9” with a 30" inseam and this bike fits me perfect with the saddle set 2" above bottoming out, yet anyone under a 28" inseam may struggle with this bike as it might be a bit big for them. A friend of mine is 6’ 3” and after some seat adjusting he was very comfortable on it as well. The bike is very light and that makes for enjoyable long rides. The handle bars are also very comfortable and I was quite impressed with them. This bike could use a setup at a local bike shop to really dial it in. Out of the box it performs well but a little rough around the edges, something your local bike shop can smooth out for you for about $30 Now to the cons. The breaks, they are super cheap, but heck they stop the bike so I can’t complain too much. And after some fine tuning they work well, not great, but well. Keep in mind you could always change them out with better ones. Also, the tires, they have quite a bit more tread on them for a road bike tire. They work, but less tread will make you faster and less resistance to work with on long rides. Yet like I said I have 114 miles on mine and have not found it too much of a downfall to change out, and if you are going for fitness then the small resistance will work in your favor. Shifting on this bike is quiet and smooth once the derailer is all dialed in. All in all this is a fantastic value for the money, looking forward to hundreds of more miles on this bike. For $200 I’m honestly blown away with what I got.

    I have to give this bike a 5 star rating, as for the price it is more than you can expect, even though it has a few weak points. The aluminum frame is well built and the tig welds look solid and clean. The overall appearance is very nice and people believe you paid way more than you actually did. The shimano gear set shifts smooth, although I would have preferred a different location for the shift levers as I sometime accidentally hit them with my knee while coming out of the saddle, especially when climbing a steep hill, causing the bike to shift gears when not intended. The set screws on the upper brake levers would work their way loose during riding, but a drop of blue loctite solved that issue. The threads on those screws seem a bit sloppy. This bike is a great value and a perfect platform to upgrade into a fantastic road machine by upgrading the lesser quality items like brakes and tires and still spend half what a bike shop would charge for a similar set up.

    Sweetest Road Bike Ever

    I own and have owned many, many bicycles over lots of years. Bought this bike because of its price and because it had dual brake levers. In other words you can actuate the brakes from two positions: Upright, gripping the straight top of the handlebar; or, in the traditional road bike crouch using the curved part of the bar. I own two other more expensive road bikes - one has a carbon-fiber frame and forks and is many times more expensive than this bike. Let me tell you, though, for every day riding this bike is the sweetest I have ever owned. Yes the tires are slightly larger for a 700C bike but it is no problem - softer ride and very hard to notice any increased pedal effort. It is stable and comfy at all speeds. And this thing shifts gears so well - effortless and precise - love it. The gear set is perfect for anyone short of a hard core competitor. Three chain rings make it easier to select a comfortable gear. I would agree with the experienced reviewer that the brakes are a little weak, but they do the job well enough. The only change I would recommend is a better seat. I just rode this bike across town and back and it was pure joy - effortless and fast. Snick up and down through the gears - swoosh and zoom! A fantastic value and more fun to ride than any bike I ever had. Highly recommended.
