    Excellent road bike for starters

    This is the right road bike for someone thinking about getting into bicycling and on a budget. Stock setup with Shimano parts is very nice and adds a sense of stability and reliability. Being a former military person and was always in good shape and health, after being out for years and becoming one with the couch, with this road bike I am inspired to ride. Not only does the revo shifters shift smoothly for me, it makes it easy to ride up hills and on long stretches I have been able to reach 28.5 mph on flat stretches and 32 mph down hill. Also recommend a bike computer as well. I added a Bell Wireless for under $20. Yes maybe that isn't fast for many, but for me for now it is fine and probably all depends on your weight as the bike weighs in on the heavier side of 27lbs. This bike isn't made for professional competition, but it has been said over and over again in forums that it will perform well in events like Tour de Cure for local races. I haven't yet been able to enter in one, but I will soon. The main thing is I am off the couch and exercising, building stamina and conditioning my body. Sharp color scheme almost looks like the 2010 Cannondale SuperSix model/color. Sure there is no comparison from $1000 road bike and a less then $200 road bike, but let me tell you it stands up to it and performs like a champ. Tweak it if you like with different pedals such as caged pedals or clipless (you will need special cycling shoes), but you will see how much potential this road bike has to come. My only upgrade that I am thinking about is changing the pedals to caged pedals. The yellow and black color with the sleek Vitesse racing seat and Vitesse Lite racing rims, turns heads from other riders that I pass. It is almost like when I pass them they have to speed up and pass me to get another glimpse. I have owned this road bike for 3 weeks now and have put on it over 100 miles and loving it! Overall, this entry level road bike is a diamond in the rough and all it needs is for you to purchase the bike and get out there and ride. Soon you will see what I see and it shines! So come ride like me and do it "Denali Style".

    Really can't be beat for the price

    I drive a isuzu trooper which gets about 9 mpg and i wanted to start biking to school and work instead of burning my money away on gas. So i went to a couple local bike shops in town and found two i liked. my favorite was a hybrid trek bike, but it was $480!! Im a broke college kid with stingy parents, so i was on my own. With this bike, i was thinking with the price, it must be junk.. I was very much mistaken, when i got the bike, i was very pleased. The bike looks good in the pictures, but its even more pretty in person. Im used to riding mountain bikes, so the set up with this road bike is very different. i didnt know that the seat was supposed to be level or HIGHER than the handle bars. for me it was weird at first, but i got used to it pretty quickly. so dont think the bike is too big for you, im 5' 10" and it fits me perfect. After a couple weeks of riding the bike, i took of the GMC stickers so i could put on my own.. bad idea. it looks like they dont completely finish the paint job under the bigger stickers, so i dont recommend it unless you have nicer looking big stickers to cover it. out of the box, it is very easy to assemble. Just attach the seat post, front wheel, and handle bar stem. The only negatives I would have to say is; the seat is kind of hard for long trips, (but what would you expect), a couple of the parts that come reassembled came loose within a couple times of riding (so dont assume whatevers assembled in the box is nice and tight) and- it might have been just mine, but the first time i rode my bike to school (7 miles downhill) when i got to school, walking into my first class i heard a "pssssssshhh" and the tube in my tire released allll my air. luckily theres a bike shop across the street that checked it out and said it was a defective tube, not really the bikes fault but just be aware of that small stuff. the PROs: very smooth shifting up and down hill, I can hit 40 MPH going downhill and still have enough tension on the pedals to go faster, the lowest gears allow very easy climbing for steep uphills, and the best thing- its really sexy! its a really good looking bike, GREAT for the money, and it seems like it will last me a looong time. so if your on a budget and cant afford a 500 dollar road bike, or you just want to give it a try, i really recommend this bike. its very fun, great value for the price, and very efficient.

    Decent for light riding and interested looks.

    As in all things, you get what you pay for and you pay for quality. This bike is fitted with low-pressure Kenda tires, thin inner tubes, poorly-indexed Shimano Revo grip shifters intended for mountain bikes, and finicky derailleur cages. I used it 5 days per week for a 10mi round commute, as well as on weekends for 25+ mi rides for 8 weeks. During that time, I cleaned it every third day, lubed all spinning parts, adjusted derailleurs & brakes as needed and kept my tires right at 85 psi (specs as on sidewall). The left Revo broke some internals after frequent use and rendered the three chainrings useless (left me with just the 38 tooth middle ring), the front derailleur would not stay adjusted despite being well set, the rear brakes were soft at every level of adjustment. Not everything was bad, though. The front brakes were exceptional for the price, using a vertical pull, single pivot cantilever. The frame is incredibly heavy (about 23 lbs without wheels) but is durable and stable while cornering. If you're between 5' 10" and 6' 3" the bike is an excellent fit, the saddle is firm (good for longer rides or faster cadences), the bike accepts a rear rack well, and the knurled pedals are good for tennis shoes. Don't expect to get race-ready with this bike, or to commute quickly every day. But if you'll take it slow, maintain it faithfully, and have reasonable expectations, the bike will turn lots of unknowing heads. A poor buy for me, who got a road bike to train for a triathlon, but a great bike for someone looking for something different and no aspirations to race.
    1st night

    My son bought this bike for me.

    This bike "GMC Denali" is awesome and was practically already assembled.
    Awesome Bike...

    Good bike for the money

    I purchased this bicycle late spring and have put many miles on it. One could spend twice the money and not get what this bicycle has to offer. If there is one downside it is you need to bring bicycle to a bicycle shop for a good tune up. This bicycle is made by Kent which bought out schwinn and it's got the quality of a schwinn.
