You really can't complain about the bike, the price is simply unbeatable. I took all of the unnecessary stickers off and it gives the bike a little more expensive appearance. And with the low price, you can really make it your own by getting some of your own add ons. I bought some bull horn handlebars and bright green bar tape from Amazon to match the pedals and it looks great! I get a lot of compliments on this bike, especially because of the deep-v rims. It shifts smoothly, brakes are great (brakes had to be adjusted because they squealed when I first got it but who expects Walmart employees to assemble a perfect bike?).
The tires on this bike aren't really what one would consider true toad tires. They're slightly wider and have some nice tread on them which is great for my commute. There are some rough sections along the way and these tires handle them perfectly, while traditional road tires are known to not hold up very well in rough city traveling. I use this 5 days a week for commuting to school (about 3 miles round trip) and on the weekends for longer rides. I've put a few hundred miles on this bike so far and everything is holding up perfectly.
The only complaint I could possibly come up with for this bike is it's super heavy(25-30lb). But if you're interested in getting something much lighter than this you're definitely going to have to shell out the big bucks for it.
I like the look as well as the price.
I have had it for about a week and have put over 50 miles on it all ready.
The seat is firm (how it should be).
I am 6'0" and the geometry of the bike feels right.
They should not have painted the rim where the break pads touch, makes the brakes very loud.
Minor adjustments for front derailleur had to be made but I expected that.
The bike does weigh a bit under 30 lbs., but doesn't really affect[?] anything.
I do not like the pedals but that's just personal preference.
For the price of the bike you can't go wrong. Bottom line: Buy it.
I love this bike! I rode it for about a week and one day I was pedaling up a hill and I was in 3rd gear and the rear sprocket broke under the stress of power applied while pedaling up a hill. I took it back and the Walmart associates kindly and quickly exchanged mine for another one just like it in the store. TWO DAYS LATER same thing happened again! I reluctantly returned it for the cash. Other than that this bike was the best. Hope the manufacturer's fix the problem.
Have used this bike only a few times but enough to say that this bike is really good, looks expensive and I'm really happy with the price, even now that this bike is $50 bucks cheaper than when I bought... But I'm still happy with my price $179 its easy to assemble, was my first time assembleding a bike and took like less than 40 minutes... My only problem with this bike was with the ''Quick release seat clamp'' was not ''easy'' to install, my thougts is that little thing is ti small so I decide to buy another one, that just cost $5 dollars... So I solve the ''problem''.
OVERALL I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS BIKE
I'm 6'1, 200 lbs. and I'm lucky I didn't get the 25" version of this bike. It would have been too tall. This bike is perfect for 5'10" to 6'3" riders.
Pros: Lightweight, durable, rides smoothly, looks great.
Cons: Tuning out-of-the-box is horrible (needs to be taken to a bike shop, unless you know how to do it) and the seat needs to be upgraded, it is too stiff for my bottom.
I've looked at over 10 road bikes and this is by far the best in the sub $200 category.
I'm 5'3". This bike is definitely on the tall side for me ,but with the seat all the way down I can ride it very comfortably. I took it out for an 18 mile ride yesterday and it was great. I'm using this as a starter bike, as I am doing my first longer race soon (62 miles). You will absolutely have to adjust the gears on this. The front gears were particularly difficult to adjust, 3rd gear wouldn't work at all. With many adjustments and tuning the bike works perfectly. If you don't know what you're doing, you're going to need to take the bike to someone before you ride it. The bike is amazingly comfortable to ride. The gears (once they're tuned up) are smooth. The grips on the handlebars are nice. The seat is fantastic - my butt didnt hurt at all. For the price and value you get out of this bike, this is a must-have purchase. Good luck!
This bike is lightweight aluminum (27 lb) and has a beautiful paint job. I have ridden it twice and it is mechanically perfect.
I bought this bike because I wanted an hybrid bike at a cheap price. I'm a 5'55 female, so it's too tall for me but it is still rideable. I can put my foot on the ground when stopped/seated at stoplights but when I get off my seat I can't even put my two feet on the ground. The middle bar is so high. One of the tallest bike I've seen, even too big for my father. But still, for the use and cheap price and the look, it's still good. The brakes make noises like some other reviews say. My brake pads are completely used and I just rode 100 miles. I bought new pads and I'll change them. The bike is pretty heavy, but it's normal considering it's not a real road bike. The tires/valves are schrader, not presta. I also went to my local bike shop to get the shifting ajusted. The guy tried for 30 minutes and it's still not perfect. He's a pro but still found it hard to adjust it because it's cheaply made.
With all those complaints, the bike is good enough for me!
Please to note that even though it says 22.5,do not think it is not for an adult less than 5'10" in height. It is a tall bike. It's a shame it was not available to try and purchase at the store. It was delivered by FedEx damaged due to the way it packaged and handled. The front brakes had broken tension adjustment screws and missing tension springs. In other words ,the front brakes could not be adjusted. This was due to the fact the tension screws are mounted in plastic; not aluminum like my other bikes in the same price range. I've tried to reach Genesis customer service but as of yet ; no luck. It needs a front brake assembly before the bike can be used. I could purchase a replacement assembly online but I don't think I should. If service does not comply ; I will return bike to Walmart.
Really great bike for the price. But we had to bring it to a bike shop to get it assembled.
Double check if your height is appropriate for this bike. For a 5'9'' tall person, the seat is at the minimum level.
This bike is awesome. This bike is perfect for the hills in San Francisco. I road it for 6hrs and no problem. There's lots of road hills where I go and this bike can do the job. It better for that much money. I weigh 290 pounds, and im 5"9 hight my waist is 42 my length of pants is 30 and this is perfect specialy the tires. They are not thin, these tires are the next step from being thin so it supports my weight. It took exacly 1hr to put together, its worth the patience and money. This is pretty tall and it can go taller.
Just to let you know the breaks are so loud it's embarrassing specially with an eye catchy bike.. Wow you see heads turn when you roll by. This literally looks like a $400 bike, Walmart so far so good, if I would have gotten the 25" model I know for a fact it would be to to big.
Bottom bracket bearing failed after 100 mi. Will be asking for warranty repair...we'll see.
I went to my local walmart to get the bike put together when i received it, because it had a tag that said "Free Assembly", but i was told they didn't assemble bikes anymore. So, i had a little trouble putting it together at first, but everything worked out in the end. I absolutely love this bike, it is very comfortable to ride and looks very nice. Definitely worth the money i spent on it!
I brought the bike a couple of weeks ago and finally I had to send it out to one of my uncles who lives in Delaware because Walmart could not ship it to Puerto Rico, and then he shipped it to me. I love in the bike got it on thursday and set up up on friday and used it on 5/18/13 saturday and I love it nice bike to ride really nice colors I am 5'10 and weight 215 and the bike is perfect for me. The bike came with a couple of scratches but they are small hardly noticed. I got the bick for 179.99 and ask for Walmart if they could give me the rollback price that was 129 and they did great customer service. Today I used it for 22 miles and it was a pretty nice ride. When you recieved it you hace to do some adjustments on the transmission. But for the price and the quality of the bike its a A plus for me. I will be enjoying the ride with the bike!
I wanted a light road bike for moderate use without having to go to a bike shop and spend thousands of dollars on one and this bike fits the bill perfect. Thanks Walmart.
I ordered site to store, shipping was very fast. Upon pickup I noticed a hole in the otherwise intact box, by the rear wheel. Took it home and much to my regret found that the rear derailleur was badly bent. Packed it again and returned to the store. I am trying to locate this bike in some store, but there is none around. My overall rating is one star due to the shipping, the value seems 5 stars (if you get a working/undamaged one). Thanks Walmart for your return policy.
Cant complain I paid $140 for the bike with tax. The only complaint I have about the bike is what I've read before in reviews; since the rims are painted, the brake pads make insanely annoying noise to the point where you don't even want to break lol I'm going to buy new pads, softer ones, maybe that will work. Otherwise the bike works, no problems so far.
I love this bike its a aluminum bike and has really nice gears and overall great for the price . I got it for $140 after taxes and free shipping. I couldn't put it together myself so I paid $20 to a bike shop .
Overall I spent $160 in total for this bike and its worth it.
I love riding it ! Summer time is coming so its so good. I would only recommend it to people 5'10 and up because I'm 5'10 and I ride it on the lowest setting :D. I am 18 I shouldn't have problems with the seat because I had the same seat on my GMC road bike but now I got a bigger button so it hurts a little . But I think you should at least use it for a couple of says until deciding to change the seats. I love the look but I wish it came in different colors , the white paint has spots here and there . I will probably take it out in a few months and and spray paint it something darker.
Great bike ! I would recommend getting a good lock for this baby because it sure is a looker ;)
I love the bike but the brake squeal and make such a high pitch noise that all my neighbor came out of their house to see what all the noise was all about. The rims are painted but I don't know if that is the cause of the noise. Does anyone know how to fix the problem?
Brakes squeal like a howler monkey.
