This bike is hella sick for the price
Superior quality to similar bikes, but oddly cheaper. Replace pedals ASAP
Great bike for commutes. The 3 speeds will seriously get you anywhere with how light the bike is. Makes those downhill rides do-able and the uphill battle possible! Awesome beginning bike for those wanting to get into cycling for the summer.
Really good quality for the price. Would definitely recommend to anyone who asked.
I was terrified that this bike was going to be to good to be true. After finding this bike I did a good amount of research on it before deciding to purchase. The limited number of reviews I could find were all good, so I decided to take the leap and to purchase the bike.
Upon arrival the bike was very well protected, and easy enough to assemble. Being my first road bike I did have to get a different pump to accommodate the presta valve on the tyre, but that’s wasn’t a big deal. As standard all of the brakes needed adjusting right out of the box, but that was incredibly simple. I took it out for a brisk ride later that day and discovered that the seat was horrendously uncomfortable, I couldn’t even ride it three miles. But once again this is expected, especially on bikes in this price range.
I have now had the opportunity to ride this a decent bit, and I’m incredibly impressed with the bikes performance. The light weight and slim tyres make it so easy to maneuver, and it’s incredibly comfortable to ride for extended periods of time. I use this bike strictly for exercise, and it is everything I was hoping for. So simple to use, and smooth riding. I was a little skeptical of just having three speeds, but I didn’t want to get to complex so I gave it a shot. All three speeds offer just enough of a difference to make this perfect for flat surfaces, going up hills, or bombing down hills, all the while keeping everything simple and streamlined. The shifting is also incredibly smooth. I have never seen an internally geared bike until this one, but I’m sold on the concept after having used this bike. This bike gives you the simplicity of a fixed gear bike, while giving you the practical benifits of having multiple gears, literally the best of both worlds! The bike does all of this while also being incrediblely stylish (not a must have for me, but it’s a nice plus).
This isn’t a $1,500 road bike, but it is an awesome value for someone that isn’t sure if they are...
