Giordano Rapido Single Speed Road Bike (12780) The Rapido is all about keeping things simple and getting it done without breaking the bank. At the heart of the Rapido you’ll find a strong hand crafted aluminium frame with horizontal dropouts that can handle the abuse of the big city. City riders told us that they didn’t need derailleurs so we listened and outfitted the Rapido with a flip flop hub so you can run it as a fixed gear or in standard freewheel single speed mode without having to worry about adjustments to temperamental components. The 32 hole alloy wheels roll on loud Kenda 700 x 32 tires that are capable of withstanding less than perfect roads. Front and rear alloy side pull brakes round out this spectacular spec.

OK for the price This bike is decent for the price of $179. If you are deciding between this and Takara Kabuto they are both made by Kent the only differences between the two are frame color, wheel color and the frame material Steel vs Aluminum. If your buying just for looks then it doesn’t matter. If you plan on upgrading components then you should just get the Giordano and save a couple of dollars which can be used for quality parts. The best bang for your buck is actually the Schwinn Men’s Courier Bicycle (green). Too bad its green but overall the components are better.

A head turner I bought this bike for my son to ride to school and back; about 3 miles one way. This is an excellent bike, turns heads wherever it goes. I took it to the local bike shop for some work (more on that later) and all the bike afficiandos were asking where I got the bike from and how much it cost. And they all said that the price I paid for it was an excellent deal.The reason I had to take the bike to the bike shop is that there were some parts missing in the box that is was delivered in (hence the 4 stars and not 5). One of the brake pads were missing for the front tire and the tools were not there either to tighten the steering wheel. Apart from that, excellent bike and good value for the money.

56cm Giordano SS I purchased this bike knowing I would upgrade some components & add some personalization immediately. The bike in stock condition is a bit heavy. Things done: replaced the brakes with anodized green ones, replaced the brake levers with Origin 8 levers and replaced the brake cables with white Jaguar cables. I replaced the seatpost with a white Origin 8 aluminum post and Zebra saddle & anodized green seat clamp. I retaped the handebars with lime green cork and replaced the chain with a lime green chain. The biggest change and weight saver is I have mounted my Spinergy Rev X carbon fiber rear wheel & Zipp Tangente tire. I also removed all decals. The rest of the parts will be upgraded as they are used up. Thanks for reading and get out and ride. I have included a few pics so you can get the idea… Thanks
