Commuter Road Bike Got the bike today and it was easy to put together. The component parts (brakes) are cheap but I expect it to be for the price. The frame is worth the $150.00 price tag. So I’m fine with it. The wheels are good like the other post claim. It would be wise to buy better tires because I can tell that the tires are cheap and one rock will pop right through it. So invest in new tires as well ( I bought Vittoria Zaffiro 700x25c tires. Note that it doesn’t come in pairs. So you gotta order two.) Just had to make minor adjustments like tighten the brakes. This bike is use as a secondary bike to lock up at the beach to go to the shops and take to play basketball. I have a cannondale R900 that is expensive and is never going to leave my sight. This is where the commuter bike comes in. So yes I’m happy with what it provides. I also put a rack on it which the screw/nut looks like it blocks the first small gear which I wont ever change to that gear anyways. So if you plan on putting…

Good budget commuter road bike First off, if you’re looking for a commuter road bike, this is an excellent choice. If you’re trying to get into cycling, I highly recommend saving up a little more to get yourself a bike that you won’t outgrow in a matter of two months.

Good Starting Point and First Road Bike This sounds like a good deal, but you’re probably going to invest more time than it’s worth. This might be a good starting point for a competent DIY tinkerer and an inexperienced first time road biker. That’s what I thought it would be for me but it’s just too much work. Everything needs constant adjustment, nothing ever seems to be adjusted correctly, and I’m just not able to spend much time on the bike because I’m always messing with it instead. I would be okay with the tinkering but it also gets a flat every time I go two miles. New tubes don’t help. I feel like a tire upgrade is a must but I’m just not sure I want to keep dumping little upgrades into this bike. You’re probably better off starting with a little better and a little more expensive platform so that you can actually ride it.
