Not a bad bike for the money. Impressive!!! First off, I must say that I am very new to the road bike thing. I wanted to get my feet wet to prepare for the Hotter Than Hell in Wichita Falls Texas in 2014. So I took the plunge on this entry level ride. Central Texas is unforgiving, road wise. What we lack in natural terrain features we more than make up for in road debris and crappy roadways. With that out there, I hope that this posting serves as a decent review for would be buyers.While the internet is a valuable resource, researching this bike is fruitless.

This bike fits the bill, this is a good looking bike with Shimano parts and although it is not as light as a Trek or Specialized still it is light. Let’s face it I’m not ready for the tour yet so 2 lbs more is not that big of a deal to me. I’ve logged about 50 miles so far and am enjoying it. I plan to change the seat, it is not great at all. The advice I would give is take it to a bike shop to be assembled or tuned up at your local bike shop before you go on any significant ride. When I received my bike the rear wheel was not straight, the…
