great bike for my purposes
Pros: Sturdy, Stable, Good components
Cons: Gear shifting cranky
Best Uses: Roadracecommute
i bought this as i recently got into road biking and triathlons but didn’t want to spend too much. great value for money and i got it on a sale for nearly $200 off. i like the sturdy frame which means i can use it for non-training purposes also such as local commuting. i like the size and weight but the gear shifting can sometimes be cranky (see Lexa’s comment above). overall, i love this bike and I do want to ride it all the time.
