I bought this bike over two years ago and it has changed the way I look at fitness and the beautiful area that I live in. Thank you Giordano and Amazon for making that experience possible when my LBS is certainly not willing to do that for this poor public school teacher.
A couple of tips:
1. Take the bike into your LBS to have it tuned and initially prepped for your first ride. They will look at you like you just brought a dead puppy into their store - but F*&% them because the LBS is a hinderance to you starting in cycling when it should be a boost. So just hold your head high and pay for a good tuning. Chances are the kids in the back that actually do the work will admire you for finding an affordable bike that looks this good.
2. The next upgrade I undertook was clipless pedals. If you look somewhere like Nashbar or the Clymb you can find a set of clipless pedals shoes for less than a hundred bucks. Again, have the LBS install them, because they'll have the right tools to get the old pedals off. This upgrade will help you haul this thing up those tough hills and help you maintain speed on the flats.
3. Next priority has to be the saddle. I haven't done this yet because it's hard to stomach paying about half the cost of the bike just for the bit you sit on - but I'm beginning to understand how a comfy seat helps.
The bottom line is this bike is perfect for someone who wants the thrill of flying down hills at 35 mph, the challenge of conquering those same hills on the way up and the satisfaction of getting a great workout - but who doesn't want to spend as much on a bike as they did on their first car. I've been riding this bike regularly for 2 years and I've been very happy with it. And to the snobs that pass you on their 12 ounce, carbon frame, 52 gear bikes - just smile knowing your heart is getting the same workout for a tiny fraction of the cost!
For the chain rings it seems like the shifter is designed for 3 chain rings even though this only has 2. When I am on the small ring my 2 heaviest cogs cause the chain to rub the guard bad. But if I shift one time on the chain ring it stays in the small ring but all rubbing on the heavy cogs is gone (but now the lightest 2 cogs will rub). When I shift a 2nd time it goes into the large chain ring fine. As I am fairly heavy and out of shape I haven't spent much time in the large chain ring yet, definitely never near the heavy cogs of it, so I can't comment on if that has the same issue. I have checked many sources to confirm that I have it set up right to avoid the rubbing, but the chain guard thing (can't remember the actual name of the guide/guard thing near the chain ring) is just too narrow and if I set it up to not rub on one side it rubs on 2 gears at the other side or one at each end. The box was really beaten up on delivery too so I have considered that a possible cause as well.
All of this having been said, its a beautiful bike and it works fine as long as I treat it like 3 chain rings even though its only 2. My only buyer's remorse is that it is only 8x2 gears. Down the road once I get into better shape and can use most of the gears, I would really like to get an 11x2.
Last note: Make sure to keep an eye on prices if you are planning to buy this and are not in a rush. I have seen this bike (medium) bounce from $375-$450 and back a couple times since I bought mine less than 4 months ago. Usually sitting around $425 though.
Out of the box, had to adjust breaks and make a couple tweaks - nothing you wouldn't expect from assembling your own bike.
I ordered the larger frame due to my height (6'1"). The bike felt a bit larger at first, but I have since gotten used to it. Being, I was in the middle of the two frames, I still think I made the correct decision. I did swap out the seat and lower the handlebars a bit to get to my idea riding position.
I mostly use the bike to go to and from work, which has been fine. I've also ridden a couple 40 or 50 mile rides. It's been a fine commuter bike, tires have held up fine (but will need to be replaced for sure before next year's ridding season - maybe end of this year).
Weight wise, it's not the lightest thing I've ridden, but I'm okay with that as it's not like I'm out racing the bike.
Overall, I feel it was work the price for what I was looking for.

I've ridden this bike almost every day in that time period. 10's of thousands of miles on it. Primary means of transportation.Read more
