What I like: The balance is good, light as a feather, the padded tape handle bars are wonderful, the gearing is great, the shifters that actually go right to the desired gears are heavenly, the brake calipers do a great job of centering on the tires. I like the quick release front hub with self centering fork depressions. Quick release seat height is a plus. The paint looks durable. The handles hold a end of bar mirror nicely. The bike rides great and I rapidly got used to it's balance.
Before I mention the negatives, I am pleased with the bike, it's a pleasure to ride and would definitely buy it again. I got it for $249 at a big box sporting goods store. What I don't like: I would love to be able to raise the handlebar stem a few inches, and have the frame larger for my size. I immediately replaced the skinny fits in your crack seat, with a wide memory foam one from Bell for my ample rear. I took off the peddle baskets, hate them things, which lost me two peddle reflectors.Read more ›
That one had better front and rear derailleurs and lighter frame; the bike got stolen from my garage and really I hate the &^@&^% who stole it.
I bought this one on June 2013 and I have put about 500 miles on it so far. This bike is the awesomest road bike you can get for $250. I advice you do the following:
1- Immediately change the rim tape, don't ride this bike without doing so otherwise you'll walk back home with a flat tire. I bought the Zefal rim tapes, the were excellent: B0013KH8X8
2- Do your butt a favor and buy a saddle with better padding: I bough the bell memory foam saddle, it's very good but not great Bell Memory Foam Saddle Recline
3- Pedals are the crappiest Pedals I've seen, I got the Forte Campus Pedals from performance bikes store. It's a double sided bike pedal that works with cleated or standard shoes.
4- degrease and regrease the chain, I highly recommend doing so every 70-100 miles since the derailleurs, disk and crankset are cheap and might get chipped.
Non essential stuff I bought. I am listing to confirm that it fits/works with the prelude:
1- Topeak Pocket Rocket Master Blaster Bike Pump, solid yet light pump: ...Read more ›
How is this bike similar to a $700 bike:
Modern components easily upgradeable, serviceable, and standard. The bike stem brakes cassettes, everything except the handle bars that are smaller than 28mm( I think) which means no clip on aero bars. Light weight well constructed frame and wheels. Wheels have no seam like other cheap bikes. It has a seat that is very usable. Smooth reliable shifts. Components ( brake shifters etc.) are very workable. Cage pedals are great!
How is in unlike a $700 road bike.
Shifter separate from brakes. 7 speed instead of 8 speed rear cassette. I could only get the derailleur to work on the lowest six gears. Never really needed the high 28t anyways. The chain rubbed the frame on 14t when i first got it. I just put a washer between the cassette and the frame.( adjustment of the axle might have fixed it). Wheel tape needs to be replaced like others have stated ( it took mine a year to fail). It does not have quick release for back axle. I taped a wrench on the inside of the back frame with electricians tape.(ghetto but hardly noticeable). This bike may take some brain power to assemble and adjust. local bike will do it if you are not a patient person.
If your cannot afford a $600-700 road bike buy this!!! If you cannot afford this bike(I understand how bike stores think $700 is no big deal) then DO NOT buy a road bike. The GMC or victory versions of road bikes are not worth the anger and frustration.
I wish they had more sizes available or a woman's version.
