If you're on a budget and need good items, get the following on Amazon: I did tons of research before purchasing these items. They are the cheapest in their category, but offer the most features.
1) patch kit
2) Continental 42 mm Presta Vale Tubes 700x25c
3) BV Bicycle Strap-On Saddle Bag / Seat Bag Size L (Bag is so large it blow your mind. Fits two tubes, two tools, patch kit, and wallet)
4) Avenir Alloy Water Bicycle Bottle Cage
Assembling the bike was pretty simple for me. Took me about 45min-1hr. It come partially assembled so you just need to install the handle bar,front wheel, seat, pedals, reflectors and tighten all screws. Make sure you buy some grease and have some basic bike allen keys and some bike wrenches. The package does not come with tools. I didnt install with grease but I will be adding it soon.
Shipment was great came in fast and dropped off buy FedEx gotta love prime!! =)
Cons, why the 4 stars?
The shifters are a little strange being in the middle. You would have to change your stance to change your gears, can get kind of annoying. I would look into the Shadow which has the integrated shifters for 40 dollars more. I bought this because of the price, i am student and just needed to get started. I would be upgrading this with when the time is right.
Another issue is that the front brake line connector prevents the front fort from turning more than 15 degrees (aprx) to the left. The right hand side is free to turn all the way. This isnt a problem but it is a nuisance. I would fix this with a dremel and some external hardware and rotate the placement of the brake so its in front of the bar instead of behind. This way it will leave the bar to turn freely. The wheel also was kind of wobbly, not sure if it was my install or it came slightly bent, but it rides fine.
It is a little heavy for a road bike, but for the price you're not going to find anything better. I got it put together by my local bike shop for $80, and it works great. I am 5'3" and got the size small, and while I could do with a slightly smaller bike, it's fine. The one thing I would say is that the thing the handle bars are attached to (I know there's a name for that, but can't remember it) is really long, putting the handlebars much further away from the body of the bike. This makes it a little bit uncomfortable to reach the breaks being the tiny human I am, but not impossible. Again, for the price, you really can't beat it.
It doesn't come with water bottle holders or anything, so be sure to order those as well.
Haven't had a chance to ride it yet (Since the front brake is not usable) so I can't speak to its functionality in that regard yet. But it seems like much higher quality than what the price would suggest (missing bolt not withstanding).
