Rated 4 out of 5 by Tpizzle Good Bike overall
I just bought this roadbike and it is a bit heavy in my opinion. I have a hybrid bike which weighs around the same, if not lighter. I think part of its heaviness it's because of the spokes on the wheels. This bike's got all the good specs and all. Sora components, 2300 Shifters. If I was going to by this bike for around 600. I would rather buy a trek, specialized or even a diamondback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Copperhead Great bike!
I should start out by saying I paid the full price (699.00), and even at that price it is a great value. The bike is way more than I expected. I've spent more money in the past, on bikes not as good as this one. If you are looking for a great road bike at a good price, this is the one. I should state also that I commute to work daily on it, for a total daily of 17 miles. I usually ride 4 to 5 days out of the week on it. I've logged about
1,000 miles on it so far. Again, an EXCELLENT bike for this price point!!!
One last thing - Make sure you go to a GOOD bike store for setup. I would not recommend some part-time teenager at a large sporting goods store to do a good setup. Also make sure you follow up with a 300-500mile tune up. Cables do stretch A little.
