good beginner to intermediate road bike

This is my first road bike. I'm 5'6" w/inseam of 30" and bought the Medium size (18"/54cm). I just started doing triathlons and it is a good match for my level. After 2 months of research from various websites [...] this is my top choice for a bike under $350 that has all that I need.[...]You can do it yourself w/an Allen wrench and pair of pliers. I did a triathlon w/it the next day and it was a good performing bike. I would suggest in getting the derailleur professionally tuned as mine has some instances to stay between gears. This bike does NOT have paddle shifter. The gear shifter is on top of the handle bars vs. on the brake shifters. This makes it a little inconvience during racing. Add paddle shifter if you plan to race. It is a light bike at 26 lbs. I added a bottle holder for the triathlon. I plan to use it as a commuter & training bike also. Overall I'm happy w/the bike for the performance and price. Especially the price and how sharp it looks compared to all the other intro bikes. There's a thick frame arm (like the $1000s bikes and the forks don't look cheap, plus I like the paint. I'll know more with more miles.

Great price for commute/love of sport!!

This bike is fantastic for the price. My husband and I bought it second hand [...] then we put another $40 in it at the bike shop because the inner wrapping on the metal frame of the tires is extremely cheap and the tires kept popping. We knew this from previous reviews and were expecting it. Some reviewers also say they buy a new seat--I can see that, but it isn't really necessary.After that, we have put nothing into it and plan on purchasing another to ride together. It has given me a love of the sport, and as a beginner I get about 20mph on average--doing better than my friend who paid [$] more for her bike. My husband loves it because it is the perfect commuter bike and gets him to work in about the same time as if he drove. I am 5'7'' and he is 6'' and other reviewers have said 5'5'' and 6'2'' is about the height limit to be comfortable so we can attest to that. I recommend this bike if you are thinking about getting into the sport and need to see what it feels like to go fast on the open road or need to get to work fast with little cost!

Love the UNLIMITED MPG on this thing!!

I just got this bike last week and I already put over 150 miles on it! The only thing I had to replace is the tubes (both went flat before the first 25 miles) But after putting the new tubes everything is great! (Make sure to get the LONG valve stem 700c tube because of how the rim is) This is a great bike for the price and the money I am saving from not having to fill up my gas will pay for the bike in no time!

Great to use it

Great to use it for pleasure or excerise, up and down the street and over bridge. I have mountain bike and now street bike, both are about the same. Keep up healthy. The size of this new bike is perfectly fit me, I m 5'8" tall. Up the road is not what I thought will be easy move up and little hard to push but great for legs.

Good Bike for the price.

[...] had it put together in about an hour. My first ride took me approx. 25 miles round trip which I used to ease myself into riding something other than my mountain bike. I noticed it has a very smooth ride and is pretty light.

Be Prepared to Spend More Money

Did not go half a block before both tires blew. Design flaw with rim wraps that has not been addressed. Research on the internet and you will see that it is a common problem. Like another reviewer, I spent an additional $40 before I could use the bike. [...]
