A hybrid bike for men under 500 is a bicycle that combines elements of both road and mountain bikes to create a versatile and durable bike that can be ridden on a variety of terrain. Hybrid bikes typically have wider tires than road bikes, making them more comfortable and stable on rough roads or trails, and they also have a more upright riding position, making them easier to control.
The epitome of timeless style and modern comfort, this is a hybrid cruiser made for adventure. Our innovative step-thru design gives you serious comfort, while the built-in accessory attachment points make customizing a snap (literally).
Redesigned from the frame up, this bike is ready for EVRYjourney.
My husband and I started our full time RV living/working remotely journey 9 months ago and travel to new locations every 4-6 weeks. I knew I wanted a bike to enjoy in the RV parks and for our exploring adventures that allow biking.
I had a nice hybrid bike that I had to sell because I developed carpal tunnel and the pressure on my hands leaning down to the handlebars made biking very uncomfortable. I’m also a plus size woman so I took all of this into consideration when researching the right bike for me.
I found the EVRYjourney, and it met all my requirements, and it did not disappoint. I LOVE this bike. The cruiser style fits me well, especially the handlebars, and it was easy to assemble and adjust so that I ride comfortably.
The seat is even comfortable, and I’ve never had a bike before where I didn’t immediately order a new seat. I added the lift off basket and rear rack bag to have plenty of storage for biking essentials and purchases.
We recently biked the 8. 2 miles around Mackinac Island and my EVRYjourney made the ride so easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend this bike if you are looking for comfort, style and great quality.
I live in a very humid, tropical environment where sulfur emissions from a prior lava eruption continue to pollute the air and cause everything metal to rust. After our 1960’s Schwinn cruiser bicycles became rusted beyond repair, I searched online for new bikes.
The sixthreezero bicycles looked really cool and the prices were fantastic. I did not expect the quality to be anywhere near as good as it is! It is extremely comfortable and a breeze to pedal also! The paint color is very retro and cool; people compliment the bike whenever I ride Amazingly, TWO years after I have purchased it, my bike has NO rust anywhere! This is practically unheard of in our location! We live 5 blocks from 3-month long active lava eruption that continues to emit sulfur into the air three years later! If I had to say something negative about the bike, I can’t think of anything I would change about it! Their customer service team is top notch! Anytime I email them, they respond almost immediately! I would recommend this bicycle for men and women of all ages.
I am 61yrs old and our teenage neighbor loves my bike as much as I do!.
I researched many bikes and manufacturers before settling on Sixthreezero. My research paid off as this bike is well made, easy to handle and transport and a joy to ride. The bike arrived well packaged by Sixtrhreezero to prevent damage in transit.
The only assembly required was the handlebars, seat and pedals. The instructions were super simple for a novice bike rider. Everything is solid and well made. The paint job is beautiful and stands up well to riding.
I have had my bike for almost a year. The handle bars and seat were simple to adjust. Anyone with either lower back pain or knee pain would find this bike easy to use. I have both and I bought this bike as it was advertised to be easy on both issues.
I was not disappointed. I ride for about an hour at a time and I am not sore or in pain afterwards. There is no leaning over on the handlebars. You can sit up straight. The seat is wide, plush and comfortable.
It provides the needed stability for occasional bikers. There are reflectors in both front and rear and on the pedals. Itnis easy to add lights in back and front for night riding. The rear rack is super useful for carrying those needs items for beach or park.
My family loves this bike! Dismounting is easy too as the front bar is curved down allowing for step in mounting and dismounting. A big favorite for my husband. I would and have recommended this bike and this company to friends and family as the bike is well buolt ans the company super responsive to inquiries.

Redesigned from the frame up, this bike is ready for EVRYjourney.
A few years ago, though living in suburban America, I gave up a car for a bicycle (and occasional rideshares for business). A lifestyle-choice experiment that lasts to this day. All the while, the old-school, pre-owned 10-speed bicycle I owned was a nearly 20-year old already pre-owned purchase.
Recently, it was time for me to let go of Ol’ Faithful, and so I began a journey. At first I made the mistake of chasing after deals per well-known name brands. 1st bike purchase from a department store, a disappointment, so I returned it.
2nd bike, from another department store, such a let down with defects, also returned. At some point, I left behind my local department stores and various online department store searches. I took my goal more seriously! Then I discovered a few *authentic* bike shops with online stores.
Early on, sixthreezero stood out above the rest for it’s straightforward messaging and ease-of-use website. So, then I found a good value-for-price option for me to buy direct from their online store, the sixthreezero EVRYjourney Men’s Casual Edition 26″ 7-Speed Sport Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle, Matte Black.
Once, I researched the online resources sixthreezero provides and the history and philosophy of the brand, I decided to also purchase their Forever Warranty. Considering that the shipping cost was free, the total purchase price was an amazing value.
As a work-from-home veteran, I’m also a technophile and online-buyer/home-delivery enthusiast. So, I could have a lot to be critical about anything going wrong with the purchase process, the shipping and handling, and/or the product quality or support.
Turns out that I have nothing but GREAT VIBES and GOOD THINGS TO SAY about this product! Despite the current 2020 economy downturn, the delivery of my new purchase was predictable and well-tracked and reported with updates along the way, and then complete within about one week as promised.
Their bike-in-a-box complete solution leaving me to complete the assembly was as simple as I could imagine. You’ve just got to go the website and watch an unboxing/how-to assembly video for the model bicycle in which you’re interested.
You’ll get it. For my own interest, I also downloaded and consulted the PDF complete assembly manual. As assembly proceeded, I was impressed and gratified with the feel of the quality and craftsmanship of the parts, materials, and frame of the bike.
There were a few very minor discrepancies between the video walkthrough and the tools and parts that arrived in the box, but nothing that my brain couldn’t sort out and realize that I for sure actually had absolutely everything as promised.
(I think the version, model of my bicycle seemed like a new listing on the online store; so I allowed for these minor incongruities without thinking much of it. ) After dealing with the lesser quality and mishaps of assembly with the previously store-bought bikes, I really came to appreciate the “legit bike shop with an online store” approach of sixthreezero.
As well, after having dealt with the department store staff who would assemble the on-floor bikes, I came to realize that having the uber-experienced legit bicycle experts at sixthreezero assemble my bike to the out-of-the-box 80%-assembled extent really makes a difference! After putting in my own time to assemble the bike the rest of the way, I was actually grateful for the relatively minor amount of assembly required and the video companionship to walk me through it.
(And, I am the sort to hire a handyman to do anything hands-on!) For the first time ever in my life, I have a sense of accomplishment and know-how and ownership of my bike like I’ve never had before.
Last, not least, riding my new sixthreezero EVRYjourney Men’s Casual Edition 26″ 7-Speed Sport Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle is bliss. First of all, the model of the bike is perfect for me. (Be sure to leverage the Choosing a Bike section under the Bike Advice tab at their website! For example, I certainly used the Bodyfit Explained post with their FREE BODY FIT QUESTIONNAIRE.
) After having bought and test-ridden and returned a couple of other bikes, ultimately riding my new EVRYjourney Casual Cruiser feels solid, easy-going to handle, and like I now have the right bike for the best value! A smooth, solid, trustworthy ride.
After owning an expensive 21-speed Schwinn, which gears locked up several times, i really wanted a simple 3-speed. The box was extremely damaged; staples were missing, the remaining two were hanging loose; large v-shape rip in cardboard, two holes punched through, including at the gear hub, which plastic protector was discolored (and had fallen off) from hard banging in transit.
Bike, unlike Sixthreezero assembly vid, was even difficult to remove from box, given tight packing and contents banged around. Acquaintances advised me to return it. The simplicity of 3-speed, however, is the reason I kept pushing to get the bike functional.
Assembly is not “easy”, as per description. i could assemble quite a bit but centering the front wheel with adjusting the brake pads, brake handle and cable required a professional (with fee). He also tweaked several spokes; he was not impressed with the bike.
It arrived July 5; Tuesday, July 19, finally got it ready to go. The shimano gear was very smooth at first, then a couple clackety-clacks; but, objectively, I might’ve switched gears too fast or they may be very sensitive.
Given the state of shipping box and banging at the gear hub I’m concerned about gear longevity. We have a few more days to try it out before the deadline to return. The matte black finish shows all hand- and fingerprints.
Front brakes still unevenly grab the rim. Seems like the value doesn’t match the price. I paid $806. 47 tax $9. 99 shipping; then clicked on my still-open bicycle page and found it had refreshed to a price of $479.
99 (40% reduction) and out of stock. Sheesh; what a frustrating experience.
GOT TWO EVRY JOURNEY ELECTRIC BIKES, ONE FOR ME AND ONE FOR MY WIFE, TO REPLACE OUR 20 YEAR OLD COMFORT BIKES. WE LIKED THE LOW BAR AND THE SEAT IS VERY COMFY. I ASSEMBLED THEM MY SELF AND IT WAS NOT VERY COMPLICATED WITH THE GOOD ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS.
BATTERY IS LIFE IS PRETTY GOOD ALTHOUGH THE BATTERY ON THE ONE MY WIFE RIDES LASTS LONGER THAN MINE. MAYBE BECUASE SHE IS LIGHTER THAN ME. MY BROTHER WAS VISITING AND WE WENT FOR A RIDE. HE LIKED THEM BUT NOTICED THE SHIFTING TO A DIFFERENT GEAR WASN’T WORKING PROPERLY AND WITH A LITTLE ADJUSTING IT WORKS PROPERLY.
GLAD HE WAS VISITING. OVERALL FUN TO RIDE, SPEED ASSIST IS ENJOYABLE AND FEATURES WORK WELL.
Outfitted with an aluminum city frame, an Schwinn suspension fork to absorb shock, and a padded saddle with a suspension seat post, the Schwinn Discovery men’s comfort bike is ideal for commuting to work or cruising down a leisurely bike path.
The bike offers such additional features as 21-speed SRAM grip shifters for fast, easy gear changes, a Shimano TX-31 rear derailleur, an Schwinn alloy crank, Promax alloy linear pull brakes, a swept-back upright handlebar with an adjustable stem, fenders, and a rear gear carrier.
It’s the third time I’m buying this same model. First one was stolen, second one was gifted to a friend. Each time I did a research on what is the best value. This bike can not be beat for it’s price.
This is not a premium quality, and you can expect things to start rattling here and there after a year of daily use. Wheels are probably the weakest part, and you might need to replace them after a year or two of daily rides.
Overall this is an amazing, versatile everyday bicycle.
I gave them 5 stars their service was good. my bike arrived in perfect condition and very easy to assemble. I recommend this product is very elegant and comfortable to handle if it is worth it to register and get my guarantee I hope it is easy, thank you for your good service.
I have only had 10-speed road bikes prior to getting this hybrid about a week ago. I am just getting back into biking and this is the perfect bike for me. It is more comfortable than a road bike (if you get an additional Schwinn gel seat cover) and takes bumps and railroad crossings much better than a standard road bike.
The crossbar is lower than most road bikes which means less possibility for injury. The tires and 21 speed gearing make it a better option than a mountain or off-road bike. This is an excellent compromise for someone looking to enjoy extended bike path or other hard surface trips.
There are other brands that offer higher end components but you will have to buy from a dealer and pay much more. I had this delivered to my door at no extra charge. I put it together and made the necessary adjustments in about an hour.
I’m still trying to get the handlebars tuned in. I am also having issues with 3rd and 4th gear skipping under strain but I can live with it.
Microshift 21-speed twist shifters w/Shimano rear derailleur. Alloy V-brakes deliver sure stopping power. Alloy double wall rims offer lightweight durability. 700c wheel size fits riders 5 ft. 4 in. to 6 ft.
2 in. \. Assembly required. Choosing the right bike can be tough. Road bikes are great for speed and fitness, but they can’t handle even the smallest patch of gravel. Cruiser bikes are fun and casual, but they aren’t designed for long and strenuous rides.
Mountain bikes can handle gnarly trails but aren’t fast enough to take to work. Sounds like you need a hybrid, the perfect combination of road bike speed, cruiser comfort and mountain bike versatility.
The 700c Women’s Schwinn GTX 1 has all of that and more, a true multi-sport hybrid.
It was my starter to get into cycling. I loved it at first, shaved about an inch off the bars, rotated and added drops + comfort grips, schwalbe touring tires, and replaced the crap shifters on it. Did everything I wanted on it and started planning bikepacking trips.
Then a very noticeable clunk started happening in the pedals. I bought this before reading reviews (my mistake) and learned that this seems to be a common problem with this bike, being the stock crankshaft eventually goes to crap.
After about 500 or so miles of riding and isolating the trouble and attempts to repair it (requires new assembly) I decided to upgrade and keep this as my dog walker bike. I regret this purchase (got it on sale for 399 during early 2021) and the upgrades I’ve sunk into it.
Upgraded to a Specialized Diverge E5 since then and the experience is like night and day. If it wasn’t for the inevitably faulty part I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple hybrid made in China.
let’s preface all of this with the fact that i ride this bike five days a week about 15 miles a day for my commute to work, no matter the conditions. the good first: bike is comfortable, bike looks good, is a nice versatile machine.
put a rear rack and lights on it and it’s a pretty nice city commuter, grocery getter, etc. the bad: the bottom bracket on this bicycle is complete garbage. if you don’t know what the bottom bracket is and how to service it, OR don’t want to really ever work on the bicycle, BUYER BEWARE.
it is a very bad and simple design and busted after a few weeks of use. this causes the crank arms to wobble in all directions and will make the chain jump off the front sprockets under heavy pedaling.
i have taken it apart not once, but three times, to replace bearings and make adjustments to the bottom bracket. the first time i opened it up the bearings were all over the place and were not intact whatsoever.
the tools needed to take the unit apart cost about $60 alone. i’ve been struggling to make it work properly for over a year. i recently bit the bullet and spent another $30 on a SEALED BEARING BOTTOM BRACKET and took the whole thing apart again to fix it.
THAT BEING SAID. If you know how to work on a bicycle and don’t mind it, not too bad for the price. I’ve used mine almost daily for over a year and a half, and even though it’s a headache for me almost weekly, it gets the job done.
Also FYI for buyers, Dick’s is very little help for service assistance, so I’ll save you the phone calls if you decide to buy a replacement bottom bracket. Shimano UN300 68 mm x 127. 5 mm. Good luck.
I bought this bike a few days ago and have gone for 1 bike ride on it. When the associate at Dicks did the safety inspection on it he told me that the chain was rubbing on a metal piece when on the biggest and smallest gears in the front and to keep it in the middle one to avoid the rubbing.
That should have been a red flag, but purchased it anyway. Went for my first bike ride the next day to find out that the front gears don’t just rub. the chain won’t even move the the biggest or smallest gear.
I am stuck with only being able to use 7 out of the 21 possible combinations. I am going to take to a local bike service shop to see if they can correct the issue as I do not believe that Dicks will be helpful since they knowingly sold me the bike in this condition.
Aside for the issue with the gears, it seems to be an OK bike. Just wish I could have gotten more resistance on my ride.
The comfort and ease of the sixthreezero Around the Block make it a perfect choice for a casual jaunt of twenty miles or less, whether that’s to the beach, down the bike path, around the city, or just around the block.
The sixthreezero Around the Block’s simple, straightforward design makes casual rides effortless. Riding, maintenance and storage have never been so uncomplicated. An 18-Inch Matte Black steel cruiser frame provides plenty of style for riders 5 feet to 6 feet, 2 inches Tall.
The coaster braking system is simple, just pedal backwards to glide to a stop. Blacked out components, 26-inch aluminum wheels with 2. 125-Inch wide white wall tires and gloss black rims make for a sleek cruising statement.
Both the seat and the handlebars can be adjusted for height and tilt for maximum comfort. Other features include wide cruiser bike handlebars with high-density foam grips, waffle tread tires, rear rack, a Guard to protect pant cuffs from getting caught in the chain, double walled rims for a smooth ride, and a 300 pound maximum weight capacity.
It comes 85 percent assembled. Designed with comfort, ease, and eye-catching style, sixthreezero bikes offer affordable quality for a vast range of riders.
I was looking to buy 2 bikes (one for myself and one for my husband) for our anniversary. After a lot of research I chose the sixthreezero Around the Block Women’s beach cruiser bike in Mint Green for my bike.
I am 5’5 and find this the perfect size for me. I also experience pelvic pain and this bike allows you to sit upright rather than lean forward like with other bikes. The seat is wide, so it is much more comfortable than most other bikes.
I also like that the handles and seat are black so they do not get dirty like other bikes that have white. The bike was fairly easy to put together – I had never built one before and put it together myself.
I searched youtube for a video and had it together in no time. I took it for a ride but noticed that the rear brake was screeching a lot. I looked up how to adjust the brakes on youtube and tried to make adjustments, but then realized that the incorrect washer was placed on one of the brake pads (see attached photos, the left was correct and the right was wrong).
I contacted sixthreezero customer care and had a good experience with that. I was able to take my bike to a local bike shop and they reimbursed me for the cost the bike shop charged me to brake pads.
I communicated over email with sixthreezero customer care who was very responsive. When I received my bike back from the shop, I realized that they had adjusted my seat, I guess so that they could test out my bike.
My seat was then squeaking, but my husband tightened the bolts, and the squeaking went away! If you have any issues with this bike, I suggest looking on youtube for fixes, the bike most likely just needs to be adjusted, or to contact their customer care, who are excellent.
If you are looking for a comfortable, good quality, nice looking bike, I think you will be happy with this one.
I want to love my bike, and I want to love the company I bought it from, but both fall short. This was one of two bikes I purchased for my daughter and me during the pandemic. Hers was more difficult to assemble (not a sixthreezero bike), but easier to ride.
Mine (the sixthreezero bike) was easier to assemble, but not ready to ride. I may be naive, but at this price point I would not have expected to have problems with braking or the chain falling off. Our maiden voyage was a catastrophe.
The bike is beautiful and mostly comfortable (the design of the handlebars are a little difficult for those with arthritis in their wrists), but I know nothing of bike maintenance and was ill-prepared for having to perform it straight out of the box.
Thank goodness for modern phones and how-to videos (and semi-patient neighbors who tried their best to help). Nearly two years later and it’s still not calibrated correctly which I assume will have to wait until I have some means of transporting it to a professional bike repair shop.
Not what I would have expected, but this was the first (and only) time I’ve ever purchased bikes online, so perhaps I should have been better prepared. I got pulled into this purchase by the fancy marketing.
If I had it to do over again, I would have bought a second, less expensive bike like the one I got for my daughter (Snow Shop Everything New Lusso Classic Cruiser Bike Frame, Women’s). We ordered our bikes at the same time.
Hers arrived quicker and is still riding without any issue nearly two years later. As far as the company, when the bike was delivered, the fancy marketing offered a free bell. I followed the instructions, but never received the bell.
I might add that the only reason I am writing this review is because the company has now emailed me twice, asking me to review their product. I did review it on Amazon after I first purchased it. When they emailed me the first time asking for a review, I shared my experience above and that I didn’t not receive the promised bell.
Now that they’ve emailed me again, promising me rebates for a review, I’m going to air my grievances here. sixthreezero hasn’t responded to any of my emails, but I’ll respond to theirs!.
I decided to splurge and finally get myself a bike so I could get fit during the pandemic. I’d been eyeing these bikes for awhile, because I am out of shape and overweight, I wanted a comfortable bike that I could mount easily.
So I ordered a bicycle for myself and my son. Of course, unfortunately it took quite some time to get the bicycle because of the shortages. However, sixthreezero did right by me by offering a partial refund for the delays.
I assembled my son’s bicycle, which was a bit of a learning curve for me. I recommend reading the instructions AND watching their video. I also screwed up the brakes during assembly but I found some general brake videos and resolved that myself.
It wasn’t too bad. Unfortunately my bike was the one severely delayed and didn’t arrive until the cold weather had set in and after my baby was born. So I opted to take it to a bike shop for assembly, and being brave I decided to bicycle home.
The bicycle shop is about 5 miles from my house. It was tough for me, not having rode a bike in almost 20 years, but I made it! The bike was pretty darned comfortable and easy to ride. I thought I’d be sore the next day, and I wasn’t.
I haven’t had much chance to ride because of my toddler (whom I will soon buy a helmet for and attach the child seat), but the couple occasions I have have been a real pleasure. Just wish there wasn’t such a shocking lack of bicycle racks in the plaza near my house! I also received many compliments on the beauty of the bike.

Ever since i’ve owned this bike I get constant positive feedback from everyone I come into contact with. Just recently I took it to a bike shop to have a rack mounted on the back and even avid riders remarked on how nice the bike looks.

I purchased this bike brand new from someone on FB market. It was NEW, assembled at REI bike techs. I have spent copious amounts of money trying to fix this bike. It just has so many issues, mostly due to how it’s made.
The gears are cheaply made and it causes the chain to slip because the gears aren’t accommodating the chain mechanism. I’ve taken this bike to several bike shops to have it fixed and they are unable to fix it without completely redoing and installing new gears, and chain, and chain mechanism.
It’s honestly a waste of money. You’re better off investing a few more hundred dollars in a bike brand name than to mess around with something like this bike that’s so cheaply made. I feel bad writing this review but it is honest and I think people should know what they’re getting into.
Retrospec customer service was quite unhelpful when I reached out in regards to helping me find parts that needed to be replaced claiming that the bike shops I’d taken the bike to were incorrect about their diagnosis.
Ok but still the bike is unridable, help me ride this product that you sell. I’ve spent about 500 on this bike total at this point purchasing it and getting it fixed up at bike shops, buying parts for it etc.
REI won’t buy it, nor will Play it Again Sports, nor will any other of the 5 local bike shops I tried selling it to in Seattle. ALL of them said that the brand wasn’t something they were able to sell in their stores- especially with the gears needing to be redone it would cost them more to fix it then they would get selling it.
Aside the gears and chain, the physical materials this bike is made out of are so cheap. The break handle completely fell apart in my hand the first time I tried riding it. The lever broke in half. This is not due to assembly error but it’s just the material / poor design.
This bike looks so cute and seems like it would be great but the mechanism for the gears does not accommodate the chain system which is what is causing the chain slipping that SEVERAL other reviews are mentioning.
I hope this review is helpful for the less experienced bikers like myself. Just go to a Sporting Goods store and talk to someone in the industry. Simply look at the amounts of listing on FB Market of people trying to get rid of these bikes in your area.
I was looking to begin commuting via bike and for something to cruise around with my partner. I legit do not know how to ride a bike, so I did not want to spend a bunch of money on something. I also didn‚Äôt want to have a vintage bike bc the shifters seem confusing to me.
I‚Äôm 5‚Äô4‚Äù but for some reason I have a shorter inseam than I thought, and the diamond bikes are all just a tiny bit too big. I don‚Äôt like the curvy lines of most step-through bikes. The mixte was a good option for that.
However, it says it fits people 5‚Äô & I don‚Äôt think it would be a comfortable ride for anyone smaller than I am. I love the aesthetic of this bike and it‚Äôs a nice ride and fit. I had my partner take it for a spin because I have no experience for comparison.
Others say it‚Äôs heavy, but I can lift it with moderate effort. Though i do not have to move it up or down any stairs. I docked a star because the gear shifter handle bar is really tiny. I like that my hand rests on the shifter and that the handle including the shifter is similar in size to the other handle, but it still somehow seems too small.
Also, the outward angle of the handle bars make it impossible to read which gear I‚Äôm in. Not a big deal once I get more comfortable, but I live in a hilly area, so I‚Äôd like to have a sense which gear I‚Äôm in and which gear I prefer for various grades.
The shifting did need quite a bit of tuning and tweaking. My partner took care of it because she likes to help and it was a quick refresher for her to learn (she rides a fixie), but others may have to pay someone for that work and should be aware that would be an additional cost, though I understand it‚Äôs to be expected of a mail delivery bike.
One more tiny bummer is that the basket I ordered was confirmed then retracted for being out of stock. But the bike arrived really quickly, so it‚Äôs okay to wait for the basket to come back into stock.
The Vilano Diverse 3. 0 Performance Hybrid 24 speed is a great all weather bike for every day commuting, group rides, and weekend fun. It features a 6061 Aluminum frame and fork. The disc brakes provide plenty of control and stopping power in varied conditions.
Bike includes water bottle mounts and platform pedals.
I haven’t had a new bike since I was a kid. Recently having a new baby, I wanted something that could fun as an activity. I like the looks of the spike very much, very sleek looking, and read multiple reviews on it.
I have some of that myself and lasted 45 minutes, and brought it to a local bike shop to get fine tuned. I also purchased a new seat as the stock seat was rather uncomfortable. After only about 10 or 15 miles on it, I am very satisfied.
I wish it shifted a little smoother, but then again it’s not a two or $3000 bike. It retails for just under 500, however there was a promotion going on to save 20%, and I purchased it for $375 shipped.
Very happy with my purchase, would highly recommend to someone beginning in the biking world.

I bought this bike because my 20 year old mountain bike was getting too uncomfortable for me due to back issues. The build quality seems to be very good, and the paint is a nice deep blue that doesn’t come out in the online pictures.
The frame geometry coupled with the adjustable stem and high-rise handlebars puts me in an upright riding position, so my back isn’t bent so far now. The larger 700c38 wheels and front shock provide a smoother and more comfortable ride.
The front shock is a little stiffer than what I’m used to, but it does a decent job of absorbing sharp impacts. It should serve its intended purpose fine for the type of riding I do, which is mostly for exercise and riding around the neighborhood with my family.
The gel seat is wider than a MTB saddle, and provides quite a bit more support, so I can even ride without wearing my padded biking shorts. While the seat is mounted on a post with a shock built in, I find that it doesn’t provide a lot of shock absorption as the shock is in-line with the seat post, but the forces from me “bouncing” when going over bumps is at an angle to it, so the seat doesn’t really compress the shock.
If I lean back, I can feel it move more, but that’s not how I ride. I may look at an aftermarket solution for this in the future. The gearing on this bike is a 21-speed (3×7) with a very large low cog, which is quite a bit different from my previous 24-speed (3×8).
I like the fact that the front chain rings have a guard that should keep pants legs from getting caught by the chain and largest ring. While it shares some of the same gearing as my previous bike, the larger wheels (700c38 vs 26×2.
5) result in the same gear ratio requiring more effort, so it’s taking some time to find a new chain ring/sprocket combo that’s comfortable for me, but that’s not a knock on the bike. Just some info for prospective buyers.
The shifting is very quiet, and I like the trigger-style index shifters as opposed to the grip shifters. The front derailleur wasn’t aligned properly when it was installed, so I am having to adjust it so it shifts properly and doesn’t interfere with the chain.
Again, this isn’t a knock on the bike itself, just FYI. The rear has some trouble getting to the smallest cog, but I’m not sure why yet. I’m guessing that it is a matter of getting it adjusted properly and not an issue with the equipment.
The brakes work very well. The levers are plastic instead of aluminum like on my old bike, but since I’m not going to be bombing any backcountry trails any more, this shouldn’t be a problem. They do seem to be very sturdy without any flex.
The tires are a Chinese brand that have a unidirectional road oriented tread, which is perfectly fine for the type of riding I am doing. It should be fine on groomed trails, but I wouldn’t do any kind of off-roading with them as they do not have a very open pattern.
The pedals are plastic platform type pedals with a flat surface, not grip screws or edges. I have not had any problem with keeping my feet on them. My old bike’s pedals have grip screws, and while I can see why you would want them, I found them to be a little too effective.
This made it difficult to make small adjustments to where my feet are set. I will probably remove the screws since my wife is using them now. Overall, I am very pleased with this bike. The only “cons” I can think of are the limited benefits of the seat post shock and the stiffer front shock, but those are very minor things that should not deter anyone from purchasing this bike.
I bought this bike about a month ago and have ridden it about 10 times at varying distances. So far, so good. Smooth ride and the padded seat (with little shocks) help absorb some of the bumps on my routes.
The gear shifters are smooth and easy to manipulate. The one thing to be aware of has nothing to do with the quality of the bike but rather the quality of the build. First, within a couple rides, I found the rear deflector was shifting – when I touched it – and I mean a light touch, it fell off.
Upon further inspection, it was already broken with a piece missing. Clearly someone tried to force it on the post and it broke, so they just plopped it on there hoping no one would notice. The handlebars were very loose and would wiggle no matter how much I tightened the bolts.
It was maddening. I decided to take off the handlebars and see what was up with the bolts, maybe put a washer in there – then I found a little plate on the underside of the handlebars that was barely finger tight.
Once I tightened that panel and reinstalled the handlebars, the wiggle disappeared. All I’m saying is to make sure you thoroughly inspect the bike before you ride off on it.
Was so excited with this Hybrid Bike with it’s aluminum frame and comfort seat with Shimano gears. What a disappointment. First ride things started going wrong so took to a local bike shop to get it a tune up (after 2 rides) they tell me the gears are shot and they can not get any in.
They adjusted the rear smaller gear to partially work but couldn’t do anything with the large pedal sprocket gears. Seat will not stay in place regardless of how much it is tightened and no rotation adjustment for a front to back tilt on the seat so men, better hope your prostates are up for some real pressure! Very dissatisfied!!.
Whether you’re commuting to class or trekking on narrow singletracks, experience it all with the Nishiki Men’s Anasazi Hybrid Bike. Built with a durable aluminum frame, this bike cruises with stability.
The reliable 700C wheels withstand terrain from rocky roads to smooth pavement, while the disc brakes deliver optimum stopping control. If you choose to assemble the bicycle yourself, DICK’S Sporting Goods is not responsible for injuries or damages resulting from improper assembly.
I was replacing a 20 year old Nishiki mountain bike and had a good experience with the brand. I do not need a mountain bike and wanted something easier peddling to ride on paved surfaces and what I got was a bike that feels like I am always climbing a hill with everybody passing me.
I took the bike in for adjustment after my first ride due to rubbing in front. This didn’t resolve my problem and the bike is now at the store waiting for a new disc. I did not buy a service plan and am concerned Dick’s will try to charge me for a repair even though there were problems starting with my first ride.
I bought this recently and didn’t have a chance to ride it until about a week after I got it. I rode it around the store fine but it was making a small scratching noise so the bike tech person adjusted it.
A week later ride it outside and it squeaks. Went to my closest store and they refused to return it despite the defect. They adjusted it but when I rode it home I still heard the squeaking. I shouldn’t have picked up the bike.
The original store I bought it from warned me that this brand comes defective or broken so the bike order might get canceled. That should have been my first red flag. You would expect a new over $400 bike to not make any noise.
Chatted with support and they refused a refund. Really disappointed purchase. Not sure I want to shop at Dick’s anymore.
I was looking for a hybrid bike for a friend and was so impressed by the quality and appearance that I purchased it for myself. Mine is the aluminum version. The bike was built for me. Went over the check list with the tech to make sure everything worked correctly.
The disk brakes needed a slight adjustment. In a few short weeks I now have over 200 miles. Everything still works perfect. It is quiet, comfortable, shifts and brakes well. I am very happy with my purchase and at the sale price I got there is nothing on the market that comes close to it.
I have compared this to Trek Dual Sport, Giant Capri, and a couple of Schwinns and this Nishiki comes out on top.
Exercise, adventure, speedier commuting — the Super Sport is ready for it all. This versatile, 21-speed hybrid bike is designed to take you faster and further, but also includes disc brakes for precision stopping.
Push your bike riding to the next level with this Schwinn bike.
Bike came to me in the mail and I assembled it without any issues – very easy to do all you need is an adjustable wrench and two allen keys. I found it really difficult to locate any good specs on the weight of this bike anywhere – so I weighed it with my luggage scale and it comes to almost exactly 31 lbs.
But the quality is just meh. My 3 biggest complaints about it are: 1. The paint is rubbed down or applied poorly in several spots 2. Both chain derailliers had the cable attached incorrectly. There is a groove that the cable is supposed to be clamped into and in both cases, it was barely held on by just a corner.
3. The chain sprocket on the pedals is pit-of-plane to the bike frame. As you spind the peddles, you can see the sprocket waving in and out. This is the most annoying part because no matter how you adjust the front deraillier, the chain will hit the guide for half the rear speeds.
All in all, its really not bad, but I would not buy this bike again. I was expecting more for nearly $500 and I am certain there are better options out there for the price.
I’m very pleased with my purchase of the Schwinn Signature Sport Bike. First off the bike arrived two days earlier than promised and the bike was really well packaged for shipment; no damage. Also assembly was straight forward and did not require any gear or brakes tuning and the rims were perfectly true.
Road the bike first outing and found the aluminum frame to be sturdy but nimble on rough road. Bike Shifts and brakes responsively. Only issue to address is the bike’s sizing. I’m 73 inches tall and bought the X-Large.
It is definitely at my limit for sizing. If you are 72 inches or less recommend the large frame. Great bike and very pleased with the on-line experience.
Bought this bike almost a year ago now and I couldn’t be happier with it! I bought the Super Sport mainly for a biking trip I took with 3 friends during the spring last year. To say the least, it held up very well! We biked 75 miles from southeast Mass.
to a campsite in Conn. in a single day. My friends and I even took turns riding it because of how smooth and fast it rides on the road. Since that trip, using my Super Sport has gotten me into biking more often.
I’m very happy with this purchase and plan on using this bike for years to come! Other notes: -I’m 5’11” and own the large size frame, which I think it great. -Gears shift well. -Assembly was no issue.
Designed for recreational use and around-town commuting, the 700c Kent Ridgeway Hybrid Bicycle features a hand-crafted, lightweight 6061 aluminum frame and a 60mm travel front suspension fork for a comfortable ride on a variety of road surfaces.
This well thought out hybrid bicycle is equipped with 21 speeds to suit any terrain up and down hills, and has linear pull brakes for confident stopping power. Additional details include 36 spoke double wall alloy rims, an alloy quick release seat clamp, a rear rack, and front and rear fenders.
I was a little concerned when my bike came with a large tear in the box. Everything looked to be complete in it though. I was unable to assemble the bike myself so I paid a local bike shop $100 to assemble it for me.
Worth the headache to me! She rides smooth and is easy pedal. The seat is the most comfortable bike seat I have ever sat on. I just took it out for a spin for the first time this morning and can’t wait until the weather is cooler so I can enjoy my new Ridgeway some more!.
If I could get it assembled. It’s been two days and I still haven’t been able to complete the assembly. If it’d have come with the brakes fully assembled. I followed the instructions, but something didn’t work right and now the front brake wire is stuck in the handle bar, unattached.
It came loose after I assembled it. With something as important as brakes, I’d think they should have been fully preassembled. If the required tools were included. I don’t have all the tools that it says I need.
There doesn’t seem to be any tools included although the instructions say they are.
I’m really happy with how well this bike performed. It felt like I was gliding along the pavement truly awesome! Also, the rear rack it such a necessity people who actually ride bikes often should understand what I mean that sometimes you don’t know how badly they are needed.
The 700c men’s Ridgeland single speed bike combines style, practicality and speed for a one-of-a-kind ride that is sure to excite Kent Bicycles enthusiasts. You can have both stunning looks and practical design in one sturdy package.
This Ridgeland features a steel frame and fork with a steel rise stem and alloy rim. This combination creates a sleek-looking piece that is both durable and lightweight. The full-protection chain guard keeps the bike chain on track and away from your legs for a secure ride.
The bicycle is also fitted with front and rear alloy brakes for added control and stability. The fun looking turquoise blue, green, and yellow Ridgeland bike is ideal for city dwellers or anybody looking for a bike that is simple to operate and easy to maintain.
Right off the bat this bike gets a wee bit tricky to assemble when you get to the brakes. Balancing the brake pads so they’re even distance from the rim both sides takes way too much fiddling around.
You’ll set them up and it rubs one side. Then over kill the adjustment, touches other side. It’s an overly complicated brake adjustment system. Designers way overthinking it. I recommend taking the brake assembly completely off because there’s no paint or lubricant on the pivot point off the forks.
Coat it with some grease. People mention the tires arrived “flat” kinda misleading, they just need inflating to correct pressure. The chain on mine was crazy tight so I adjusted the back wheel. After 15 or so miles the chain was so loose it kept jumping off the rear sprocket.
So be aware it stretches quite a bit, quite fast. Seat is a bit of a mystery. Can’t tell if I like it or not. Looks comfortable but find myself squirming around readjusting after 3-4 miles. I’m 6’2” 210lbs and overall I’m happy with it.
Definitely smooth ride and don’t feel like I’m smashing my berries on every bump like my last more expensive road bike. Once it’s all assembled correctly and dialed in it’s a great bike.
The Cannondale Men’s Quick CX 3 Urban Bike is built for city and town pathways, open countryside and everything else in between. Comfort, control, visibility, and speed are all taken care of with this bike.
To keep you in charge of the highways and byways at all times, this bike has bump-absorbing suspension forks, multi-surface tires, and reflective graphics. It has an upright, mountain bike inspired riding position that feels natural, confident and comfortable in all riding situations.
Every detail has been thought through on the CX giving it a noticeably lighter weight that offers outstanding performance both on and off-road. Expand your horizon on the one bike to rule them all, the Cannondale Men’s CX 3 Urban Bike.
This bike was worth the price and extra for direct shipping! I’ve been riding hybrid road bikes for commuting more than 25 years. My previous bikes were used, well-worn-in and never fit my body shape.
The lighter weight frame, improved disc-brakes and high quality tires are a bonus. I ordered this without trying the bike out in-store. It was a gamble, but I’m glad I did. I took measurements and had been looking for a new bike nearly 2 years.
I wanted something quick, easy to ride and maneuverable in a city. This bike is just that! Very responsive, good brakes and extra reflective features on the frame. I feel confident riding this in an extremely dangerous city environment.
The only reason it doesn’t get an extra 5th star is that it’s not a pure road bike. I give this 4. 8 stars for value for price but I am a true long-distance road cyclist and the gears feel limiting to me.
I can’t achieve the kind of consistent cruising speeds I prefer with a hybrid bike, but it’s not designed for that, so I acknowledge the limitation. I’m satisfied with the out-of-the-box purchase. REI made the order and delivery smooth.
The freight driver was local and even suggested some great urban trails. I’m looking forward to riding this in-between my road-running intervals.
I was expecting another slow hybrid bike, but this thing has exceptional wheels and can really go when asked, almost as fast as a good fast road bike, but with more comfort. I own a 2020 version and was glad to see the hand grips got the needed improvement, I changed mine out, first thing.
The tires have also been changed, I can’t comment about that, I found mine satisfactory and durable, having almost worn my rear tire smooth at this time. I use the bike often, mainly to replace my car for casual around town needs, so changed the stem to a more upright riding position, which surprisingly still felt good with the supplied saddle.
I changed the saddle needlessly to one I was more familiar with, and kept the OEM seat as a spare, because I might spend hours on the bike and didn’t want surprises. I added a rear rack which allowed me to severely overload the rear wheel, hitting holes and bumps in the street while carrying lots of heavy groceries plus my 220 pound self home, and the wheel remains true.
I inadvertently learned not to lay the bike down repeatedly on the derailluer side , which , in time, allowed it to catch and wrap into the wheel, destroying the plastic spoke protector along with the chain, but the wheel is still very true, with the spokes still straight and tensioned.
Thank goodness this bike has a replaceable derailleur hanger, so with that new part and a new chain, I was back riding, good as new. My main attraction to this bike was that it was the nicest hardtail I could find with room for a center mounted kick stand to be added, I didn’t want the screwy rear position type.
Now I think I might love the high quality brakes more, they are a complete joy and really add to a quality experience at an important touch point. The shift controls are a little small for my hands, requiring some repositioning of my hand to use, but not a deal breaker.
I can say the same thing for the thumb bell I added. I also added a rubber tip on the kickstand, to better accommodate various floors when parked, along with fenders and a good U lock, which I carry secured on my rear rack when not in use.
I learned the hard way about U locks , and suggest it is the superior design choice. I even have a second thug weight kryptonite lock to use if I go downtown. I also switched to theft resistant axles, no quick releases on this city bike, same with my lighting.
I once stopped for lunch at the pier and every bike had their lights stolen except mine. Frame is really nice, impressive tech and finished to a high standard. I am glad they went away from the very boring, invisible at night, black paint used on my bike.
The reflective gold trim under the clear coat on mine doesn’t seem to do much.
I bought 2 weeks ago and done 100 miles on this and have become used to it and got to know the bike. Firstly really good service from the chap at Sigma that served me. And for the bike, it’s great. Positive; It rides just like a normal bike, it gives you that kick you need to ease the lumps and makes a 30 mile ride feel like a breeze.
It has 3 settings I’ve mainly had the first one green which gives the kick you need and had at least 25% left after 45 miles, flat riding lumpy fen roads. It has two extra levels orange and red for more boost.
I can’t comment to much as with no hills it’s hard to judge the extra output. You can also turn the electric off totally on smooth flats and bike as a regular bike. The negatives: The light button is a little fiddly especially on bumpy road to make your selection for what level you’re on.
The ride is quite hard on flat bumpy roads as it’s a ridged frame. To conclude a great bike a nice ride but as most are roads are so alwful be prepared to get used to the vibration.
A great all around bike that can handle city commuting, fitness training, or longer excursions. Designed for comfort over the long haul, the Barron comes with a suspension front fork and a wide cushy saddle.
Conquer the hills with Shimano Megarange Altus 21-speed gearing controlled with handlebar-mounted Revo shifters. Equipped with powerful hand-operated linear pull brakes, quick-release wheels with alloy double-wall rims and 700 x 32c tires.
Your dream bike if. Your route takes you anywhere from downtown to the coastline. You love seamless gear changes, lots of speed options, and hitting the perfect cadence. Most importantly, you want a comfortable, versatile bike for workout sprints or speeding at sunset.
It’s all in the details. Barron sports Shimano Tourney front and 7S rear derailleurs to give you a wide range of gearing with smaller intervals of effort input. This allows you to get the exact pedaling feeling you’re seeking with smoother transitions in between.
Easily switch gears with at-your-fingertips Revoshift twist shifters. No matter the terrain, Barron’s comfort suspension fork absorbs the shock of bumps for optimal comfort, control, and safety on the road.
Barron’s wide 38C tires will smooth out the rest. The cherry on top. This comfort hybrid bike’s sleek frame, ergonomic bike seat, cushy grips, and riser handlebars make it perfect for the comfort-conscious (and stylish) cyclist.
Let’s start with the Pros: The Bubble Gum color is great! The frame is relatively lightweight. It pedals nice. The bike arrived in good shape with all the parts. Cons: The seat could be more comfortable, but it is ok.
Will probably upgrade to memory foam at some point. The front wheel is not quick release. There is one design flaw explained by my very experienced bike mechanic. The front cogs are set too far to the right of the front derailleur.
The issue this causes is you cannot shift onto the large front cog if the chain is on the smaller cogs in the rear. You have to shift to a larger cog in the rear before you can move onto the large cog in the front.
It’s an inconvenience, but not a fatal flaw. At this price point, perfection would be a lot to ask for. Overall I am happy with the purchase.
The bicycle is a dream to ride. Light weight, comfortable and the shift gear are easy and transitioned well. In my old bicycle I was only able to ride for 3 miles and this one so far I managed to ride for 8 miles.
Assembly was a breeze with. YouTube video I found. It took me 1 hour to put together. I bought a brown seat, but it wasn’t necessary as the seat it comes with looks just as wide and comfortable. I am 5’2” and bought the Extra small size 14 and if fits my body like a glove when riding.
A great investment and highly recommend. I got the bubble gum color online the color looks brighter, but in person is more of a subtle pink. I will mainly use it on paved trail to work out.
I bought the Comfort to replace a 19. 5″ Jamis Citizen that was taller than I liked and had skinnier tires than I liked. The Medium size, 18″ Comfort has exactly the same standover as the 19. 5 inch Jamis! Oh well.
I solved one of the two things I was after! I was a little concerned about moving from a steel frame to aluminum, and I can tell the difference in the way road shocks are transmitted. The front shock forks help.
I replaced the seat immediately. It was OK, but not great. I may change out the seat mounting stem to a piston-type next. I love the graphite color, the wider tires, the higher handlebars, and the shifters.
The Jamis had shift-grips too, but these are better. I am still dialing in the derailer range adjustments as the front derailer currently only likes to get on two of the rings, and the back only on 6 or the 7: the big ring in the back is not quite in range.
I’ll figure out the range adjustments over the next few rides. I should say that this is expected. Derailers are very analog in the way they are set up. You can set them up at the factory, but the bike really needs final adjustments on the road.
Pay attention to the standover doc on this model! It says medium is 31″ and I did not believe a 1. 5 inch smaller frame (Jamis versus Retrospec) would have the same standover as the Jamis, but it does.
If I were buying this bike again, I would get a small, and I’m 6 feet tall. I have short legs for my height and inseam is everything on something like this. I’ll also replace the grips soon as I can find some short (to fit the grip-shift length) padded ones.
These put my hands to sleep quickly (so did the Jamis. ) The bike was well packed and easy to assemble. Took no time. All the stickers on the frame and parts made it easy. I never opened the manual. My daughter has a Retrospec Harper, and we are fans of the price / performance of these units.
Sure: Some things need to be replaced (seat / grips), but the core is solid. Wheels, tires, gears, frames, etc are really good for the price, and it’s easy to update the few things that bother us. The Harper came without a kickstand so that has been a challenge to deal with as it seems that type of bike (single speed / Fixie) does not have hardpoints for one.
The Sirrus X is a comfortable, capable, “let’s do stuff” kind of bike that will inspire you to ride more than you ever have before.

I will start by saying that I don’t think my experience is the same as everyone’s, and I know that the bikes are not low quality as we bought this bike, a bike for my wife, and a trailer to pull our two kids.
We got the bikes and trailer, and I put them together, seemingly without issue. We were able to test the bikes, and again no issue with the low stress test, everything seemed in order. The first time I added the trailer the added stress was too much for the bike, and the entire rear derailleur fell off mid ride.
When I reached out to customer support, I was told that, “our derailleurs do sometime require adjustment right out of the box due to being bumped around during shipping. ” Which I understand as I spen two years in college assembling bikes for a sporting good store.
While I understand that different parts of the bike require adjustments out of the box, a derailleur falling of a bike does is not a normal thing for a bike to do out of the box. When I was taking pictures of the damage for customer support I noticed multiple threads were worn bare which should not come from less than a week of owning the bike and less than 2 miles of riding it.
After the back and forth with customer support all that was offered was a replacement hanger and derailleur which are not easy installs and would require to pay to have it installed or take the time to do it myself.
The communication from customer support was slow, taking multiple hours to respond to each message, and one time taking more than 24 hours. While I understand that sometimes bad products ship, how it was very frustrating and disappointing to say the least.
You get what you pay for. And then China kicks in. It’s okay quality and will last two years I guess – and that is what we planned. The frame is low. If you don’t know about bikes and how to fix them you should not expect this to work right away- the brakes are rather cheap and you need to adjust them.
There are tons of videos about it. My bike came with some rusted parts but I figured it out- don’t forget about the price point. Also you need to grease up all the parts and the brake lines of course – just to manage expectations.
The tools are provided except of the saddle part that won’t fit. Anyway there is no cheaper way to get a ride… also my first bike came totally smashed up and the rear derailleur was bend – as well as the wheel and the frame- but customer support was spot on I have to say! Not their fault but I got a new bike that was okay!.
After assembling the bike, I took it out for a test ride. The gears didn’t shift property from the start, only the right gears were responding. After a couple minutes riding around the block, shifting gears and trying out the breaks.
The bike abruptly catches, almost flying me OTB. Taking a closer look, I saw that the rear derailleur had completely bent after getting caught in the rear tire. My only thought is that the factory might have put it together incorrectly?.
FX 2 Disc is a stylish and versatile hybrid bike with disc brakes that let you stop on a penny and ask for change, even when the weather isn’t cooperating. Train, commute or ride for fun with the lightweight aluminium frame, 18 speeds, and semi-skinny tyres that are fast on the road and stable on loose terrain.
At this time of the year I stow away my all singing all dancing carbon framed bike and normally spend the winter on a steel framed single speed, and have done so for the last eight years or so, but as I push ever on into my fifties the thought of riding those hills on a singly filled me with a bit of apprehension this year – it’s time for some gears.
I wanted a mid range(ish) flat bar hybrid bike, didn’t want suspension, wanted disk brakes so did a bit of Googling – this one had good reviews so I went for it. And. It’s fine. That’s not fair really, as it’s better than fine, it’s quite good – solidly built, quite nice styling, quiet, slick changes considering the components, and the saddle is lovely.
I’m also really impressed with the brakes – never really had disk brakes before, and they will stop you on a sixpence. I like it, and am happy with the purchase, and would recommend it if anyone asked.
I’ve done just over 100 dry miles in the week I’ve had it, and perversely I’m looking forward to a wet and windy ride to see how it copes. Any complaints? Well – it’s a bit dull. Now this actually is a positive – I wanted dull, reliable, boring, and I have to keep telling myself this is what I wanted.
But it’s just a bit unresponsive. I suppose after summers on a carbon bike with big gears, and the challenge of a single speed on climbs over the winter this was inevitable. I get to the bottom of a climb, one I would normally huff and puff up, drop it into a low gear and have no problems with it.
Where’s the fun in that? Its also a lot slower, no matter how hard I try to push. Biggest gear on a nice flat road and it just doesn’t – go. This is what I wanted, but I think I perhaps could have had another year on the singly.
As for Evans themselves – no probs whatsoever. The staff at Sutton Coldfield were pleasant, courteous, helpful. I’ve used Evans before and will do so again, some of my bike nerdy friends shun them, but I don’t really get that, I’m no bike snob and they offer a good service.
So to sum up – a nice bike, if nothing spectacular, and I think I’ll be on it for a few years yet. At least I haven’t gone over to the devil’s work of the “Electric Bike” yet.
Back in 2015, I brought a Trek Fx 4 (£1000), Trek decided to make a racing bike a hybrid bike, initially I thought this was strange way of going around it , as traditionally it’s the other way around MTB to Hybrid that most manufactures do, and continue to this day.
FX4 was technically the best bike I had for commuting to work, there no effort and the seating position, ideally for hills and general avoiding idiots on the road. Design for solely road only, no fancy coil forks, proper disc brakes the list could continue.
Sadly, the FX4 got stolen, searching for a replacement, went on for years and years. And finally, I found the FX 2, this is a exact copy of the FX4. With unique features that you expect on a £1000 bike.
For example, there’s Bluetooth detector, that if you get the app it will give performance feedback. OK it has 24 gears, but they are ample, the discs brake are standard but brakes pad are cheap. I can fault it.
It should be 4/5 stars. I would like to rate this bike higher but as it is I can’t. I caution anyone buying a bike on line (sadly I had to due to time constraint- lesson learnt) The bike itself is sound, the brakes good, and its a fast, light, comfortable ride and at the price ideal as my daily commuter hack doing 120+ miles a week.
However the rear cassette and free wheel are terrible. Having seen a few forums since it seems it is a common problem with this entry level bike with lots of references to loud, wobbly, and grinding freewheel.
If you want one I recommend you get it at the shop and try it out so you don’t end up with a Friday model. Balfes Bikes have been great about dealing with the issue and are taking this problem back to Trek to try and get a replacement freewheel.
or credit note to replace the rear cassette completely. Good luck!.
