Q: Road Bike
Thread started by Zboy at 04.16.11 - 5:52 am

So I have been looking around for a good road bike as my Schwinn won't cut it for now and a friend has offered me a 21 speed, 2007, 700c Danali for $100. The gears stick a bit and the bars need new wraps but other then that I don't see much of a problem. It's weight comes in around 29lbs where my Schwinn is 44.

This being my first possible road bike I was wondering your thoughts on it.

Thanks for the help guys.

Well it has a lot more positive feed back then negative and being a begginer road biker I'm thinking it might work as a first bike.

I am honestly concerned about the dropped handlebars. After riding BMX for so many years that style just feels so unnatural as well as feeling like it's hard to reach the breaks. Is it a fast transition to dropped or does it really take some getting used to?

What about as a first bike Gav? Still wouldn't suggest it?

Do you know if the bike fits you? Those drop bars won't be fun if it's too long of a reach for you. There are size charts online to give you a rough idea, but it's best to just try the bike and see if it feels comfortable. Can you adjust the cables so that it shifts smoothly? Is the rear derailer bent? Does anything look worn down that you'll need to replace soon?

You get what you pay for with cheap bikes. It's sort of like buying a used car--sometimes the really cheap ones cost the most in maintenance. Depending on how much you plan on using this you may want to find something a little nicer. Since a new one sells for ~$100-200, I'd offer your friend $50. In a perfect world we'd all ride nice bikes with reliable components.

Ok cool. I will save up for a better one. Any you guys could suggest that I wouldn't have to sell a kidney for?

you can look for better used stuff or go a shop for your first because they will help you with sizing and probably offer free tune ups and stuff (if you dont know how to do that)

I built my cannondale with cinelli stem and shimano parts gor $60 at the bike kitchen. In the process learned about my bike n met cool people. You may not get as lucky as I did, but for me it was worth looking into.

Yeah, head to your local bike co-op (i.e. Bike Oven if you're in NELA, Bike Kitchen around East Hollywood and Bikerowave if you're WeWe (West of Western!) There needs to be a permanent list of bike co-ops on this site... or is there already?

Friends don't let friends ride junk.

Spend the money around $2000.00 and get a real bike.

Otherwise your better of with your Schwinn as it will survive through armagedon.

BIKE OVEN OR THE BIKE KITCHEN!!!!

Build up your bike. Get the perfect size frame and build it from scrap. I built my old bike from parts at the Kitchen and it was a beast on the road.

I think I've spent a total of $2000, max, on the 6 or so bikes that I own. They're all REAL bikes, and my friends don't view me any less. The fact that I built or restored them all to their current condition (5 totally ridable) re-affirms my belief that you DO NOT have to spend that much money to have a GOOD to AWESOME bike.

I believe shops still have last season models on clearance, at least the shop near my apartment still does. It' a good way to get a pretty good stock bike for a lot less than you would usually have to pay

Beverly Hills bike shop. I went in last week and they still had Tarmacs discounted, but they may have been snatched up
