I came across this the other day. I bought it for two reasons. 1, to check out an entry level road bike and see just what it had to offer for the money. 2, It fit the bill to do an inexpensive drop bar road bike to flat bar sport hybrid modification. Oh yea, 3, it was cheap to pick up. $130, chump change in my book for a solid platform that is not a Dept. store bike. Basic alloy frame, Cromo fork. Nothing fancy about the tubing and comes in @ 24lbs. So far so good. The Tektro dual-pivot brakes are great, work as well as most any Shimano 105 set. The groupo on this bike is Shimano 2200 series, very similar to Sora I would say. runs out fine for the money. Around $410 list. I will post a new thread on how to do the flat bar mod and will be using this bike as an example. Enjoy the pics!

I will probably want to sell them. It helps offset the price of the modification. I kinda wanted to sell the bars/cylocross levers/shifters together but not absolute. I will send you a pm.
