These bikes are not "beat the hell out of on your neighborhood single track bikes," those bikes cost a little more. These are sub $500.00 bicycles that can be ridden around town, bike trails, Greenways, gravel roads etc. They're easy to find, Trek, Giant and Specialized dealerships can be found in most urban areas. They're rims will stay true. They're brakes will stop you and they're derailleur's will continue to shift properly long after your first ride.These bikes are inexpensive and dependable but most importantly fun to ride. They're "Big Box Store Busters." Inexpensive but built well enough to demonstrate the true joys of cycling to the entry level cyclist or just for the person on a sub $500.00 budget, of which there are many these days.
