Jeremy Shanks says:

I been riding a 26″ mountain bike Genesis v2100 with my friend Specific and we get along fine I gave $119 andhe gave $800 everybody on here are bike snobs

Jeremy Hansen says:

“hey guys stick with known brands” Names a ton of random brands with no reputation.

roadstar499 says:

depending on what type of riding you do and if speed matters or not should be an important factor before purchasing a bike…some people will just use a bike for 2 or 3 short rides a week for exercise…so even a $200 bike will be great for them…others ride very often far and competitively and they will want a much better quality cycle…


average in malaysia how much ?

Christopher Hiew Wei Jian says:

USD or what ???

Bryant 'S channel says:

In Malaysia $500 is how much

Izzy Dangerous says:

Throw all these bikes in the trash and get an entry level hybrid from Trek, Giant, Specialized, etc. Trek fx 2 is 1000% better than all these p.o.s

Theodor Zaharie says:

I’m inclining somehow towards Merax or Giordano.
I’m 6.5″ and I’m looking for comfortable bike, since my goal is to have longer stints, on flat, non-hilly, roads.
Also I would love not to have bike expenses in the next 1 year or so, after I made purchase.

So what would you recommend?

Good Day.

Fabian Munoz says:

Thanks! great and useful video!

Sitou Dien says:

I wouldn’t recommend any of these brands unless this is your budget. These are low quality bikes. If you’re buying for a child it might be worth it. If you break it, repairs will be costly and not worth it. Go with the big brands like Trek, Specialized, GT, Jamis, etc… They do have entry level bikes in the sub $1000 that are leagues above brands mentioned here.

Jason Moon says:

i got me a Giordano Libero, and i LOVE it!!!

Gamaliel Murillo says:

you should put subtitles to understand better. good video though thanks

Saad Usman says:

Looking to purchase a level entry road bike. This was helpful but I’m still not sure which route to take. What was your reasoning for the way you ranked these? What separates the Schwinn 1300 from the Vilano? I would appreciate some more insight! Great summary nonetheless 🙂

Nick Fanella says:

MarClash says:

Zonto says:

I want to start riding and have a budget of £500. All I’m going to do is ride to work, and go on a bike trip with friends any suggestions

Kenz300 x says:

Ride to work…….ride to school……….ride for fun………………..
Riding a bike is good exercise and will keep you healthy and fit………….
Cities need to do more to encourage safe bicycle use……….employers need to support bicycle use by proving places to lock and store bicycles…….speak up and encourage your elected officials to support bike and walking paths that connect homes, schools and businesses. Children need to start riding at an early age. Riding a bike to school is better than being dropped off in a car.

Thanks for the review! Do you think buying a new road bike altogether in the price range is worth it or restoring an old bike I bought for like $150? Like a Fuji

James Vo says:

I’m 5’5 will the first bike be okay to ride comfortably?

GRAM Channel says:

My weight is below 300 lbs ive been walking 2 miles per day. It starts to get monotonous so i was planning to switch it up a bit. The bikes look really thin and look like they would bend with too much weight are any of these capable to carry 300 lbs? I say 300 but its more around 250 i still want to make sure it can carry.
