This year I switch to better grade equipment, including bikes made by Giant, Motobecane, and Fuji. Of all the department store level bicycles I had, this is the only one I am planning to keep. It is a very decent bike for the money, however, it has the 52/42 double crankset. This is not for everyone, especially on hills. I plan on changing that out for a compact made by Origin8. I changed the Falcon Freewheel out for a Sunrace which is better quality. I have changed the Shimano derailleur out for a smoother Shimano unit (TX 55)with a “smart-cage” design. I do not plan on spending a lot on this bike, but am planning to keep it for friends to ride, or to ride in bad weather. The tires were decent. One thing that should be addressed however, is that the rear dropout spacing is 135mm., meaning this is a mountain bike hub and it is hard to find replacement wheelsets for these. One could have a rear wheel laced up to a mountain bike quick release hub, I am sure. This is one of the main reasons why I have upgraded, as nearly all department store road bikes have 135mm rear hubs at this time. This also includes the GMC and Genesis bikes manufactured by Kent International.

I’ll take my older Schwinn bikes from the 60,s 70,s and 80,s anyday over these things.

Jason Freeman says:

Nice bike

David Saint Cyr says:

the bike is called Solara, pronounced “So Lara” like Lara Croft from Tomb Raider…

But anyway nice review, and it seems you guys have some proper road bikes to ride and take impressions from, so I value your input and opinion.

talking about how someone modded a bike isnt really a review but thanks for the input.

Christian A says:

Chad Swoveland says:

How did the 50 miles do for that bike??? Have you run into any issues with it since???

Graydon Buchleiter says:

pfft real road bikes don’t have that crap…unless you commute.
Then you NEED a kickstand.
Good review otherwise though.
