    Micargi GTS

    For $215 are these bike of "ok" quality? I know for the money, I'm not expecting a life long bike, but will it hold up 10 mi's round trip to the beach and back 5-6 times a month? Anybody have one, opinions, or thoughts on comfort? Thanks

    OK...I don't read alot about Micargi's...heh heh...but my local bike shop guy thinks they are OK for the money and I trust his opinion. Their import warehouse is located in my hometown. I rode over there one day just for fun and I like the look of many of their designs.

    With that amount of mileage I would venture to say you will be fine on that bike.

    Hi LSUFan, I don't see why they wouldn't work for your stated purpose. You may eventually decided that you enjoy riding so much that you might want to upgrade, but for general purpose cruising, it's a cheap way to start.

    I have a Micargi Tahiti NX3, so far real good. It hides it's cheapness well. Although I've heard their springer forks bend and crack easily and are squeaky. My spring sear squeaks a lot. I sprayed it down with WD40 to no avail. I've put about that much mileage on mine, but I've only had it a month.
