Hybrid Bicycles - New Rider. 2012 Quick 4 for 467, should I do it.
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
So I have a seasonal job at a store that sells bikes and can get most things for a good bit off retail. I am thinking of getting a quick 4, at a steal of 467 OTD, but I am not sure of the no name shimano components. Not like I am a hard core rider or even planning on hitting very many hills, I just want something low Maintence and durable.
Additionally, are there any upgrades out of the box you all recommend?
MSRP is $700 so unquestionably this is a great deal, assuming it is the right size for you.
If you aren't sure about the bike I am guessing that you work at REI or similar sports/outdoors retailer that has more than just bikes and your dept is something else. You will get more value out of your discount if you get a more expensive bike, but the Quick 4 is a decent starting bike. You will get better components as you move up.
Maintenance and durability will not change much amongst these models. If you want to ride hard offroad, I would get a mountainbike rather than a Quick.
Don't forget accessories. You will need a helmet, gloves and pump at a minimum. I would highly suggest cycling pants, a patch kit, at least one spare tube, inflator or frame pump, two bottle cages and bottles.
