    Cheap Bike Report Coming

    I ride a Trek 1200c which is a relaxed geometry "comfort road" bike. I was wondering what a normal geometry road bike was like to ride and also wanted something to throw on the trainer for the winter. However, if I spent anywhere near the same as the Trek cost I would have been ducking flying kitchen utensils.

    Disclaimer - I know there is a lot of negative feelings about Bikes Direct and the Moto/Mercier/Windsor bikes. I am not trying to start a flame war thread.

    I was crusing ebay last week and noticed a seller (BD) had a Windsor Wellington for $240 + $40 shipping. This is a pretty low tech bike, Kenesis Alum frame, 7-speed cassette, Stem shifters, and two ring Shimano crank. I ordered one just to see what it was like. I just noticed that on the UPS site that it was delivered today.

    I will post a report on the quality, assembly process, and initial ride assesment soon.

    Just make sure the flying kitchen utensils don't hit the bike, and keep your helmet on.
