This is my alternating commuter. It was only $349 new. Sora equipped with an aluminum frame.
Pros: Great Price, aero rims, aluminum frame, Sora(at this price), good colors, just plain works good.
Cons: brake pads are mush (easily replaced), seat a little stiff (replaced it with a softer one I had yesterday.)
Bottom line: daily driver, charity rider, Iron Horse built a good bike and this one is $250 under priced, comparable bikes Trek 1000 and Giant OCR3.
(I saw a entry level lemond all Sora equipped for $999, wasn't sure if they were charging for the name or the frame, or maybe they have a big light bill. Good bike but under equipped for the price, be like paying 50K for a mercedes with a 4 banger, no air, and roll down windows)
