Is this a decent bike for the price?
I'm looking for a new bike that's around $300. I know it's tough to get a decent one at that price, but I want one that will last a while.
Is this a good choice?
I was also thinking about this one because of the 30+ awesome reviews, but the colours aren't that pleasant.

It was heavy Hi-Ten steel and I ended up changing most of the parts on the bike (crank, brakes, handlebars). I probably could have bought myself a Kilo with all the money I spent, but I did have fun with that bike all summer before someone stole it.
I wouldn't buy that bike again, especially for $200, or if you plan on upgrading parts.
I now have a Kilo and am happy with it. The difference is noticeable.
That sloping top tube looks pretty awful. Go for a Kilo TT, the most supreme bicycle in the worlt. Don't forget to throw a 650cc rim on the front for proper credit score
