What do you think of these brands?


I'm searching for a mountainbike. Are these brands good enough for some low-key mountainbiking? I'll just be riding some trials.

- Kiyoko
- Arinos (beast)
- Stratos alu 1000
- Cross Gravito Alivio
- B-twin

nice names , never seen any, in my local bike shop.

I'm in the USA, different countries importers get different brand names ,
sometimes they all are made in batches under contract in the same factories in China or Taiwan ,
where contract multi brand manufacturing is done.

B-twin is the house brand of Decathlon which is a sporting goods chain in Europe and the UK. Their are some good bikes in the range the market but like all manufacturers they have lower priced, lower quality, entry level bikes and higher priced, better spec'ed higher performance bikes. whether it will suit your needs depends on the model and what it is equiped with as opposed to the brand alone.

found some info on the Kiyoko... it's brightly painted garbage.

i'd guess the other "brands" you listed are also garbage.

find a local bike shop that sells used bikes... find one that you like, and that is your size... buy it.
