The Under $700 Roadbike Thread

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

This worked great on the MTB forum... list bikes here that are under $700 and anything you know about them good/bad. That way we avoid a lot of "I don't want to spend a lot of money what roadbike should I get?" repeats. If anyone thinks its a good idea, sticky this bad boy.

The first candidate:

Schwinn Fastback Sport, $549.99

Nice bike for the money, much better deal than most other manufacturers are offering at this price. Downside is Sora shifters but at this price you can't complain at all.

Trek 1000 649.99





Very nice bike for the money. I can not stand sora components which is a major down side. The carbon fork is a nice addition and the weight is not bad for the price range. The saddle is not bad either. It is definitly not a 1500 or 2100 - 2300 but it does its job. Good entry level bike by a very good company.

So anyone know about a sub $700 road bike that doesn't have Sora STI? Move into the $800 range and you start seeing Tiagra.

Lemond Nevada City $549-$599

I have this bike, and love it. Cycling coach recomended it for an entery level road bike. Sora STI shifters haven't been bad, and the Tiagra rear is bomber. Really comfortable once I dialed it in and got some miles on it. I'd recomend it for a test ride to anyone on a budget!

MODEL Nevada City
COLOR Metallic blue/white
SIZES 49cm, 51cm, 53cm, 55cm, 57cm, 59cm, 61cm
MAINFRAME Sloping geometry, LeMond 6061 aluminum, 1.5cm headtube extension
FORK Carbon fiber
HEADSET SlimStak Direct Connect
BOTTOM BRACKET Cartridge
CRANK SR Superbe
double: 53/39
triple: 52/42/30
PEDALS Alloy road, sealed, w/clips and straps

This is a good thread. I want a bike for my gf but I do campy and nothing but campy. (that way...when I bust a wheel...I can steal hers...!!!). Glory Cycles has the the Veloce 10 group for $499. I have some spare wheels so all I need is a cheap frame and fork....

Any deals out there?

Some of you should consider finding someone else to host your pictures. Bandwidth theft isn't cool. Great idea for a thread though. Wish it would have been around when I bought my Felt.

Tiagra is a little better quality and a little more money. Tiagra isn't worth it tho... If you can't afford 105, then buy a Sora bike, and upgrade to 105 or Ultegra (based on value at the time), when the Sora parts wear out. Assuming the frame you bought is worthy of the upgrades... this is why you should buy the frame and not worry about the components.

Do you go looking for things to complain about? The manufacturers would not only NOT care about the bandwidth if they found out, but probably send these people a t-shirt or something for promoting THEIR products.

I VERY seriously doubt that the companies hosting these images would consider linking to images of their products on a user forum to be bandwidth theft. It's the best possible kind of advertising, word of mouth.

Fuji used to make a low-end steel bike, but I think the Finest now has an AL fork I have the 2003 and it's light enough weight, but still a tank... I've put 3000+miles and three centuries on the frame and fork and haven't had a complaint. It tracks well in the twisties and I've never had a vibration problem, even at 50mph. I've upgraded to mostly ultegra over the past six months. All low-end bikes have the same low-end components... buy the frame.

Specialized Dolce Sport 04 (WSD) $660

http://www.specialized.com/SBCBkMode...94n22eb.j27008
I almost bought this, until I tried the allez ($620)

http://www.specialized.com/SBCBkMode...94n22eb.j27008

and liked it better, plus it was $40 less than the Dolce FOR NO REASON other than it wasn't a women's specific frame. I hate that.

Both of these are aluminum w/ carbon fork, Sora/Tiagra parts.

K2 Mach 1.0 must be well under $700
http://www.k2bike.com/04products/road/mach1.asp

Maybe even the Mach 2.0

I also saw a Raleigh Sport 04 w/ a price tag in the lower 500s (I can't remember exact)
http://www.raleighusa.com/items.asp?...temid=161&va=0

And no one mentioned Giant's OCR3 though it has many fine reviews in this forum:
http://www.giant-bicycle.com/us/030....43&model=10875
Mid-season it was only $649 one place I saw.

I think the Jamis Satellite is steel --
http://www.jamisbikes.com/bikes/04_satellite.html
I don't know the price, but with Sora components I expect it is under $700. Anyone here ever ride one?

The best "deal" I saw was Tiagra/105 on this for $699 clearance:
http://www.ironhorsebikes.com/produc...mph_comp.shtml
It was on a web page which I can't find now. Has anyone ridden this either?

Performance has their house brand road bike on sale now which would fit this price range also.

I couldn't disagree with you more! Sora is 8spd, Tiagra is 9spd, Sora uses those thumb triggers, Tiagra uses a paddle system like 105/Ultegra/Dura Ace. Night and day difference. Upgrading to 9spd 105/Ultegra shifters coming off a 9spd Tiagra bike is a lot cheaper than upgrading a Sora 8spd bike to 9spd shifters! I have Tiagra's right now, they were used with about 1,300mi when I got them, they now have about 3,700mi on them and still work flawlessly. Although I do secretly hope they break so I can get my Ultegras

If you're upgrading before putting some serious wear on the drivetrain, then you probably made an error in the initial decision making process. As such, it shouldn't be "a lot cheaper" since you should be upgrading/replacing worn components.

So you need...

-chain
-cassette
-rear derailleur
-shifters

vs.

-shifters

Its still cheaper going from Tiagra to 105/Ultegra shifters, unless you are planning on waiting until your Sora rear derailleur is "worn out". The way people upgrade typically is piece by piece and thats a much more viable option if everything is already 9spd. I mean, you can use 9spd 105 shifters on a worn out cassette and chain. It won't work great, but it will work. You can't you 9spd 105 shifters on a 8spd cassette, worn out or new.

Giant OCR-3, $600

This was/is my first road bike since an old 10 speed in high school, and I love it so far. I really wasn't sure if a road bike would suit my needs (plus I don't have wads of cash lying around), so a sub $700 was definitely the way for me to go.
