Entry level Inexpensive Road Bikes
« on: 17, May, 2020, 04:45:24 PM »
I'm in the market for a $400 - $900 road bike and am wondering if anyone can offer a recommendation in this price range. I have read great reviews on the Vilano Forza 3.0 and the Diamondback Century 2.
Any recommendations from real riders will be a great help.
Thank you.

I'd have a chat with Liam here on the forum, I believe he has a Planet-X road bike for sale?


[Updated] Ooops, my bad - I skimmed over you're question a little fast.
Not sure on either bike, or new bikes in that price-range. But I would be thinking that the lower your budget is the more I'd be thinking of looking into good second hand bikes.

Hiya,


I do quite a bit of road riding and the usual suspects at this price point rule.


Decathlon - Triban
Halfords - Boardman
Pinnacle
Vitus


Diamondback have upped their game in the last few years but I'm not familiar with their road range.


I've never heard of Vilano, it sounds like you are US based? if so you might bet better answers asking a US based website and not an Irish one.
