Critical Cycles Diamond Frame 7-Speed Shimano Hybrid Urban Commuter Road BicycleI was getting tired of never finding parking at my university and decided I’d get a bike. I wanted something a little bit better than the cheap bikes you find at Wal-Mart. I looked around online and finally came across the Critical Cycles Diamond Frame 7-Speed Shimano Hybrid Urban Commuter Road Bike. The bike had some great reviews and had a great retro look. So I ordered it online and it came a week later. It was pretty easy to assemble, even for a bike assembly virgin.

I love this bike. It gets me to class early everyday and I get a lot of complements on the bike daily. It looks much more expensive that what I paid for it and so far I’ve had zero problems with it. It’s a very solid bike. The Critical Cycles Diamond Frame Hybrid Road Bike is also very comfortable to ride. This bike is also a lot lighter than I though I’d be so that’s definitely another pro.

By no means am I a bike or cycling expert but I think the Critical Cycles Diamond Frame Hybrid Road Bike is a great bike for the money.
