Giordano Rapido Single Speed Road Bike Review

Posted August 19, 2013 by admin in Bike Reviews

Giordano Rapido Single Speed Road BikeThe Giordano Rapido Single Speed Road Bike is a good yet inexpensive bike. Its basically the same bike as the Takara Kabuto road bike except for the color and the material the frame is made out of. The Rapido is made out of a more durable steel while the Takara is made out of lighter Aluminum.

The stock wheel set that comes with the bike is fairly nice and I was very pleased with it. I’m also a big fan of the flip flop hub because I like to be able to switch up ridding styles. Things I wasn’t so fond of were the pedals which were really cheap, but also very cheap to replace. I also didn’t like the brakes so much but there decent for the price.

All together for the price your getting a really nice decent bike. If your looking for a cheap alternative to all the ridiculously expensive road bike out there this is a good bike to get.
