The HASA Shimano 105 Road Bike is the earlier version of the newly launched HASA 2015. This bike, like its successor, can be used for group or club rides, fitness riding, commuting or just for coasting along the town or city streets. This bike comes with an aluminium frame which makes it strong and light while proving just the right level of stiffness. It ships with a carbon fork which offers smooth ride quality by absorbing the hits off the road. In contrast to the Shimano 2400 series shifters used in its 2015 edition cousin, this one uses Shimano Ultegra shifters. Shimano Ultegra has an excellent track record and it rises up to the occasion once again; shifting gears is smooth, efficient and seamless. This bike offers a 30 speed gear range which enables it to handle any kind of terrain with utmost ease. The AVID brakes of this bike provide sheer braking force and offers superior control and stability while braking at high speeds. This bike comes to you offering a complete package of speed, performance and endurance and the price tag associated with this bike makes it an extremely lucrative option.

HASA Carbon Road Bike 2012 is an entry level road bike which can be used for hardcore riding, commuting, fitness riding or just for cruising along your town or city streets. There is a lot of confusion over the frame material of this bike and we should clear it here: the frame is made of aluminium, not carbon! The fork of the bike is made of carbon though and it does an excellent job in absorbing the hits and bumps off the road. Weighing only 19.8 pounds, this bike has the ability of clocking some fairly high speeds.
The bike does not ship assembled and assembly should not pose a problem if you have already done something like this before. However, if you face any difficulty during assembly, take it to your local bike shop. The derailleurs of this bike are not well tuned out of the box and need some tune up before you start riding this bike.
Overall this bike performs well. If you are looking to get into biking, this can be a great choice On the other hand, if you are somebody who is looking for a reliable commuter which can also be used for occasional weekend or club rides, this one perfectly fits the bill. The price of this bike is extremely reasonable and it certainly delivers the bang for your bucks.
