Review
The Barracuda  Team Road Bike is an entry level road bike for budding riders who are looking for a high-performance bike to sweat it out on the roads or tracks. Barracuda  has a rich collection of road bikes and this price range, they offer multiple bikes withj almost similar specifications. The Barracuda  Vivante is a close match for this one. These two bikes have almost the same specification with some minor differences and the performances are comparable.
The bike looks great but like its cousin the Barracuda  Vivante, it is a bit on the heavier side for a racing bicycle. There are some bad reviews about the gearing of this bike although gearing is not as bad as it might seem to be after reading the reviews. Yes, there is scope of improvement but gear shifting is satisfactory in this bike. This bike does not ship assembled and it you have not done assembled a bike before and do not feel comfortable, take it to your local bike shop and have it assembled there. The derailleurs and the brakes need some tune up before you start riding it.
Overall, the bike performs well and can definitely be considered as an option if you are looking for a slick and high-performance road bicycle. However, it is strongly recommended to check out the other bikes on offer in this price range by Barracuda  especially the Barracuda  Vivante to make sure you buy the one that suits you the best.
