Review
The ECOSMO road racing bicycle is an entry level road bike by ECOSMO. This bike comes with a steel frameset. It weighs around 14 kilograms which is pretty steep for a racing bicycle. Although the bike quite easy to handle, a couple of pounds lesser would have worked to its advantage. Ride quality of this bike is quite smooth and this means it can also be used for commuting.
Assembling this bike should not be a problem as it ships 80% assembled. However, if you have not done anything like this before and do not feel confident, feel free to take it to your local bike shop to get it assembled. The gears and the brakes are not well tuned out of the box and need to be tuned before you start to ride the bike. The tires are pretty low end which is hardly a surprise for bikes in this category. The wheels also have a tendency of going out of alignment pretty often.
Overall, this bike looks alright. As a racing bike, it has the capability of clocking some fairly high speeds. The riding position is very comfortable and the ride experience offered is quite smooth. Replace the tires, upgrade the pedals and tune up the gears and the brakes and this bike is as good as they come. The price seems fairly reasonable and it certainly delivers the value for your money.
