Customer Thoughts:

For people looking for mid-tier road bikes for sale, Giordano Libero 1.6 is a great choice, according to road bike reviews. The bike has all the qualities of a more expensive bike for half of the cost. The bike is visually appealing and looks nice.

The bike is almost fully assembled in the box. Consumers enjoy this convenience. Tuning was a bit challenging. The shifting was especially challenging. A professional may need to attend to the assembly or else the gears will rub against the derailer. Some people who are mechanically inclined enjoy the challenge and would prefer to make the adjustments themselves. Bikers who do not utilize all of the settings feel they are not getting the most out of the bike.

The bike arrives to the home quickly and the assembly is fast. The packaging is adequate enough to avoid damage to the bike. Though the bike is entry level and has the lowest level Shimano components, consumers will be disappointed if their bike arrive damaged. This is why the company pays attention to the packaging on road bikes for sale.

After 1100 miles, one consumer had to only make a few adjustments. The adjustments, in this instance, were to account for cable stretch. The tires are prone to flats. The Kenda tires are affordable, but the tires are not durable. Many consumers upgrade for this reason. The fork and seat may also be upgraded. Some consumers upgrade the fork to the Satellite Plus Bontrager Carbon fork. The fork may be purchased for $43 on websites such as eBay.

Numerous upgrades are possible with the Giordano Libero 1.6. Many consumers easily spend an additional $100 in upgrades to make the bike customizable to their preferences. The bike can approximate some higher end bikes, but is not recommended for racing.

Some bikers grow concerned about the white color. White is visually appealing and reflective, but the color is also prone to getting dirty. Some consumers would prefer another color for this reason. Out of the box, this color is eye-catching to most. The wear and tear shows within weeks.
