Review
If you are looking for a single speed city commuter bicycle and have a budget to deal with, the Giordno Rapido is one of your best options. Coming with a light-weight aluminium frame, this bike weighs around 26.5 pounds which is perfectly fine for a commuter bike. Ride quality offered by this bike is quite smooth and it offers two modes – fixie or single speed mode. Riding this bike in both the modes is a unique and quite enjoyable experience. Kenda tires of this bike are thicker compared to traditional road bike tires and can handle the city roads quite effectively.
The brakes of Giordano Rapido are made of plastic and are quite cheap. The seat is pretty hard and not comfortable at all. If you are planning to ride this bike hard, you might want to have them replaced. The pedals are also quite cheap and you might have to upgrade those as well.
Apart from the few glitches mentioned above, this bike delivers an excellent and quite impressive show for its price. Riding this bike is a soothing and comfortable experience and as a city commuter bike, this one succeeds in flying colours. The Giordano Rapido is ideal for getting to work, campus rides, fitness riding or just for coasting along your town or city streets and if you are looking for a bike with simplistic features  under a small budget, this one can be a perfect choice.
