Review
The RD7 is another offering from the impressive product line of Micargi. This one is a single speed city commuter bike which aims to target those buyers who are looking for a bicycle which can be used for commuting within the city, exercising or just coasting along the city streets. This bike comes with an aluminium frame and a steel fork. The ride quality offered by this bike is quite smooth and riding the bike is really fun.
The bike is sufficiently light and it is extremely easy to handle it. The downsides of this bike are the shifters, wheels and the saddle. The shifters are not at all precise and getting to the right gear is sometimes a problem. The wheels are pretty cheap and have a tendency to get out of alignment pretty often whereas the saddle is not that comfortable.
Apart from the glitches mentioned above, the bike performs well. It is ideal as a city commuter bike and offers a soothing, enjoyable and hassle free ride experience. The price at which this bike is available is quite reasonable and this one is certainly worth considering if you are looking for a city commuter bicycle within a small budget.
